Hi, I'm Emily.

To my memory, I had never been to Sioux City before this past Saturday and, let me just say, if the city is as welcoming and kind as Michelle and Harrison’s families, I’ll go there again anytime.

We arrived a bit early and were able to explore the outside areas of the church that would work well for photos. It was a very hot day–high 90s–so shade was a high priority. The grounds of the church are expansive and stunning. Not only were there many fully mature trees, but the surrounding houses beside and across from the church were gorgeous old homes that photographed perfectly as backgrounds. (Fun note: we even used the front steps of one of the houses because I was obsessed with the hedges! Another house had a perfect picket fence that we used!)

I had laid the timeline out to include plenty of time for the large wedding party and family (Michelle comes from a family of nine kids!) and, because we also got started early, we were able to stay ahead of schedule the entire day. This meant that I could add in some “air conditioning timeouts” and water breaks for people, especially Michelle and Harrison.

But to go back to the beginning, I appreciate a bride who has all her details together (in a box that matched the wedding colors!) and ready to go upon arrival. Everything was thought out; down to the silk ribbon that coordinated-without-matching the shades of green in Harrison’s floral tie and the greenery stems in the bouquets.

Floral ties! Can we make these mandatory for grooms?

Michelle’s gown was a dream. The skirt was so light and flowy that it billowed out softly across the grass as she walked. Her custom sleeves were perfect for her as was the beautiful bow and button mixture in the back. But the slit! The slit was the star of the show, allowing for a glamorous look and, bonus, a breeze to her legs.

Remember their adore dog, Lucy? Michelle and Harrison hosted three signature cocktails, one for each of them, and then one “the Lucy” in honor of their baby.
