As I go through the images from my last three weddings of 2016, I can't help but think we had some amazing weather this year! Ethan and Leah's day was full of bright, cloudy skies with vibrant fall colors and perfect temperatures - they really couldn't have asked for a better day.
Beginning our day at Nazareth Lutheran Church in Cedar Falls, Ethan and Leah shared their first look in the sanctuary in front of the picture perfect 'window wall'. The beautiful, filtered light spilling into that sanctuary was every photographer's dream. ;)
The ceremony started with tears and ended in laughter.
Evening photos involved involved even more laughter and a lot of leaves.
Reception was full of old memories, and new memories and talk of their future. I feel like I say it for every wedding, but I really am being 100% genuine when I express how beautiful the day was. Each wedding is different and they all have their own sparks and elements that make them beautifully unique to each couple. I think that's why I'm drawn to wedding photography so much. There's just so much emotion - it's hard not to fall in love with them. <3
