Jacqueline and Gavin share a love of the great outdoors. After spending their very first date on a fishing expedition, they knew right away they had found the perfect catch in one another. When it came time to plan their wedding, they knew they wanted to capture the very best of the fall in Iowa. They planned every detail – taking extra care to ensure that friends and family all had a role in the festivities. Their day was exquisitely captured by Kyle Dreher, of Landing Feet First Photography and it’s easy to see these two share a love as pure as the sky is blue. Thanks to Landing Feet First Photography for sharing these beautiful images and to Jacqueline and Gavin for sharing their day with us!

From the Bride, Jacqueline…
“Gavin and I have always shared the love of the outdoors – our first date was an all night fishing trip under the stars! I made him fall in love with me by outfishing him! We wanted our wedding to be as unique as us, so we started by deciding to get married outside and take advantage of the beautiful Iowa fall weather. Our wedding was filled with things we love; family, friends, fishing, hunting, gardening, and antiques! I loved the tables decorated with antiques, antlers, pheasant feathers and homegrown flowers. To make our guests feel at home, we enjoyed home cooked meal served family style and ate on antique china plates. Our family and friends made their best specialties for dessert! Our head table was a big family table where our families ate together like a Sunday dinner. My bouquet was made by my mom with brooches from family and friends. Gavin’s mom made all the hand-painted signs and my favorite “H” crested banner. My sister made our wedding cake and we used my grandpa’s caketopper from his wedding. We had a lot of fun canning veggies from our garden for guests to take home. I love that every detail of our wedding uniquely represented us – but the help and support from our family and friends made our wedding day as amazing as it was!”
