Like many couples in the era of Covid-19, this was not the day that Chaston and Paul had planned for their wedding. But like many other Covid Weddings, this intimate winter wedding was absolutely perfect!
The original plan was for Chaston and Paul to tie the knot in California earlier this year, however after the pandemic switched up their plans, they ended up choosing to get married at Chaston’s uncle’s property in Iowa City, Iowa. As the pictures can attest, the venue was absolutely stunning and the perfect back-up plan for this day. With a small amount of guests in attendance and a beautiful ceremony (not to mention a beautiful charcuterie board), their day was wonderful and it would be hard to tell that this wasn’t the plan all along!
Take a peek below for all the gorgeous details!
Florals: Hydrangea Bloom
Dress: Carolina Herrera
Shoes: Bella Belle
The traditional wedding invitations were a great precursor to this wedding!
I’m obsessed with the Bella Belle shoes!
So much beauty in these details!
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue!
It’s genuinely hard to tell that this home wasn’t made to be a wedding venue!
If there’s ever a day for monogrammed pajamas, it’s has to be your wedding day right?!
How easy is it to see the resemblance in these two?!
This veil was absolutely stunning! It added the perfect amount of details to Chaston’s simply stunning dress.
This room and this lighting created such a perfect atmosphere!
Somehow, I think this portable mug is also the perfect wedding accessory for any bride.
The letters and gifts that these two exchanged were so sweet and you can tell how excited that they each were.
I mean, how cool is it to see this joy after receiving this gift from his bride?
Every bride hopes to see this much excitement on their grooms face during a first look!
The way that these two look at each other is unmatched!
We can only hope that this picture ends up on a canvas in their home someday!
These gifts were such a highlight of the day!
Gorgeous florals by Hydrangea Bloom
These green and white florals outside the house created the perfect setting for these photos!
These kiddos looking on at the photos was such a cool moment!
First looks with dad are always such a sweet and emotional moment.
These sweet tears from Chaston’s dad were so precious.
The blue of the bridesmaid dresses was the perfect color to compliment the rest of the space.
Someone was excited to see the bride!
No matter the size of the wedding, this moment is always emotional.
You know it was an excellent ceremony when you get these kinds of laughs and those sweet looks at each other.
Who’s not a sucker for some gorgeous stairwell portraits?
These kids rocked their duties for the day and are obviously pretty photogenic!
This cake is absolutely gorgeous! And the simple details for the reception were perfect picks to fit in this space.
It’s not a covid wedding unless hand sanitizer is out!
Remember what I said about that charcuterie board at the beginning of the post – I rest my case.
These cute wooden chained spoons were such a unique addition to the cake cutting!
You just know that this best man had just told a great joke during his speech!
Every good wedding dance requires a group of kids who are going to go all out!
Chaston and Paul, thank you so much for letting us be a part of your day! Intimate weddings like this one are an honor to attend and it was a joy to capture your wedding! We wish you all the best!
