Maddie & Jerry | Jasper Winery Wedding | Des Moines Wedding Photographer

**Note – I know I said I was going to separate out my weddings from everything else, but I’ve decided I’m still going to blog them here.  If you want to know more about wedding photography that I offer, please go here!

Maddie & Jerry had the most gorgeous wedding out at Jasper Winery, and I was so blessed to shoot alongside my friend Allison once again and help capture this joyous day.  We started out at the Embassy Suites in Des Moines, where Maddie got ready with her bridesmaids.  I love the modern vibe of the bed in contrast to her very classic bridal accessories!

Since their wedding and reception was at a winery, we had to do some ring shots with the cork!

Jerry got ready with the guys and shared one last toast.

My view of their first look, all the way across the balcony.  You can see Allison’s view here.

A little lovin’ on the way down in the elevator 🙂

It was a very windy day, but I loved how it caught Maddie’s veil – so pretty!

Over at Jasper Winery, we snagged a few more couple’s photos near the grapes.

This is probably one of my favorite groomsmen’s shots from this summer — I love all the genuine smiles!

And this is what happens when you give the groomsmen your camera!

Thank you Maddie for being willing to get down on the grass – I love this shot of you two!

A sweet moment between Maddie and Allison 🙂  It’s not every day the photographer is in the shot!

All of the beautiful reception and ceremony details were put together by Innovativ Events.  They did a phenomenal job!

Maddie & Jerry planted a tree to symbolize the start of their new life together.

If I could convince every couple to take 10 minutes right around sunset, I would be the happiest person on earth.  I’m SO glad Maddie & Jerry did, because these next few photos are my favorites from the day.  The light was just breathtaking!

For music, they had dueling pianos from Cool 2 Duel.  I had only heard of this a couple of times from friends, but after experiencing it, I’ve gotta say it was SO fun!  I highly recommend them – they have a huge repertoire and everyone had a blast.

Congrats to Maddie & Jerry, and thanks again to Allison for allowing me to tag along and shot alongside you!
