This wedding was one of my favorites that took place earlier this season. It was actually the first time I had shot at the Barnes Place in Adel, IA and I immediately loved the rustic charm and scenic views this location provided.

It wasn't all smooth sailing though — the morning of their wedding started out extremely wet as the rain relentlessly fell. For a while, it was questionable if an outside wedding would even be a possibility. However, with some silent prayers and persistence, we held out until the last minute when the sun finally poked out through the clouds and dried the ceremony space in time for the wedding. 

As for Jordan and Shelby, what more can I say about this beautiful couple? They're fun, down-to-earth people who put together an amazing wedding. It was such an awesome experience to work with them and have their unwavering trust in me as I captured their special day.
