Anton & Alyssa's wedding

It's amazing what a difference one day can make here in Iowa.  As I sit here and type this blog post it is 4 degrees with a wind chill of -13 degrees.  Yesterday, at Anton and Alyssa's wedding, it was a beautiful 51 degrees.  Not too bad for the end of December! 

Tara and I had the privilege to take the wedding photos for Anton and Alyssa yesterday and had an amazing time.  I've become quite close with Alyssa's family having taken wedding photos for her sister, senior pictures for her brother and 2 sets of baby photos!  Prior to meeting with them to discuss wedding plans I hadn't met Anton and prior to the wedding I hadn't had the opportunity to meet any of his family.  They were equally as kind and personable, it's very easy to see where Anton and Alyssa get their wonderful personalities. 

Their wedding was at the beautiful St. Francis of Assisi church in West Des Moines and the reception followed at the always stunning Glen Oaks Country Club.  We were able to take advantage of the beautiful weather in between the wedding and reception for some rare winter outdoor shots around the club as well as in downtown Des Moines. 

Another highlight of the evening was the reception where Final Mix Show Band provided the entertainment.  Let me tell you, if you want to have a fun, upbeat, reception where everyone is on the dance floor all night long take a look at Final Mix Show Band!  Every reception that I have been to where they are playing has been such a great time, they provide modern dance music as well as classics that everyone knows. 

Congratulations again to Anton and Alyssa, you have been so wonderful and gracious & thanks again to the Mahoney and Stanek families, we're looking forward to working with you again soon!
