Indoor & Outdoor Wedding Venues in Wisconsin | Wisconsin Wedding Photographer

Wedding Venues the first or second thing booked when you are in the planning stages of your wedding. The venue no matter if you have dreamed of your wedding since you were little or since Pinterest was invented. It is where your wedding comes to life, the bones of your wedding details complementing the table settings and wedding attire. There are so many beautiful venues here in Wisconsin, some of these I haven’t heard of before or they are new, but all stunning in their own and unique ways.

Here are some of my barn and outdoor favorites that I have shot at or have been DYING to shoot at! Venues that are unique, beautiful, and perfect for any size of wedding! There is something about saying your vows under a beautiful tree or while the sun beams down on you through the barn boards. I have had conversations with clients about how their family wants them to get married in a church, but their heart is not with that idea. We agree that it has nothing to do with tradition – it has to do with the idea they have of their wedding day.

As my Mom told me once – “God is not only in a church, he is everywhere.”

Outdoor Wedding Venues Wisconsin

Indoor ones too!

Even though I adore outdoor weddings I am a HUGE lover of architecture and history! Growing up I would get lost in architecture books – the reason why I went to school for Interior Design. I wanted to learn as much as I could about the design aspects of old buildings along with the history behind them. Here are some of my favorite indoor and history filled venues, that are filled with character and design.

PRITZLAFF / MILWAUKEE WISCONSIN – historic and stunning! Katie& Ari
