Goslinga Wedding

I met Brooke two years ago, working with Dan Phillips Photography at the Dance Academy. I remember secretly scheming up ways of introducing her to my brother (because I thought she would be a fun sister-in-law) before finding out she was engaged. ;) 

July 18, 2015. It was a beautiful day in Spencer, IA when Brook and Stu said "I do". Everything was very well planned (which is always appreciated ;) ) ...and I may or may not have fought back tears during the father-daughter dance...

Her sisters' speech was pretty much my favorite, though. Nice work, ladies! 

Elsbecker Wedding

Sarah and Josh were elementary school friends, now married and expecting their first little bundle of cuddles! I had such a blast working with them and getting to know them as a couple. They're probably two of the sweetest people you'll ever meet and their story truly is a real life fairy tale.  <3
