Classic meets Rustic Chic
Iowa brides get a romantic wedding with some of the area’s most talented vendors…….
Weddings by Design
Our Bride wears a couture gown from Weddings By Design in West Des Moines Iowa where you can find the latest designs from the hottest dressmakers. Each of the three bridesmaids is dressed in a coordinating blush, grey, and gold design. The shape of the neck lines and bodices is each unique in it’s own way, from lace to swooping and form-fitting to flair.
About Face Beauty
Cheeks were blushed, lips were painted and eyes were accented by Nicole DeMondo, makeup artist and owner of About Face Beauty in Des Moines Iowa. Our model was the stunning Lexie Heckman , found on Instagram : @ideallylex
Bridal hair combs with rhinestones glitter and shine beneath the beautiful chandelier lighting of our bridal dressing area. Jacob Zauche, a very talented stylist from https://www.facebook.com/hairtoz/ was able to keep our bridal party coiffed and ready for their next pose!
The Tux Shop
From the Tux Shop in West Des Moines, Tuxes are in a burgundy tone with black trim and crisp white dress shirts. Bow ties are in black with black and gold cuff links, all
Little Blackbird Bakery offered up a work of art with this faux three-tiered cake. Floral from Lavender Blue was applied with pieces of eucalyptus, blush roses, and biscuit-color amaranthus.. Whitney Leighton, owner of Little Blackbird is a true joy for brides to work with and her confections all taste divine!
Lion Ribbon Company shows off their blush satin ribbon with the cake stand accent, and repeat the magic with the bridal bouquet wraps.The ribbon was great to work with, as it wraps and ties easily and has a great texture and sheen in it that is awesome for detail shots at your wedding.
Lavender Blue Floral
Lavender Blue Floral is a studio florist in Des Moines Iowa who works at creating the right style, look and feel for their brides with 100% satisfaction sought. We enjoy styling the whole “story” of our bride and her groom on the special day that will last forever in good, detailed photos. Using blooms that are beautiful but also carefully processed and designed is always where our heart lies.
‘Boys will be boys’, as they say and it is not different on the wedding day. Our groom and his friends hang out and have a beer in their special hang-out area at Country Lane Lodge. They can relax on leather sofas, watch tv, get dressed and check details in the full length mirror while sipping on a favorite beverage.
Our amazing models came together with such great attitudes on a long day of shooting and set-ups and Lavender Blue is eternally grateful. Our featured models are:
