Jennifer & David’s Des Moines Wedding

One of the most iconic places in Des Moines is The Younkers Tea Room. This was the first time I’ve had the chance to photograph a Tea Room wedding reception, and I was amazed by how much character there was in this space. Jennifer & David’s wedding was astonishing. Their officiant was one of the best I’ve ever witnessed. Instead of a typical sermon, he actually took the time to give a full monologue of their entire relationship. Their love story was the absolute sweetest. What a perfect day, with an amazing couple. If you haven’t seen their engagement photos yet, head over and check those out next! 

Jennifer & David, it was so nice to work with the two of you again and to capture your big day! I wish you and your families the best.
