Crossroads Pavilion Sheldon IA Wedding | Tyler + Danielle


September 24, 2019

Tyler and Danielle are two sweethearts made for each other. They celebrated their marriage with family and friends at Crossroads Pavilion in Sheldon, Iowa, which is in the very northwest corner of the state! The long drive for me made for some early mornings and late nights, but I wouldn’t have missed this wedding for the world! These two have become good friends throughout the planning process and Danielle and I have a lot in common! She’s also a wedding photographer, and loves blush too! They decided to have a Friday wedding instead of a Saturday wedding, and it worked out so well!

The morning of, the ladies got their hair and makeup done at Crossroads, ate snacks, and enjoyed the morning. As soon as I walked in the door to the pavilion, I knew immediately where the ladies were; I could hear so much laughter coming from down the hall! The guys joined later just in time to get dressed for photos!

I love capturing memories from a wedding day through my camera and sharing them on here. But, there are always specific things that happen that I just wish so badly ya’ll could actually witness in real life. I wish you could hear all the laughter going on, excitement in their voices, and the music playing. In real life, I wish you could see her veil blowing in the wind, the leaves falling, and the smiles on their faces. Sometimes, I scroll back through my photos of the day and hope and pray I did their joyful celebration justice. That’s how I feel about Tyler and Danielle’s wedding – it was a glorious day, and I hope you can feel the joy through these photos.

All in all, I think this is a day they’ll never forget, and I definitely won’t either! Danielle has a sweet daughter, Aria, and watching them become a family of three was precious! She loves Tyler so much, and if the joining of two people can be any more special than it already is, it definitely was with three becoming a family instead. The day flew by so fast, lots of happy tears were shed, and I don’t have any other words besides to say that this couple is amazing!
