Recap it up! {Wedding in Iowa}

Josh and I had a full weekend including lotsa driving... it was SO worth it! We got to be a part of a beautiful Iowa wedding of my friend Heidi & her now hubby Mike.

On our drive however.... we had a sad story happen. A rock decided that it wanted to be friends with our windshield. CRACK.

Cell Phone Pic - Josh was driving...

Anyways, we started the drive around 1pm on Friday and arrived to Iowa in the eve. We got dinner at a funny little country/family buffet. We got a good laugh out of how cute it was :) (No pictures to document. sad story again.)

HOWEVER... the happiest story...

The wedding was gorgeous and I got to spend time with the bridal party and Heidi as they got ready! I was Heidi's day-of-coordinator helping her with the little details :) Right up my alley! I loved it! OH and I got to snap some CANDID photos while they were getting ready...



MARRIED --- MR & MRS BATISTA!!!

Here is the HA North Crew that was at the wedding! So fun!

Also, the photographers were AWESOME! I had a great time watching them in action... I learned a LOT! They even let me sneak outside with them when the lighting was FANTASTIC and snap some shots:


Noemi & Sue were the  photographers... I am looking forward to seeing all the shots!

And... when we got home...  I realized Josh and I did not get even one picture together. Saddest story of all. My handsome hubby was such a great help! I love him.

Oh and did I mention... 5 days till our 1 year anniversary and trip to SAN DIEGO!


HAPPY MONDAY!

Oh Ria. I wish I had known you when I got married. Your photos are so beautiful. It does not hurt that the bride is nothing short of glamorous *wink*. Wishing you a Happy first year together and many more years to come. A year and a half later and still the best choice I’ve ever made is marrying Bear. Take care.
