Winter in Iowa calls for getting creative and finding unique spaces for your indoor styled photoshoots. Meet Fox Brewing in Valley Junction: industrial, open, multi-leveled and plenty of interesting nooks for photo ops. (Not to mention the delicious beer selection on tap.)

The main wall features a blank canvas of all white brick, perfect for creating a backdrop to use for the ceremony space or bridal party table. I built the copper arch and attached greenery and hops for color and texture. The hanging lettering was created by Ann Marie & Co. who specializes in custom lazar cut lettering for signs and backdrops.

Staying true to the brewery theme, flower bouquets featured hops and burnt orange "coffee break" roses in addition to white tulips, blue privet berries and burgundy amaryllis.

Mike + Ryan's Wedding

This stunning wedding took place on a perfect fall day in Des Moines, Iowa where the urban setting made for a lovely, modern backdrop. Creating Ryan's wedding flowers was exciting for me because she has always been very into fashion and I knew she would have some great ideas to work with. Of course she picked out the perfect color scheme of nude, rose gold and blush and the ideas started rolling from there. We ended up using dahlias, hydrangeas and garden roses as the main focal points and mixed in some blush and rose gold tones. The ceremony took place at Simon Estes Amphitheater followed by a reception at the Des Moines Embassy Club.
