Oh my goodness can we just talk about what a perfect wedding venue the Salisbury House and Gardens is here in Des Moines?! Tanner and I finally photographed our first wedding there in 9 wedding seasons a few weekends ago. What a PERFECT garden wedding venue. And so much greenery, I can’t say enough great things about it. A photographers dream!
Annie and Lance are just perfect together. They truly care so much about each other and compliment each other so incredibly well!
The day started with an epic bridal gift to Annie. Lance had made her a custom made box full of all her favorite things. Art supplies and so many thoughtful little gifts, how sweet is that!
Sadly we battled the rain all day BUT we managed to pop outside between the thunderstorms multiple times for photos and made it work.
I must say the foggy/rainy day made for some truly dramatic lighting!
It did sadly start misting during the ceremony but it was just so perfect I don’t think anyone even noticed!
Post ceremony they gave us endless time to explore around the Salisbury House and Gardens area for photos. What a perfect venue!
Due to the rain the dinner got moved inside, but thankfully they have such a fun room for the dinner. It was a joy to have a new venue to photograph in with such character!
Post dinner we were able to head outside for the dance. The rain had finally passed and what a sunset. That perfect September light for a cobblestone first dance made the best backdrop!
Thanks so much for having Tanner and I photograph your big day. You two are just the sweetest couple! And we hope you get your corgi puppy soon Annie, life is so much better with a fur child! (:
