I really enjoyed collaborating with Jess and Brandon. They're an outdoorsy couple who focus on compassion and giving to others. Drawn to each other because of the way they each light up a room as well as a focus on humor, they share that they have never run out of topics to converse about even after two years of being together.
Their proposal story includes a day at Devil's Lake, a slippery hike up to Devil's Staircase and the song "From Eden" by Hozier. We met up for their engagement photoshoot at Lapham Peak in Delafield and it was filled with lots of mature oak trees and raindrops at the end. This couple was all for splashing around a bit and the resulting photos were so intimate and moody.
Jess and Brandon wanted a similar vibe to be showcased at their fall Wisconsin wedding at Rustic Manor 1848.
Their day was beautiful. They opted for an outdoor ceremony nestled among the trees. I definitely think you'll feel a "woodland fairy" vibe as you look through their gallery below.
Jess and Brandon's biggest wedding advice is to not let anyone's opinion get to you... and do not forget that your wedding day is about you and the love of your life. It's not really about anyone else.
Check out the beautiful wedding day moments photographed at Rustic Manor 1848 in Hartland, Wisconsin. As a lover of outdoor scenery, this venue offers rolling hills, trees and seasonal flowers to play with!
