Adam and Emily’s wedding day began at a hotel in downtown Des Moines, right on the river. The girls wore a path between two hotel rooms where the hair and makeup were getting done. They were all so excited for Emily and Adam’s big day!
Emily finished getting ready in the suite at Rollins Mansion, before heading to her first look with her dad. That was possibly one of the sweetest daddy/daughter first looks I’ve seen. Her daddy kept saying “Oh!! You look so beautiful!” and at one point he said “Now give a spin!!” He was so excited to watch his little girl get married!
Emily and Adam shared a double first look – where they backed up to one another and then both turned around. Adam shed some tears, and COULD. NOT. stop smiling.
I had two favorite parts of this wedding. When Emily and her dad were about to walk down the stairway into the ceremony, they kept peeking out the windows as the anticipation built. It was so sweet to see. I also loved watching Adam’s first dance with his mom. You can tell they’re best buds, and they were singing and dancing together, and it was precious!
