Local Love: Chad Bruntz and Nicole Hunter

Chad Bruntz and Nicole Hunter married on New Year’s Eve 2021, celebrating the new year and the new chapter of their lives with a ceremony and reception at the Des Moines Heritage Center. Nicole is a fourth grade teacher for Des Moines Public Schools and Chad works in investor relations for Casey’s. 

The bride and groom wanted a nontraditional wedding that matched the spirit of New Year’s Eve, so they opted for a colorful, fun-filled ceremony. “We came in from taking nighttime photos, and we just looked across the venue to see all our friends and family merging together, having the time of their lives. A moment we won’t forget!” Nicole says.
