Olson Wedding September 8th, 2017 | Sticks Event Center Wedding | Des Moines, Iowa Wedding Photographers

Jess and Taylor had a picture perfect wedding day at Sticks here in Des Moines. They started out getting ready at the new AC Hotel by Marriott in the East Village.

I can’t say enough great things about the AC Hotel, what a great venue for getting ready! I highly suggest all wedding couples pick a getting ready venue with wonderful light.

Their first look took place in the lobby of the hotel, and just such a great new spot in Des Moines!

These two are just so perfect for each other, it’s evident from the smiles and laughter shared by the two the entire day. I am pretty sure they both didn’t stop smiling the entire day!

From the AC Marriott we headed to the Iowa Capital steps for some bridal party photos then across the street for a bit of shade with a great view of downtown Des Moines.

Finally pre-ceremony we headed to the park with the best view of the city.

They were married under the gorgeous trees at Sticks’ Design Studio Warehouse. I can’t say enough great things about how unique Sticks is, it truly is a blank canvas that you can mold it into what you want and what fits you as a couple. Such a perfect venue! (I might be bias as Tanner and I were married there 3 years ago!)

During the ceremony the crossed the thin blue line as Taylor is a police officer saying that Jess supports his career and him putting his life on the line. What a beautiful moment! We’ve photographed several law enforcement members weddings over the years, I’d never heard of this. Such a touching moment! Thank you for all you do officers!

Post ceremony they had an amazing band play at cocktail hour while we did sunset photos around the Sticks venue. I can’t say enough about our wonderful couples giving us 20 min around sunset for photos. They always turn out to be my favorite when the light is just perfect!

They danced the night away and we ended the night with some smoke bombs for night portraits.

Overall Tanner and I had the best time capturing your big day. Thanks so much for having us. What a perfect September wedding day, congratulations you two!
