Joanna & Russell // Country Club Wedding

Joanna and Russell are married! You might remember them from their super sweet fall engagement session last year. If not, click here (CLICK ME) to read about their engagement and see all of those adorable pictures. Our awesome team of associate shooters captured their wedding day! Read on to learn about this adorable Fort Wayne Country Wedding and see all of the highlights.

The day started at the Courtyard by Marriott hotel in downtown Fort Wayne. Joanna and her awesome group of bridesmaids prepared for the wedding day in a beautiful hotel suite. Russell and his groomsmen got ready next door at the Hampton Inn & Suites! We got photos of Joanna and her bridesmaids in their super cute pajamas, then photos of Joanna getting her dress. Of, course we captured details, jewelry, and a sweet first look with her and her dad! After getting photos of Joanna, we headed over to the hotel that Russell and his groomsmen were at to grab some photos of the guys! Not before long, it was time to head over to the courthouse!

Everyone met up over at the beautiful Allen County Courthouse in downtown Fort Wayne. When Joanna arrived, Russell was waiting for her outside the doors of the Courthouse for their first look! Joanna walked up and hugged Russell from behind, then their eyes met. After their sweet first look, we took Joanna and Russell around the outside of the courthouse for portraits. Then we brought their wedding party outside! After some portrait time, we took a few family photos then waited for the ceremony to begin!

Family, friends, and guests filled the beautiful, historic space and nerves and excitement were high! One by one, pairs of bridesmaids and groomsmen walked down the aisle, preparing the way for Joanna. Joanna and her dad met Russell at the front of the ceremony at the very center of the courthouse. Joanna’s dad gave her away and placed her hand in Russells! This brought some smiles and laughter from all, even Joanna, Russell, and her dad chuckled (see picture below). After some sweet vows, the cord of three strands ceremony, and the exchange of wedding bands, Joanna and Russell were pronounced Husband and Wife! They kissed and made their way back down the aisle.

After the ceremony, we took the remaining family portraits then all headed over to the beautiful Fort Wayne Country Club! This is a such a wonderful wedding venue – It has amazing food and staff and can accommodate large weddings. Joanna, Russell, family, and friends gathered for some toasts, dinner, and a celebration of their new marriage. Everyone danced all evening long and had a wonderful time celebrating.

This Fort Wayne Country Club wedding was a dream! Everything was decorated so beautifully and thoughtfully, from the s’mores bar to the unique guestbook of post cards. Our awesome team of associates loved capturing Joanna and Russell’s wedding day. We hope you cherish these photos for years to come!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Hillary & Ethan // Indianapolis Wedding

Hillary & Ethan // Indianapolis Wedding

Hillary and Ethan are hitched! You may remember them from their adorable Indianapolis engagement session – Click here for all those sweet details and photos (CLICK ME). This Indianapolis wedding was one for the books! Food trucks, great wedding party, and loads of fun! Read on for all the details… and photos!

hillary and Ethan’s day started by getting ready at the church, Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church. Hillary and her sisters and bridesmaids laughed all morning while they got ready. Hair? Check. Makeup? Check. Dress? Check. After Hillary’s jewelry, veil, garter, and other accessories were added, her full bridal look was complete! She was ready for their wedding day. We checked in on Ethan and captured some of him getting ready too. At this point, he is ready to see his bride! We took some photos of Ethan with his groomsmen at this time too – The fall colors were awesome! Before the sweet first look with Ethan, Hillary went outside for a first look with her dad. Let us tell you – It was very sweet.

Ethan waited for Hillary by the prettiest red trees outside of the church. Soon enough, Hillary walked up, gave Ethan a hug from behind, and then their eyes met. Nothing but smiles from these two! After some sweet private portraits of these two, we all headed inside for the ceremony! As everyone found their seats, bridesmaids, groomsmen, parents, and family began to walk down the aisle and find their places. Then Hillary and her dad made their entrance. Arm in arm, they made their way down the aisle where Ethan was waiting. Hillary’s dad gave her away, and the two stood in front of all of their friends and family, said their vows, and kissed! The two were married!

