Sydney and Kyle’s beautiful classic wedding at The Monroe in Des Moines was our first time photographing at this venue since coming under new ownership. Formerly Noah’s event venue, a new company has refreshed the space and turned it into an elegant, chic, and classy wedding space – we are in LOVE with this space!
But first, meet Sydney and Kyle, a couple whose love story began through a dating app but quickly evolved into a romance. Their first date at The Silk Elephant in Ankeny went so well, they went out the next night as well! They shared a trip to Stillwater, MN, to celebrate Sydney’s grandpa’s 80th birthday, which was a significant moment in their relationship. They took advantage of this getaway to explore new restaurants and stores, making cherished memories along the way.
This past winter, Kyle popped the question and involved their two German Shepherds in the surprise. Using a bandana-clad message on one of their pups that said, “Will you marry my dad?” Sydney gave an emotional “yes!”
Sydney reached out within days of their proposal and already had a lot of their wedding planned – she knew exactly what she wanted! Classic, timeless, and a really good time! Their wedding day was photographed by our lead associate photographer, Beth.
