landlocked bride® | midwest + mountain west wedding inspiration

plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

Amelia Lyon recently shared this wedding on her blog, and the story of the couple.  Due to the bride’s father falling ill, the couple decided to wed in 6 weeks to make sure he would be well enough for the wedding day. I couldn’t help but to well up when I saw these sweet shots.
