elsa's elegance in fall, downtown des moines yellow + gray wedding / ben and liz / minneapolis wedding photographer

what a joy this wedding was! the sun so perfectly shining on a bride and groom whose personalities "shine" onto everyone around them. while watching ben and liz interact, the word that comes to mind is genuine. the two are joyfully in love with their best friend and i'm so glad i got to be a part of their day! 

the ceremony was at cornerstone church in ankeny, ia followed by a reception at forte banquet center in downtown des moines. everything so tastefully done from the food to the dj, the flowers to the table placements. the october air to the skyline view to the reception. 

congrats to mr. and mrs. howe! i am so excited to see where marriage takes you two!
