Brett + Nic


While looking forward to a day filled with friends and family, Brett and Nic wanted everyone to be comfortable, casual and close to home. So finding a new venue, Baqara in Runnells, Iowa allowed them to celebrate the way they always pictured, in a gorgeous rural setting, where they could kick up their cowboy boots and be themselves.

Brett and Nic met coming back from a high school trip. Nic was incredibly outgoing and Brett was insanely shy. That didn't stop Nic, it was question after question and by the end of the ride he was showing off his vocal chops. A couple of months later, she went from thinking he was crazy to being crazy about him!

The couple wanted to incorporate as many personal touches as possible. This included superhero socks, heartfelt and humorous vows, planting a unity tree using soil from each of their parents houses and Brett's grandmother's punch bowl that had held countless drinks from weddings past. "Don’t stress about what you think other people will want you to do. Its YOUR day, not theirs! If you want to rock your superhero socks, you do it!"

The best part of the planning process for Brett and Nic was choosing their photographer and venue, which are very big decisions. Baqara accentuated Brett's style while Andrew Ferren, their photographer captured it beautifully so they'll have all their favorite moments forever.
