The trees were in bloom and the weather was perfect for this beautiful Iowa spring wedding. Lindsey (the bride) looks absolutely breathtaking in a stunning Hayley Paige wedding gown. We love the windows that filled the reception venue with lots of natural light!
Spring is much awaited after Iowa’s long winters and these two lovebirds couldn’t have picked a better weekend. It was an emotional day as her only and younger brother walked down the aisle; the memory of her dad walked with her, too, as a photo in a vintage gold locket. Her dad had passed away only a few years prior to this day and as she walked down the aisle past me, you can see her eyes looking right at her emotional mom. Tears flowed again as her brother had to give the speech her dad should have given, but was quickly turned into laughing as they remembered him. Beautiful details made the bride’s vision come to life complete with her gorgeous gown, beautiful array of fresh flowers, the best navy polka dotted skinny tie, and a handmade bench by the groom for a photo prop. This combination of classic vintage (with her sparkly beaded veil – and later, hairpiece – that perfectly tied into her gorgeous flowing Hayley Paige gown) and the groom’s need for his own “pop” of cool & comfort – the ever subtle Converse shoes – made it an eclectic blend of the best styles! The venue completed the bride’s artistic style with entire walls as a blank canvas chalkboard. The happy couple danced the night away with the doors wide open and under Edison lights. – Laura Wills
