Joel & Hanna - Wedding

On April 29, Joel and Hanna were married at Calvary CRC in Orange City, IA with the reception following at Living Water church. I’ve known Hanna since high school – we were in soccer together! – and it was such a joy to be able to capture their big day and be reminded of all of our laughs and inside jokes that we used to share on the field.

Joel and Hanna had a simple yet elegant wedding that fit their personalities perfectly. And what a beautiful time of year to have a wedding! It was a little breezy, but the trees were blossoming and the lighting was spectacular and the wedding party was a dream.

How cute are the umbrellas? It may not have been raining…but that doesn’t matter. 

My job as a photographer is to ensure that the pictures look great, and part of that is making sure the wedding party has fun. This was definitely not an issue for this group! Hanna has always been so sweet, and her new husband compliments her perfectly. The entire wedding party was so great and so easy to work with. Even if one of the groomsmen had some tie issues…which were him being too tall for his tie to handle!

Also, the mother of the bride should probably be hired as a wedding planner, decorator, and baker! She did so much for this wedding and made everything look just splendid – I was very impressed with everything about this day and it was a great way to kick off the wedding season!
