The District Venue Winter Wedding

Alyssa and Aaron were married this past early winter, and the love their friends and family gave them was one of the most genuine loves I have ever felt at a wedding. As a local photographer to the Des Moines area and just capturing Iowa photography moments all around I have really come to love wedding toasts! I cry almost every time.

But, to get back to the start of their wedding, I loved Alyssas hotel room window where she was getting ready! Some of my favorite bridal shots and bridal party shots were taken in there!

Another really special aspect of this wedding is that Alyssa is a baker, and she made her own wedding cake!!! And all of the desserts! I had never tried key lime anything in my life, but I know what I will be ordering a ton of for my birthday this year!!! (key-lime cake balls!!!!) If you are searching for a baker, seriously look no further!!! The Sweetest Thing is amazing and we also just shot a cake smash for her 30th birthday! She baked that cake as well, so head on over to the blog and check her out!

Congrats to you both, I had such a blast at this beautiful Iowa Wedding you had! <3
