Sarah and Lyle's wedding day unfolded against the beautiful backdrop of Ocean Edge Resort in Cape Cod, MA. The occasion was intimate with approximately 50 close friends and family members enjoying an extended weekend together at the resort. The girls got ready at the Ocean Edge Mansion, and we photographed most of our portraits on the mansion grounds. Sarah was adventurous and did some tree climbing (see below) in the name of photographic awesomeness! We hit the golf course with the groomsmen, who's grey suits and cigars were a perfect combination of classy and fun. In the late afternoon everybody walked down to the beach for a barefoot beach ceremony. Sarah's youngest sister was one of the cutest flower girls we've ever met and performed her duties with excellence. The reception was held afterwards at the Linx Pavilion. After a healthy amount of dancing we noticed a heavy fog setting in outside so we ventured onto the golf course for an epic goodnight portrait to end the day. We couldn't imagine the day going any more perfectly and we're glad we got to be a part of it! Congrats Sarah and Lyle!
Anastasia & Dustin had a beautiful outdoor ceremony on the terrace of the Jester Park Lodge in Granger, IA, with a lunch reception immediately following inside the lodge. Because Anastasia is a graduate assistant in the photography program at Iowa State, her officiant delivered a very cool message full of metaphors between marriage and photography. The whole event from the flower arrangements to the programs was elegantly branded with brown, autumn orange and green - all with a vintage touch. The vibe of the whole day was very laid back and the wedding party was exceptionally rad to hang out with. At the end of the day it was particularly fun to hang out with with Dustin and his groomsmen as they smoked celebratory cigars out on the expansive lawn overlooking Saylorville Lake. Congratulations Anastasia & Dustin, we wish you the best together!
