As a wedding photographer, I get so so excited when I hear about new things within the wedding industry! And when I heard about a new venue super close to home, I knew I had to check it out!
Just outside of West Des Moines, tucked away behind a half mile drive through trees, lies Country Lane Lodge.
This venue has so many gorgeous features, and I knew I wanted to team up with some amazing vendors and showcase this gorgeous space!
As some of you may know, outdoor weddings leave me swooning! And this new venue actually offers 2 locations for outdoor ceremonies! Our dream team of vendors enjoy rustic weddings, but when thinking about our ceremony set up, as well as the overall style, we wanted to think outside of the box! Even though Country Lane Lodge lends itself well to rustic weddings, we wanted to show how it can host a wide variety of styles and themes, and went for more of a boho, whimsical style!
I hope you all enjoy what we came up with! I had such a great time working with all these amazing vendors, and am excited at the possibility of shooting more real weddings here too!
