Up Wedding // The Rustic Barn at Prairie Gardens Wisconsin


The brightly colored, high energy of a true and ever lasting love was the theme of  Saturday’s wedding; inspired by the Disney movie UP.
I am super thankful to have been able to document it.
Their ceremony was in a beautifully decorated Barn, which was a sweet change from the traditional ballroom venue. I really loved their pastel-pink-streamer back-drop, their beyond incredible Wedding Cake ((HUGE Thanks to Jerry’s Mother)) and the uniquely styled antique furniture throughout. The Rustic Barn at Prairie Gardens Wisconsin was the perfect choice venue for A+J.
With an infinite amount of smiles coming from Andrea + Jerry,  I am BEYOND ecstatic to share these images with you.
Prepare yourself for gorgeousness!

    Beautiful beautiful wedding! Is this a new venue in Burlington? I am getting married next year and from a small town near there and can’t seem to find their contact information anywhere. Might you know how to get in contact with them? Thanks!

  7. Andrea Kane says:

    Thank you to all of you for your super sweet comments!! It was such a fabulous day and we couldn’t have asked for more than to spend it with our family and friends!
    I just wanted to say a quick note to Megan as well, Tim and Renee are owners of the property. You can email me at batzlera@msoe.edu if you are interested in their contact information as I attempted to click on their shutterfly link just now and it didn’t seem to work. They were AMAZING people to work with. I cannot say enough things about them! We wouldn’t have changed a thing.
    Either way! Happy hunting as I know EXACTLY what you are going through to make your day perfect!:)
