Bethany and Ethan went back to their roots for their rural wedding in Fountain City.
Dana and Andrew's Charming Rustic Wedding at On Twin Lakes
Dana and Andrew's outdoor wedding sums up everything we love about Wisconsin's warm weather season. Nature comes alive with a lush green canopy of tree coverage, flowers bloom in wild, bold colors, and everything feels more relaxed and fun. This couple capitalized on these very characteristics, having their wedding at the beautiful rustic setting of On Twin Lakes. The wedding party's attire, including the bride's lace button-up, figure-flattering gown and the bridesmaids' mismatched pale pastel and neutral palette, all felt easy and effortless while still being on point with a touch-of-vintage theme. Kimberly Williams Photography did an amazing job reproducing the sweet details of the day from behind the camera, and now it's time to share it with you.
From the bride:
It didn’t take us long to fall in love with our wedding venue, On Twin Lakes, located just east of were I grew up. Driving through the owner’s farm, up a winding road, we couldn’t believe the stunning barn that was awaiting our guests on top of a hill, overlooking Twin Lakes. The venue, even with no decorations, was absolutely perfect–rustic, simple, elegant. The owners were the sweetest people and wonderful to work with. They had no reservations, letting us add our own personal style and decoration to the venue. One of the favorites was the handmade table signs made from reclaimed barn wood from my parent’s barn.
A rainy morning transitioned into mid-afternoon and a break in the weather came just five minutes before the ceremony was to start. We narrowly avoided the “Plan B” of getting married in the barn and quickly got the 250 wedding guests outside and seated to begin right on time. The weather was refreshingly cool the remainder of the event as our guests enjoyed yard games, libations, and dancing the night away.
My husband and I were blessed, as it turns out, to accidentally forget about the cake cutting during the dinner hour. We were able to cut the cake privately in the wee hours of the morning as the proprietors of On Twin Lakes looked on in the distance, also celebrating their anniversary the same weekend. It was the perfect ending to our perfect beginning.
