Jeni & Craig

Jeni and Craig have a great style that made their wedding at the Botanical Center in Des Moines incredibly unique. For starters, the couple’s attire was classic. Jeni’s dress, hair and jewelry emanated retro charm and the grey suits worn by Craig and his groomsmen were a perfect compliment. Their non-traditional ceremony lasted only a few minutes and revolved mainly around their heart-felt vows. Their reception immediately followed in a back room at the Botanical Center. Jeni and Craig’s Ring Bearer made for several memorable moments caught on camera (see below). Also, it’s safe to say that Craig has the sweetest beard we’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing! We’re glad we got to be a part of this awesome couple’s day and invite you to enjoy a few of our favorite images from their wedding:

Elle & Adam

Elle and Adam's wedding was a truly romantic occasion. Having spent much of their engagement apart (Adam was in the service), there was a lot of emotional buildup from both the couple and their families. The design of the wedding was modern and dramatically romantic in black and white with red accents. The couple's vibe was contagious and magic happened when Elle and Adam looked into one anothers eyes. Their sunset ceremony unfolded beautifully at the Des Moines Rose Garden in Greenwood Park (Des Moines, IA) with reception following at the Embassy Suites on the River. Elle is sassy and her strong sense of style was apparent in everything from the programs to the reception centerpieces. She even had her dress custom designed. Many of our favorite images from the day (below) emphasize her & Adam's style and a few of the details from the day. Enjoy!
