What I Love About Des Moines Weddings

The blend of urban cityscapes, architecture, and beautiful natural features makes Des Moines one of my favorite cities to shoot weddings in. As a wedding videographer, I shoot nearly half of my weddings in the Des Moines area. Whether you are going for a style that's more modern/urban or earthy/natural or somewhere in between, the options are endless in Des Moines.

Romantics at the Sculpture Park

Bailey and Alex's wedding featured several historic locations and also included modern venues for a truly beautiful day.
As you will see in their Highlight Film, they chose to have their First Look in front of the Judicial Branch Building and later went to the Capitol Building with their bridal party.

I love the use of the Judicial Branch Building and the State Capitol Building as they both bring a real elegant and luxurious vibe and the areas are typically not very busy, which allows for more intimate shots.

Their Reception took place at Bash, which is located downtown directly across from the Sculpture Park. Bash has a clean, modern vibe and the interior aesthetics allow for beautiful shots especially during the first dance. With it being so close to the Sculpture Park, it makes it convenient for some quick unique shots at the Sculpture Park.

Kaitlin & Drew | Reception Venue: The Scottish Rite Consistory

The "Golden Orb" 

Kaitlin and Drew sprinkled in the flavor of the 1920's with a Great Gatsby themed wedding. Their First Look took place in an earthy forest and then they took it to the city for a Reception at the Scottish Rite Consistory in downtown Des Moines.

I love the architectural features of the Scottish Rite, especially when enhanced with a strong theme like Kaitlin and Drew had at their wedding. (Decor by Vintage Love Rentals)

There is also great variety of urban backdrops just steps away from the Scottish Rite Consistory including what I call the "Golden Orb."
