A Modern Woodmen Park Wedding in Davenport, Iowa
When couples reach out about me capturing their wedding day, I always like to start with getting to know them and their story. Maggie told me all about how they met, what they like to do together and what they were most looking forward to at their wedding at The Modern Woodmen Park. But what really stuck with me was how Ryan proposed to Maggie.
And while I could summarize what she said, I think Maggie’s own words do it best:
“I was at a winery with my girlfriends and when I came home he had rose petals, candles, and pictures of us making a little aisle, and he was standing at the end of it. We enjoyed the moment and he told me we had dinner reservations, but were going to stop by his sister’s house for a celebratory glass of champagne before. He had convinced me that my parents and sisters both knew he was doing it, but that I should wait until after dinner to call. When we got to his sister’s house, both of our entire families (from Burlington, Chicago, and Michigan) were there to surprise me. After a couple hours of celebrating, they said we were going to head to a brewery. When we got there, all of our friends from in and out of town were there for the final surprise. I was completely blown away, and overwhelmed with love. It was the best day…. so far ;)”
I knew Maggie and Ryan were both very family orientated but I was still in awe that so many people who loved them both would come from near and far to celebrate them. But after getting to witness them say, “I do” on Friday, it isn’t so shocking. The love they have for each other knows no bounds. They have a once in a lifetime kind of love that pours over to the people around them.
Maggie and Ryan, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for trusting me to document and preserve the next chapter in your epic love story. Your day was as perfect as Ryan’s proposal and I was honored to be even a small part of it. Thank you again. I love you both and can’t wait to see what the future has in store for you as Mr and Mrs Brueck!!!
