Wedding in Iowa City : Amanda and Ryan
Amanda and Ryan celebrated their lives together with a beautiful wedding in Iowa City a few weekends ago and Kari and I were so honored to capture it for them. They had a number of friends and family from around the U.S. to witness the event, which made the day so incredibly fun. We have met so many good people shooting weddings and we always feel so privileged to do this (and call it “work”-HA!). The friends of Amanda and Ryan that were part of this day were so kind, thoughtful, and caring. It is apparent that these two have lived a wonderful life before they met if you gauge them by the caliber of friends they keep.
Ryan is VP at West Music, based out of Coralville. He travels a lot for his work and recently while in New Orleans inquired about a suit for his wedding day. The only advice from Amanda that was given to him was to think “bling” while picking it out. I think the one he ended up with fits that description well. Amanda is a busy girl, working with a few other people in Iowa City and Cedar Rapids to get the creative group to gather on a regular basis to share ideas, collaborate, and learn from each other. She has several other community minded organizations that “put the right people with the right people”. Another one of her latest ventures is the creativecorridor.co in which she collaborates with a team of creative individuals who are “connecting, celebrating, and supporting all those who create in Iowa’s creative corridor”.
We had such an amazing day with these two and their families and friends. The day was filled with laughter and reminiscing, then the evening was filled with amazing food, great speeches, and dancing at the Solstead farm. Enjoy!
This was a fabulous day and we are extremely grateful to Amanda and Ryan, their family, and their friends for having us join them on this wonderful occasion. I’ve still got my flask of whiskey to toast with you next time I see you both! Cheers!
