Megan + Mitch [Waterloo, IA Wedding and Supervisor's Club Reception]

Where do I begin with Megan and Mitch? I first met them at their winter engagement session this past January, where Josh and I got to spend time not only taking photos but also getting to know them a bit better. We had such a great time at that session, and I was really looking forward to seeing them again! Their wedding took place on September 29th, at the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Waterloo and it was a beautiful fall day with temperatures a warm 80 degrees (perfect for those outdoor photos!).

My favorite things about Megan and Mitch are their laid back nature and wonderful sense of humor. These two qualities made for an amazing day full of fun and a lot of laughter, and I was very sad to see it end. These two are gorgeous both inside and out, and their families were so kind, which made our job so easy. Lucky for us, we get to see these two again when Megan's brother John gets married in the spring!

To Megan and Mitch, thank you so much for inviting us to document your wedding day. It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of it, and I'm so sad it's over (but thankful that I will see you guys at John and Macayla's wedding!). Congratulations again, we wish you the best now and always.

I apologize in advance for the photo heavy post, it was just so hard to choose! To view even more photos from Megan and Mitch's day, you can view their custom wedding website HERE

Megan made these for the reception, so although this photo was taken later in the day I feel it is a fitting way to begin the blog post.

These petals were the ones that the flower girl threw as she made her way down the aisle, I just love the rich color!

Megan's Maggie Sottero gown was gorgeous and suited her perfectly. The room the girls got ready in had these beautiful stained glass windows, which made a beautiful backdrop for her dress.

For the first look, we had Mitch close his eyes until Megan came up to him and put her hands on his cheeks. I just love these images, they are so sweet. mcalister-4850 copy

Megan teased him a little bit, asking us "how long should I make him wait?" as she stood directly in front of him.

Megan did an amazing job of scouting the third location, which was this little park on the way to the reception. The leaves were stunning, making a perfect background for photos.

Once we arrived at the reception, we took advantage of the beautiful light and got some really pretty images of Megan and Mitch (along with their bridal party).

I love this photo of Megan, she looks so happy.  mcalister-6371 copy

I have many, many favorites but this one is the photo that I think gives you the best sense of the kind of people Megan and Mitch are - happy, laid back, and fun.
