Jon + Alyssa {Wedding: Part 1}

July 13, 2018  •  Leave a Comment


Jon and Alyssa's June wedding was absolutely stunning and a joy to photograph. The ladies began their day with hair and makeup at Kate & Co. salon in Cedar Falls before heading to the Courtyard by Marriott to finish getting ready.  I love the beautiful blush tone of the bridesmaids' gowns.  Alyssa had hangars custom made for herself and her bridesmaids, a beautiful personal touch.

Before they donned their beautiful gowns, the ladies got a few shots in their matching robes.  How fun! 061618-032061618-032 waterloo-marriottwaterloo-marriott authentic-wedding-photographerauthentic-wedding-photographer iowa-weddingiowa-wedding

Alyssa did a reveal with her bridesmaids once she was in her dress and the smiles on their faces tell it all.  This wedding was absolutely filled with joy.  So much fun! iowa-wedding-photographeriowa-wedding-photographer father-daughter-first-lookfather-daughter-first-look

Before heading to her first look with Jon, Alyssa had a first look with her father.  It was a beautiful moment!  I love father-daughter first looks! midwest-wedding-photographermidwest-wedding-photographer 061618-103061618-103 Jon and his groomsmen got ready at St. Edward's Catholic Church.  I love his tux!  Such a clean, classic look!

Jon and Alyssa had their first look in front of the clubhouse.  The pure joy on Alyssa's face is absolutely gorgeous!  I think first looks are so beautiful.  To have that moment, just the two of you (and photographers to capture the happiness) before the busy day really begins; a moment to hug each other, talk, laugh, and sometimes even cry.  Beautiful! 061618-227061618-227 061618-228061618-228 061618-230061618-230 061618-234061618-234 061618-243061618-243 061618-248061618-248 061618-278061618-278 061618-309061618-309 061618-310061618-310 061618-311061618-311 061618-330061618-330 061618-335061618-335 061618-342061618-342 061618-350061618-350
