Emily, Tyler and their Beautiful Coral and Navy Wedding at Jasper Winery

Tyler and Emily are a wonderful and lovely couple.  I feel like I received so much more from them than I gave.  They exude kindness and encouragement. 
They are a couple that will always be in my book of special memories.  

Their flowers were in the coral family and wow, they really popped against the bridesmaids navy dresses.  

Emily loved coral peonies and was one of the lucky girls who got married while they were in season.  They are a show stopper flower for sure but in Emily's case she was the star of the show and the coral peonies took a happy second to her.  

Emily and her bridesmaids sharing a moment of fun.  The bridesmaids carried roses, carnations and spray roses in round hand tied bouquets. 
The brides bouquet had both ivory and coral roses, peach stock and coral peonies. 

First "SELFIE" as a man and wife.

Adam and Jenni

A beautiful summer day, a happy couple and the Iowa State Fair Grounds.  All the ingredients for some wonderful pictures and great memories. Adam and Jenni are big fans of the Iowa State Fair so what better place to take their wedding pictures.  
Jenni wanted an all white bouquet.  When we met she had shared with me her two favorite flowers were Peonies and Tulips.  Jenni grew up in Pella, IA and so her love of tulips was a natural.  Jenni's wedding was in June and for Iowa that is a little late for Peonies.  I had a few white Peonies growing in my garden.  I had heard of a trick that you could do to slow the process down for the peonies so I decided to try it to see if I could get Jenni just a few Peonies for her bouquet.  And it worked.  So when I delivered Jenni's bouquet to her I was able to surprise her with both of her favorite flowers.  

Jenni's dress. So light and soft. Perfect for a summer day.
Sweet Couple
