I say it all the time and I’ll say it again… I have the best Brides. Wayne & Mary Ellen’s Wedding was on a beautiful November day in Missouri and I happened to be very sick while pregnant with our third child. Mary Ellen was so gracious the entire day, she kept asking if I was ok. That is just the sweet, nurturing kind of woman Mary Ellen is! And what a beautiful Bride! This day was filled with so much fun and SO much laughter! Wayne & Mary Ellen thank you for allowing us to be part of your wonderful Wedding Day! We wish you all of God’s very best Blessings!
What is it about Weddings that we love so much? It’s the genuine moments that might only last a second that we are able to capture…it’s Grandma giving the Bride her Grandfather’s purple heart to carry with her down the aisle… it’s the surprise the Groom has for the Bride, something totally unexpected…
It was so fun looking back on this past year and reflecting on my favorite moments… Here is a glimpse into IHI Weddings and the beautiful 19 Weddings with stunning details that made us swoon!
Scott and Rebekah’s day was filled with beautiful details, perfect weather and a Bride that looked like a princess! This backyard wedding is easily one of our favorites from 2013! Enjoy!Venue: Private Backyard
Their Engagement story is unique… Nicky is a dancer for the Omaha Beef–an Indoor Football League. She says, “Dance is my passion and one day I plan on pursuing a career in the NFL and NBA. Brody, my boyfriend, knew of this passion since day one and has always encouraged me to chase my dreams!! Brody worked it out with my dance coach and the Omaha Beef staff to purpose to me on May 11, 2013 at our home game. At the game, I noticed all my friends and family there and I had no clue what was coming. This made me so excited! Little did I know Brody would be proposing. After our first dance, I cheered for the crowd. To my surprise, my teammates were forming two lines for a tunnel. All of a sudden, out comes Brody to Bruno Mars’s “Marry Me”. He got down on one knee in front of thousands of people and said, “Will you let me watch you dance for the rest of your life? Will you marry me?!” In shock I dropped my poms!!!! I said YES!!!! He incorporated all of our friends and family in it, and of course dance. He knew that I would have loved being proposed to where I love most–on the field dancing. It has been a whirl-wind ever since and I cannot wait to marry him!!! His proposal means so much to me. Not only because I love him more than anything, but a constant reminder to never give up on my dreams.”
Brody and Nicky are planning a beautiful Wedding in the Fall of 2014 and TW and I are so blessed to have this couple in our lives, not only as clients, but friends as well…
They were up for anything adventurous! These following shots were taken on our land in Iowa!
Blake & Tina’s Wedding is easily one of my favorites this year! I loved the Sunflowers,the Bridesmaids long elegant dresses, and the groomsmen’s custom superhero cufflinks! Blake & Tina I wish you nothing but the best as you continue on the great journey that is marriage!
Sweet moments and creative details are words I would use to describe Jordan & Shelby’s Wedding day. From start to finish every detail expressed their style and creativity. Shelby is an Event Planner and she is SO GOOD at what she does! And to top it all off I may have found a new favorite Ceremony Venue in the Holland Center in Downtown Omaha! Jordan & Shelby, I wish you happiness and God’s blessings in the many years to come. Thank you for allowing me to capture these memories!
Weddings are a whirlwind of events. Sometimes there is not quite enough time as the couple would like to set aside for romantic portraits. Trending now is the “After Wedding Bridal Session” This allows a great deal more time for those sweet moments you want captured! Watch for this to be introduced in new packages offered by IHIWeddings beginning Oct 2013!
Beautiful details, colors, and incredibly lovely Bride. Matt & Abby’s day was absolutely a day to be treasured. Mr. & Mrs. Bova, thank you for allowing me the priviledge of capturing your day! I love you both dearly and can’t wait to watch as the Lord continues to use you to make a difference for His Kingdom!
Spontaneous Dance Party…Love it!
