Natalie and Ian live in Wisconsin, but knew they wanted to get married in their home town of Ames, Iowa. Together they planned an October wedding in Ian’s family’s backyard, with a reception at Snus Hill Winery to follow. Natalie and Ian planned the wedding around the season, incorporating the saturated oranges, purples and reds of the fall foliage into all of the handmade decorations. On the morning of the wedding, which started out ominously cold and grey, Ian gathered his friends for a bike tour around town as Natalie settled in to an early hair appointment with her mother and sisters. Just before the ceremony, the sun broke through the clouds and shined throughout the rest of what was most certainly a perfect day!
