I photographed this beautiful Heritage Prairie Farm wedding on a perfect spring day in May. The colors for this stylish group were a dreamy wine and quartz combination with fun florals created by the bride, the groom’s sisters, and the bridesmaids.
Jen and Bryan met working at Target and were engaged shortly after. They planned their wedding in 5 months and it went off without a hitch. Their beautiful, intimate barn ceremony was so pretty with the hanging lights and old-fashioned white church pews. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails behind the barn as the sun set.
Dinner at this venue was a true treat for all the guests. For example, it started with passed appetizers of fried chicken and cheddar herb biscuits along with zucchini pitas. After guests were seated, dinner was served family style alongside homemade bread with whipped honey butter (the honey comes from the farm, of course).
Dessert was doughnuts. I am so happy people finally realized doughnuts are awesome and belong at weddings! This past year, this fried treat has become The “It” wedding cake to have and Jennifer and Bryan did it up right. They had a doughnut board, a doughnut tower, and a doughnut cake. All from the amazing Stan’s Donuts in Chicago, IL.
Not only was dinner a great experience, but guests also enjoyed late night smores over a campfire, popcorn, a cotton candy machine, and sneaking off to the goat barn for some fun selfies.
