Carissa & Matt’s Wedding

We had a beautiful day for Carissa & Matt’s wedding!  It started off a little crazy with a huge  farmer’s market right outside the church doors when we arrived to set up. Luckily the farmers market disappeared in time to start taking some portraits.

We headed outside for some beautiful portraits at the park across the street. We were able to capture some awesome portraits with their church in the background.

After the wedding Carissa’s wedding all the guests released balloons and Carissa and Matt walked across the street and released pigeons.

Loved the flowers next to the detail of the stain glass windows.  flowers by Race Horse Royalty

Once we were finished with the releases Carissa and Matt jumped in the limo with their wedding party and headed off. We were able to capture some great portraits with the whole wedding party using a country road we found.

When it was time for the reception we headed to the beautiful Cedar Rapids Marriott where Unique Events MC’d the reception.
