Rustic Harvest Moon Pond Spring Wedding

 

 

Taylor and Stephen’s Harvest Moon Pond Spring wedding could only be described as their personal Rustic Fairytale.

Their Love Story

Like any great Wisconsin love story, Taylor and Stephen met over football. It was January 2017, and Taylor was there to meet up with some running friends to watch the Packers take on the Falcons in the NFC title game. Stephen, meanwhile, was there rocking’ his “amazingly full and handsome” playoff ‘stache to watch his beloved Patriots take on the Steelers in the AFC title matchup. Conversations ensued about football, babies, and the Bachelor, and the rest is history…

After a strenuous hike up to Siyeh Pass in Glacier National Park, Stephen claimed that he wanted to get a good photo of them, so he set a timer on his camera and propped it up. After a few attempts to “get the angle just right,” he got down on one knee and captured the perfect proposal photo.

Why a Harvest Moon Pond Spring Wedding?

Taylor & Steven chose Harvest Moon Pond due to the gorgeous outdoor space and the rustic yet modern feel. They fell in love with the willow trees, spacious lawn, and patio space perfect for cocktail hour and games. They also loved having the peace of mind knowing that the beautiful, updated barn was available for the ceremony if there were any weather disruptions— one less thing to worry about when planning the big day!

But on their wedding day, it did not rain. It was a beautiful spring day for the Rustic Fairytale wedding that they always imagined.

A couple of their favorite moments were tearfully reading their handwritten vows and slow dancing in the middle of an impromptu circle of swaying guests to “Piano Man” as the last song of the evening. There was so much magic in the moment.

Advice from the Couple

They do not think that they fully understood the concept of, “it goes by fast” until they woke up the day after their wedding. It truly, truly does go by way too fast. Try to breathe and be fully present as much as possible. How special is it that everyone you know and love came out to celebrate your love? Simply a magical feeling that they will forever be grateful for.

Having Taylor & Stephen here at Harvest Moon Pond was nothing short of magical. We wish them the best going forward in their lives together.
