Ryan + Kendra // Colorful Rustic Wedding at The North Place

These two braved some cold temps and frigid wind for some great wedding day shots! Kendra booked me to cover their day starting with her getting ready at The North Place near Hull, IA. This adorable little farmhouse has the perfect bed and breakfast feel and makes the perfect bridal suite! Kendra got ready in the loft bedroom upstairs and we got some gorgeous images.

How beautiful are these florals? I love the bold mix of colors and textures!

Kendra requested a first look with her Dad before she saw Ryan and this staircase was the perfect spot!

We didn't have much snow on the ground for this early March wedding in Iowa but the temps were still freezing cold! Kendra was such a trooper in the cold! I'm always so thankful when brides are willing to brave the cold for outdoor photos. They never disappoint!

We moved into the corncrib on The North Place's property and I LOVED how the aged wood looked in these photos! It worked so well with Kendra's bouquet!

I think it's safe to say that Ryan and Kendra rocked these serious poses! Basically model material, these two!

The plum dresses with those gorgeous florals though! SO pretty!

Ryan and Kendra's ceremony took place at New Life Church in Sioux Center, IA. They kept the decor simple with this gorgeous wood arch decorated with sheer fabric and stunning floral accents.
