Saylorville Lake Wedding Photos :: Cole + Arlene

Wedding Photography in Des Moines, Iowa

Cole and Arlene’s wedding day was chock full of joy! Cole always has a smile on his face – and today was no different… except for when he saw his bride for the first time and when she walked down the aisle. A few tears may or may not have leaked out then. And Arlene… wow. She was simply glowing all day long!

It started to rain right before their first look, so Smokey Row in Ankeny let us borrow their conference room for a more private first look! It was so sweet watching Cole and Arlene interact all day long – they’re so crazy about it each other and it’s so precious. They didn’t let the rain damped their spirits at all!

After their ceremony at Saylorville Church, we headed over to Saylorville Lake. It was important to Cole and Arlene to do all their favorite things on their wedding day. Because of that, we had to take photos at Saylorville Lake where they got engaged, we also stopped over at Porchlight Coffeehouse to grab some caffeine, and then finished the day over at Amigos Mexican Grill for some street tacos.

With all that said – scroll down to view photos from their wedding. Enjoy!
