There’s so many great things I could say about Kenan and Cui, but this blog post would go on for days! I was honored that they wanted me to handle their wedding planning and design process to create their special day. These two are the most humble, generous, and kind hearted souls you will ever meet. The first time I met them I felt an instant connection and knew I had to learn more about their love story and themselves as individuals. Cui’s sweet and inviting presence paired with Kenan’s fun, let’s do this attitude make these two the perfect match. I love how Kenan looks at Cui as if she were the only girl in the room. The love they have for each other clearly shows and I am so excited to share all that love from their wedding day!
These two come from two different states and two different cultures. Their wedding day was all about giving their guests an experience to remember, as well as incorporating some of their culture traditions. Cui and Kenan are a super classy couple, so there was no question that the venue and overall vibe of their wedding day would be elegant, timeless, and romantic.
Here’s a little recap of their summer wedding at the historic Hotel Fort Des Moines downtown!
