Vintage Grain Bin Ceremony with a Pabst Blue Ribbon Wedding Theme

Historic Grain Bin Wedding with a Pabst Blue Ribbon Twist · Merrimac, Wisconsin

Outdoor Vintage Grain Bin with a Pabst Blue Ribbon Wedding Theme in Merrimac, Wisconsin

I met Tasha and Jake about a year ago when they answered my model call for apple blossom sessions on the farm. They started telling me about their dreams for the wedding day to be held on their friend’s property in front of a historic grain bin foundation. They went on to tell me how they met at a local softball field (softball still being a very big part of their lives), their love for all things vintage and antique, as well as being super Pabst Blue Ribbon fans (with an entire room in their home dedicated to the brew). I knew right then and there I had to be a part of this wedding day! This outdoor event, in front of a historic grain bin foundation, ending with a Pabst Blue Ribbon wedding theme twist is definitely one for the (softball) record books!

As if all of this wasn’t enough, the couple incorporated so many personal touches throughout the day. They really made the wedding day theirs. Not only did Tasha craft all of the flowers herself, along with Jake changing into his (now infamous) Pabst Blue Ribbon suit for the reception, they also had a really unique unity ceremony. The couple had the officiant capture a Polaroid picture of them mid-ceremony which they then locked into a box along with personal notes. Tasha and Jake plan to open it each year, on their anniversary, adding in new photos as their family continues to grow.

PS – Jake crafted the “Kluender” sign that was a focal point of the ceremony locale (as well as their ring box). I have already requested an order for a sign here on Cassell Hollow Farm, but don’t you all agree he should get a little side gig started?

Hi!  I'm Jen and I am honored you have taken the time to get to know me, and my family, a little bit better.  In addition to being a destination wedding photographer, I am the mom to a spunky little boy.  We adopted him when he was born and he is the light of our lives.  We currently live on a 34 acre farm in La Farge, Wisconsin, the heart of the Driftless Region.  In our spare time, we enjoy traveling as a family, caring for our small flock of chickens, tending to the garden, cooking, hiking, and crafting.  Every year we enjoy having our family photos taken on our property - we truly know how important it is to capture (and savor) each and every moment, milestone, and memory.

I will provide you with a gallery from your wedding day that elicits joy, that recreates feelings from memories, and provides romantic nostalgia when seeing the photos for the first time and every time thereafter.  You will receive photos that show true emotions as well as traditional styling and I will create everything without forced poses or cheesy smiles.
