Jennifer + Andrew | Cedar Rapids, Iowa Mermaid Wedding

Jennifer and Andrew's mermaid-themed wedding on July 8th was a first for me! It's not very often that I get to photograph a wedding with a theme (and I love mermaids, so I was pretty excited). There were a lot of little touches that added to the day--tiny starfish in the flowers and in the bride's hair, an amazing chalk drawing on the wall at the reception (which was at Shores Event Center, I LOVE that place), and a really cute cake topper to match everything.

I shared a lot of laughs with this couple, their friends, and their families. I truly had a great time shooting and editing their wedding. My favorite part of the day, by far, was when the couple surprised their guests with a choreographed dance to "Pony" by Ginuwine. I was laughing so hard that I could hardly hold my camera still!

Congratulations again to Jennifer and Andrew! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your big day! Below are some of my favorite shots!
