Des Moines Wedding Photographer | Nick & Tessa are married!

Last Saturday was my birthday and I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful wedding to shoot on my birthday!  I turned 25 (don’t worry, I celebrated with my family the night before) and had the pleasure of shooting Nick & Tessa’s wedding.  It was just amazing.  Breathtaking really.  Her wedding has been one I have really been looking forward to because she has kept me in the loop about all of her details.  She really went ALL out on them.  Totally vintage/shabby chic all the way.  Even her mom’s house that she got ready at matched her theme!  It was all just gorgeous.  Of course she and her now hubby are gorgeous too.

If you ever wonder what Iowa looks like, this is it.  All I have to do is drive an hour out of my way and this is the beautiful scenery I find.  I think the rolling hills are beautiful!  They had their reception at Nick’s parents house which happened to be located right in the middle of said hills.  See for yourself.  The weather, scenery, details and couple were beautiful.  Happy birthday to me!! 🙂  Oh, and they also gave me a birthday gift as if their wedding wasn’t gift enough.  Thank you so much Nick & Tessa for letting me be a part of your beautiful day and for being so wonderful! 🙂
