The Everything Bridal Show :: Des Moines, Iowa

We ventured out this morning for our 3rd ever bridal show. We decided to make some improvements on our booth from last year and scrapped the old one completely and built something taller and sturdier. Unfortunately, I didn’t put 2 and 2 together. Sturdier = heavier, much heavier. So we rented a U-Haul and had a few hired hands to help us move the booth.

We arrived at the Hy-Vee Conference Center at around 6:20am this morning. The booth was unloaded and we were set up by 9:15am. The show promptly started at 10:00am and had some great traffic. We really enjoyed meeting everyone that came out.

On a side note we were really happy to see Katie from Cakesmith out and about with a booth this year again! She and her husband are absolutely wonderful and make some of the most delicious sweets I’ve ever tasted. Check ’em out!

I want to say a quick thank you to the following people:
Joey and My – You both are amazing friends. Thanks for coming out to help paint, polyeurethane, cut wood, tell jokes, chase me around parking lots and just have a great time. Thanks for the Choco Tacos that were needed for this construction project.

Eric and Mel – For being a great support and bringing Sarah and I coffee when we needed it the most today. We love you guys.

Laura & John and Grant & Allison – You are all model brides and grooms. Thanks for stopping out! We wish you guys best and can’t wait to do some more hangin’ out!

To our parents – Thanks for coming out and seeing us in action! A HUGE thanks again to my Dad for all the use of his tools and his assistance in this project. Also for letting Joey and I drag him around a hardware store for an hour or two.

MODUS Engineering and Simonson Architects – Thanks for letting us use the vacant space up front to stage this thing! I would’ve really had a challenge if I had to do this anywhere else!

To my wife, best friend and business partner – You’re wonderful and am so glad you had the energy when I didn’t. Thanks for taking care of our children while I played mad scientist with this project.

To all our future brides and grooms – THANK YOU! We are so excited for what’s to come and can not wait to photograph your wedding.

Have a wonderful remainder of the weekend everyone!

Hey Sarah-
Ok I just now got around to looking at these pics. OMG!! SOOOOO awesome! You guys ROCK!
Thank you. They look great. We were wondering how much it would cost to have you take family photos of us? We were thinking here in Mingo.
Also I have an EVITE to send to you. We are having a party this Friday Oct. 1st. We would love to see you again.
🙂 Katie
