#1 East Village Des Moines 

The East Village in Des Moines is where we like to take a lot of our couples. It is a breath of fresh air and a different vibe than downtown Des Moines. It gives you a sense of the old mixing with the new. You can find gorgeous ivy walls, brickwork, and more in the East Village.

For our couples that want an outside vibe while staying in the city World Food Prize Garden is the place for you. The garden has elegant fountains and gorgeous flower gardens to capture the perfect romantic vibe.

Downtown Des Moines truly has it all from striking architecture to beautiful flowers and greenery to a more rustic look. You can find a spot for those photos in downtown. We love taking our couples here, and seem to find a new spot every time we venture downtown.
