Classic Des Moines Iowa State Historical Museum Wedding

Scott & Madison had an incredibly fun wedding day! I arrived to the hotel suite and everyone was getting their hair and makeup done! Madison’s dad hid in the bathroom so that we could sneak her out to the balcony for their Daddy-daughter first look. Their relationship was sweet to watch the whole day.

Madison and I walked around the corner of the hotel to a sweet, little garden we found. It was perfect for their first look! Scott had the BEST reaction when he saw Madison. It’s pretty obvious that he adores her – plus, she looked GORGEOUS in her wedding dress!

Once we arrived at the church, we had a blast taking group photos, as well as family picture before the ceremony. Their ceremony was just like them – laid back and fun! After mingling and dismissing their guests, we headed over to the Iowa State Capitol to take some extra fun group photos! The State Historical Museum of Iowa was just down the road from the Capitol, so after taking more pictures, we headed over.

Their reception was such a blast – they pulled some incredible dance moves during their first dance as well!

Throughout the whole day, Scott & Madison made it so clear just how important their family and friends are to them and it was so wonderful getting to be part of their day.
