Christian and Julie had a very atypical August wedding day, in that the sun never shone through the clouds and the temperatures never crested above 70. I can say with certainty that every guy in attendance was just fine with that! For a day that had rain forecasted for much of the week leading up, it was quite an acceptable day for the wedding that was almost completely hosted outside - ceremony, dinner and dance party. Christian is an army man, and he had a bevy of military men at his side for his wedding day. We owe a big thanks to all those guys for their service of our country! We appreciate you guys giving so completely of yourselves so ... READ MORE

I feel like every wedding has its own story. I will leave a wedding at the end of the night and come up with several things from each wedding that were unique or central to the story of the day. Sometimes it's a couple overcoming crazy odds; there might have been an outdoor ceremony when it was 200 degrees outside; perhaps it's the absence of a loved one. What I saw as a core theme from Andrew and Hannah's wedding day was the story of Andrew's grandparents (who won the anniversary dance by being married for 60 years), who hail from Jordan and had spent roughly the last 5 months in the States to witness Andrew and his brother's weddings.

I went ahead and ate a cupcake on this day, and I didn't feel bad about it. It was a beautiful day for Noah and Jenae's wedding out at the Celebration Farm, north of Iowa City. It was also a nice day for my birthday. We spent the morning getting ready at the Coralville Marriott. Once Jenae had her dress put on, she did a first look with the first man in her lifeā€”her dad. Dad insisted that he keep his sunglasses on, and he just about had me convinced that he had some sort of retinal disability that required him to wear them. Turns out, he just knew Jenae was going to make him cry, and he wanted to hide behind them. Well, she did make him cr ... READ MORE

Kara (with a K) and I had never met Mike and Cara (with a C) in person before their wedding day since they reside in California. Yet, from the moment we arrived, they treated us as friends and were extremely gracious and hospitable. No wedding day is about us and how we are treated, but our experience with them just goes to show the kind of quality people they are. Mike and Cara with a C, it was a real pleasure getting to know you guys and to be a part of your wedding day! We really appreciate you choosing to have us along for the ride, and we hope you dig the photos! We started the day getting ready at the DoubleTree in Cedar Rapids. Afte ... READ MORE

Kevin and Jillian know how to throw a party. And a really good looking one as well! With a herculean effort from Blissful Events by Abbey, I think their vision for the wedding day came together really beautifully. There were some pesky rain showers that came through the area at an inconvenient time, but almost everything else was perfect. The bonus of the rain showers was being able to even more fully incorporate and capture the different elements of Jillian and Abbey's wedding design. We started the day at the Wave Length salon in Iowa City for hair and makeup. The bride and groom then got dressed at the Hilton Garden Inn of downtown Iowa ... READ MORE
