Jon and Callie met and fell in love at the University of Minnesota in Duluth but it wasn’t until the last day of medical school that Jon had planned a surprise proposal. As the graduation reception came to an end, Jon stood to give a speech to friends and family but instead went down on one knee asking Callie to be his bride! These two are such a beautiful couple and the Hidden Meadow and Barn in Pepin, Wisconsin was the perfect setting to host their big day!
From the rolling hills, to the gorgeous fields and rustic buildings, we are completely in love with every detail of this venue! Their team is amazing to work with and made this day a breeze from start to finish! The Bridal Cottage was the perfect place to showcase Callie’s gorgeous dress by Galina from David’s Bridal. Fresh Impressions did a beautiful job on hair as did Ashley York on makeup! After spending time with the ladies, we stopped at the Groom’s Cottage with the men before heading out for Jon’s first look with Callie at the iconic double barn doors at the ceremony site. From the moment they saw each other, Callie and Jon were all smiles and we had so much fun taking photos together! We headed into town for some stunning shots at the lake and then took full advantage of their gorgeous venue! E.L. Design put together gorgeous bouquets giving the perfect pop of color to the day!
The ceremony was beautiful complete with the couple surprising their mothers with roses and giving one in memory of Callie’s beautiful grandmother. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed dinner by River Valley Catering and donuts from Hanisch Bakery. The evening ended with dancing with Adagio Djay Entertainment and absolutely stunning golden hour photos in the field! This breathtakingly beautiful day was perfect in every way and we are so honored to have been a part of it!
