Tienter-Ertl couple to celebrate true small town wedding


By Angie Rodenburg

As many people from small towns know it can be difficult to find love in a community where you are related to almost everyone--and if you find someone you’re not related to you just might want to confirm with grandma. Lucky for bride-to-be Grace Tienter of Preston, she met her fiance Marcus while attending Western Technical College in La Crosse, Wis. Between goofing around in classes, studying, and the occasional party, Grace and Marcus developed a great friendship. They bonded over their mutual love for cleaning, promising each other to share their vacuum and mop. They never would have thought that one day they would promise to share their cleaning supplies forever.

After being merely friends for a year, Grace and Marcus knew there was something new blossoming in their relationship. A year into dating Grace recalled knowing she wanted to marry Marcus. “He makes me feel happy about everything!” Grace gushed about her fiance.

After four more years of dating, Grace’s dream finally became a reality when Marcus popped the question this past September while taking a walk along the Mississippi River in La Crosse. “It was a beautiful, warm night,” Grace recalled. “I was completely taken by surprise! I had given up hope!” said Grace. Despite Grace noticing his racing heart when they hugged, Marcus had managed to keep the proposal a complete surprise.

Now that the proposal has been made, Grace has been busy planning for a June wedding. The couple plans to wed at the Tienter family farm in Preston. The farm has a gorgeous view that overlooks Forestville State Park and the Iron Bridge; a unique quality few brides are able to have at their wedding. It is special for Grace that she is able to get married at her childhood home surrounded by friends and family. Grace’s older sisters, Katrina and Jane, also had part of their wedding days at the family farm. Not only is it where the sisters grew up, but it will now be a place where the family’s most treasured memories are made.

“I love knowing everyone and everyone knowing me,” Grace said about living and getting married in a small town. “There are multiple generations that know me and my family.” Though it might be quite the change for fiance Marcus, a native of Nina, Wis. to transition from a big city to a small town, he knows that it’s worth it to have Grace take his last name. The first of a lifetime of compromises, I’m sure.
