Brent + Ashley {a midwest wedding}

My first wedding of the season was a fun and beautiful wedding in middle-America.

The week leading up to the day had been sunny and warm in Nebraska; perfect early summer weather. The morning of, we worried about clouds rolling in and heavy winds. Although the weather did limit us a bit from getting as many photographs as we wanted to outside, we made it work! The town of Genoa is small and Ashley’s family probably knew everyone that lived there, including the man who had the keys to “The Indian School”.  In 1884 the school was opened up and eventually ended up serving Native American children from ten states and over 20 tribes until the government closed it down during the Great Depression.  Now the school is a museum and is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

If you’ve never been welcomed by a big community of Nebraskans in a small town, you’re missing out :)

Thanks so much for having me, Ashley and Brent.  May you be blessed in your life together!!

Zoie Love

Ok I may be a little bias, but I am loving these pictures!  Zoie is our niece (one out of 18!!), but our only niece in Colorado so far. Josh and Bonnie are pretty great, too :)

We went to this gorgeous spot in Boulder, spent some time under the spring sun, and it was wonderful.
