Josh & Kelcey’s Clear Lake Wedding

I had the pleasure of capturing Josh & Kelcey’s Iowa Wedding last weekend in Clear Lake. Even though it was a hot day, it was a great wedding! Their families were both extremely kind and made me feel right at home. And their first look was one to remember. Josh cried as soon as he saw his gorgeous bride.

 I love asking my couple’s about their proposal stories and Kelcey was kind enough to send us this! “On April Fool’s Day in 2017, we had a full day of errands to run, but Josh insisted that we squeeze in a round of min-golf at Palmer’s in Waterloo. Even though we had a busy day, I eventually gave in because I love mini-golf! Once we finished hole 4, Josh, playfully acting like he was upset because I was doing better than him, took my ball and threw it a few feet away so I would have to walk to get it. As I walked back to hole 5 I spotted another green golf ball lying in the grass. It was way shinier and cleaner than the one I was using, so obviously I wanted to use it instead. So I picked it up, and turned it over to inspect it and make sure there was nothing wrong with it, and on the back of it were the words ‘Will you marry me?’ For some reason I didn’t think anything of it, and I went to turn to Josh to ask him why anyone would leave or forget something special like that behind. But of course when I finally turned around, Josh was on his knee holding out a ring!”
