TELLING STORIES OF

LOVE

Casey & NiCole | Wedding

When they first met, NiCole didn’t want anything to do with him. After his persistence, she finally decided to give him a chance and they went out for drinks. On their first date, NiCole was upfront with Casey and told him exactly what she was looking for – “marriage, kids, the whole thing.” At the end of her speech she said, “Are you in?” and his response was, “Yes.” A couple years later, he asked for her hand in marriage and SHE said “yes!” This was the first couple I’ve met where the groom planned the wedding! NiCole was in charge of planning the honeymoon, and they just got back from Aruba! I have been so excited to share these photos ever since October 18th, 2014… the day Casey & NiCole tied the knot (literally!) This was one of the greatest weddings I’ve ever had the privilege of witnessing. Casey and NiCole celebrated their “Sweetest Day” at the ISU Alumni Center in Ames, Iowa, where both the ceremony and reception took place. It all started with a fun surprise from NiCole’s dog, Doodles….

Next, it was time for the funnest wedding reception I’ve ever had the honor of photographing! Including a fun slideshow of how it all started for Casey & NiCole, delicious food, beautiful speeches, a surprise visit from ISU’s mascot, Cy, lots of good dance moves, and the night ended with a plank-off on the dance floor!
