Memorial Day weekend, I had the pleasure of capturing Dan & Dazi's wedding at the Old Capital in Iowa City. The Old Capital is a beautiful location, one I have photographed outside of many, many times. Generally the interior is off limits to professional photography, but as they have recently opened their venue to hold weddings they are now allowing photography for couples who have their weddings at the Old Capital.
I loved, loved, loved photographing inside the Old Capital. Not only is the architecture gorgeous, but it is filled with beautiful natural light. I had such a blast working in there.
I loved all of the beautiful large windows, but I think my favorite part of the Old Capital was the stunning spiral staircase. It was a beautiful location for the first look and portraits.
After the ceremony, we walked down to the Ped Mall. The bridal party stopped at Whitey's to get ice cream and visit the groom themed Herky statue in front of Whitey's. Then we walked around downtown for some additional portraits of Dan and Dazi with their bridal party.
Their reception was held at the University Club. It is a wonderful venue and was beautifully decorated. The DJ for the evening, Bill from Unique Events, kept everything running smoothly and kept the dance floor full. I adore working with all of the guys at Unique Events, not only are they amazing DJs who go the extra mile for their clients, but they are also so respectful of other vendors. While it wasn't in the schedule of events for the evening, we needed a moment to capture a portrait of Dan & Dazi with her grandparents since we were unable to earlier in the day. Bill made sure we were able to find the time to get the portrait done before we lost the light outside.
Congratulations to Dan and Dazi! Thank you for including Geno Photography in your beautiful wedding day. Also, a big thank you to Greg Frieden for assisting me in capturing this beautiful event!
