It was a joy to be invited to witness Renee + John’s beautiful day at Little Lights on the Lane in West Branch, Iowa. Some would say, “the stars aligned” for these two and astronomy has becoming they both enjoy together. These two perfectly incorporated stars, moons, and telescopes to their day to make it uniquely them, their “us.”
Allison + Will were married on a rainy Saturday in September. But with the beautiful natural light at their venue Toast gave us endless options for photos. A dream venue with an amazing vendor team to make Allison + Will’s wedding day dreams come true. Cheers to the Lounsbury’s!

Now, a handful of years later we celebrated at The Conrad Mansion with all their friends + family. A yummy ice cream bar, an ISU victory, and a big mansion to stay in for two nights with all their friends, now that’s my kind of party!!! Congratulations to the Warren’s!
On their wedding day Mark + Meredith shared intimate vows, puppy snuggles, sparklers, a small outdoor wedding on their family’s Iowa farmland, and a big party with their friends afterwards to celebrate the beginning of their marriage! The best kind of wedding day with two of the easiest people to love + celebrate!

Tony + Tori made vows to the each in front of the family, friends and God at Debbie’s Celebration Barn at the beginning of July. A beautiful day to witness!