After the ceremony, we headed outside the church for a few more photos then headed to downtown Noblesville for some more! We found some sweet spots for portraits and explored some new places with this awesome group. After photos, we headed to the reception at the Bluffs at Conner Prairie, an awesome Ritz Charles venue! There were fun toasts, amazing food, and some awesome dancing. Did we mention the food? Yeah, it was amazing. At the end of the night, Hillary and Ethan treated guests to a food truck for a late night snack. That was also very tasty!

Capturing this Indianapolis wedding was such a fun experience! We loved working this fun group of people and awesome couple. We hope you enjoy your photos for years to come! We wish you guys all the love and luck on this new shared journey together. Congrats!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Danielle & Bernie // Union 12 Wedding

Remember Danielle and Bernie from their beautiful downtown Fort Wayne engagement session. Well if not, you can see all of those photos here (CLICK ME). We had so much fun capturing their engagement. So we knew their Union 12 wedding would the same! It was pretty stormy on their wedding day, but these two, their families, and friends made the most out of it! Read on for all the sweet details…

After getting hair and makeup done, Danielle slipped into her dress and her mom helped her get into it. Danielle was surrounded by all of her super awesome bridesmaids who helped her with her jewelry, garter, shoes, and veil – We love helpful bridesmaids! After completing her perfect bridal look, we took some pretty portraits by the window. After a first look with her dad and step dad, Danielle patiently waited for her first look with Bernie. We headed inside Union 12 where Bernie was getting ready. After getting some portraits of Bernie, it was time for their first look!

Since it was rainy at this time, we took these two love birds under the awesome covered patio at Union 12 for their first look and for some portrait time. And wow, what a first look. We don’t think Bernie could gave been smiling any bigger! Before the ceremony, we were able to complete some portraits and wedding party pictures! What happened next? You guessed it. The ceremony!

Danielle waited inside the beautiful getting ready home on union 12’s property. As guests were seated and the wedding party were in their places, Danielle and her dads made their way through the rain, into the doors of Union 12, and down the beautifully decorated aisle. Bernie anxiously and excitedly waited at the alter for his bride! After vows, a tying of 3 cords, and an exchange of rings, these two were pronounced husband and wife! They celebrated and smiled all down the aisle.

We took Danielle and Bernie outside for portraits this time around! Even though it was raining, it wasn’t quite as stormy. These two were troopers through the whole day – It was so sweet. After some portraits, we headed inside for dinner, toasts, and the reception! The food for the day was done by the amazing team at Empyrean Events and Catering while the florals were done by the awesome Empyrean Designs. After some fun toasts, cake cutting, and first dances, it was time to party!

Danielle and Bernie’s wedding day was so beautiful despite the stormy weather. Everything about their day was so fun and memorable! We loved capturing this union 12 wedding. We hope you enjoy your photos for years to come!

Sara & Ian // Roanoke Indiana Wedding

Sara and Ian are married! You may remember this sweet couple from their fun carnival engagement, but if not you can read all about that here (CLICK ME). You can learn a little bit about these two and see their engagement photos! We loved photographing this sweet Roanoke Indiana Wedding. Read on to see all of the magic and sweet moments of their wedding day!

The first time we photographed Sara and Ian, it was WAY too cold. We were all bundled up and numb to the core! During that session, Sara and Ian decided to make it a mini session, and we would continue the session on a warmer day! The second time we photographed them, it was way too hot. in fact, there was a heat advisory across northeast Indiana! But on their wedding day, the weather could not have been more perfect. It was sunny and pleasantly chilly with a breeze. Okay, it was a little more than breezy, but really, it was a beautiful fall day. We even got a stellar sunset at the end of the night!

Sara got ready with all the special ladies in her life! What we loved about this girl squad was just how helpful all of her bridesmaids were. One would be ready to put the veil in while another was ready with a can of hair spray and bobby pins. There was nothing but support coming from these awesome ladies! After getting into her dress, Sara was helped with all of her accessories and final details. We headed outside for some bridesmaids photos than waited for the ceremony!

