Alana and Mike's wedding day started at her parents' acreage in New Vienna, IA. The location provided gorgeous outdoor scenes for portraits. This was further accentuated by Alana's choice of colors. The bridesmaids dresses, flowers and tan suits looked striking against the browning prairie grass and changing leaves. Alana's father Robert, AKA "The Stove Nut," has a fantastic museum filled with restored antique stoves, barber chairs and other things that provided a one–of–a–kind scene for some sweet shots. After photographing portraits we headed into town for the ceremony at the beautiful gothic Saint Boniface Catholic Church. The reception followed in Dyersville (home to the Field Of Dreams) at the Commercial Club Park Pavillion. Autumn centerpieces and a white light chandelier provided an elegant backdrop and even the drinks were jazzed up with personalized can koozies. Alana's dance with her father was a favorite moment at the reception. The photograph of it (below) is one of those images that you just feel. Big props to Alana for creating one of the most well–branded weddings we've ever seen! We're glad you chose graphic design as a profession ;)
A quick disclaimer for this post: Elin made the dress she's wearing (because she's awesome)!
