My mom said that she doesn’t like that I don’t tell little stories about the people in my blogs, anymore.
SO. . .
Mackenzie and I had the best first bridal meeting. EVER. We met on a sunny Sunday afternoon at Pride Fest to check out a potential band for her wedding reception.
We had a blast.
The second time we hung out, I got to meet Kyle.
We spent a beautiful fall night driving around the countryside for their engagement session.
Kyle and Mackenzie love Madison County and their dog and the country and music and all things authentic.
They spent many days exploring these back roads and this place became a big part of their heart story.
And we met a donkey. Score.
Kyle’s pretty quiet (at least with strangers in his truck), but it’s easy to see how he feels about Mackenzie.
They are having an amazing wedding next June that I am already so excited about.
The ceremony is in Mackenzie’s family home’s back yard (rolling country hills). The reception is in Brenton Skating Plaza in downtown Des Moines.
Some of the best vendors in the state are on board.
But I’m happiest to be a part of their celebration and to know these people and witness this love.
