A quick disclaimer for this post: Elin made the dress she's wearing (because she's awesome)!
We've had the pleasure of knowing Heather and Kyle for pretty much their entire relationship. Heather was Alex's roommate through college and we remember hearing all about Kyle right after she met him. Our history with the couple made photographing them a very personal and exciting task. To make things more exciting, Heather asked Alex to be in the wedding (see: the hot bridesmaid at bottom left of the last image. Alex is gonna kill me when she reads that). Heather and Kyle's ceremony was a photographers dream: a lakeside ceremony at sunset underneath the giant tree at The Inn in Okaboji, IA. The setting was cinematic with the steady breeze from the lakefront, the intimate sound of the tide against the shore and the glow of the cascading sun painting the scene with warmth. The wedding party was a fun-loving bunch that kept the party rolling all day. Heather's favorite thing in the world (after Kyle, of course) is ice cream! Kyle is lactose intolerant, so we of course had to stop for some ice cream at the famous Nutty Bar Stand in Arnold's Park during couple portraits. Kyle was a good sport about it (see below).
We love you both and wish the best to you in your married life!
