Jacque + Zach | Engagement Session | Delhi, Iowa

Jacque and Zach are getting married on May 26th at St. Matthias Catholic Church in Cascade, with a reception following at the New Vienna Community Hall. Their wedding will feature black suits, victorian lilac and wisteria purple with silver accents. It’s going to be absolutely beautiful!

What is your vision for your wedding photography?
“I am hoping for a laid back/nonstressful day.  I would like lots of pictures.  Some of my favorite pictures to look at are ones that are not planned/informal; I feel like these pictures really capture people’s personality and the true spirit of the day.  I would call our day more traditional themed.” -Jacque

What are you most looking forward to on your wedding day?
“I am excited for the entire day.  Zach has even expressed to me how he can’t wait for the wedding.  We can’t wait to be with all of our family and friends.  We have lots of family traveling from across the country to come to the wedding.  We also do not get to see our friends as often as we did once upon a time due to children now being in the picture for many of them, so in addition they will all be there.” -Jacque

The Proposal Story: 
“Zach proposed June 17th.  We had decided not to do gifts for the year but instead do a mini-trip to spend time together.  We decided to go to the Tim McGraw and Faith Hill concert in Moline.  Zach proposed after we had checked into the hotel just before leaving to grab dinner and drinks before the concert.”

Photographer: Cumberland Weddings | Mandy Pasker

Kerry + Curt | Engagement Session | Earlville, Iowa

Jaclyn captured these two perfectly; she is not only their photographer, but she’s also Kerry’s cousin. Kerry and Cut are getting married on September 15th at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Earlville, with a reception following at Worthington Memorial Hall in Worthington. Jaclyn is so excited to document their wedding!

Kerry and Curt met three and a half years ago on a blind date set up by mutual friends. When asked what makes them most excited when they think of marriage, they answered “We are most excited about spending the rest of our lives together. Always having a support system, a person to vent to after a bad day, and knowing at the end of the day we have each other. Yes, we already have that now, but something about saying we are getting married makes it mean so much more.”

The Proposal Story:
“The previous Christmas I had booked a hog hunting trip to Texas with my dad and Curt. Little did I know at the time, they had teamed up and gave me quite the surprise! Curt knew I would pack our bags as I am the planner out of both us, so he had my dad bring the ring in his suitcase. Somehow Curt had gotten the ring from the suitcase to the binocular bag before we went out for the evening hunt. We had just gotten in the hut and he kept asking for his binoculars and I couldn’t figure out why he needed them right this second as they were in the bottom of the bag. As soon as I got the binocular bag out, he grabbed it from my hands, saying he saw something he needed to look at. When I finished putting stuff back in the bag, I turned to see a shiny object in his hand and he said “Will you marry me?” I was so shocked that I didn’t even say yes right away and he had to ask again, even though he already knew the answer. Not only did he propose, but he also shot his first hog within a half hour afterwards! We all came home with hogs that weekend, but also a wonderful memory too!”

“I could list a lot of things that I love about her, but I think what I love most about Kerry is how kind and caring she is. She goes out of her way to do anything for me, even if means me coming before her. From doing every day things around the house to surprising me with little things like my favorite candy or a little note in my lunch box, she is always thinking of me.”

“I love how dependable he is, I can always count on him to be there for me. He goes above and beyond to make sure that I’m happy. Whether it’s saving me from creepy crawlies (spiders and lady bugs are my arch enemy) or making me laugh after a long day. No matter what, I know he’s going to be there and for that I am forever grateful to have such a special man to share my life with.”

“Our favorite thing to do together as a couple is a tie between curling up and watching a movie and being in the outdoors. There are some days we love curling up in bed and watching a movie and then there are other days where we pack up our fishing gear and go fishing.”

“I think our favorite part about our engagement session was our photographer! She made everything feel so natural and made us laugh! She even cuddled a tree to help describe what she wanted us to do, how could we not laugh at that! Curt doesn’t get excited about having his picture taken, but even he said that he enjoyed himself and is looking forward to taking MORE pictures on our wedding day!”
