Kelsey & Matt celebrated in Downtown Des Moines, Iowa. The Downtown Marriott hosted their event, and we had SO much fun! Kelsey & Matt are one of those couples, that after you meet them, you’re like… dang… I wish we were friends!

Serious! You know those kinds of people? The ones that are out doing things, enjoying life, adventuring together. These two nailed it.

After Kelsey called me we later found out that we had mutual friends. Needless to say, I was pumped! The chances of us becoming ACTUAL friends was getting closer and closer.

But, I guess I wasn’t the only who could feel this amazing couples energy! We had a WEDDING CRASHER during their dance.

I mean, I don’t blame them!

Emily & Rob Des Moines, Iowa Wedding

There is something about a downtown wedding. No matter which city you happen to find yourself. Downtown has a charm of its own. 

I do love this event. I hope you love it too!

Emily & Rob were married in Des Moines, Iowa this September. They both lived out in Colorado prior to their move back to Iowa. And so of course we had tons to talk about immediately. Emily was one of the most organized, goal-minded brides I have ever had. She knew what she wanted, and got it done. I loved working with her!  Any wedding planner who gets the pleasure of working with a "kindred-spirit" does not take it for granted.  Her taste is exquisite and I am so exited to share some of the images from their beautiful wedding day.
