Summer Little Lights on the Lane Wedding

What a PERFECT summer wedding day this was! Little Lights on the Lane is one of the best wedding venues in Iowa. Not only is it incredible well thought out in terms of the space, but it is a photographer’s playground – SO many little spots for photos, unique decor, beautiful landscaping. It’s one of my top recommended venues. And I think when couples visit, they immediately fall in love. I know that was the case for Alyssa & Brandon!

When Alyssa & Brandon first reached out about their wedding day, one of the things Alyssa mentioned that was hugely important to her was having an stress-free day….and sunset photos. She definitely DEFINITELY wanted beautiful sunset photos. When their wedding day came, we were blessed with quite possibly the most perfect summer weather you could ask for and some of my favorites sunset photos of the year.

Abby & Will’s Little LIghts on the Lane Black Tie Wedding

Abby and Will’s exquisite black tie wedding at Little Lights on the Lane wouldn’t have happened if it had not been for one tiny moment at a friend’s party years ago when Will accidentally picked up Abby’s phone instead of his friends. Even though they had gone to school together all throughout elementary and high school, they didn’t connect until that pivotal moment. A two hour conversation later, and another serendipitous run-in at Lollapaplooza later that summer, and they knew it was something more. They both returned to college and began dating long distance for four years until they moved to Chicago together.

I instantly connected with Abby and Will – they are the kindest people and SO fun! We had an amazing time last spring for their engagement session in Chicago. I literally have never laughed so hard during a photoshoot than I did at theirs, so I knew their wedding day would be a blast! It’s one I’ve been looking forward to for a while – I love their wedding venue! Little Lights on the Lane is a beautiful space, and has so many wonderful spots for photos. Given that Abby & Will’s wedding was in November, we weren’t quite sure how the weather would cooperate. It ended up being quite cold and windy, which unfortunately meant we couldn’t do the grand outdoor ceremony, but the patio at Little Lights was the perfect back up plan!
