Marie & Austin’s | August Wedding at The Barn on Stoney Hill

Marie & Austin’s August wedding at The Barn on Stoney Hill was much different from their engagement session earlier this spring… this spring we still had snow on the ground from our very late warm up… this past weekend… it was almost 90 degrees!  But, I’ll definitely take it over bucket loads of that white stuff!

Seven years ago this summer Marie & Austin met at Country Fest through mutual friends – but it wasn’t until four years later that they started dating and then this past December, Austin popped the question to Marie.  Just after Marie’s Master’s graduation they gathered both of their families for a walk through Irvine Park to look at the Christmas lights in Chippewa Falls.  Austin asked for a picture by the gazebo with the beautiful decorated tree and that’s where he asked Marie to spend the rest of their lives together.

Of course she said YES!

So, this past weekend Marie & Austin gathered their family & friends at The Barn on Stoney Hill.  They were married across from the barn overlooking the tall swaying grasses & blue sky.  They laughed, they cried and they danced.  It was pretty perfect!
