Lucy & Nathan’s big day wins the award for rainiest wedding we’ve ever shot in the past 8 years! It literally rained the entire Saturday, which they say is good luck…but not always so much for photos, ha! They still made the best of it and braved the rain THREE times with us for quick portraits throughout the day. You’d never even know it was raining from all the smiles and laughter! They even ventured out into the darkness and rain for some sweet night photos.
We love shooting weddings at TCI (The Tournament Club of Iowa Golf Course) what a beautiful golf course with wonderful staff. We’ve never had to accommodate the guests inside for the ceremony before at TCI but they made the best of the rain situation and it turned out perfectly. Especially with all the elaborate floral arrangements and a string quartet playing softly, it sounded and looked absolutely stunning indoors!
I was in awe of the beautiful floral arrangements by LKB all day and we loved working with all the amazing vendors for their big day, some of our favorites listed below. Also note to all brides…hang lots of string lights. They make wonderful backgrounds for dance photos!
Thanks so much for choosing us to photograph your big day and for braving the rain so many times with us for portraits! Despite the rain I think we captured some priceless moments full of love and laughter, a little rain can’t get you down!
Congratulations you two and enjoy the images!
