Jess and JJ wanted nothing more than to have an outdoor wedding at these amazing gates on the campus of Simpson College. Everything was finally going right after over a year or health problems and difficult planning….then, the rain came. And it rained, and rained and rained. When I arrived everyone was honestly in kind of poor spirits, which is 100% how I would be. Jess decided that if nothing else she wanted to be able to do their first look outside at the gates. So, rain be damned, we went out into the rain and photographed their first look! And then the most amazing thing happened…it cleared up!!! Just minutes after their first look was over the clouds lifted and so did everyone’s spirits!! The rest of the day was beautiful! Jess and JJ really made their wedding day their own with unique touches like custom bridal party shoes and fun sunglasses! They are truly a one-of-a-kind couple!! Here are some of my favs from their wedding…enjoy!
