Rachel & Matt's Classic Fairytale Wedding at Gatherings by Farmhouse Catering in Nevada, Iowa

Rachel and Matt became clients of mine by a twist of fate. The Wednesday before their wedding, I was contacted about possibly photographing their big day, because their original photographer could not make it. Normally, my process is much different - I meet in person (when possible), but time was of the essence. So we chatted on the phone for quite awhile, so that I could get all the details to be fully prepared and to get a feel for who they are and their personalities. I just knew when the phone call ended, that we were a perfect fit.

All of the celebrations took place at Gatherings by Farmhouse Catering in Neveda, Iowa and the boathouse was an ideal place for the girls to get ready - with lots of room and antique furniture perfectly fitting the vision for their style, with navy blue, and pink colors.

On the wedding day, I reassured them I would take care of everything and we would have a great time. It was amazing, in that it felt like we were instant friends and all events of the day went so smoothly and was just fantastic! I cannot wait to watch their love and family grow for years to come.
