A beautiful wedding

Caroline and Aaron’s wedding was stunningly beautiful.  I knew from the beginning that it was going to be amazing though.  For their engagement session last year we went out to her parent’s place (the same place where her reception was held)  We spent forever on her parent’s horse farm and every shot was stunning (I have a bunch hanging in my studio).  Her wedding certainly lived up to my expectations – in fact I entered it into the Professional Photographers of Iowa Portfolio competition and it placed 1st!  Here are a few of the awesome portraits from that day.



Caroline’s beautiful dress was from Schaffer’s in Des Moines




Caroline got ready at hotel Vetro in Iowa City.  I love how elegant and classic it looks inside!

Cakes by Adam of Tip Top Cakes (he’s so fun to hang out with and he creates some amazing cakes)





gotta love the cool drink containers!





Caroline’s mother put on some comfy shoes and some guest were barefoot, love being casual






Caroline and Aaron love to cook and entertain – you can certainly tell by the awesome menue and place settings!
wine was from The Bread and Garden Market in Iowa City

 

A dinner too good to imagine was catered by Blackstone



since Caroline and Aaron love to cook they gave all their guest measuring spoons in the shape of hearts





Their last shot of the night in front of their barn – awesome
