Carly + Dalton’s rustic barn wedding is bursting with personal touches. Each added detail made the day even more special for everyone in attendance and they incorporated a unique way to include those that were there in spirit.
From the Photographer: I remember sitting down with Carly and how easy she was to talk with. I instantly knew her wedding was going to be amazing just from how genuinely sweet she was! Sure enough, its been one of my favorite weddings and I couldn’t feel more honored to have been able to capture such an amazing couples day!
This Summer wedding was nothing short of simple charm, clean colors and lots of personal touches. The venue at Debbie’s Celebration Barn set the tone with a cute rustic barn, and hand made bouquets gave it that romantic rustic flare! The ceremony was beautiful and so unique! Instead of the bridesmaids just walking down with bouquets, they also each carried a photo of a late family member. I had never seen this before and it was a great way to incorporate those who were there in spirit.
From the cake, to the toasts and the first dances, the reception was bursting with love and emotion. It always gives me the fuzzy feels during these events but the huge sense of joy and togetherness just made this wedding even grander!
Oh, they also had a candy bar. Brides, you should do this!!
If I could photograph a couple over and over it would be Carly and Dalton! They are the kindest people and I have stayed in touch with them and we have even gotten together for a game night! Iowa weddings are awesome, and full of beginnings! I’m so glad I was able to play a part in theirs.Capture Life Portraits
