You met them in the midst of their gorgeous lakeside engagement session last week, and now, Travis & Sam are married! They chose not to see each other before the ceremony, which resulted in a morning of anticipation, butterflies and sweet moments. Travis and Sam are blessed with some really great friends and family. You can tell how much they love them and support their relationship. It was such a fun experience for me to photograph such a joyful and encouraging group of friends. So many elements of the day brought out their eclectic personalities from Sam’s beautiful and bountiful dress, to the record player filling the church lobby with their favorite music to the goldfish bowls at the reception. It was a day full of big smiles, hearty laughter, joyful tears and happiness.
Sam’s bridesmaids prayed over her marriage before she walked down the aisle to see Travis for the first time that day. It was a beautiful moment.
His face says it all…
Travis and Sam love the outdoors and the natural beauty that is God’s creation. However, because this is Iowa, the scenery was somewhat wintery and lacking. So we found an overflowing greenhouse to take their portraits in. It was a wonderful time of quiet romance with a few moments for them to spend as blushing newlyweds fresh off the altar. It was magical.
Travis and Sam- from my heart, I hope you enjoy the rest of your honeymoon in the tropics – be sure to relax and revel in your newlywed status! :)
