Meranda & Dason's Wedding, at the Lied Lodge at Arbor Day Farm in Nebraska City, was upscale elegance meets relaxed & meaningful, all wrapped into one. The couple looked SOOOO FANTASTIC, as did the rest of their wedding party. I just loved how the bridal party dresses in different colors made the perfect fall palette.
One of my favorite things was Meranda being able to do a first look with her son. It was such a special moment (I got a little teary eyed!).
The couple had a beautiful outdoor ceremony on the back lawn. Some of my favorite things from their ceremony... these two both appreciate a good toast. At the end of their ceremony everyone at the wedding enjoyed some champagne and a toast to the couple... Seriously, HOW FUN! The boys also brought in a special bouquet in memory of Meranda's mom. It was so sweet and she got front row aisle, the best seat in the house. It was a beautiful and meaningful part of the ceremony.
I loooooooved the details at their reception. This was the first time I've had a couple with a cigar bar... SO CLASSY! They had elegant, personalized match books, cigar cutters, & wine stoppers. They are lucky to have such beautiful friends and family. Dason's best friend and Meranda's sister both gave the sweetest speeches. By the end there wasn't a dry eye in the house.
We finished out the night with a beautiful couples sunset portrait and toasts. Cheers and congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Wentes!
