Devils Punchbowl Engagement Session in Menomonie, WI | Marie & Austin

Just last week it looked like spring was, you know… right around the corner.  And then this morning we woke up to 7 inches of snow… so glad that didn’t happen for Marie & Austin’s Devils Punchbowl Engagement Session in Menomonie, WI.

Marie and Austin met through some mutual friends by chance, or not so much by chance if you ask their friends I’m sure!  It all came together at a local music festival and now they’re not only planning their wedding for this coming August at The Barn on Stoney Hill between Cadott & Cornell but they’re training for the Eau Claire Marathon this coming May.  Just the morning of their engagement session they ran 16 miles in preparation for the marathon!

This past December just about 10 days before Christmas while out for a stroll through Irvine Park to see the Christmas lights, Austin got down on his knee in the band shell with the beautiful Christmas tree and asked Marie to marry him.  In-front of their families and about another 100 people out for a stroll Marie said, YES!

I cannot wait to share with you the rest of their story from their big day this coming August!
