Betsy and Shane had a small and simple wedding ceremony. I loved their winter color scheme and getting to capture some pictures in the snow!

Salazar Wedding

Weddings

Even though it had been cold all week, Max and Jacy had a beautiful sunny day for their wedding. They had their ceremony at New Era Lutheran Church in Muscatine. I love how their burgundy color scheme matched the interior of the church. Their color scheme was accented with pale pink, navy, and lots of greenery.

I loved getting to be a part of Haley and Curtis’s wedding day! It rained most of the day, but we had a couple dry hours in between the ceremony and reception for pictures. The Figge Art Museum provided a beautiful modern location for the bridal party and bride and groom portraits.

Rachel and Cristian tied the knot at the Terry Trueblood Park Lodge in Iowa City. Cristian is a fisherman so they liked that they could be married on the deck facing the lake. The venue was also surrounded by trees and paths, perfect for pictures.

Brianna and Ben tied the knot at St. Ann’s Catholic Church. Some of my favorite pictures from the day are the shots of the bridal party just hanging out and having fun before the reception. I also loved the wedding design that featured wildflowers and different shades of pink and purple.

Woods Wedding

After spending just a short time with Courtney and Timon, it’s clear to me why they are so beloved by their family and friends. They are both incredibly smart and talented, yet humble and kind. Their love for each other and for God is obvious to everyone around them. It was a joy to capture their wedding day!
