Victoria & Kyle tied the knot this past Saturday at a beautiful little gem in Des Moines called the Keller Brick Barn.  The day started out with buckets and buckets of rain which was a little concerning as the ceremony was all set up to be held outside.   Throughout the afternoon we kept peeking outside to see how the rain was doing and it was not looking promising.  Luckily the skies cleared up just in time for portraits and the ceremony!  And it even held off the rest of the evening so the guests could enjoy a fire and s’mores!


Tori and Kyle were just a room apart getting ready at the Barn which I’m sure just made their first look hold so much more anticipation.  While we were bringing Tori up the stair Kyle looked nervously at the ceiling and then at his feet, just waiting for the moment when he could turn and look at his beautiful bride.  With background music floating through the air Tori reached out and touched Kyle’s shoulder and he turned around to the most stunning site he would see all day.  And I don’t think his smile left since that moment.


I always feel lucky to have a Bride so willing to go with the flow and do what is needed on her wedding day.  Tori was totally game to go outside in the rocks and grass; even after the downpour, to take all of their portraits.  And that was music to my ears.  🙂


Finally the time came for the ceremony and sun decided to show it’s glowing face through the tree’s to add a glimmer of gold to their vows.   The ceremony went off without a hitch and finally they were married and ready to party the night away; which included a bit of dabbing, hoards of singing men waving dollar bills and Tori totally handling the Thiessen.


Thank you both for allowing me into your lives to capture your very special day, I wish you all the joy and happiness!!!  <3
