Roxann + Brady | Natural Rock 'n Roll Wedding

May 14th, 2016 | Burlington, Iowa

Roxann and Brady got married on the most beautiful spring day imaginable and from beginning to end this day was all about them, their love and their terrific style. I first connected with Roxann through Instagram and from our first consult I could tell these two had put a lot of thought into the adventure of marriage and the big task of wedding planning and boy, did it pay off. The two have a great, alternative style and they definitely infused that into their day, choosing to have their intimate, family-only ceremony at freshly-bloomed Crapo Park followed up by their party at Catfish Bend Casino. And to make me even more misty-eyed, their wedding was on the same day as the bride's parents anniversary. All that laughing? It may have begun fake but ended in stitches. All that dramatic dress and hair flowy goodness? Authentic as they come. This couple was and is just so obviously in love and that always makes my heart sing. From beautiful floral arrangements from beginning to end, a makeup artist ditching so the bride could do her own amazing makeup, to 18 ft. tall live trees in their reception hall, this wedding was gasp worthy and unique from start to finish and it's my honor to share it with you.

 

If you notice as you look at these images that I seem to be a total magician and are thinking "How could she have possibly gotten that shot and that shot??", the answer is simply that I had a wonderful second shooter with me, an option I'm happy to offer in two of my packages!

XO,
