Chugging through our busy November, we had the privilege of joining Scott and Kari for their beautiful and emotional wedding day at Ushers Ferry on the west side of Cedar Rapids. It felt like a perfect setting for a winter-ish wedding with its lodge-like feel and the snow that was lingering around outside. They built a nice palette as well, with the navy suits and dresses that were accented by golds and rich jewel tones. It was very tastefully put together. I asked Scott as we were preparing for the first look if he was nervous, and he replied something like, "No, everything about the day has seemed so perfect and right." That was pretty beau ...

Jeff and Stephanie originally hail from Iowa, and they met here while in college. After graduating, they moved out to Colorado, where it sounds like they are now quite the outdoorsy and adventurous couple! Even though their wedding day was the first time that we got to meet in person, I have really enjoyed getting to know these guys, and I think they could be friends with anyone. They are good people, and they had an incredible Saturday for their wedding. Jeff tried to parlay his wedding day luck of getting his girl, great weather, an epic sunset and the presence of family/friends with a bet on Iowa State to pull off a big upset over Oklahoma ...

It's nice that Halloween is now the unofficial start of winter, right? We spent the first part of winter last weekend in southeast Iowa for Scott and Kayla's early November wedding. The ceremony was at St Mary's Catholic Church is West Point, Iowa, and that is where Scott and Kayla finished getting ready. There was crying that happened before any first looks, so you knew the emotion was going to be rich throughout the day. After getting dressed, Kayla was able to get some tears out of both her dad and Scott during their first looks before the ceremony. As I mentioned, it was not the warmest day of the year on their wedding day, but we still d ... READ MORE

This fall has been nuts weather-wise, and I feel like it has been cooler than usual. We've had a few nice days sprinkled in here and there, but generally it's been pretty cold, and now we're even looking at some October snow?! Aaron and Evelyn's wedding was at Bella Sala in Tiffin, Iowa, and they were planning an outdoor ceremony to take advantage of the venue's picturesque waterfall and landscaping. But, they were dealt one of the fall's colder than usual days and eventually decided against getting married outside (it was the right choice, guys). On the bright side, it was also supposed to rain all over their wedding day, but fortunately the ... READ MORE

Matt and Mattie had a stunning wedding day that Mattie declared was, "Perfect in every way." Admittedly, the day did not start out perfectly, but these guys brushed off the unfortunate early morning stress with such grace that it made their parents proud. It was a beautiful thing to see and experience. Matt and Mattie are a stand-up couple, and behind these two are stand-up parents that love their kids deeply. It has been such a privilege getting to know these families and their hearts. It truly made the day a privilege for us to be a part of. We photographed Mattie's sister's wedding last April, so it was a nice reunion of sorts. The day sta ... READ MORE
