Eloping in Wisconsin at Gibraltar Rock // Carly + Wyatt

September 30, 2021

Are you from Midwest? If you’re not, you may wonder why some would consider eloping in Wisconsin.

Rather than tell you all the reasons why us midwesterners love and choose to stay in Wisconsin, I would rather show you this beautiful state through my camera’s lens. And why you may reconsider an elopement destination in Wisconsin afterwards.

One question I often hear as an elopement photographer is, “What’s so special about Wisconsin? Isn’t it mostly farms and cows?” One might think so, and it’s true. There are many farms with cows grazing amongst the green and golden fields, including my own. What may not be seen as frequently, are the unique and breathtaking views – tucked behind, beside, and between these proud Wisconsin farms. One of these hidden gems is Gibraltar Rock near Lodi, WI – a perfect location for a couple looking to elope in the midwest.

What if you could have an elopement looking over miles and miles of land, with a bird’s eye view, and just you and your soon-to-be spouse? Would you take the intimate elopement with your person or the large celebration?

Carly and Wyatt chose a wedding day spent just the two of them. And it was absolutely incredible. Though most choose a white elegant wedding dress, Carly chose a stunning, timeless, intricate black wedding dress that could breathe life into any photo.
