“Make sure you eat some cake, you deserve it!” Regan Doely said after her big day. She wishes she would’ve taken a moment to savor the details, like enjoying the fabulous cake she spent weeks picking out. As your big day gets closer and closer, your dreams start to become a reality. For Regan, her reality started in West Des Moines when her soon-to-be fiancée hid a Go-Pro to capture the words she had waited so long to hear.
As planning began, Regan wanted to bring her dream wedding to life by creating a vintage, romantic feel. She made her decorations very neutral to let her florals add a pop of color while staying complementary. She had a difficult time finding a venue that would capture the vintage character she was looking for, but then she finally found the one! She said she loved the antiques, white walls and hardwood floors that really let her decorations take the center stage. Throughout the planning process, she said her husband was very helpful but only had one request, to pick the caterer. Imagine that!
Regan also got to make a hobby of hers come to life during her wedding planning, designing stationary. She was a rockstar bride and designed all of her invitations and programs by herself! It was extremely exciting when she saw her talents altogether and sent it to all of their friends and family.
Mr. and Mrs. Doely look fondly back on their big day because they got to see all their creations come to life. They said their day was filled with emotions and loved how the pastor was able to personalize their ceremony, it was the icing on the cake! What made it all worth it? Hearing the words, “I now pronounce you Mr. and Mrs. Doely, you may kiss the bride!” Best. Day. Ever.
