suzi & kyle » married

Suzi & Kyle had such a beautiful day for their wedding. It was a cool November day, but we certainly could have had much worse temps! Along with a November wedding they had those gorgeous fall colors that brought warmth to every room. We met at St. Olaf Lutheran Church here in Fort Dodge (they came all the way from Omaha!) and I spent the day with them from the first tightening of the gown, to their sundae bar reception.

Suzi’s accessories screamed of sentimentality in the most wonderful ways. Her bouquet incorporated pieces of lace and fabric from the wedding dresses of her grandmother and great-grandmother — a familial touch Sadie (my second) and I wished we could replicate! She even brought in “something borrowed, something blue” with a ring — another piece of family joining her through the day.  Without further ado, check out some sweet frames from Suzi & Kyle’s big day:blog4 blog1 blog6 blog9 blog7 blog8 blog3 blog5 blog11 blog10 blog2 blog12 blog13 blog14 blog16 blog15fort dodge iowa wedding november first dance with son

lexi+eddie » spring wedding in Pella, Iowa

We could not have asked for a more gorgeous day for Lexi and Eddie’s wedding last weekend! Kelby and I trekked down to Pella, neither of us having been to the Central College campus before, but so excited to meet the bride and groom and all their family. It became clear almost immediately that these two had that special something between them; their love is so sweet!  The day got even better as we ate some snacks between photos and the ceremony, and there was mention that the bride and groom would enter the wedding reception to the Star Wars theme song. I could. not. stop. smiling. Oh, did I forget to mention they had a Chewbacca cake? Yeah. That happened. These two were so sweet, their families were fun-loving and wonderful, the weather was beautiful, and the whole day just left me full of love for what I do. Anyway, enough blabbering from me: on with some frames from their gorgeous day!
