On a warm summer evening at the edge of the Des Moines river, a delightful couple exchanged personal vows that included house rules for Settlers of Catan and promises of forever. When I met Angela, we clicked right away as we discussed the plans of their big day; having so much in common, I could totally picture the vintage-glam family affair with shades of gold and cream she described and was hopeful they'd book me. I was elated when I heard back the following day and we set up time for their engagement shoot. Their engagement shoot was my first chance to meet Gordon, and watching this adorable couple interact, it was obvious that he would marry her at the courthouse in a snowstorm - he was eager to start their life together as husband and wife. They spent their big day celebrating with loved ones, partying until dark when we snuck away for a few fun photos, inspired by some of Angela's favorite photos! Thank you Angela and Gordon for inviting me into your amazing day! Enjoy some of the highlights below!
