Nick + Jill // 11.3.18

Nick and Jill’s wedding was bittersweet for me, because it’s my last wedding of the year this year! This year I had 20 AMAZING couples trust me to capture their love story, and Nick + Jill’s SUPER fun sports themed wedding was an amazing way to wrap up my year. These two were so fun to hang out with all day! He’s so sweet to her and she’s so beautiful and spunky, and I loved spending the day with them.

The girls day started out at the salon where they had their hair and makeup done— their matching plaid shirts were SO cute! After being pampered and prettied up, they make their way back to Windsor Heights Community Center to finish setting up and decorating. Nick and Jill originally had planned for an outdoor ceremony, but because of the rain (crazy, unpredictable Iowa weather!) things had to be moved inside. Not once, the whole day, did I hear Nick or Jill complain about the rain— they were too excited to be married to let that get them down!

After finishing decorating, Jill’s girls helped her get into her dress! She literally looked like a princess, I could not wait for her first looks with dad and Nick! Jill put on her jewelry then made her way outside for her first look with her dad. I LOVED this moment— I’d heard how Jill spoke so highly of her dad, it’s so evident how much she cherishes him… and in the moments leading up to her walking out, he made it so clear how amazing he thinks she is! I love their daddy-daughter relationship so much. After her first look with dad, Jill went back inside to hide while Nick came out. He was already beaming, and the giant smile on his face when he turned to see her melted my heart.

Following portraits, everyone gathered in the sports-theme decorated community center to wait for the ceremony to start. After a short and sweet ceremony, Nick and Jill sealed their marriage with a kiss before walking out holding a flag. Following their grand entrance, toasts were shared, dinner was eaten, and dances began. Nick and Jill wrapped up their special day celebrating with those who love them most!

Check out my faves from their day!
