Elle & Adam

Elle and Adam’s wedding was a truly romantic occasion. Having spent much of their engagement apart (Adam was in the service), there was a lot of emotional buildup from both the couple and their families. The design of the wedding was modern and dramatically romantic in black and white with red accents. The couple’s vibe was contagious and magic happened when Elle and Adam looked into one anothers eyes. Their sunset ceremony unfolded beautifully at the Des Moines Rose Garden in Greenwood Park (Des Moines, IA) with reception following at the Embassy Suites on the River.

Elle is sassy and her strong sense of style was apparent in everything from the programs to the reception centerpieces. She even had her dress custom designed. Many of our favorite images from the day (below) emphasize her & Adam’s style and a few of the details from the day. Enjoy!

    My favorite is definitely the shot of the ceremony. As a side note, even though the people are blurred, is that Ali in the bottom corner of that picture? That’s what I think.ReplyCancel
