Mulberry Street Tavern Engagement Session

Mulberry Street Tavern & Capitol Engagement Photo Session in Des Moines

When Kristin & Brock and I first started talking about their engagement session, she said she wanted a little bit swanky, chic, with some city vibes. We planned outfits and locations over a quick Zoom call, coming up with a few different options, but they knew from the beginning they wanted to do photos at Mulberry Street Tavern in Des Moines. This stylish bar is one of my favorite spots and was 100% the look we were going for.

Classic white wedding at the Monroe in Des Moines

Classic White Wedding at The Monroe in Des Moines

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.

willow on grand New Year's Eve wedding in Des Moines

Willow on Grand New Year’s Eve Wedding

Classic, chic, timeless. A little bit formal, but an incredible celebration. If I could describe the majority of our couples and weddings at Jennifer Weinman Photography, it would be that way. And Shelby and Jack’s Willow on Grand New Year’s Eve wedding was exactly that. Everything was perfectly planned, and the day was an incredible rush of jitters, joy, and cutting loose. It was also an amazing way to close down the 2022 wedding season – we loved it!

Shelby and Jack chose to get ready and have their wedding reception at Willow on Grand in Des Moines. Willow on Grand is a brand new venue in Des Moines that is elegant yet modern, with just the right amount of special touches, yet with enough options to make your wedding unique. We love the clean crisp whites mixed with the more modern blacks, along with the perfect reception chairs (seriously, ever venue take note — stylish chairs make a difference!)

des moines heritage center fall wedding

Gracie & Tom’s Fall Des Moines Heritage Center Wedding

Imagine this for your wedding day: you’ve planned a beautiful celebration with the love of your life, gorgeous florals are in place, the weather is perfect, your makeup is finished, and you’re ready for your mother to help you put on your wedding gown. Your photographer arrives to begin the day with photographing a few of your personal details and then, your worst nightmare happens: all of those details, including the heirloom family bible, your fun wedding shoes, and BOTH sets of wedding bands are gone. Gone gone. They are nowhere to be found. Not in the car, the venue, the hotel room…this was how Gracie & Tom’s wedding day started when I first arrived at the Des Moines Heritage Center on a late fall morning. All of the joy and anticipation of their day was taken over by a sudden vacuum of emotions. Their most treasured and personal parts of their wedding day had literally been stolen from them

fall wedding at Jasper Winery in Des Moines

Carly & Nate Fall Wedding | Jasper Winery

Carly and Nate got married on a beautiful fall day in Des Moines Iowa. We think you will agree that Jasper Winery was a great choice for the venue as you take a look through the images of their day. The outdoor ceremony space is beautiful with the white chairs and a backdrop of tall grasses and the vineyard. They enjoyed perfect weather and were able to have their reception and dinner indoors and they held their dance party outside under the tent with the most romantic lighting.

This couple loves to have fun and their dance party did not disappoint. There were so many hilarious yet special moments throughout their day that they will remember forever. Their first look was so sweet and Carly was stunning in her lace gown from Grace Loves Lace. The ceremony The vineyard and grounds at Jasper Winery left us with no shortage of beautiful images and scenery from their day. We wish them all the best for their future together!
