With the weather warming up in the last few weeks (ha, just kidding), the last thing I want to do is reflect on winter - but I'll make an exception to gush about the beautiful winter ceremonies we celebrated on the farm this past January...and to show some love to our amazing preferred vendor, photographer Tanya Schwendinger of Precious Moments Photography, LLC.
Although some couples shy away from the cold and snow, these two and their families warmed up the barn with their fun, their love, and their excitement to begin their married lives together.
Tanya finds beauty and emotion in every shot. "I always like to capture the whole day as story-telling material...what I look for most is emotion between loved ones - the first look between the father and the bride, tears between the mother and her son or daughter, the first kiss, and the love between the bride and groom," she says.
Those cold Wisconsin winters don't faze us: in-floor heating keeps our guests warm and comfortable on even the chilliest of days. And even thought it might be stark outside, the barn provides a great backdrop for any vows.
"I am always amazed at how beautiful and unique the place can look for any style of the ceremony/reception," says Tanya. "There are nice places to step outside for beautiful sunset pictures and there are great textures in the old barns that give the photos a look that is both captivating and timeless!"
Congratulations to our lovely couples!
