This weekend’s wedding was at the beautiful Red Barn at Pine Creek Ranch in Marengo, IA, and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite venues! We celebrated Cody + Kattie‘s marriage, and I could quickly see why they chose this venue! The cabin where Kattie got ready in overlooks the big pond where they had their ceremony, while the reception was across the road with even more beautiful landscape! For an August wedding, we were all majorly blessed (and SO thankful!) to have the most glorious weather – the days leading up to Saturday were hot and humid, like most summer days in Iowa, but not Saturday! It was perfect.
Each and every moment the entire day was so sweet, relaxing, and fun…Kattie shared a first look with her dad, and WOW! They have such a tight bond, and their father/daughter dance together was beyond special too. Cody and Kattie were simply grateful to be together, to get married, and to have a fun day, especially with how many of their guests were still able to come despite recent events. They were SO happy, and you could see it all in their portraits!
