Emily and Max’s wedding was jaw-droppingly beautiful! Don’t read this post until you read about their beautiful city engagement session and see all of their photos (CLICK ME)! Max and Emily’s wedding ceremony and reception were at the Sycamore Hills Golf Club, a beautiful Fort Wayne venue for weddings and other events – We loved having the opportunity to take photos in this gorgeous setting for Emily and Max’s big day!
The day started early for Emily and her bridesmaids, spending the morning getting ready in one of the club’s cottages. Red Stiletto Hair and Makeup did a wonderful job creating the perfect wedding day look for Emily and her bridesmaids. After Emily’s bridesmaids put on their dresses, it was time for Emily to be helped into her dress. If you had read our blog post about Emily and Max’s engagement session, you would know that they live in New York City. Can you guess where Emily got her wedding dress? Yes, Kleinfeld Bridal! This gorgeous pleated gown had most beautiful beading and detail – simple, elegant, and show-stopping. Emily’s mom helped her into her dress while surrounded by her bridesmaids. Just like that, it was time for the first look with Max!
Right outside the entrance of the clubhouse, Max patiently awaited the arrival of his beautiful bride and partner of many years. Emily walked right up to Max, tapped on his shoulder, and he saw Emily in her beautiful white dress for the first time! After a sweet embrace, the two waited inside with their family and bridal party for the ceremony to begin. The ceremony was under the beautiful covered patio area of the Club house. There was greenery and flowers hanging from the ceiling, on the cake, at every table, and just about everywhere else too – All hand-arranged and hand-crafted by Rose’s Bouquets, a wedding only florist. There was even a beautiful floral arch hung where the ceremony took place. After the super sweet ceremony officiated by Max’s dad, we headed out on the course for a few rounds of golf! Just kidding. We actually headed to the green for some pictures!
Shortly after photos of the bridal party and family portraits, the bridal party made their grand entrance to the dining room where guests cheered for their arrival! The was a funny dual toast by Max’s two brothers, a sweet maid of honor toast by Emily’s long-time college roommate and best friend, and an additional toast by a groomsmen who knows both Emily and Max. After toasts, dinner, and some sweet cake cutting, family and guests headed out on the covered patio for the dancing!
This was such a sweet wedding to be a part of. We loved having the opportunity to capture Emily and Max’s love in New York City and in Fort Wayne, their two homes. Best of wishes to you guys!
