North Central Wisconsin Senior & Portrait Photographers James & Katie Stokes Located in Medford, Wisconsin // Rustic Barn Wedding
After a few cancelations due to weather, I finally was able to make the hike up to Chetek / Hillsdale to capture Zach & Erin’s engagement session. Zach’s grandmother’s cabin, which he spent many a summer, was a perfect location filled with great memories and ‘Mr. Mouse’ – one of the biggest Wisconsin mouse on record. Zach and Erin took advantage of the cool weather and caught up on some genuine snuggle time on the dock. After grandma and mom fed us a doughnut, we headed to Hillsdale to visit The Enchanted Barn, where their July wedding will be taking place. I learned a valuable lesson before the wedding, Erin isn’t the biggest fan of horses, and so riding one on the wedding day might be out of the question. These were not your ordinary horses; they were some pretty robust draft mules.
Katie and I can’t wait to capture their Rustic Wisconsin Barn Wedding, which just so happens to include my brother.
Thanks for allowing to us to capture these intimate moments with the two of you! Can’t wait to see what the future has in store ☺
Growing up in Portage County allowed for me to experience the joys that are Polish Weddings. They are more than a marriage ceremony and more than a party – they are a reunion of sorts celebrating the merger of two families. For Nate and Kate , their wedding was all that and a bull ride! Their Country-Style wedding fit their personalities perfectly and allowed them to have a day wearing cowboy boots/hats and simply having a great time as their first day of marriage. Their wedding took place at St. Mary of Mount Carmel church in Amherst, Wisconsin with a reception held in Iola at the Iola Car Show Grounds. Main attraction at their wedding was their mechanical bull and Polka band. It isn’t Polish wedding without Polka music. Thank you both of allowing Katie and I to capture your beautiful day! J&K
