A few months back I met Karlie thanks to a wonderful site called Wish Upon a Wedding! Once a year I donate one Wedding Collection to their amazing cause and Karlie was the wonderful person who won, so so glad she did!
Although Karlie and Paul grew up in different cities, nearly half way across the country from one another, love found these two beautiful people and they couldn’t be any more perfect for one another! The weekend started off in Cedar Falls Iowa, with many travelers including the Groom’s family traveling in from New York City itself! As you can imagine the dynamic in the group was wonderful between Iowa and New York and Karlie and Paul had their set up for one memorable weekend! The wedding day arrived and Karlie looked stunning. Wearing a lovely dress that fit her personally from head to toe, she topped everything off with a few important pieces like her Mother’s own wedding veil and Paul’s Grandmother’s brooch! With soft colors and a tent wedding at the Rotary Reserve, their beautiful outdoor wedding brought many tears to family and friends’ eyes. And although the heat of the day was a little more than any of us had hoped for, by the end of the day Karlie and Paul were happily married!
Congratulations Karlie and Paul, it was such a pleasure visiting the beautiful state of Iowa and photographing your amazing day! I wish you years of happiness in your life and love back in New York!
