Happy First Wedding Anniversary Mr & Mrs Fenton

I have such a love for elopements that I never knew I had before! Over the last couple of years I’ve had the pleasure of joining couples with their closest family members and friends in an intimate, private ceremony, to capture the moments of them committing to a life together. What could be more special than that?!

The Fenton’s tied the knot a year ago in the comfort of their own home here in Clinton, Iowa. I am so excited to wish them a very happy anniversary, and many more ahead! Here are just a few of my favorite shots from their special day.

Carlee and Luke are Celebrating One Year!

It is so hard to believe this fun and beautiful wedding was a year ago already! I met Carlee a couple of years ago, when Luke was still her boyfriend. She actually shadowed me on a some jobs to learn more about the photography business. I remember her talking about hoping her boyfriend would propose…and then shortly after, he popped the question!

Carlee and Luke are one of the sweetest and most fun couples you will meet. Don’t be fooled by her quietness…she’s a riot! They try not to take life too seriously and truly enjoy each others’ company, being silly together and living life to the fullest. From following along on their lives through through social media, I know they have been tested over this last year. Moving to another state, home ownership, job changes, none of it comes easy. But through the tough stuff they know they can always lean on each other.

Cheers to a year and many more! I hope you’ve had a wonderful anniversary Mr and Mrs Ernst!

Here’s a look back on one of the happiest days of your lives!

Torrie and Carson tied the knot and danced the night away

What a great love story Torrie and Carson will have to tell future generations. Boy meets girl. They fall in love. Boy is a military man. Girl is attending college. They beat the odds and make long distance work. There’s a proposal. Wedding planning happens while being thousands of miles apart. But then they come together surrounded by the most important people in their lives and they commit to marriage, a lifetime together. The great thing is that if they can beat the challenges that come with a very long distance relationship, they can handle anything life throws at them.

You know just by the way Carson looks at Torrie that he would do anything for her. And Torrie is such a strong and beautiful woman who is head over heals in love with her man. I loved this wedding day! Because it was a true, giddy, butterflies in the stomach, pure kind of love. This day was about more than just the wedding itself, but about the whole marriage going forward. And those are the best kinds of wedding days. I couldn’t be more happy for Mr and Mrs Williams!
