Meet one of our lovely couples, Brenna and Brandon! These two had their wedding and reception at the Empyrean of downtown Fort Wayne. This was for sure a daddy-daughter kind of day. Brenna had many sweet moments with her father. After being helped into her dress by her mother and bridesmaids, Brenna stepped out to see her father. This first look was one of the sweetest we’ve captured. When her father turned around, he was just radiating with pride and joy – his little girl was getting married! It was a very touching and emotional first look and we were so happy to capture it. Seriously, just look at that smile (see photos below)!

After one touching first look came another! This time with her groom, Brandon. Brandon waited at the altar where they would later be wed. Brenna walked down the aisle towards him, tapped gently on his shoulder, and the two locked eyes. Brandon was so happy! He was in complete awe at the beauty of his bride. And hey, so were we! She looked so beautiful on their big day!

After all the tears and the first looks, we hit the town! We went to all the hotspot locations of downtown Fort Wayne with their bridal party… and had a blast while doing it! After taking some sweet pictures, we all headed up to the Empyrean once again for the wedding. Brenna’s father gave her away, Brenna and Brandon did a soil ceremony together symbolizing unity and the joining of families, and the two became husband and wife! The best part of this job is seeing so many beautiful beginnings. It’s the best!

After taking some more photos, the reception began. With that, so did the speeches, cake cutting, and dancing. Brenna’s father had a wonderful toast – I wish I had gotten it on video, but I was too busy taking pictures! Brenna and her father had a special surprise for the guests – a choreographed first dance. It was unique and definitely a memorable moment for all in attendance. We loved being a part of this awesome day and wish you guys a happy marriage. Enjoy life together!
