South Dakota Blue Haven Barn Wedding | Joni + Adam

August 13th, what a perfect day. Two of the kindest people I have ever met said "I do" and it was truly a joy to capture their wedding day.

Joni & Adam welcomed loved ones to the Blue Haven Barn in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where the couple's elegant, yet laid back style took center stage.  It was the perfect harmony of industrial barn details, fine vintage touches and oh so many flowers! The barn was filled with long tables topped with lush garland and brightly colored roses. And the plates...did you see the porcelain plates? Each one beautifully painted with unique vintage scenes. (I could have photographed flowers and plates all day!)

But the best part of Joni & Adam's wedding was the genuine love felt throughout. Every detail was heartfelt from the the locket Adam gave Joni during their first look to the slideshow that brought guests to tears. Tugging at everyone's heartstrings were the special details that were in memory of both of their mothers, specifically Joni's mom's flamingo flair and Adam's mother's famous baked beans. It was those sincere details that truly made this day special. 

Joni & Adam, you made for a stunning bride and groom! Thank you for the honor of documenting your first day as husband and wife. I can't wait to see what life has in store for you. 

Much love and appreciation A.JO.
