Casa Ybel Resort Wedding - Sanibel Photographer

Laura and Brian could not have asked for a better day. Perfect Florida weather, an amazing clear beach day and the backdrop of Casa Ybel on Sanibel Island were all part of this wonderful afternoon.

They were married on the beach with the sand between their toes and danced the night away under a beautifully decorated tent reception. Casa Ybel has several wonderful options for receptions. I really love the tent that they offer. It has a unique ambiance that no other island venue offers. It's situated just steps from the beach and just outside of the Thistle Lodge (the resorts award winning restaurant). Laura and Brian opt for their gorgeous lined tent that gives the space a very soft feel. That along with some cafe lights set the mood and created an elegant wedding atmosphere. The tent sits on a beautifully manicured lawn with all natural landscape, including some of my favorite, the old Florida palms that Sanibel Island is known for. Brian and Laura's wedding day and tent reception went off perfectly. I loved watching this destination wedding come together and being there to capture their day was definitely a pleasure!

A little something amazing that happened in Naples, Florida recently! Kelly and Kirby were married in a beautiful destination wedding ceremony. The couples friends and families all came in to celebrate their wedding with them in style! A few iconic pictures stops around Naples and a party that everyone will be talking about for years to come were just a few highlights of the day. I'll definitely share a second post with more from their super memorable wedding reception (complete with a great band, lush flowers and an over the top garden feel!).

I pretty much can't get enough of this wedding. Dan and Cassandra were just the most fun and so completely in love that capturing that was a treat. Add in a historical castle in the middle of Iowa.... perfection. It really was a treat to photograph at the Salisbury House in Des Moines. The location is the setting of a fairy tale. Beautiful architecture and a rich history make the Salisbury House perfect for hosting any special event or wedding. And this beautiful outdoor wedding took advantage of every part of that! Loved every moment of Cassandra and Dan's wedding day! They really did have the best wedding day imaginable and I was so fortunate to be with them in Des Moines as their wedding photographer!

Okoboji Sunset Wedding

Sunset over the water is about as beautiful as it comes. And Lake Okoboji boasts some extraordinary sunsets. And some extraordinary weddings! We were so excited for the late day rain showers to pass and the sun to peak out so we could take the bride and groom out on the dock for this amazing sunset. Their wedding was held on the lake as their guests looked out on to Lake Okoboji for their wedding ceremony. We've had the pleasure of photographing several summer weddings on the lake. From the beautiful waterfront dining room at Bridges Bay Resort, to the quiant Inn at Okoboji there are so many picturesque wedding venues to choose from.

Sioux Center, Iowa Wedding

Could Justin and Ashley be any cuter!? I absolutely loved being a part of this adorable couples wedding in Sioux Center! A stop in Le Mars for some bridal portraits was also part of their day. These were taken at a park where the wind caught Ashley's veil perfectly!! This was my last Iowa wedding of 2016 before I returned to Florida to start wedding season in the sun! So happy to have been there to capture Ashley and Justin's big day and to have finished 2016 in Iowa with such an incredible wedding!

Sioux City Engagement Photography

One last shoot in the Midwest before I returned to Florida and this one was pure perfection. Emilee and Wade came from Omaha to Emilee's hometown of Sioux City, Iowa to do their engagement pictures. Truly the most adorable couple, they were a ton of fun to photograph. We took full advantage of Sioux City with pictures on the Missouri River and at Stone Park. We were able to capture the beautiful late day light in the park and ended with an amazing sunset over the river. Their wedding day is just around the corner, the couple will return again to South Sioux City for a spring wedding at The Marina Inn and Conference Center. We are definitely looking forward to being a part of Emilee and Wade's big day!
