To sum up this wedding in one word, I would definitely use “joyful!” There were so many smiling faces and all around happiness as Becky and Jake spoke their vows. The wedding party was so amazing to work with, funny, kind and definitely the life of the party! It’s easy to see why they were chosen to stand up with the bride and groom during their wedding ceremony. Also, a huge shoutout to grandma Barb for helping so much with the little ring bearer so mommy and daddy could focus on their big day while still soaking in the spontaneous hugs from Joey as he made his rounds. All of the guests had a great time and I was so impressed with the venue! I haven’t been to the Vista Grande in a few years and it seems they've made updates to the building. It was perfect for their reception!
Some of the other vendors that deserve major props are Melissa Johnston for the beautiful hair and makeup, David’s Bridal and Men’s Wearhouse for the perfectly coordinated wedding attire, Corner Deli Catering from Clinton, Iowa for the delicious meal and Sweetheart Bakery (also Clinton) for the tasty wedding cake!
From where I was standing, everything came together wonderfully, despite the rain! It didn’t get in the way of the joy of the day even a little bit. We still did outdoor portraits and umbrellas are adorable in photos anyway! I hope Mr and Mrs Rogge agree (I’m sure they do) and had the most amazing wedding day!
