Heidi and Neal's pastor summed it up perfectly when he said "the wetter the rope, the tighter the knot" during their wedding ceremony at Swedesburg Evangelical Lutheran Church in Swedesburg, IA. Their day rained without ceasing from dawn till dusk, but nobody let it ruin the fun. Special thanks to Heidi, Neal and the entire wedding party for braving the drizzle and letting us take photos outdoors – it was a blast! To add sentiment to the occasion, Swedesburg Lutheran is the church Heidi grew up in and the church where both her sisters and her parents were married! Pink isn't a color many guys can pull off, but the Neal and his dudes made pink bow ties look downright debonair. The bridesmaids held their own with pink umbrellas that made playing in the rain look like more fun than a bucket of kittens. After the ceremony the wedding party rode a party bus into Mt. Pleasant for a reception at Iowa Wesleyan College Social Hall, making a stop for some group photos along the way. The selection of favorite images below convey the emotions of the day better than our words. Heidi and Neal were a fantastic couple to work with and we wish them many blessings in their marriage!
