van-meter-wedding-photographervan-meter-wedding-photographerstationery suite So, recently I had the opportunity to try my hand at wedding stationery.  I have to say, it's probably not something I'll do a lot of, but I think it turned out all right.  I love the cranberry, blush, and sage tones in this suite.  Such a perfect pairing for this shoot!  This Boho alpaca shoot to be more specific.  Love! iowa-wedding-photographeriowa-wedding-photographercustom designed stationery suite for boho wedding iowa-city-photographeriowa-city-photographerboho wedding gown This dress is beyond gorgeous!  The touches of lace and soft flowy skirt were simple yet stunning.  The fantastic leather bag from Wells Cooperative was gorgeous!  Pretty sure I need one now. authentic-iowa-weddingauthentic-iowa-weddingdress details of stunning boho style gown des-moines-photographydes-moines-photographyvintage shoes The jewelry, also from Wells Cooperative, was perfect.  Not only were the pieces gorgeous and perfectly suite to the look, but they're also hand crafted by fair trade artisans.

101619-014101619-014 This lounge is perfection!  The mix of colors and textures is fantastic.  It makes you just want to grab a seat and enjoy the gorgeous fall evening. I love visiting Vintage Love Rental's warehouse, but seeing their pieces out on location, so beautifully styled, was a joy!

The hand crafted candles are made from preserved florals, bringing even more texture and color to the decor.  Suspended in Time DSM handcrafts each of them.  How fun is that?  And can we take a moment to appreciate the gorgeous pompous grasses, succulents, and mixed greenery in the floral arrangement?  Love! 101619-017101619-017 101619-018101619-018 101619-019101619-019 101619-021101619-021 101619-025101619-025 I'm a bit obsessed with these earrings now.  Seriously. 101619-031101619-031 I love the tweed bowtie and vest paired with a crisp white shirt, jeans, and boots.  Such a brilliant combination and perfectly fitting for the Iowa fields where this took place.  Milroy's Tuxedo's styling of this groom was great! 101619-035101619-035 Ok, now we get to the real stars of the show.  These sweet alpacas!  If I could have taken one home I would have.  They're so cute and fluffy and soft!!  They weren't terribly interested in having their photos taken, well absolutely uninterested would pretty much sum them up, but I love the photos we got with them. 101619-036101619-036 101619-037101619-037 101619-040101619-040 101619-043101619-043 101619-045101619-045 The bouquet was filled with colors and textures, so many stunning flowers.  Something Chic Floral never disappoints and she outdid herself on this one! 101619-049101619-049 Yep.  Still head over heels for this bag! 101619-066101619-066 101619-067101619-067 The evening was quite breezy, which made some things trickier.  It however was absolutely perfect for this silk chiffon skirt!  Breathtaking! 101619-070101619-070 101619-071101619-071 101619-073101619-073 101619-075101619-075 101619-077101619-077 101619-082101619-082 101619-086101619-086 101619-092101619-092 101619-097101619-097 101619-107101619-107 101619-109101619-109

The gold tones, brasses, reds and browns of this tablescape are perfect for this Boho shoot.  A beautiful mix of new and vintage!  Plus a few of those fantastic preserved floral candles. 101619-053101619-053 101619-052101619-052 101619-110101619-110 101619-112101619-112 Love using the low table and cushions instead of your standard table and chairs.  It adds even more texture and interest and is so different. 101619-135101619-135 101619-136101619-136 This cake.  I mean, look at it.  Beautiful clean lines, paired with gorgeous textures in the succulents and ribbon.  So perfectly boho!  Fareway Bakeries did an amazing job! 101619-140101619-140 101619-142101619-142 101619-146101619-146 101619-151101619-151 101619-154101619-154 Another gorgeous Wells product, this fantastic clutch! 101619-156101619-156 101619-161101619-161 101619-162101619-162 101619-166101619-166 101619-114101619-114 Golden hour is my happy place.  The only thing that makes is better is having so many gorgeous things to photograph.  The golden light was so romantic and soft.
