Adam and Brittany were blessed with a beautiful wedding day. It was basically perfect. Except for maybe some mosquitoes and a little discomfort caused by Adam's shoes. More on that later. They had God at the center of the whole day, which is always a delight and encouragement to us. I think this was the first wedding we have shot for a couple that attends our church in Cedar Rapids, so it was fun to share that community. We started the day with the girls having hair and makeup done at Elevate Salon on the north side of Cedar Rapids. We watched Brittany get her hair, makeup and nails done all in the same chair. It was really quite impressive. ... READ MORE

Fortunately Maxwell and Dana's wedding was at the Coralville Marriott, that was more toward the southern side of the storm and only lightly affected by the devastating winds that hit five days before. These two took everything in stride, and they were an absolute pleasure to serve and work alongside. Two of the nicest and most genuine people you wil ... READ MORE

I've told the story over and over this year. Isaac and Alyssa's story is not unlike most that we've been a part of in 2020. They were planning the wedding of their dreams at a beautiful venue, surrounded by a host friends and family. But then COVID... They simplified things quite a bit for their wedding day, choosing to basically have only immediate family present and with that, scaling back their wedding party quite a bit this go-round. They plan on a post-COVID 2021 reception celebration. Despite having to scale things way back for this year, I got the impression that there were no regrets going forward with their small, intimate wedding th ... READ MORE
