Hannah, the college dance team alum, and Mark, the college basketball coach, were an absolute dream to work with! Not to mention, we had the perfect weather for this September wedding! It all came together in the best way and I’m so excited to share it on the blog today!
Let me just start by saying that I LOVE pretty details! It is so fun to see a bride’s (and groom’s) personal style shine through on their wedding day!
Then throw in some heartfelt, personal touches and I am all in!
Hannah made for a beautiful bride, and everyone there was clearly smitten!
And can we just take a moment to stop and take in this magnificent church?
We had a blast hanging out with the wedding party all day! And I even got to reconnect with one of my past brides, Tora, who was now the matron of honor for Hannah! Hannah and Tora met on the dance team at Iowa State–so we of course had a lot in common with our shared love for dance!
Hannah and Mark’s families were wonderful. It was so fun to see how much love there was for the happy couple!
The ceremony at Mount Olivet Lutheran Church was a heartfelt show of love and commitment between Mark and Hannah. And the high ceilings and intricate details of the architecture were so fun to work with!
The reception featured 6 MOH/Best Man speeches and every single one demonstrated just how great Mark and Hannah are. The venue was decorated beautifully and the whole vibe was great. Guests came from all over the country to celebrate the happy couple!
And then Hannah and her dad pulled off this super fun dance where the rest of the family eventually joined in on the performance. It kicked off a full night of dancing and celebrating. And her parents were definitely the life of the party out on the dance floor all night long!
Congratulations Hannah and Mark! May you have many, many more moments like this one together! You two are fantastic!
