Tabbi and Ethan’s Des Moines Tea Room wedding was an absolutely beautiful day to photograph. I met Tabbi at the Des Moines Wedding Show and immediately knew that I would love photographing their wedding day. Tabbi and Ethan are laid back, fun and have impeccable taste as you’ll learn from these photos of their wedding day. Tabbi and her wedding party got ready at the Tea Room. The getting ready room has amazing light from two angles since it’s on the corner of the building. Because of this, photographing getting ready looked beautiful.
Ethan and his guys got ready at the Des Moines Marriott downtown which made for amazing photos. The room had dark and colorful backdrops and beautiful sunlight pouring in. The couple was then ready for their first look, so we placed them on one of the Tea Room’s stunning balconies. After the first look, we walked around downtown for more great photo ops, including swinging by my studio space for some editorial type portraits! I love having a studio right downtown to pop in for unique looks as well as having a backup rain option if need be!
After couple portraits, the wedding party joined us downtown for photos as well! After wedding party photos, we headed back into the tea room for family formals. Once the family formal photos were finished, everyone freshened up and got ready for the ceremony. Bella Flora did an amazing job with the arch for the ceremony. It looked absolutely amazing! After the ceremony, we went into the main room for the reception. Again, the reception space was decorated beautifully.
