I’m so glad I could capture Melissa and Dan’s wedding day. These two were originally supposed to get married in April, but of course, had to postpone. They had to change so many plans, but were finally able to have the wedding day of their dreams.

Dakota and Maria tied the knot at the Grand River Center in Dubuque. This venue was the perfect location for their celebration because it’s right on the Riverwalk where they spent a lot of time together when they first started dating.

Jaclyn and Chris had a small destination wedding in St. Augustine Florida. The colors that Jaclyn chose were perfect for a beach wedding. The bridesmaids wore dusty blue, and flowers and other decorations included light pink and orange for a tropical vibe.
