Autumn & Grant are married! These college sweethearts were such a joy to work with. Fun fact, we actually photographed Autumn for a fundraiser at Good Shepherd Church a few years ago! Autumn & Grant were the first-ever couple to get married at the brand new Elysean wedding venue in downtown Fort Wayne. Beautiful, sophisticated, stunning… we’re obsessed, to say the least! Read on to see more of this exciting day…
The venue offered such a cute spot for the girls to get ready. As the sign says, Hello Gorgeous! Autumn’s classy, chic dress from One Fine Day Bridal and Gown Boutique fit their wedding theme so perfectly. Their lovely flowers by Empyrean completed the look! Autumn & Grant gifted their bridal party with fun, personalized cups to remember the day by. After everyone was finished getting ready, it was time for those beloved first looks.
And talk about first looks… Autumn had a first look with her dad, her brother, & Grant! First, a sweet first look between Autumn and her dad, and then, an absolutely precious first look with her brother Cameron. Of course, the couple’s first look always gives us goosebumps! Once all of the reveals were done, we walked to the heart of downtown Fort Wayne to take some bridal party photos.
While downtown, we made sure to hit up all the iconic photo spots including the Allen County Courthouse and the Lincoln Tower’s infamous gold doors. We weren’t the only ones with that idea – we ran into another bride and groom taking photos in front of the gold doors as well! The weather was perfect and made for bright, sunny photos.
Then, we traveled back to Elysean to make their marriage official! Autumn’s dad walked her down the aisle following some adorable ring bearers and handed her off to be married to Grant. The two exchanged vows, kissed, and were pronounced husband and wife! While we snapped some more photos of the gorgeous bride and groom inside the industrial modern venue, guests enjoyed cocktail hour outside. What a perfect area to hang out, and not to mention, take photos with some great natural lighting! The greenery walls lining the area really made the guests and our bride and groom pop in pictures.
We moved back inside for some wonderful toasts, laughter, eating, and dancing. Empyrean catered the fabulous dinner, and Sassie Cakes provided the delicious cake! Autumn & Grant then danced the night away with their closest friends and family.
This exceptional Elysean wedding was one to remember. We are so honored Autumn & Grant chose us to be part of their most important day. We wish them all the best as they start their life together in St. Louis!
