April 17, 2021
Anna & Jesse are the perfect combination of fun and romantic. I knew from day one that their wedding day would bring a lot of different emotions; an emotional roller coaster if you will. From their private moments of prayer, to their energetic bridal party, all the way to the memorable parent dances; you will experience all the feelings from their day.
As we finalized their wedding timeline about a month or so before their wedding, Jesse had informed that his mother had been very ill; they were not sure if she would be there on his wedding day. I could tell in my heart they needed someone to support them as embarked on this roller coster of emotions they were about to experience. I prayed and prayed for weeks, as I’m sure many of their friends and family did.
April 17, 2021 couldn’t have been a more perfect day. We had the right amount of sunshine and overcast, which you could say went well with all the emotions. Anna & Jesse celebrated their marriage with family and friends at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in West Des Moines followed with a reception at the Forte Banquet & Event Center.
All weddings have emotion, but this one had all possible emotions wrapped into on day, in a good way! It made for one of my favorite weddings of 2021, one that I will never forget. I have so much love for these two and I know you will too.
