Hi there! Welcome to my blog, a place where I share my life, weddings, and my journey through building a life-giving business. Stay a while and say hello!

I AM SUMMER ALISABETH

Barn on the Ridge Burlington IA Wedding | Diana & Taurino

Weddings

July 26, 2017

I first met these two early last fall at Taurino’s brother’s wedding, and I couldn’t help but notice how sweet this “other” couple was that was in the bridal party! These two have been looking forward to this special day they could share together for a long time. They met several years ago when one of Diana’s friends brought her along to hang out with Taurino, hoping he wouldn’t get the wrong idea. In the end, he ended up falling for this new girl he met and it’s all history from there! Their day started out with beautiful, sunny skies, big smiles, and a beautiful couple. It ended up dumping down rain right before the outdoor ceremony, and even though we didn’t have the same sunny skies, we still had those smiles and the beautiful, happy couple. It cleared off just in time, and they shared their vows together in front of tons of family and friends!

It started sprinkling during the first look, so we made it just in time!

At this point it was dumping rain, and I’m so grateful for these beautiful porches!

Their little daughter, Sammy…what a sweetheart she was…

Love this one so much! Shows how very happy they are together!

Definitely loved this venue, and would love to shoot there again sometime!

I may have cried a little during their first dance…

Do you remember these two lovebirds? They’re beautiful wedding was last September and now they’re expecting a sweet little baby coming this fall!

And we were finally blessed with some beautiful golden light after clouds all day!

Diana & Taurino – You have become more than just my wedding clients to me, and instead more like friends! I had such a wonderful time spending the entire day with you, but that’s because you made it that way. Despite the rain and less than ideal circumstances, you remained positive and uplifting, and you remembered that you were getting MARRIED to your one true love no matter what. Thank you for making this day so special, and I’m so beyond excited for you two. Love you both!
