Weddings crashers are real!

Seriously, have you guys ever experienced them? Maybe not like Vince Vaughn, but real wedding crashers? In our 10 years, we have had 2 scenarios. ..that we know of!

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.

Kelsey & Matt were married in August at Capitol Hill Lutheran Church in Des Moines. The reception was held at Downtown Marriott.

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!

Madelyn & Dane Urbandale, Iowa

It is always such a pleasure to reveal my beautiful couples to you all... and each and every one of them holds a special place in my heart. They are all so unique, and along the planning process I am so blessed to get to know them just a little bit.

This January, I had the absolute pleasure to plan Madelyn & Dane's wedding. And when I say absolute pleasure, it is entirely understated! The first time I met Madelyn & Dane they were just dating. Madelyn loves people and this radiates off of her and lightens up an entire room. And then Dane enters with this solid, genuine, security. His love for the Lord not only brings stability to a room. It almost calms you.

Now besides both of their genuine love for our Lord, they are two of the silliest - care-free persons I have ever met. I cannot begin to describe just how blessed I have been to be a glimse in their special day.

My heart is happy. And I just so excited to see where God takes them both. 

 

Blessings to you sweet couple.
