Summer Wedding in Grinnell: Clinton & Renae

They’ve waited quite a while for this day, and it was beautiful, wonderful, and completely joyous.  Celebrating Clinton & Renae’s wedding day was such an honor, thank you for allowing me to capture your day.  I’ve really enjoyed getting to know both of you!  I’m also incredibly grateful for the friendship I have with Clinton’s parents – they are the most caring people you’ll ever meet!

Their wedding day was kind of gray and stormy most of the day, but we were able to snag some great portraits outside even with the threat of rain.

This is my favorite photo of Renae from the entire day.  You look beautiful!

Right before the first look…

I loved the florals, as well as the different dresses Renae chose.  So fun!

Clinton & Renae had perhaps one of the quickest ceremonies I’ve ever been to – 12 minutes!  I had to work fast, but I snagged this sweet moment during the lighting of the unity candle.


How cool is this grooms cake!?!

Clinton’s grandparents won the “longest married” dance-off, and shared a brief spin around the floor with the newlyweds.  This moment was so special!

This one’s for you, Christa!

Congrats to the newlyweds!
