Ben + Jen’s ‘That 70’s Show’ Wedding :)

Ben + Jen’s wedding day was full of lots of family, great food,¬†and a whole warehouse of quirky decor, thanks to the couple’s collection as well as Weddings by Nancy. ūüôā The only thing missing was Ben’s brother, his wife and their brand new baby (born the night before the wedding).¬†Ben and Jen are a hilarious, fun-loving, goofy, vegan couple — we really didn’t know what to expect when we showed up at their wedding. haha. ūüôā But we liked it and we think you will too:

The Best Wisconsin Wedding Venues

Best Midwest Weddding Venues

We photograph almost exclusively in outdoor-based environments because we feel they are the best places that allow us to tell wedding stories that are full of color, movement and life. Our favorites are those with personal meaning to the couple that they also find beautiful and inspiring.

Over time, we’ve compiled a list of great, accessible, unique wedding vendors and venues in and around Wisconsin (a few are in Minnesota/Illinois/Iowa/Michigan). We plan to keep it updated as we connect with more great people and places that cater to weddings in their own unique ways. While we absolutely love backyard, one-of-a-kind wedding venues with awesome tents, we know that it’s not an option for everyone. So here are a few of our other favorite venues and vendors to help you in your planning! And if you are dreaming of a Camp Wedding Location or here for an Intimate Wedding Location (less than 75 people), go here first.
