One of my luckiest days in all of wedding planning was coming across Carissa at a wedding fair in Des Moines! From day one, she was courteous, innovative, kind, upbeat, incredibly creative… and on top of this, had far and away the most competitive pricing of anyone in the Midwest! And trust me, I searched everywhere! Working with Carissa and her team – Lexie in particular, from Carissa’s team – was simply a joy. Together, they created the most beautiful invitations I could have ever dreamed up; all of our guests raved about them. Carissa and Lexie were unbelievably patient, thoughtful, and extremely talented; I could not have asked for more! I keep trying to find other products for them to make, because the quality of their work is so exceptional. I am in awe of Carissa and Lexie, and would recommend them to literally anyone across the country trying to plan a unique, beautiful wedding. They’ll make it happen!

I was the mother of the groom, I’m older, and thought that the photo booth was kinda dumb and expensive… BOY WAS I WRONG!!! It was a HUGE hit for all ages!! And some of the BEST photos of all of the guests ever. Best thing ever, book it!!!

I made the best decision hiring her to photograph my wedding. She was prompt and prepared, personal and professional, and most importantly, she provided me with gorgeous photos I will cherish forever. Unlike traditional wedding photos, she infuses creativity and artistic capabilities, while also capturing moments that happen once, reassuring me that all of my important memories could be relieved years later. I can’t imagine having had a better photographer for our wedding day! Most photographers are people you meet once, receive pictures, then continue on through life’s journey, but my experience with her was much different. She is easy to connect with and builds lasting relationships with her customers.

Thank you for capturing one of the most important days of our lives; I will be forever grateful!

Weddings by Carue did a fantastic job on my wedding entrance poster, seating chart, menus, ceremony programs, and other misc. signs I requested. They were very professional and fairly priced. I would highly recommend Weddings by Carue! Thank you for your wonderful job on my special day♥

She was professional, incredibly kind and prepared. She met with us ahead of time to decide what style of photographs we wanted and which moments we wanted captured. She adapted to our schedule and our desires (which was to capture the candid moments of the day as well as the planned ones). She asked important questions that I hadn’t even considered; it helped us to feel comfortable and know what to expect on our wedding day.

Finally, the end result was worth the investment. We ended up with TONS of lovely photographs which capture the joy and beauty of that day.

Weddings by Carue was the best choice we could have made for our invitations. Carissa was so patient with me as we finalized the design, making sure I had exactly what I wanted. The final product is beautiful: elegant and classy without being ostentatious, the perfect design to set the tone for our wedding day. The pricing is quite affordable, especially when other area designers are charging a lot more. The service was excellent from start to finish!

Carissa did an amazing job! Got us just what we wanted. Very flexible with prices, fonts/design, as well as setting up meetings to review and pick up merchandise. She even went out of her way to help us find welcome bags and table number holders!

                                          ~ Mr. & Mrs. Goedken


She did an awesome job! She was so easy to work with and had amazing ideas for different pics. She made us both feel very comfortable with her for both the engagement pictures and the wedding pictures. She made sure to get all the pictures that I said I wanted and had a great eye to make the pictures look amazing. I would not change anything about my wedding and am so glad that she was there to document the day so we would always be able to look back at it.
