Jessica + Loren | Jesup, Iowa Wedding

I first met Jessica and Loren at their engagement session in March. I could tell right away that they were going to be a fun couple to work with and was excited for their wedding day.  I was heartbroken for them when I found out that Jessica's mother, Kari Saunders, had passed away just a couple of months after our session.

I never met Kari, but by the end of Jessica and Loren's wedding day, I felt like I knew her. There were so many beautiful little additions to the wedding to honor her (I still have the green dot on my camera) and so many stories. I know now exactly why Jessica is so sweet and kind. I wanted to make sure that the couple had beautiful photographs to look back on, so I hope they are in love with all of them!

I loved all of the pretty peacock-themed decor, and especially liked the bouquets. I also really enjoyed the slideshows that were played at the reception (I love looking at old photos, even if they aren't mine). Congratulations again to Jessica and Loren!
