I had been looking forward to Amanda & Tyler’s wedding ever since their engagement session. Just to paint a picture for those who do not know them, they are hilarious and you are going to laugh and their witty banter and remarks and of course, all the faces Tyler will make. As a wedding photographer, being able to see their personalities before the wedding is really helpful. Their wedding day was full of laughter and emotion, the day as a whole was simply perfect.
Amanda and her daughter Ellie shared a special moment together as Ellie helped her mom get ready and put on her earrings. Amanda’s son John was also so sweet, you could tell he was so excited for his mother. The venue Whitetail Country Estates was such a beautiful Iowa wedding venue to photograph. The couple chose to stay traditional and saved their first looks for the isle.
There were a few happy tears from both Amanda & Tyler, and I think the spread across to their guests, it was hard to not have your heart melt as if you were watching on of those hallmark movies with the perfect endings, this was it guys!
Shortly after we did some family photos and then wondered off to take some bridal portraits. (This is one of my favorite parts of the wedding day!) Earlier I saw this perfect little spot and the Estate owner told me it was called Turtle Creek, and there indeed were turtles!
The lovely couple finished out the night with food, family,friends and music. From the beautiful door, to the sweet details Amanda had planned this reception was so rustic and screamed Tyler and Amanda. This was truly a perfect example of an elegant country Iowa wedding, and made my Iowa wedding photographer heart very happy!
Here are some of my favorites photos of the day, I hope you love them as much as I do! To Amanda and Tyler, thank you so much for trusting me with documenting your wedding day. You were both so wonderful, and I wish you the happiest marriage! <3
