SUNNY + SIMPLE WEDDING | RYAN + KELSEY | DUBUQUE, IOWA

Filed in: Featured, weddings

On a sunny day in May, Kelsey and Ryan finally got to have the simple and elegant wedding of their dreams. After 2020 changed their big plans, these two brought their loved ones together for a perfect summer ceremony a whole year later. 

The Gingrich wedding was beautiful and no fluff, much like these two! Kelsey and Ryan met in college, both soccer players with secret crushes on each other. When Ryan got the courage to let Kelsey know his feelings, well, the rest was history. Surrounded by family and friends for a party in 2021, this couple knew just how to keep their day full of low-key fun. 

From popping bottles of champagne in the gardens to quiet solo strolls on the riverwalk, Kelsey and Ryan struck the perfect balance between rager and relaxation. The historic cathedral for the ceremony blended the delicate artistic touches and rugged charm. The rusty bricks matched the deep green accents of the bridesmaid dress and floral selections for a downright exquisite contrast. One party bus ride later down towards the Mississippi, this couple danced the night away with their nearest and dearest. 

Congratulations Kelsey and Ryan!
