Last weekend I traveled to Algona, Iowa for the wedding of fellow photographer Bradley Jensen and his beautiful bride Erika. It was my first time in Iowa and it really does have a lot of corn! Algona is about 145 miles outside of Des Moines so the drive from the airport really felt like country with miles and miles of corn fields and farms. It was beautiful in an American type of way. I stopped to take a few photos of this storm that was coming in over the fields and it took less than 2 minutes for a police officer to pull off the road to see if I was ok. I thought that was pretty nice. Maybe it was the 8 month belly that had him concerned.

Congratulations Bradley and Erika!

My Husband is a True Notre Dame fan!

That’s only the beginning. His dad and both brothers are just as loyal. We all went (including wives) to the first game of the season which happened to be against Georgia Tech. I had no idea how strange it would feel to be cheering for the visitors team when it’s in your own hometown. We were the minority for sure! It was my first experience at a college football game and I certainly learned a lot.
1. It stinks, really bad. It was an awful mixture of humidity, sweat, alcohol, gas, hotdogs and more gas. I’m serious. It was like a stinky men’s locker room.
2. It’s easier to watch it on the TV.
3. Everyone stands up the enitire time, unless there is a timeout.
4. Painting your husbands head like a helmet will bring lots of people to you asking to take their picture with him. Most of them were interesting people themselves.

I’m really glad that my sister in laws went too, we had a great time despite my ankles swelling up so bad that if you pushed on them, it left a dent. My husband wanted to paint my belly gold with a big ND on it, we would have been quite the pair. It was really entertaining just people watching. Being in college is certainly a time unlike any other. Good fun.
Oh ya, and Notre Dame won so my husband was extra happy

Madison loved the idea, until it dried and then spent the evening picking it off.

Another true green fan…giving my husband props for his head.

Congratulations Christine and Elmer!

Last week’s wedding had the best solo dance by the bride I have ever seen. I wish I had a video to record it! Christine ruled the dance floor to M.C Hammer’s “Hammer Time” I think she taught him the dance because she nailed it to perfection. Everyone was cracking up!

Here’s your slideshow!

Best Wishes to you both!
