Rollins Mansion in Des Moines is every photographers dream venue to photograph! It’s a beautiful historic brick mansion just outside of downtown Des Moines. Aside from the beautiful architecture, flower gardens and water fountains, they have a secluded courtyard with a staircase that is perfect for smaller, intimate ceremonies. The greenery, trees and flower gardens make for a scenic backdrop to say ‘I do!’


For Annie and Casey, it was important to incorporate a few special touches into their celebration. Annie wore both a traditional Vietnamese dress and a traditional American dress that she switched into part way through the day. They also chose to read their vows privately before their ceremony. This allowed them to enjoy a moment together before the wedding activities ensued. After a heartfelt and emotional ceremony, the guests enjoyed a cocktail hour on the balcony while we snuck away for some portraits in the courtyard. Dinner was served on the patio and Annie and Casey shared their first dance between the dinner tables, surrounded by family and friends. The fun continued with an epic dance party under the stars! Congratulations Annie + Casey!
