Kara and Anders had the most beautiful day for their fall Oak Hill wedding! Oak Hill is a gorgeous venue in Apple River. The trees that spread throughout and around the property are especially gorgeous in the fall! No to mention how gorgeous the fields are. It’s a truly magical venue for weddings and Kara and Anders’ day was no exception. With a lot of challenges facing them up to the wedding day, these two embraced every moment of their day. They loved on each other, laughed with their friends, and danced the night away. It was certainly a day to remember!
The ladies started the day getting ready at Fringe Salon in downtown Dubuque. This salon is so cool with the exposed brick walls! We then all traveled to Oak Hill for the ladies to get dressed and get all ready for the rest of the day! Kara was smoldering!!!! Seriously-hair, makeup, dress, veil, jewelry-all on point! The guys got ready downstairs in the barn house. I had to laugh at the fact that some of them used the oven as a “mirror” while they tied their ties! Kara and Anders’ first look was filled with huge grins and happiness! We spent some time wandering about the property with Kara and Anders taking photos all along the way. Aren’t they so cute together? Their wedding party joined us next. Some of the kiddos weren’t overly enthusiastic about photos… What a great wedding party! The ceremony took place late in the afternoon as the sun was dipping below the hills. It was a heartfelt and very personal ceremony that was truly perfect for these two. After the ceremony we snuck away for a couple more quick photos as the sun continued to fall. Before we knew it, it was time for the party to begin!!! What a fun night it was!
Kara and Anders, thank you for asking us to share your day with you! We had such a great time getting to know you both and wish you the best in your marriage!
As always, we want to thank the vendors that helped Kara and Anders have a beautiful day!
