Ok, let me start off by saying HOLY COW! Both my second photographer and my jaws dropped when we walked in the door to Sarah and Tanner's wedding venue. Bessie's Barn in Centerville, Iowa is seriously like stepping into a country fairytale. If I could photograph every wedding there from here on out I'd be just giddy about it. The barn is set up with beautiful chandeliers and twinkle lights. It has beautiful restored barn wood for the floors and every detail in the beauty of the barn has been accentuated. The owners built this barn on their property specifically for their daughters wedding. Talk about some pretty awesome parents! If you are ever looking for the most amazing, outstanding, and dream country venue this is your place!

The day began by photographing all the details of the day. Sarah and Tanner and their parents spent countless hours working out every little detail and it showed. Every where you turned there was something perfectly made for that spot. They even had a kids corner with a TV, small table and chairs, personalized activity books, crafts, and more. That had to be the greatest idea ever! Sarah arrived and looked amazing before she even stepped into her dress. She's as sweet as apple pie and I am absolutely smitten with her. If I could shrink her and put her in my pocket I'd do it. Tanner arrived full of smiles. You could tell in an instant how happy and excited he was.

The ceremony was perfect, of course. The soft haze of sunlight coming in through the stain glass windows above them just added to the romance. They symbolically "tied the knot" and then did the cutest thing ever by signing the marriage license "contract" on each others backs in front of all their loved ones! Adorbs.

The night was awesomeness. Everyone, and I do mean everyone, danced the night away. Good food, good drinks, and great music with your friends and family, how much better can it get? Oh yeah, the crazy cool sparkler exit! Sarah took some advice I gave her on how to get the perfect sparkler shot and boy did it pay off! It's one of the bazillion of my favorite shots from this wedding. Just putting together the pictures for the blog post made me smile and put in me awe all over again. Sarah and Tanner, I honestly can't tell you how thankful I am to you. My world is greater for knowing you and photographing you. I can't think of two people who are more in love and more meant for each other than you two. I wish you every ounce of love and happiness in this world. I can't wait to see you again soon!
