TODAY we're sharing our favorite photos from the rooftop party we hosted last month at The Des Moines Building! All of these were shot by Alyssa Leicht, who about made us cry tears of joy when she sent us the gallery of images. ALL OF THEM ARE SO GOOD. It's pretty cool when a photographer can accurately capture the atmosphere of an event, and Alyssa did just that.
Lucky for us, really all the vendors we had the chance of working with for the party were great..with the word "great" being a huge umbrella term for kind, generous, talented, etc. If we could do it all again, we'd work with them all in a heartbeat! We had cool pink lighting and sleek lounge furniture brought in from the awesome guys at Unique Events, music from DJ Rock Paper Scissors that totally set the mood we were looking for, and beautiful, inviting florals from Jenn & Adam, the sweet duo behind PepperHarrow Farm. We also had some really cool tropical plants from Boesen, delicious desserts by Nicole Tesch of GoodWord Catering, and styling help from our lifesaver of a friend, Emily Powell. And of course, we'd be crazy to forget the Vodka Thyme Moscato cocktails our girl Steph Ferguson created just for the party (that we want to drink basically every day), and the two lovely ladies who helped us greet guests at the door, Andrea Metzler & Adot Gak.
Thanks so much to all of the vendors who worked on this party with us, and to all of our awesome guests who made the night so memorable. Annnd to the T-Rex for showing up randomly and dominating that dance circle.
Ps. We tried to narrow these images down to just a handful of ones we loved, but that's pretty much impossible when each shot is so perfect. (Thanks Alyssa!!) Anyway, we hope you loved these pictures as much as we do and that you enjoyed the party as much as we did. Thanks for all the support throughout the past year!
