Who knew a day could be so fun, so warm, so joyful, and so stunning! Seriously! Eric and Taylor’s wedding on Saturday took place at the new and beautiful Walker Homestead close to Iowa City. The all-white interior with big windows allowed for some stunning portraits with amazing light – I was so grateful for that! They had an outdoor ceremony under an arbor overlooking beautiful farm land – it was breathtaking and so romantic (and hot!)! I love coming away from a wedding day feeling like I’ve made two new friends – Eric and Taylor is one of those couples. They love each other so much, and it’s easy to notice it. The way Eric’s face lights up when he sees Taylor smile says it all! One thing I appreciate so much about this couple is their attention to detail. I could easily see that every single little thing had lots of thought and effort put into it. They wrote letters to each other, but instead of reading them separately before they saw each other, they read them to each other at their first look. It was such a precious moment for them. They rolled their letters up as a scroll and tied them with ribbon, and somehow it made them seem even more special. Taylor also wrote letters to each of her parents, which adds to the sweetness of the day! It was things like that that constantly reminded them, their family, their friends, and ME what their wedding day was all about. Their love is so strong, and I was so blessed to be a part of it!
Taylor’s mom, Jeannie, made her necklace from old jewelry…
This heart was sewn into her dress from her dad’s old work shirt…so sweet!
Taylor you’re breathtaking!!!
Father/daughter first looks make me cry too!
See how happy he is to see her?!?
Shelly Sarver went above and beyond with all the beautiful florals – everything was perfectly crafted and Taylor loved the way they turned out!
Sweetest mother/daughter duo I ever did see…
Now for golden hour portraits…one of my favorite parts of the day!
An amazing team of vendors worked together to pull this off, and it turned out amazing! Thank you!
