Bold and Rustic Barn Wedding at Farmview Event Barn in Berlin, WI // Zachary + Jocelyn
This country rustic wedding out in the woods of Berlin, Wisconsin was held at a new barn venue called Farmview Event Barn. It was such a fun and bright one for Zachary and Jocelyn with colors like plum, light olive and tangerine. Zachary used to trap on this farm when he was younger, and heard that they were in the process of renovating a barn into a reception hall. So when they both went to the exact same college and both majored in agriculture, booking their wedding at Fairview Event Barn was a no-brainer for them.
The two of them wanted to something unique for their first look. So the groomsmen went on a mission to find colored balloons for them both. They both held them in front of each other, so they didn’t see, and on the count of three they lifted the balloons to take their first look at each other on their wedding day. Their reactions were so sweet. Jocelyn even gave a shy wave over to her soon-to-be-husband as they went in for a hug. They all headed back to Fairwater, where the two of them reside, and said their vows in his family’s church. Immediately following ceremony, the group jumped back on the bus and headed to Green Lake. A place near and dear to their hearts, we captured some of the best bridal portraits on the lake. We even went back to the same spot were Zachary ask Jocelyn to marry her, he reenacted getting down on one knee too!
Surrounded by corn fields, family and friends, these two had the best night filled with dancing, drinks, and yes lots more dancing!
These to met online, and talked for about a month before Jocelyn finally agreed to meet him in person. So he came down to Madison where she was living at the time, took her out to dinner and to mini-golf and the rest is history she says. Soon after they closed on a home together, and later that summer Zach had the best day planned. Apparently he forgot to pull-out chicken for supper one night, so he suggested they go to eat at BoatHouse at the Heidel House Resort & Spa. They had a really nice meal and Jocelyn didn’t expect anything. They had been talking about getting married, and they went to look around the property. They went outside onto the balcony that over looks beautiful Green Lake and that’s where he popped the question. For their wedding, we came back to that very spot and reenacted their wedding proposal. So fun!
Zach is an avid outdoors person, who loves to hunt, fish and trap. He loves his hunting magazines and Saturday morning hunting shows Jocelyn shares. In the winter you’ll find them both out on the frozen lake together ice fishing, which is a favorite for both of them as long as he brings a tent and heater for Jocelyn. In her free time, she loves to run and what she does to relax and unwind. Jocelyn has done a few half marathons and is training for a full marathon very soon! These two are super sweet together and always look out for each other happiness.
