I couldn’t have been more excited when I received an email from Emily asking if I would shoot her wedding. I’ve known Emily and her family for several years, her sister Alison and I worked on the photo desk at the Iowa State Daily & Ethos magazine together and she photographed t my brother’s wedding last November in Wisconsin. Her photos turned out beautifully, so I was happy to return the favor for their family!
The wedding itself was beautiful with the ceremony being held at St. Ambrose Cathedral in downtown Des Moines. After the ceremony the guests all met in the lobby of the Marriott and proceeded to have a Second Line parade through the street of downtown en route to the Temple of Performing Arts where their reception was held. The party was incredible, it was a great way to end the wedding season, looking forward to next year already! I’ll be posting more weddings from this year now that my time has freed up a bit, so stay tuned.
