Hey There


Sarah + Zach’s Vibrant Iowa Wedding at Black Hawk Historic Site

Sarah and Zach has one of the best intimate weddings I have ever been too! Last Fall, their ideas of having their wedding surrounded by greenery was re imagined due to the weather, but the end result in my opinion couldn’t have been more perfect!

They decided to forgo a wedding party and focused on getting ready and sharing a first look with each other. We were then able to go find a non muddy spot among the trees to get some really beautiful photos! Some of my favorite to date! Then they had an amazing ceremony in front of the most beautiful brick building with an awesome door! It was stunning, and I will travel to Black Hawk Historic Site again and again just for that!

If thats not enough to make you wanna get married, they also had food trucks for their dinner! I had the best damn 5 cheese Macaroni with a piece of garlic bread in my life. It was carb heaven. So future brides, get a food truck! They also had fun lawn games like Giant jenga and corn hole! This wedding was absolutely so much fun, and I love coming back to look at these photos again and again. <3
