Fall Equinox

Happy First Day of Fall! It is cold and rainy here, but that is ok. Although that is the reason I don't have a fresh fall photo! I didn't notice fall until yesterday when I was driving along Highway 10 to Osseo. I think that was the only road I was on all day where the fall colors were verging on brilliant. Hopefully I will find some more!

Amanda + Chris's Stonehaven Barn Wedding :: Des Moines, Iowa Wedding Photography (Part 2)

Amanda and Chris had so many lovely little details at their rustic and vintage wedding at Stonehaven Barn, that I couldn't exclude any of them! They put a lot of planning into their wedding, and I loved seeing their ideas and hard work come to fruition. They scoured antique stores for furniture for the decor.... a vintage suitcase to hold cards, oil lamps for the tables, as well as chairs and pictures for the buffet area. They had tons of cute DIY details too... sayings on the table, a banner, and mason jar votives, Every detail was exceptionally planned and placed. You can tell that a lot of love went into this wedding :)

 Antique drawers held treats and sweets!

 Photo Booth!

 Best first dance EVER!! Amanda and Chris did a chreographed dance to Dirty Dancing's Time of my Life! It was so cute.... and so Amanda :)  I think she has loved this movie since we were like tots.

If you missed Part 1 of the wedding of Amanda and Chris.... Here it is!

Amanda + Chris's Stonehaven Barn Wedding :: Des Moines, Iowa Wedding Photography (Part 1)

Amanda and Chris's wedding was nothing short of perfect. They were in love, they looked beautiful, and every wedding detail was in place and fit "just-so" into the setting. Amanda and Chris (who you may remember from their super-cute engagement session) got married and held their reception at Stonehaven Barn in De Soto, Iowa, just outside of Des Moines. The setting was stunning, and with the occasional showers through the day, the setting was just glowing... as were the bride and groom :)

It was an honor to be able to photograph Amanda and Chris's wedding and to be at their ceremony. I can't imagine a more perfect day, setting or wedding for the two of them :)

Here is the first of two posts from Amanda and Chris's wedding. They had so many rustic and vintage details and great moments, I couldn't fit them all into one post!

Amanda and Chris had their intimate family wedding ceremony out at Stonehaven too. The rain stopped and everyone found seats around the fire ring. Dawson, the ring bearer, was very careful to keep the rings dry as he led the way and started the ceremony:) They wrote the most heartfelt vows... you could really feel the love and the joy in their ceremony. It was beautiful :)

Here is a link to Part 2 of Chris and Amanda's Iowa barn wedding!  Lots of details, lots of love :)
