Intimate Irish Wedding in Waterloo | with Chelsea Higgins

This week we're showing off an intimate Iowa wedding with Chelsea Higgins from Chelsea Dawn Weddings. We love the colors, the vibes, and the richness that these portraits exude. They wed on St. Patrick's day at Waterloo venue the Brown Bottle. We're not only obsessed with gorgeous bride Cat Potter, we're obsessed with her connection to husband Ben and how perfectly Chelsea showcases their day.

Cat & Ben met while chasing their MBA’s. Cat asked Ben for some help in an accounting class - and the rest was history!

Their St. Patrick’s Day wedding was a super intimate occasion - with only immediate family present as they expressed their love through their vows. They married in a beautiful & cozy room inside the Brown Bottle restaurant in Waterloo (which makes some of the best Italian food in the area!)

They gave slight nods to St. Patrick’s day with little touches of green here and there. Cat & Ben were a dream to work with - you could feel the love as soon as you walked into the room!

Chelsea photographed her first wedding in 2012 - and has been evolving and growing both her business and artistry ever since.  Her style is focused on natural environments, organic moments, and film-inspired editing techniques. When she is not photographing down-to-earth couples, she can be found chasing her littles around the park, writing witty captions for the bogus stuff that comes out of their tiny mouths, or traveling to and from Colorado/Iowa to hang with her family.
