After the formal portraits finished, Brandon and Emily's ceremony began. It was held in the River Room at the Grand Harbor Hotel in Dubuque. It was simply stunning. The large glass walls overlooked the river and the whole room was filled with the afternoon light.
Their ceremony was filled with personal touches. Their officiant even brought their much loved dog into his sermon, much to the joy and amusement of everyone in the room.
The wedding reception was held at the hotel as well. It was beautifully decorated with candles, flowers, and frames. I loved the table decor!
When I arrived, Emily gave me an envelope that included her wedding invitation, RSVP card, and wedding day program. I love when couples give me an invitation. It is one of the details of the wedding day I rarely have the opportunity to capture.
Before heading into the reception, we took a moment to photograph Brandon and Emily on the walkway outside of the River Room. The point of the room was a gorgeous location for portraits.
Their reception was filled with beautiful speeches, dancing, and wonderful moments with friends and family. After night fell, we stole Brandon and Emily away from the celebration for a few minutes to go out again onto the Riverwalk. I love the images we captured out there!
Congratulations to Brandon and Emily! Thank you for allowing us to share in your beautiful day! Also, a big thank you to my assistant, Greg Frieden for all your help in capturing this event!
