Michael + Calista

Michael & Calista 

In the middle of an Iowa wheat field on thee sunniest of July days, these two said a very thankful yes to forever & invited each person there to share in their joy. JOY. Joy is the word that comes to mind when I think of this day. I'm thankful to start sharing about our adventures of shooting weddings with this couple. 

Michael and Calista's story is full of joy & that was truly told throughout their wedding day. Their deep joy & love for one another and those around them is so evident. It was clear in each moment of their beautiful day. 

Every single detail of this day had a purpose & a meaning. It seemed that every thing that played a role in their wedding day was either a family heirloom, a special part of their daily life, or borrowed from a special family member. From the family land where they said "I do," to the beautiful tribute to her grandparents by a dance in her own grandmother's wedding gown, we saw bits & pieces of who they are and those who have impacted them all throughout that day. 

We were oh so grateful to have the opportunity to not only capture their wedding photos, but film their day as well (video below). This was a first for us & we couldn't have been more excited about the day we were able to witness! 

Hooray for Michael & Calista!  Here's to you two beautiful people & gift you two are!
