Nancy & Courtney

It’s that point in the winter when I need to believe that it will be green and colorful outside once again. Hence, the therapeutic blog post of a fall wedding we absolutely adored.

// After having coffee with Nancy and Courtney and hearing about their plans for homemade beer and wine, a roasted pig, & outdoor reception, it quickly became one of the weddings Greg and I were most looking forward to in 2014. I too often meet with couples and hear about their wedding details, anticipating what I will get to photograph and underestimating how they will affect me as I get to know their story. I would be lying if I said the best part of Nancy and Courtney’s wedding was the gorgeous florals or perfect light for photography. While it was a glorious wedding to shoot with lots of handmade details and beautiful backdrops, witnessing the impact these two have made on so many lives and their selfless and radical love for each other, was truly the best part of their wedding.

Courtney is a surgeon resident at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Nancy works there as a chaplain on the burn unit. To say they have an intimate appreciation for life would be an understatement. These two have such a profound respect for humanity and this world. I was so moved by how their interactions, their words, and care were filled with admiration and service.

When two lives such as theirs join together, I’m not sure that anything could stop them from being a changing force for good in this world.
