Des Moines Iowa holds many wonderful spaces to create a unique styled wedding shoot. That is exactly what photographer Megan Taylor thought about when she started planning for this beautiful look, which would come alive in a restored building in downtown Des Moines Iowa called The Studio at One Source

All the beautiful elements were brought together by a local wedding planner, Karla Lewenczuk,with varying tones and textures that married so well with the brick and metal that was in the space.

Drift Salvage Decor from Des moines Iowa, offered up a beautiful vintage-look wooden table for the bride and groom to relax at, while a beautiful two tier cake with a marble motif stands out from a garland of lush greenery from Lavender Blue. The cake , from Creme Cupcake was very special and unique, with succulents atop and a blue-grey color that fit in perfectly with the palette of the day.
