Sadie and John celebrated their mid-June wedding on their own property in Yarmouth, Iowa. I loved that their ceremony was literally in their backyard with the beauty of Iowan farmland as their backdrop. Sadie, a stylist, did her own hair and makeup and stunned in her bohemian style and vintage accessories. Highlights from the day included a symbolic tree planting during their ceremony, the bride’s grandfather officiating and gorgeous, overgrown florals everywhere and the hoot of a bridal party making the day full of laughs. The natural, unkempt and totally awesome reception decor reflected the couples love of the outdoors and John’s profession as a park ranger. Most of all, I can’t overstate enough how special it was for me to take most of the day’s photos where the couple would live and make their life together, from dressing Sadie in their living room to taking portraits on their beautiful front porch, the day just screamed Sadie and John and their love for each other. Congratulations, Mr. + Mrs. Mercer!
