Mr. & Mrs. Spaeth // The Boathouse // Crete, Nebraska

“What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life–to strengthen each other in all labour, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting?” – George Elliot

Cole + Erika promised forever out on an island in Crete, Nebraska as the sun broke through for a small glimpse on a fall November day in front of their closest friends and dearest family.  Erika and her bridesmaids and family decorated the Boathouse into a magical, ruby, boho day. All of our hearts were warmed by genuine, beautiful time together and it was a day that just still seems so magical still. 

Cole + Erika have a deep love for one another and this day was a start of a beautiful next chapter in their lives with one another.  As a symbol of their love they locked their “hearts” together during the ceremony and threw the key into the lake. Later on in the evening they set off lanterns into the sky as well which reflected on the lake. I’m so thankful I got to capture a part of the magic. 


Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. Spaeth and their new journey in life with one another. 

Love, Deana
