Introducing the new Alexa & Sam Henry! You may remember them from their adorable downtown Fort Wayne engagement session. We were so happy to see these two again and celebrate their Orchard Ridge Country Club wedding! Read on to see more of their great day…
Alexa & Sam had been planning this amazing wedding for two years. It was such a long-awaited and magical day for all! The day started with Alexa getting ready with her sweet bridesmaids. We had a blast photographing Alexa’s portraits at both Bass Mansion at the University of Saint Francis and the newly renovated Orchard Ridge Country Club. She is so talented at modeling thanks to her impressive pageant career! Seriously, check out these insanely gorgeous photos of our bride. She made our job easy! We then went over and took photos of Sam and his groomsmen just before the ceremony.
Then, it was showtime! Alexa & Sam’s lovely ceremony was held at the beautiful St. Vincent Catholic Church. Their guests arrived, the wedding party made their way down the aisle, and Sam waited on his bride. Both of Alexa’s parents walked her down the aisle – it was so sweet! They handed her off to be married to Sam, and off they went. Their wedding ceremony was absolutely beautiful and so perfect for Alexa & Sam! They kissed and were pronounced husband and wife! As they exited the church, they had a balloon send-off – it was so adorable.
Once their guests sent them off, we stayed around and captured family photos and wedding party photos. Then, we went over to Orchard Ridge Country Club to get the reception started! This reception space was so charming. The patio overlooked the scenic golf course, and Pop Pop Balloon set up the coolest balloon garland we’ve ever seen surrounding the patio dance floor! Additionally, they had stunning florals in the reception hall, along with the girls’ bouquets, created by Lopshire Flowers.
After Alexa & Sam and their wedding party made their grand entrances into the reception, it was time for toasts! Following the toasts, our couple headed over to cut their wedding cake, which was fabulously done by For Goodness Cakes! Alexa & Sam then had their adorable first dance, followed by Alexa’s touching dance with her dad and Sam’s sweet dance with his mom. The party took off from there! Their DJ Kevin Kohrman kept the dancing going – they had such a fun crowd! Island Photo Booths was also there with their super cool mirror photo booth. It’s a full-length touch screen mirror – so much fun! Before the night ended, we took our couple outside onto the golf course to get some amazing photos of them! These two are naturals and their love is so evident.
We had the best time capturing Alexa & Sam’s Orchard Ridge Country Club wedding. We’re so excited for them as they begin their marriage! Thanks for letting us be part of your story.
