MeMe & David are married! Remember these two from their ADORABLE Cincinnati engagement session?! Now they’re married, and we were so lucky to capture their Freemasons Hall wedding. Read on to see more of their big day…

To start out the day, our bride and her bridesmaids got ready at the Jonathon Oaks Country Club… aka MeMe’s parents’ house! We had a blast making TikToks with the girls. Plus, MeMe showed off her eagle dance moves! The whole day was so much fun from start to finish. With the help of her mom and bridesmaids, MeMe got in her gorgeous gown, and we took absolutely stunning bridal portraits of her. After that, she had a touching first look with her dad!

We then captured photos of our groom and his groomsmen getting ready. Then, it was time for the ceremony! Guests arrived at St. Charles Church and took their seats and awaited the beautiful bride to walk down the aisle to her handsome husband. MeMe’s dad handed her off to David, and away they went to be wed! Their ceremony was filled with so much love. They exchanged vows, rings, and kissed, and were pronounced husband and wife!

Following their beautiful wedding ceremony, our couple endured the chilly weather to allow us to capture the gorgeous fall colors in their portraits. Just look at the trees! We absolutely love when the leaves change. Our couple’s wedding colors were stunning, especially against the fall leaves. We had so much fun taking photos of our couple with their families and wedding party. And, MeMe & David brought their dog to photos; so adorable!

Then, it was time to party! We headed over to Freemasons Hall to have their amazing reception. The celebration started out with awesome speeches, sweet first dances, and a precious cake cutting. Then, it was time to turn up the party! They had one of the most hoppin’ dance floors of the season! MeMe does an awesome Melissa McCarthy impression, dance moves included. RnB Sound provided the music, and they crushed it! Everyone danced the night away celebrating MeMe & David’s marriage.

MeMe & David are so great to work with, and we are so lucky to capture their love story. We love these guys and had so much fun capturing their Freemasons Hall wedding day. We wish them all the best in their marriage!

Our bride Becca grew up going to the lake all the time, and always dreamt of getting married on the lake… mission accomplished! Their ceremony and reception were both held at the beautiful Oakwood Resort which sits right on the lake. They also got ready at the venue. Becca’s maid of honor owns Blush Bridal & Beauty Boutique in downtown Fort Wayne, so she did hair and makeup! The girls’ gorgeous dresses were from there as well.

Guests took their seats and the wedding party took their places, along with our groom. Then, Becca’s dad walked her down the aisle to her soon-to-be-husband! He handed her off to Joey, and then they had a beautiful ceremony. Once they exchanged vows and rings, they were pronounced husband and wife!

After their ceremony, we took family and wedding party photos and then focused on our bride and groom. The lake makes for absolutely gorgeous photos! These two are naturals in front of the camera and are so much fun to capture. Another fun aspect to the day – we were honored to not only capture their photos, but their wedding video as well, through Big Burrito Creative! Once we got photos and videos of the newlyweds, it was time to start the party. They had the awesome band, Night to Remember, play at their reception! The band filled the night with so much excitement. Their DJ WRUF, Rufus Ayres, was also fantastic! Becca & Joey had so many friends and family there celebrating with them – it was amazing.

They had their ceremony and reception at the Allen County Sheriff Reserve Hall. At the beginning of the day, we took photos of the girls in their adorable matching robes outside!

We went back outside for a sweet first look between Caitlin & Andy. Their reactions were so genuine and loving! One of the best parts of any wedding day is witnessing the groom seeing his bride for the first time!

After their first look, we headed into downtown Fort Wayne for some fun bridal party photos. We love downtown during this time of year – the leaves are starting to change, giving us all the fall vibes! We found some awesome photo spots there, including one of the infamous alleyway murals. Caitlin & Andy looked so great against the vibrant colors! Then, it was time to head back to the venue to watch Caitlin & Andy tie the knot!

After the lovely ceremony, we dodged the rain once again and captured family photos outside. Then, it was time to celebrate!

It was so sweet – we all had tears in our eyes!

Through their ceremony, they partook in their first communion as husband and wife, exchanged vows, and placed their wedding bands on each other’s hands. They kissed and were pronounced husband and wife! We stuck around to take family photos at the church, along with some gorgeous veil photos outside the church. Then, the wedding party hopped on a party bus! We met them in downtown Carmel to capture more wedding party photos and couple portraits. Talk about a sharply dressed wedding party – check out the stunning colors and Olivia’s insanely gorgeous dress!

It was then time for their reception, held at The Bluffs at Conner Prairie. Guests arrived and enjoyed passed hors-d’oeuvres during cocktail hour. Then, Olivia & Vince made their grand entrance!

Then, it was time for dancing! Olivia & Vince shared a lovely first dance. After they danced, it was Olivia and her dad’s turn. They started dancing to their song, and then the music switched to Renegade, and everyone in the venue pulled out Terrible Towels and started waving them around! Olivia and her family are huge Pittsburgh Steelers fans, so this was such a special moment for them. Then, Vince and his mom shared a beautiful dance. The DJ shared Olivia & Vince’s amazing love story, and then, it was time to party!

Their dance floor was on fire the whole night, and they even did a traditional Polka bridal dance. They had an awesome photobooth backdrop with an LED name sign and some delicious donuts for dessert! They even had late-night snacks! Before the night was over, Olivia & Vince had a streamer exit. It made for some epic photos!
