Katie and Billy are getting married next summer on July 15th, 2017 at Tumbledown Barn in Verona, Wisconsin.
Katie and Billy grew up in the suburbs of New Jersey. This past winter they adopted a new life in Wisconsin! Welcome! While driving the cross country road trip to their new life, Billy asked Katie to marry him. She said yes and off they set on this new adventure together.
Since, they have fallen head over heels for Wisconsin. They knew a barn wedding was in their future. They chose Tumbledown Barn in Verona. This place is THE idillic farm, home, outdoor setting for a wedding. Katie and Billy were lucky enough to have me shoot their engagement session one year to the date pre wedding at the barn. Cool!
I was like YEAHH!!!! As soon as I opened the barn doors and switched on the lights, the photos came to mind! Creative brain exploding here!
Katie and Billy helped me move some chairs and slide the wagon the perfect position for the first few photos. Then they played horseshoes, sang the “Sound of Music” under the big willow, and enjoyed the tree swing. We could have spent hours in the breezy sunny setting. The resident dog even joined in for a few photo ops. AWE!
We were up for more adventure to finish the session. We drove to Wingra Boats and Billy rented a canoe for he and Katie. The staff at Wingra were so nice and helpful!!! They paddled, explored, and really took in what Wisconsin and Madison has to offer them. I cannot wait until July 15th, 2017 when they say I do under the big oak tree at Tumbledown Barn.
Cheers! – Erin Melissa
