Brianna and Reid had one of the most fun and laid back weddings at St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa. Reid and Brianna are two of the most relaxed and go-with-the-flow people I know. If you meet them you can instantly sense that they’re just really fun people. Their entire wedding was a representation of that!
Brianna and Reid met when they attended West High School together. (Where my Falcons at!?!) They instantly had a connection and the rest, as they say, is history (even though they met in Chemistry class).
They fared through the awkward teenage years, into the college years, and straight through to young adulthood and the craziness that that may bring. Along the way they got a house and a dog, and finally now are married!
Brianna recently was confirmed into the Catholic faith at their home church in Davenport. Brianna’s faith means a lot to her so they opted to have a full catholica mass for their ceremony. Having something that meaningful and knowing the reason behind it made the day even more special than most normal ceremonies. And yet – even through the traditions of religion; Brianna and Reid found a way to make the ceremony their own and we all shared a good amount of laughs throughout.
Following the ceremony we headed to Brianna and Reid’s favorite bar; Grumpy’s in the East Village. I made sure to send Ashley on the party bus to capture some of that crazy good time I knew they were bound to have and then we made our way back to St. Ambrose for their reception.
There were dances, drinks, plenty of good food and then…. oh and then there was the Zumba dance. As soon as Brianna told me that this was happening a few months ago I could hardly contain my excitement. I’m a sucker for a good choreographed dance and I am a Zumba lover at heart. Brianna did not disappoint and that girl’s hips don’t lie. They started the party and got everyone up on their feet.
Brianna and Reid’s wedding was so much fun, I think I’m going to need the entire week to recover. But thank you both so much for allowing us to capture your amazing wedding day!! 🙂
