Country Lane Lodge in Adel Iowa was the perfect setting for our classic wedding style with some “Rustic Chic”vibes . Lavender Blue Floral partnered with other local vendors to create a fantastic set of images with photographer Kendra Plathe, from KMP photography in Des Moines.

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.
