Aly Carroll Photography… The nuptials of Sheila and Jake were held at Reiman Gardens in Ames, Iowa, August 15, 2014. On this day, however, the setting was more reminiscent of an English countryside garden, complete with pea gravel pathways, an idyllic potting shed, and masses of late summer plantings spilling from estate-worthy urns.

It was a small, nostalgically intimate gathering, with only a few close family and friends attending. After being escorted down the aisle by their young daughter Sophie, the couple were wed against the backdrop of nature.

Professional floral designer Shelly Sarver artfully embellished the outdoor space with gorgeous pale pink roses, white hydrangeas, and dusty sage greenery. Flowing grosgrain ribbons highlighted the elegant arrangements.

Sophie even had her own little on-site retreat – – an adorable striped canvas tent, crowned with a delicate cascade of blushing blooms. A sunset reception was held on the terrace under large periwinkle umbrellas. Lanterns dotted the landscape, and star garland and fairy lights twinkled above in the leafy canopy of trees.

Fine art wedding photographer Aly Carroll captured all the allure and nuance of this lovely celebration. No doubt, every image will continue to tell the story of Sheila and Jake’s romantic “English country” wedding for years to come.
