Emily & Nick

Emily and Nick's wedding day was absolutely beautiful in every way. Despite nasty weather predictions the rain held off and created an eerily charming light that set the backdrop for their story to unfold. The wedding was held in Okaboji, IA with reception in the yard at the enamoring Wild Rose Inn (where we photographed getting ready and portraits). Emily did an amazing job branding everything with her signature pink and grey colors. When you walked into their reception tent it was like entering a grand ballroom with grass carpet - the ambiance was enchanting. Right after the ceremony we took the wedding party to the infamous Arnold's Park and had some fun before heading to the reception. Emily and Nick were adventurous enough to ride the rollercoaster with us, which proved to be a very difficult photo op (very fast and rickety) but we got the shot! Our favorite part of the day was the chemistry that sparked between the couple when we had them alone for portraits - lots of laughter and genuine affection. Here are a few of our favorites from the day:
