Gorgeous Green December Wedding at the Czech and Slovak Museum in Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Generations of Love Being Represented

Love has a mysterious way of bringing people together, and for Elizabeth and Ryer, it all began in 2020 through the chance of a mutual friend. The tale of their connection unfolded at the Kickstand Pub, where fate intervened, and two hearts discovered an instant connection.

The couple chose the iconic Little Brown Church for their ceremony, which holds extreme sentimental value as the place where Elizabeth’s grandparents were married in 1947. Elizabeth and Ryer’s decision to honor her grandparents’ legacy by choosing this charming venue adds a touch of nostalgia and a timeless quality to their wedding ceremony.
