This was hands down one of my favorite weddings with two of my favorite people!! This weekend my cousin Beau married Lexi! They are the nicest easy going people, you are always going to have a good time with them! I had a blast doing their engagement photos and when I got the message from Lexi saying they moved their wedding date up I screamed and freaked out like a little girl!  This intimate  west des moines wedding had them surrounded by the ones they love the most, it was everything a wedding should be.

Lexi’s wedding dress was breathtakingly beautiful!! It was unlike anything I have ever seen! I expected nothing less from her either! As a designer, she has the best since of style! If you would like to read more about Lexi and learn a few things about design, product reviews, diy’s and more hope on over to her blog here!!

Here are some of my favorite photos from their wedding day!

Here is that beautiful dress and all its glory!!!
