Magnolia Farms

Nothing is warmer than true love in the winter! We can’t get enough of this classy, trendy, cold weather styled shoot led by Carly from The Wedding Trailer at Magnolia Farms in Adel, Iowa.

The snow-white color palette layered with textures of pearls, greenery, and fur add dimension and intimate inspiration. And can we talk about the vintage charm this VW bus brings? It’s a show-stopping addition to this winter wedding wonderland.

FLORAL ROMANCE

HEARTLANDWEDDINGIDEAS.COM 14 IT’S MY Big DAY EASTERN IOWA
Hey Herky! How fun to make sure this favorite mascot was on the guest list.

You'll find little Lego details everywhere!

In high school, Clayton asked Aleisha to prom with a sign saying – “Lego to prom?” – a cutesy play on his last name. Little did he know that Lego blocks would one day be a building block for their gorgeous, joy-filled wedding!

Much like that promposal, the engagement was a total surprise for Aleisha. Clayton arranged a double date night to Park Farm Winery with woodfired pizza, local wine, and romantic countryside views. When the moment was just right on the patio of the winery, Clayton popped the big question! He even arranged for a photographer friend to capture the moment and their families joined for the celebration.

The special atmosphere of the winery provided inspiration for wedding planning. Aleisha and Clayton wanted to choose a venue that incorporated nature and supported the community, plus had airy, earthy, romantic vibes – and they found just that at Walker Homestead outside of Iowa City.

“It has beautiful views, wonderful food and wine, and such friendly staff. The idea of farm to table was also something that we were so happy to incorporate into our wedding day,” Aleisha says.

HEARTLANDWEDDINGIDEAS.COM 15

The couple worked hand in hand throughout the whole wedding process, which was a special way to begin their lifelong journey together. They coordinated closely with Emily and Gracie of Soiree Wedding Planning to put a fine point on every detail, identify additional vendors, and ensure the day ran smoothly.

When envisioning their special day, Aleisha and Clayton had a lot of fun playing with their future last name. They had a Lego groom’s cake, Lego bouquets, and even Lego shoe charms!

In a more subtle nod, they incorporated a bright jewel-tone palette into their invitations, bridesmaid dresses, linens, and of course, the stunning florals. Shelly Sarver Designs picked up the bright color palette and created the perfect earthy, yet playful bouquets, centerpieces, and ceremony altar.

“Shelly made our absolute dream vision come to life! I was so excited about the bright colors of our florals being everywhere, and she made that happen,” Aleisha shares. “I still look at the pictures of the floral in awe because it was even better than I ever could have imagined.”

Aleisha had long admired the photographer Ivory + Bliss, so Lindsay was one of the first vendors the couple booked.

“She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. We never had our photos professionally taken, so we were initially nervous, but Lindsay put us at ease right away,” she shares.

They also worked with Madisen Lynn Videography to capture a video of the wedding day that included all the special “real” moments that made the day perfect. She quickly became a friend to the couple, sharing positive and infectious energy throughout the day.

Reflecting on what worked well throughout the planning process Aleisha credits her and Clayton’s teamwork.

“The partnership between the two of us during the planning process was special and it was also so meaningful for us to have our loved ones collaborate with us as well,” Aleisha says. “We loved having pieces of them in the planning and throughout the day because they mean so much to us.”

ANN-CHARLOTTE & JEFFREY

TIME-HONORED GRACE

22 IT’S MY Big DAY CENTRAL IOWA

For Ann-Charlotte and Jeff, a perfect wedding day was all about tradition, elegance, and celebrating with their loved ones. Together, with the help of their families and stellar wedding vendors, they pulled off a gorgeous affair that perfectly suited their very own love story.

While the couple knew marriage was in their future, Ann-Charlotte was completely surprised when Jeff got down on one knee to propose. With a gorgeous ring in hand and the blessing of her mother, the proposal was an incredibly special way to begin their engagement.

As the couple embarked on wedding planning, they were inspired by the historic elements of their wedding day venues — Central Presbyterian Church and Hotel Fort Des Moines. They knew they wanted a

The bride has always loved sealing her letters with wax – so a wax seal was a must when designing invitations with TandemHart Paperie.

sophisticated and timeless style, and it was important to create a memorable day that felt like it reflected the couple and their love.

“My favorite part of planning was thinking about all the little details that really set our wedding apart and made the day so unique and special,” Ann-Charlotte shares.

Ann-Charlotte glowed in her classically beautiful wedding dress, paired with diamond earrings that were a gift from her dad to her mom, and a Jennifer Behr headband to complete her bridal look.

The couple was married at Central Presbyterian Church — the church they both attended while growing up. Family was an integral part of their ceremony, with Ann-Charlotte’s mom walking her down the aisle, a single rose on the altar to honor her late father, the couple’s siblings standing by their sides, and adorable nieces

and nephews as flower girls and page boys.

One of Ann-Charlotte’s favorite parts of the day was exiting the church after the ceremony, and being showered by floral confetti.

“It was so joyous and special, better than I could have imagined,” she says. “I love the memory of our ceremony exit in a cloud of flowers.”

With the help of trusted recommendations and the expertise of wedding planner Gina Cramer of Make it Happen Events, the couple assembled a team of vendors who brought their wedding day vision to life.

They worked with Alesha at TandemHart Paperie to design their stationery, including a gorgeous letterpress invitation suite with a hint of dusty blue and a golden wax seal. Jane with Boesen the Florist created absolutely stunning florals, filled with delicate roses and never-ending baby’s breath throughout both the ceremony space and reception. And the icing on the cake was a gorgeous vintage

tiered wedding cake created by Gloria with Glorious Desserts.

“We had such a lovely time at our cake tasting and Gloria helped refine the style of Lambeth cake I was looking for based on other elements of our wedding,” Ann-Charlotte says. “She exceeded all of our expectations — the cake was absolutely stunning and delicious too!”

The party reached a high note with the eightpiece band that kept the dance floor packed until the final “Country Roads” singalong. Guests snapped fun memories at the Snap XP photo booth and the celebration continued at the speakeasy in the Hotel Fort Des Moines, In Confidence, where the afterparty kept the fun going late into the night.

Ann-Charlotte and Jeff’s wedding was not just a celebration of their love but also a tribute to the enduring spirit of romance and cherished memories. Cheers to the beautiful couple and a lifetime of happiness!
