A Stunning Gold & Black Tented Wedding Angela & Mitch | Sully, IA

Angela & Mitch hosted their closest friends and family for a truly stunning wedding held under a beautifully decorated tent in late September.  Angela worked closely with Cynthia from Vintage Love Rentals in Des Moines to plan her dream wedding, and it was everything she had ever imagined!  From the elegant farmhouse tables draped in greenery and lit with candles, to the statement floral wall for the cake and vintage furniture pieces, it was all so incredible!

We started the day at Van Wijk Winery in Sully for final preparations…

The perfect spot for a few glamorous and elegant portraits.


It was a chilly fall day, but at least it was sunny!   We’ve had a pretty bad run of Saturday weather for weddings this fall, but we had a GORGEOUS sunny day for Angela & Mitch’s wedding!  I love this one!

Angela’s nieces were the most adorable flower girl grouping!

Stunning florals provided by Thistles in Pella – I love how each bouquet was unique and personalized for each bridesmaid.

Check out that stunning bout!!!!

Angela’s gorgeous hairstyle was incredibly unique and suited her perfectly.

Off to the ceremony!

Guests arrived in a stunning open-air greenhouse where the guestbook and fingerprint sign greeted them.

This little girl was a big fan of the camera!

Their ceremony was heartfelt and so meaningful.

After walking down the aisle, guests entered into this BEAUTIFUL tent, careful decorated and executed by Cynthia’s team at Vintage Love Rentals.  It was gorgeous!  So many little details.

This cake set up!!!

And the sweetheart table…!!!! So beautiful!

Farmhouse tables draped in greenery with classic gold and black accents – it was the perfect reception style.

The bar area was bustling the entire night!

Angela made personalized chargers for her bridal party.

This cake was SO tasty!

We stepped outside the tent for a few quick evening portraits – these are some of my favorites!

Cynthia and her team transformed the ceremony stage into a dance floor, complete with this beautiful arch!  And of course, a lovely seating area for guests to stay cozy during the festivities.

What better way to end a magical day than with a sparkler send off!  Congrats to the newlyweds!
