Carley & Rob ~ Quad Cities Wedding

Carley and Rob‘s wedding this past Sunday was nothing short of fantastic. Everything about the day was carefully planned in more ways than one, starting with the little important things: the shoes, the rings and the bridal bouquet.

With her grandmother’s cameo nestled between the layers of fabric, Carley put on her dress with ease and some help from her sisters and friends.

The couple – who live in Florida – opted to see each other prior to the ceremony. Their First Look was in the foyer outside a small santuary of the church.

Even though the First Look is an intimate moment for a couple, it is still “scheduled” into the day. After the first few moments – admist a few cameras in the vicinity – Rob took it all in and relaxed.

Soon after formals it was time for the ceremony. A proud dad, giving away the last of his three daughters, made the walk down the aisle. And for the record, Carley gets my award for Most Expressive Bride. That smile, as she walked up the aisle with Rob, never left her face.

It was then off to the Davenport Country Club for the reception. On the drive there, a kiosk read the current temperature: 90 degrees. So Carley, Rob, the bridal party and I headed out in a team of golf carts for photos – for as long as we could bear the heat and without too much interruption (I hope) to the nearby golfers.

Kudos to Carley and Rob for braving the heat as we made a couple more stops for photos after the bridal party left, and for toting me around at the back of their golf cart.

While I was with them, my assistant Linda was inside taking in the details of the reception:

After introductions  the newlyweds headed to their cake, a wonderful piece of deliciousness created by Sweet Perfections and with details photographed by Linda.

And Rob couldn’t wait to eat, as he fed himself a bite of the cake before feeding Carley!

Finally, it was time for their First Dance.

It was a privilege to be part of such a beautiful day. Congratulations, Carley and Rob! Enjoy your honeymoon in NYC, and all the best to you both!
