Beth & Ryan // Fort Wayne Winter Wedding

Beth & Ryan // Fort Wayne Winter Wedding

Welcome 2020! It is our privilege to introduce our first Mr. and Mrs. of the new year. Beth and Ryan got married on a beautiful January day in Fort Wayne. You may remember these two from their adorable summer engagement, but if not, click here (CLICK ME)! Now for all the sweet details (and photos) from this beautiful Fort Wayne Winter Wedding…

We met Beth through her mom! She has been our dental hygienist for years and years. Over all this time, we had heard so much about this valedictorian daughter and about how awesome and talented she is. So when we found out that Beth was engaged, we just knew we had to be a part of their wedding story.

Beth and her bridesmaids spent the morning getting ready at a family friend’s salon, Shalorton & Co. Hair Design. The salon owner was super nice and accommodating for us, whether we needed to move around some furniture or adjust the lights for the perfect photo. While getting ready here, all of the girls brushed their teeth and smiled for the camera (they just had to do it for Beth’s dental hygienist mom)! After finishing hair and makeup, everyone headed over to the Maplewood Mennonite Church where Beth and Ryan would soon be married.

Beth put on her dress at the church with her mom and bridesmaids. Her bridesmaids wore beautiful dark red dresses while Beth, of course, wore a beautiful white dress full of pretty lace detail. After Beth’s bridal look was complete, she had a first look with her dad. Then it was ceremony time!

Guests found their seats and the wedding began. Parents were escorted down the aisle, then the wedding party, and of course, the sweet little flower girl. Beth and her dad were next! They met Ryan at the end of the aisle, where Beth’s dad gave her away. Beth and Ryan exchanged vows, rings, sang worship songs with the friends and family, kissed, and were married!

Right after the ceremony, we headed to one of our favorite spots in Fort Wayne for some portraits of Beth and Ryan and their wedding party. Usually we take family portraits immediately following the ceremony (when there is no first look), but because it’s January and it gets dark so quickly, we started with portraits instead. We got some photos of them with their wedding party before the sun went down, then headed to Purdue University of Fort Wayne for more portraits. It started to snow at the end of our time here, so we were so happy to capture them with a little snow!

Once we all were at the Don Halls Guest House for the reception, we took family photos in the beautiful hearth room. The reception hall was nice and spacious, and full of charm, history, and character. Their were lights strung across the whole room which added so much magic to the space. There were fun toasts, yummy desserts (cake, cookies, donuts, and more), and lots of dancing. This was one beautiful winter wedding and an awesome way to kick of our 2020 wedding season!

We loved getting to photograph Beth, Ryan, and their friends and family. It was a beautiful day full of love and celebration. Thank you for letting us capture your big day! We hope you enjoy your photos for years to come!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Courtney & Matt // Fort Wayne Winter Wedding

Happy New Year! As the first blog of 2020, we would like to share our last wedding of 2019. Courtney and Matt got married on a beautiful, warm December day – This Fort Wayne winter wedding was romantic, fun, and special. Before you read about their wedding, check out their engagement first (CLICK ME). Details and photos are below!

Courtney and Matt’s day began at the United Methodist Church in New Haven, Indiana. Courtney spent the morning getting ready with her bridesmaids and all the other important women in her life. There was food, cheers, and lots of laughs from this fun group. Everyone was simply cheerful and ready for Courtney and Matt’s big day. After Courtney was completely ready, she had a first look with her dad. And of course, it was very sweet! In another part of the church, Matt and his guys relaxed and eventually got dressed in their suave wedding day attire. Matt’s suit jacket was different from his groomsmen! It had an awesome paisley design, while his groomsmen wore black. Courtney’s bridesmaids wore red dresses, perfect for the holiday season.

Before the ceremony, we were able to knock out photos of Courtney with her bridesmaids and some of the family portraits! Before we knew it, it was time for the ceremony! Friends and family gathered in the pews and waited in excitement for Courtney to walk down the aisle. Eventually, it was time! Courtney and her dad met Matt at the end of the aisle and the ceremony commenced. The two made their vows, kissed, and were married!

After the ceremony, we went outside the church for portraits of the newlyweds and for wedding party photos! We went inside the church shortly after for additional family portraits, then took some night portraits on the sweet streets of downtown New Haven and at a park with pretty Christmas lights. The reception was just down the street! Courtney, Matt, and their wedding party made their entrances, found their seats, ate dinner, and shared some awesome toasts. Family and friends danced and celebrated all evening long. One groomsman even split his pants dancing! It was a small and intimate reception full of love and joy.

This Fort Wayne winter wedding was nothing but romantic and fun! Courtney and Matt were so laid back and fun – an absolute pleasure to work with. We are so honored to have a been a part of Courtney and Matt’s big day, and we are so excited to share some photos. We wish you both happiness and love! Happy New Year to our latest newlyweds!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

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 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
