Tabitha and Alex’s Wedding at The Heights Rooftop in Iowa City, Iowa

A Spectacular Spring Wedding in Iowa City, Iowa

A love story born from the halls of St. Lukes Hospital

Tabitha and Alex’s story began at St. Luke’s hospital in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. They were both doing their internships for Medical Laboratory Science. Alex was in his phlebotomy rotation and Tabitha needed to get her student labs done before she could start her internship. Alex happened to be the lucky one to draw her blood.  Tabitha turned out to be one of the most difficult blood draws of Alex’s career. Tabitha is a Minnesota girl who was trying to make friends in Iowa. Alex soon started to invite Tabitha to trivia at Tailgaters in Coralville almost every Friday. It was only a matter of time before they knew that they were meant for each other.

Stress-Free Wedding Day

Tabitha and Alex decided to go with Soirée Wedding Planning to ensure a stress-free wedding day. Emily had planned & designed Alex’s brother’s wedding back in 2018. It always is such a compliment to get to work with people from the same family for their wedding planning and we love that we already know a lot of their friends & family already.

Tabitha and Alex decided on the Experience package which includes the planning & design of their gorgeous weekend. Our team of experienced wedding planners understands the importance of personalization and making everything come together. We worked closely with Tabitha and Alex to understand their vision, style, and priorities, incorporating them into every aspect of the wedding planning process. She wanted a beautiful, floral-filled, lavender celebration, and we think we nailed it! Here is the inspiration board. Keep scrolling to see how it all turned out!
