When I first met with Ellie & Matt and they told me that they were getting married in Iowa I was super excited! They had planned to do their ceremony and reception in Iowa, and then have another reception here in San Antonio. So we talked details and logistics, and in the end they booked us for both days so that all their images would be seamless!
We flew out to Des Moines a few days early to make sure we were all settled and ready for the big day. We wandered around Des Moines (SUPER cute area), got pedicures, ate at a few local eateries, window shopped, etc. and then by the time the big day came around I was fairly acquainted with where we wanted to do photos.
Ellie & Matt had a first look in the park right by the capital! It was super sweet and allowed us to get some fun portraits of them around town afterwards. We wandered all over, in front of the capital, in the park, throughout quaint downtown, and then headed back towards the ceremony.
Their ceremony was in literally a black box, which made photographing it a little tricky, but it was a super sweet ceremony and after wards, Ellie, Matt, and I piled into our minivan rental car and got some more sunset photos. Their Iowa reception was super true to who they are as a couple. They mingled with friends and family and enjoyed newly wed bliss.
For their San Antonio reception, we actually spent an hour beforehand wandering around downtown San Antonio and along the riverwalk and then headed into their reception for a few hours.
Their big day(s) were super unique and such a fun way to celebrate with everyone they love! Congratulations Ellie & Matt, and thank you for inviting us along for the journey!
