Iowa Backyard Wedding | Jessie + Bob | Iowa + Destination Wedding Photographer

Jessie and Bob had such a perfect, Iowa backyard wedding celebrating with their loved ones - and there were a lot of them - around 500, actually. WOW! When Jessie and Bob got engaged, Jessie said she’d like to have their wedding reception at Bob’s family farm. It was met with initial hesitation - that’s a lot of work shortly before harvest - but they pulled it off and it was INCREDIBLE. I can’t think of anything quite as heartwarming as getting married at your family backyard.

You might even guess that it was a wedding venue when you see the gorgeous red barns and the dance floor tent with twinkle lights in the backyard!

Jessie’s styling was incredible - from the burgundy and blush details, a dress fit for a princess, an amazing sweetheart table setup, and more! Though I wouldn’t say that’s what made the day stand out - what made it stand out was how genuinely happy everyone surrounding them were. You could see it in their faces, hear it in their words, and feel the happy energy!

It was such an honor to be a part of their amazing Midwest wedding on a beautiful Iowa summer day! There’s nothing quite like a Midwest sunset in the country and I am so so happy we slipped away from the party for a little while so they could soak up the tender moments of being married and make magic with that gorgeous light!

Their Iowa wedding day was just filled with so many family and it was so special. Jessie got ready with her bridesmaids, sister, and mom at her parent’s home, where she also shared her first look with Bob. Then, they finished their night at Bob’s parents place for an epic party! How sweet is that?

I can’t wait to watch Jessie and Bob’s joy and love filled life adventures!
