River Center Davenport Wedding

November 3, 2020

Shelby and Koby’s day was so fun! As with every wedding this year, they had some changes to their plan, which ended up being a lot of changes. Their original venue plan: completely overhauled. They had to switch venues very last-minute, but it worked out so well for them! Their River Center Davenport wedding was absolutely beautiful!

When I last photographed Shelby and Koby for their engagement session, we were cozy in the fields at their farm. In contrast, their wedding day was in the windy, bustling downtown Davenport. It’s a good thing Shelby opted for Kate Spade Keds instead of heels because we took to walking the streets to find the perfect portrait spot! It was fun shooting in downtown Davenport in spots that I don’t normally get to shoot! I always enjoy the experience of something new!

I absolutely love Shelby‘s dress! I’ve never seen anything like it. Shelby wanted a very classic dress with something special about it that wasn’t lace. The sparkle on this Lazaro dress from Bella Bianca was just what she was looking for! I think it’s absolute perfect — Shelby looks like a real-life princess! Koby couldn’t keep his eyes off her the whole day!

There was so much emotion during their ceremony. Shelby definitely didn’t want to cry all day, but she shed a few tears during their ceremony, which was so sweet! I’ve been following Shelby and her little poultry farm on Instagram for quite a while now! I feel like I know her even better because of that! It’s fun to see so many of their friends and family together celebrating their marriage!

Shelby and Koby, thank you so much! I know it was windy and things you planned for months had to change, but you guys were amazing! You didn’t let all the the changes, that could have derailed everything, affect you. Your day was beautiful! It’s like it was meant to be this way the whole time time! 🙂
