Jay & Holly (married)

We’ve had the privilege of getting to know Jay’s family over the past few years so we were extra excited when Jay and Holly got engaged and wanted us to be their photographers! Their December wedding ceremony took place in the chapel at Hope Lutheran Church in West Des Moines. Thanks to the extremely mild winter this year we were able to photograph most of their portraits outside. Holly’s Ivory dress with fur coat and Jay’s tan suit looked stunning against the golden browns of winter trees at sunset. It was a treat to witness their joy.

Their reception took place at the Foxboro in Johnston. It was immaculately decorated by Jay’s parents Sheri & Stan, two wonderful people that have the gift of touching the lives of everyone they come in contact with. They sprinkled the ceiling with snowflakes and filled the room with Christmas trees, lights and decorations that transformed the room into a winter wonderland. It was the perfect end to a wonderful wedding day.

You’d never be able to tell is was under 30 degrees F with the warmth in her genuine smile (opposed to chattering teeth). To see more of Holly & Jay’s “Christmas in NY” themed wedding, click here!
