Summer Norskedalen Wedding in Coon Valley, WI | Stephanie & Dana

Stephanie and Dana were married in a sweet & pretty summer Norskedalen Wedding in Coon Valley, WI this past weekend.  With little historic buildings near the tourist part of the property and lovely rolling hills for a ceremony backdrop it was perfect for these two with a bit of Norse history.  The sun was shining, the guests arrived and they walked down the aisle of chairs set in a field tucked into the Norskedalen arboretum.

Stephanie and Dana met about eight years ago with a group of mutual friends.  They went to a movie in LaCrosse at tthe Rivoli and after a few pitchers of beer, laughing and enjoying the evening they parted ways.  Dana texted Steph the next day and, although Stephanie was worried that Dana would run scared because she had a toddler it was the complete opposite.  These two have shared many happy and sad memories and will be welcoming a sweet little baby this January after two angel babies have been born to heaven.

After their little ceremony tucked in the hills Steph, Dana and their family & friends headed off for Fox Hollow Golf course down the road in Barre Hills where they danced and enjoyed the evening with a little help from a local favorite The Grilled Cheese Experience.  So happy to have been the one to document your day – congratulations to the both of you!  Wishing you the very best!

These two on the left were not having any part of walking down the aisle and it made the guests giggle. THE BEST!
