Elegant Wedding at the Historical Salisbury House in Des Moines, Iowa (13)

Today’s stunning real wedding, brought to us by Kerri Photography, is a delightful blend of classical elegance and whimsy! Here’s Kerri to tell us more:

This wedding took place at the ever so lovely Salisbury House and Gardens located in Des Moines, Iowa. The historical mansion offers Century old stained glass windows, beautiful stone architecture, and an outdoor garden that will take your breath away. This bride emphasized that the small details of her day were very important to her (the bouquet, the vintage tea pots and table centers, the seating placements, her vail, etc) so I was sure to highlight them to the level they deserved. I also knew that candids and non-traditional shots were very important to her, so emotion and laughter shared trumped the traditional posed shots.
