Marshalltown, Iowa | Claire + John

Nature Inspired Elegant Winter Wedding. 


Claire & John went to high school together but went their separate ways leaving Iowa after graduation. Over the years they had made their way back home to Marshalltown, Iowa where Claire’s aunt was determined to get these two dating! After a few months Claire was really not interested in dating and wanted to just enjoy being home. In the Summer of 2018 a Tornado left the town devastated as hundreds of homes were damaged and dozens more businesses were right in the tornado’s path, including Claire’s. Her car had been hit with a tree and she was left stranded and unable to communicate with anyone for help. As she started her way down the street in utter dismay she saw someone walking toward her. It was John, as if he were some kind of superhero coming out of the dust. From that day they were inseparable. Fate playing its part in the most dramatic way. Their love is one that is felt by everyone around them whether that’s family, friends or a stranger. 

This winter wedding was inspired by Claire’s love for nature using everygreen they had foraged from a friends farm.
