Laura + Adam = Married!

Ceremony:  St. Mary's Catholic Church - Iowa City, Iowa
Reception:  Marriott - Coralville, Iowa


The first time I officially met Laura and Adam was on their wedding day.  Adam and Laura are great together - these two really know how to have a good time together!  The church they chose to be married in was ornate and beautiful and the reception location was equally as beautiful.  


My favorite thing that happened - let me tell you!  Adam and Laura knew of this awesome barn that they wanted to shoot at.  While the three of us were finishing up, the owner of the property came over with his golf cart to give us a lift back... then he told us about a sacred stone circle just up the road a bit.  He said that he owned the land and we could go ahead back there and take photos.  We drove on a gravel road and into a field.  In the field was a beautiful grouping of 4000 year old stones moved from the Indonesian Archipelego in 2002 to it's current location.  Amazing.  I wished we could have spent a lot more time there... wow.  :)


Congratulations Laura and Adam!