While the girls were getting ready, Ian and his guys changed into some suits and were ready for the day! After getting ready, we took the groomsmen outside for some more photos, then it was time for the ceremony!

Bridesmaids walked down the aisle one by one after guests were seated in the pews. Next came the sweet ring bearer, then Sara and her dad. Ian was just in awe of his bride. After some vows and the exchange of rings, Sara and Ian were married! They kissed and happily went down the aisle.

After the ceremony and family portraits concluded, we headed to downtown Roanoke which was adorned with mums and fall colors. Portrait time with this group was fun and easy – It was just such a pleasant day and great group of people to work with. We then headed over to the reception at the Charles of Fort Wayne,  a beautiful and newly renovated wedding venue.

These two followed some sweet traditions of cake cutting and first dances. Some toasts were given and friends and family danced the whole night long. This wedding was fun, easy going, and really sweet to witness. We loved capturing this Roanoke Indiana Wedding. We hope you both live happily ever after and enjoy your photos for years to come!

Meg & Nick // Fort Wayne Country Club Wedding

Meet Meg and Nick! We have known Meg for quite awhile – We photographed her sister Ellie’s wedding! See if you can spot Meg in any of their wedding photos (CLICK ME). This Fort Wayne Country Club wedding was so fun to capture – We love when we get the opportunity to work with the same family again. Keep reading on to learn about all the details from this sweet day and to see Meg and Nick’s wedding photos!

You may not recognize these two, and that’s because we weren’t able to do an engagement session with them! Nick is in the military, so coordinating travel plans across the country for an engagement session proved to be difficult. Rather than adding any stress on to wedding planning, we all decided it would be best if we kept things as simple as possible. They ended up having someone local do their engagement photos, while we capture their big day!

Their day started at the beautiful Fort Wayne country club. This venue is one of our favorites because of all of the awesome amenities it offers on a wedding day. From awesome getting ready spaces to amazing food, the Fort Wayne Country Club has it all. Meg had her hair and makeup done, then her mom helped her into her dress. Of course, she was surround by her sister Ellie and her other bridesmaids. They wore beautiful maroon colored bridesmaids dress, all different styles. After Meg was completely ready, she headed outside to where Nick was waiting for her – Time for the first look! Meg walked up behind Nick, tapped him on the shoulder, and they both smiled from ear to ear. It was about as cute as could be! Nick was wowed!

After the first look at the Fort Wayne Country Club, we all headed over to the beautiful Allen County Courthouse for the ceremony in the party bus. The courthouse is one of Fort Wayne’s most beautiful places to get married. From art mural covered ceilings to grand marble pillars, the courthouse has a charming and historic atmosphere perfect for any wedding ceremony. Before the ceremony, we took a few photos upstairs at the courthouse, then everyone headed to the first floor for the ceremony. Once every was in place, Meg and her dad walked down the aisle. Meg and Nick met at the front, made vows, exchanged rings, and kissed! They’re husband and wife!

After the ceremony, we headed around to a couple different spots in downtown Fort Wayne – the golden doors of the Lincoln Tower and Bank, in front of the courthouse, and by one of Fort Wayne’s many art murals. Before finishing up wedding party pictures, Meg and Nick popped some bottles of champagne to ring in their new marriage (see the adorable pictures below). After portrait time, we all headed back to the awesome Fort Wayne Country Club where guests were waiting for their arrival!

Once everyone made it to Fort Wayne Country Club, the wedding party made their grand, and funny, entrances. Meg and Nick were announced as Mr. and Mrs. and found their way to the cake table! After a sweet cake cutting, Meg’s dad gave an awesome welcome toast. Dinner was served, then Meg’s sister Ellie and Nick’s best man gave two awesome speeches. After this, Meg and Nick plated the shoe game, which drew many laughs and sweet moments. The dance floor opened soon after and their friends and families danced all evening long!

It was a wonderful day and super fun reception. We loved capturing Meg and Nick’s Fort Wayne Country Club wedding – what a fun day! We hope you enjoy your wedding photos for years to come!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn
