I just can’t believe the way I feel about you, girl
Like a river meets the sea,
Stronger than it’s ever been.
We’ve come so far since that day
And I thought I loved you then
— Brad Paisley

Jenna and Treye’s wedding took place on one of the most popular days in June! And what a day it was. A few rainstorms hit Pella right before their first look was going to take place, but Jenna took it in stride. Sure enough, after waiting it out, the rains passed and the sun came out (bringing humidity right along with it!). Classic Iowa summers.

It was such an honor to photograph this wedding day. After taking photos of their proposal in a Des Moines escape room, and then engagement photos later last fall, this day was long awaited on my end—and even more for these two! They’ve worked through so much in the past year. Getting to know each other, meeting family members, making memories, buying a house, getting a puppy, walking through some tough days, and persevering with humility, tenderness, and love.

Jenna got ready for her wedding day in the cutest Air BNB cottage near downtown Pella! Her mom, grandma, and all her bridesmaids were in attendance to help her not miss a beat. Jenna was STUNNING in her backless dress, and you’ll see soon enough my obsession with her florals. Shelly Sarver does it again! A first look overlooking a pond, songs sang and recorded by the couple during the ceremony, and photos with their puppy at their Pella home…this is one wedding day blog you’re going to want to view!

I’ve just got to share a few more of my favorite portraits from this day. Jenna and Treye were so wonderfully present with their friends and family throughout the day (getting ready, during the ceremony, at the reception) but they also obliged us “camera ladies” with some great moments to capture portraits. I can’t wait to see what they decide to print… or maybe they’ll order an album someday…because DANG they have some great ones to pick from!
