Amana Colonies Festhalle Barn Wedding

August 30, 2018

She slowly approached him. His back was turned. The moment was here. She reached out, her hand gently touching his shoulder. He twisted quickly. This was the moment he’d been waiting for. With a look of wonder, tears sparked his eyes. They embraced. After a breathtaking minute, he leaned back so he could really see her. She was beautiful. The tears kept on flowing. As they wiped the tears from each other’s eyes, you could tell. Their love was meant to be, all along.

Heartfelt moments filled Ti and Jenni’s wedding day, but none were so sweet as their first look moment. The raw emotion between these two was so special to witness. After first meeting over a decade ago, the day finally arrived when they would get to call each other husband and wife. The instant Ti turned around and saw Jenni as his bride, everything fell into place. All the time planning and waiting. It was all worth it to see her shining face.

And I’m the lucky photographer who got to capture all these moments for them! Ti and Jenni’s Festhalle Barn wedding in the Amana Colonies was absolutely tenderhearted. Emotions and humidity were high, but I’d sweat any day (all day) to celebrate with this sweet couple! When Ti, Jenni and I were last together for their engagement session, we also had high humidity! Come on, Iowa—haha! We just can’t seem to escape it when we’re together!  On their wedding day though, it didn’t bother them a bit. It was their day, and that’s all that mattered.

Ti and Jenni, thank you, thank you for letting me take part in your wedding day! Your kindness fills this little photographer’s heart with so much joy. It’s sweet brides and grooms like you that leave me with no doubt. I have the best job ever! I wish you a life-time of love and happiness together in marriage!
