Anthony Marinaro |::| Out of Box Event Planning & Management

When Shawn and I were in the U.S.  during the holidays, we met up with Anthony – a friend of over 25 years!  Anthony owns and runs Out of Box Event Planning & Management.  Anthony is definitely the “go-to guy” in the Des Moines, IA area for event planning and catering.  Springtime brings the beginning of wedding season, which means Anthony is busy planning multiple events.  If you or someone you know is getting married, contact Anthony to plan your wedding!  Anthony will take care of all of your need in style and he will keep you laughing through the process!  Contact information can be found at the bottom of this post.

We met Anthony at The Village Bean, a great coffee shop in the eclectic East Village area of downtown Des Moines.  (Out of Box serves lunch daily at The Village Bean…so make sure you drop in and say hello to Anthony!)

After we had caught up on life, business and everything in between, I realized the daylight was beginning to disappear.  We quickly headed outside to capture a few photos in the fleeting daylight.  I guess you could call this my first “official”, yet “unofficial” photo shoot.  Anthony was the first person I’ve attempted to do a portrait session with…but we only had about 20 minutes to complete the session!  (I guess we should have stopped talking earlier in the day, to leave more time for taking photos!)  I love Anthony’s style and I look forward to doing more of an “official” photo session the next time we are back in Iowa.  I am waaay overdue in posting these photos, but hopefully the delay was worth it.  🙂

This one is my favorite…

Twins…?  🙂  No!  There is only one Anthony!

Cheers to another 25 years of friendship and laughter!  🙂
