A beautiful early spring day for a greater Des Moines botanical garden wedding

After nearly ten years together, Alissa and Nick are MARRIED! Getting to meet and spend the day with these two was a true joy, and watching them just melt in each others arms and give each other a look with sparkling eyes just really topped off the whole experience.

Due to them currently living in Boston, we only met over zoom before this last week. Both shared small concerns of being in front of the camera, but I am so grateful to prove once again that once you focus on each other, you forget those concerns and it’s always a great outcome. These photos are WONDERFUL and show their love for each other, and then of course the best emotions from their family and friends around them.

As Alissa walked toward her groom during their evening ceremony, the conservatory echoed by a lovely display of orchestra music. They vowed their lives together in front of their closest friends and family, from all over the country!

After the ceremony and some gorgeous sunset portraits, they were cheered into the reception hall where they received advice or stories from EVERY grandparent, were graced with the sweetest speeches, and the dance floor was on fire the whole time!
It was a joy to see all their plans come together so well and to witness them soaking in every second together.

Congratulations Alissa and Nick! I’m so honored to have been a part of your sweet day!
