You never quite know what to expect with Iowa weather in the late fall, but Matt and Anna had the most beautiful fall day for their wedding! Their wedding took place at Anna's parent's home in Cedar Rapids and was a beautiful intimate event, with close family and friends in attendance. Anna's dress was stunning! Disney princess worthy, for sure!! The beautiful beaded detail was the perfect touch of sparkle to the clean, classic lines of her gown. Before seeing Matt for their first look, Anna and her father shared a first look. I just love the moment when a father sees his little girl on her wedding day. Such a beautiful moment!! Matt and Anna's first look was filled with laughter and joy. You can tell just how much these two love birds adore each other!! The afternoon sunlight was so gorgeous through the tress at the front of their property. Such a beautiful location for portraits!! Anna had "witch tights" and not only did the pair so well with their colors, they were such a fun addition to he wedding day ensemble!! If you're going to get married on Halloween, you should absolutely have some fun with it!!! The ceremony was held on her parents' lawn with close family and friends in attendance. There was a lot of laughter and joy during their ceremony. The joy Matt and Anna felt just radiated from them all day! Their reception was lovely! Their cake was made by Anna's maid of honor, and it was beautiful! In preparation for her wedding, Anna purchased a fabulous teal cloak in case the weather was cold. Thankfully, the weather was gorgeous, but we wanted to be sure to get a few portraits with her gorgeous cloak! I think the twirling ones are some of my absolute favorites from their day! Before we left, Anna and her father, as well as Matt and his mother, shared a dance under the beautiful fall foliage. Congratulations, Matt and Anna!! Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your gorgeous wedding day! It was an absolute joy!!
