Shalisha + Trent: Des Moines Wedding

Earlier this year, I had the distinct honor to document the wedding of Shalisha and Trent. This gorgeous couple was such a blast to work with during the engagement session, so I knew the wedding was going to be out of this world. But in truth, the reality exceeded even my wildest expectations.

The ladies started their day by getting ready at the Hotel Renovo which was gorgeous, modern, and had some really amazing light. It was such a blast to work the angles of the room while the ladies beautified themselves for the day ahead. Soon after this process was finished, we headed over to Noah's Event Venue to get Shalisha into her beautiful dress and start the intimate ceremony in the brick courtyard.

Fun fact...and one I can barely believe myself....her dad made her dress. Yes, you read that right. Constructed it from the raw fabric, hand sewed everything, etc. For fathers like myself, the bar was most definitely raised. 

The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and proceeded with a wonderful soundtrack from their acoustic singer who's soulful voice set the tone for an emotional ceremony. Then, after a beautiful portrait session in a small vineyard, we returned to Noah's for a private concert as their singer performed the song they heard on the night they met. Absolute perfection.

The night continued with some heartfelt toasts, romantic first dances, and a party to end all parties as guests took to the dance floor until the late hours of the night.

This wedding was absolutely perfect and I can't say enough about how blessed I feel to capture such a special day. Congratulations to you Shalisha and Trent.
