If there’s one key character trait that 2020 brides have had to embrace, it’s adaptability. Changing plans, being flexible, letting go of the idea of what a wedding “should” look like and instead focusing on what you can realistically achieve. In the days leading up to Samantha and Zach’s wedding, COVID-19 forced several changes in bridal party members, guests, and vendors. Vendor changes were made, even in the last 24 hours, and COVID tests were taken and the wedding itself moved ahead. And what a glorious day it was!
We all know that Iowa weather can be fickle. The Saturday before, it was in the 30s. Then we got hit with a warm spurt of 60s and 70s! As for their wedding day, Sam and Zach got a breezy, sunny, warm fall day in the 60s and the combination of sun and warmth made everyone so happy. You know what made me happy?: buckets of extra florals to use in the detail shots resulting in this image below that took over 10 minutes to put together, but was 100% worth the time. (When I was done with this shot, I was like, “Okay, so now…I just take it all apart?”)
Enjoy some of my favorite photos from Samantha & Zach’s wedding day!
