She was a tomboy who loved the game of baseball. He, a handsome man with a boyish grin and bright blue eyes. Their paths had collided years earlier, and Kaytie was smitten with his small town charm. They would see eachother periodically, and she admired him from a distance on several occasions.
They would meet again and the slow learner he is, finally saw her for the woman she was. It was soon realized theirs was a love destined to be forever.
It is on this day they unite themselves in front of family and friends surrounded by love. Though they are both from southern Minnesota, they chose a location just across the border at the beautiful Hosmer Park in Iowa to tie the knot.
Kaytie and Mason’s ceremonony was set atop the gorgeous Mount Hosmer Park in Lansing, Iowa. Mt. Hosmer is set high atop a hill and the bus carrying the wedding party was too big to navigate the narrow and winding hill leading the way. Luckily I drive a large SUV and they were able to make a few trips to get the bride, her groom, and their wedding party to the ceremony.And of course, what’s an outdoor Minnesota wedding without a few raindrops (well, it was a complete downpour to be honest!) Even the photographer gave up her umbrella so the groomsmen could escort the guests to the very small shelter, aka new impromptu ceremony site, and out of the rain.
Oh what’s that you say? The ceremony is done and it’s stopped raining! I’ve heard a little rain on your wedding day is good luck. They should buy a lottery ticket.Kaytie, a who played softball as a school age girl, wanted to run the bases in her wedding dress. What a gorgeous tomboy!
Thank you to Michael Hamerlind for allowing me to assist him in photographing this beautiful wedding. I was truly honored.
