        Emily and Jake are one of the most beautiful couples to get married in 2019, so it’s not shocking that their wedding day was also simply stunning. Emily’s vision was a chic, elegant, romantic farmhouse feel with loose flower arrangements and greenery surrounded by candles. The gorgeous details were brought to life with help from their wedding planner, Bright DeSigns, and all the other amazing vendors from all over the Midwest that were involved! Emily comes from a big Italian family, so her, Jake and 250 of their guests enjoyed a family style Italian dinner and wine in the fabulous Celebration Farm. The couple says they both loved “how much fun everyone had. It was a WILD party and everyone seemed to have a blast celebrating with us!” The ceremony was held at All Saint’s Catholic Church in Cedar Rapids. It was special to the couple, because Jake recently converted to Catholicism. The couple memorized their vows to each other, and say that reciting those vows to each other was one of their favorite moments of the day!

        Some advice that the couple has for future couples planning a wedding is “start early! The little things that you think are big stressors really aren’t in reality. I was freaking out over the littlest details, and it wasn’t necessary. If it doesn’t affect you and your future spouse directly, then don’t sweat it and let someone else handle it!” Emily also added, “it’s crazy thinking back how fast that night went, but it was all so amazing and spectacular!”

        As for their photography experience, the couple said “[working with Stephanie was] amazing! She is easy and so comfortable to work with. She is confident and made us feel that way as well. She has great ideas and is also very direct which I like. I would recommend her to anyone!”

        Emily and Jake are currently in a long distance marriage, as Emily is in the Air Force stationed in Phoenix while Jake is finishing up physical therapy school in the Midwest – so the thing they’re most looking forward to as a married couple is being together again when he graduates!
