Dowd Wedding | Rollins Manion Wedding Des Moines, Iowa | Iowa Wedding Photographers

Sarah and Danny had a beautiful wedding day at the Rollins Mansion here in Des Moines.


If you haven’t been it’s the perfect vintage mansion venue for an outdoor garden wedding.

The day started off with the gals getting ready in East Village at the wonderful Salon Spa W.

From there they headed to the Rollions Mansion to finish getting ready, setup some details for the day and relax.

The niece of the bride and groom was so adorable all day!

She made an extra effort to pose for us and can I say how incredibly impressed I was that she knew every word to each Moana song on her iPad while getting ready. Impressive!

Sarah and Danny wanted their first look to be on the mansion steps and what a perfect location for the first look on your big day!

The weather truly cooperated with sun and humidity, you just never know this time of year it’s either amazing or incredibly hot in Iowa.

We did several photos in the garden area with family and bridal party pre and post ceremony.

All their friends and family gathered in the garden area while Danny’s sister sang for a beautiful short ceremony.

Post ceremony we took the couple to the back of the mansion for a quick portrait session and what a fun place for cocktail hour for the guests to wander around!

The rain held off long enough to eat outside and cut the cake and then we headed indoors for dancing!

Thank you Sarah and Danny for having us and the incredibly thoughtful handwritten thank you note at the end of the night!

Hope your honeymoon was amazing the last few days in Mexico and can’t wait to share your wedding photos with you upon your return!
