When I photograph weddings in the Midwest they frequently happen during summer and fall months, but when Katie and Jake planned their day, they picked the middle of winter and what happened to be the day after one of the biggest blizzards of the year! And every part of their day was extra special because of it! Beautiful fresh snow lined the streets and made for a magical winter setting. Their ceremony was held at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Sioux City, Iowa. There we found an quaint and timeless alley with a rustic old building covered in fresh snow. We used that area, as well as the beautiful interior of the church for their wedding pictures before the ceremony. After the ceremony the bride and groom along with all of their guests headed to Stoney Creek Hotel for an evening reception filled with tons of dancing and food provided by local favorite Sneaky's Chicken (if you haven't tried it, it is everything yummy!). Next door to the hotel was one other great photo opportunity that we couldn't pass up, the Sioux City Art Center (also a great wedding venue!). It made a nice backdrop for a quick shot of the couple dancing! The evening was beautiful and I could just tell by the packed dance floor that the bride and groom's guests all had an amazing evening too! Everything about Katie and Jake's day was Iowa wedding perfection!!!
