Catlin and Ryan married in September surrounded by close family and friends. Their intimate day started by getting ready at Hotel Fort Des Moines where the girls got ready in a gorgeous space filled with natural light. We started the morning by creating these beautiful images of their details and had brilliant pops of color from their boutonnières. After Ryan arrived, we did a first look out on the sidewalk in front of the historic hotel with the gorgeous architecture as the backdrop. Emotions were high for this long awaited moment for these two. We then had so much fun exploring all of the hidden spots at Hotel Fort Des Moines. The staircase, ballroom, lobby and speak easy offer endless spots for portraits.
Their ceremony was held at The Rose Garden behind the Des Moines Art Center on historic Grand Avenue. It is a perfect venue for a small wedding. After dating for many years this was the moment they had waited for. It was a very special ceremony and finally they were married! Their reception venue, The Reinhardt Room is a perfect blend of all the right elements, historic, glamorous and chic. Honey and Joy did a great job with the vintage furniture and stunning table scapes which set the tone for their celebration. Ryan and Catlin had a most incredible day and we were honored to be a part of it
