This past October, Autumn (that felt like Winter) came quickly to Madison, Wisconsin. We traveled here to meet Bryan & Daniell and to document their special wedding day at The Century Barn Events.
Before starting our day, we took a little drive in our rental and scouted the beautiful farmland surrounding Bryan & Daniell’s home. We were met with gorgeous green grasses and colorful Autumn leaves. The skies were completely overcast but we were lucky to have the rain hold off.
As soon as we arrived at the couple’s home, where the bride would be getting ready, Daniell greeted us with a smile and a pair of hand warmers for each of us. It was so thoughtful and completely needed for the freezing day that awaited us. Bryan & Daniell are quite the athletic power couple and both have countless Ironman medals hanging proudly in their home! These two are both avid cyclists and love competing in races together. So it was a perfect plan for these two to start their day by getting in a quick bike ride through their beautiful town. We loved that they asked us to join them to document this part of their regular routine. They even had “JUST” and “MARRIED” spelled out on each of their bike’s license plates. And Daniell even surprised Bryan with matching “Palmer” jerseys for their morning ride. Perfect touches! We had an absolute blast getting to see these two in their element and we were so grateful that they didn’t let the sudden drop in temperature change their fun wedding day plans.
After their morning bike ride, the two went their separate ways to get ready for the ceremony. We were stunned when we pulled up to the venue and got to see the big Century Barn. The crazy winds kept this ceremony even more intimate with everyone huddling in the barn to keep warm. We adored the dramatic light this ceremony spot had to offer. Bryan & Daniell kept things simple with just a “best man” and a “bro of honor.” We enjoyed getting to witness these two sweet families come together in celebration.
Daniell has some super cool, untraditional details including her bouquet and Bryan’s boutonniere made of wooden flowers. They were awesome! We also spent the day geeking out over Bryan’s custom built Shelby Cobra, which we were sure to include in some windy one-on-one’s with the newlyweds!
Bryan & Daniell, thank you for flying us out to Wisconsin for your super special day! We loved getting to capture every moment, for you. Best wishes to you both!!
