This is the 2nd blog post of the night in my attempt to get closer to being caught up with blogging. I will likely post 2 at a time for a while! This wedding of Lyssa & Joe’s was located downtown Des Moines in the Temple for Performing Arts. Their wedding was stunningly beautiful, completely with banana leaves. She had 2 dresses and 2 hair styles. She also rented amazing jewelry from Adorn Brides (a business her brother owns, but rents out to all brides). She chose to get dressed at the Suites of 800 Locust in downtown Des Moines and honestly, I would recommend all brides get ready there! The room was adorned with floor to ceiling windows and sheer curtains, creating the perfect lighting for the soft romantic photos. Just beautiful! Lyssa & Joe, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your day. It was truly spectacular!
