Cayley & Dylan // Wells Street Bridge Wedding

Cayley & Dylan // Wells Street Bridge Wedding

Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Dylan & Cayley Harris! These two had a beautiful Wells Street Bridge wedding, and we were so honored to be part of it. We are so excited to share more with you…

They started getting ready for their big day at a friend’s house. We captured some amazing pictures of Cayley and her bridesmaids getting pampered up for the wedding! Once the girls helped Cayley get into her stunning strapless gown, we were off to see Cayley & Dylan’s first look! As Cayley approached Dylan, so many emotions were flooding through! She tapped him on the shoulder and he turned around to see his bride. His expression was priceless! Cayley & Dylan’s love is so evident and adorable.

After their first look, we took our couple around and captured sweet photos of them. Then, we took family photos and wedding party photos! It was then time to head to the Wells Street Bridge. Upon arriving there, we continued taking family photos. The bridge was beautifully decorated by the groom himself! He added roses to the pergola, making it picture-perfect for them. Then, guests started arriving, and it was time! Dylan waited for his bride at the altar and Cayley & her dad started their walk down the aisle. Cayley’s dad handed her off to be married to Dylan, and away they went!

Cayley & Dylan had a beautiful wedding ceremony, which included a unity sand ceremony. The weather was windy, but the rain held out, so we were thankful! Once these two vowed forever with one another, exchanged rings, and kissed, they were pronounced husband and wife! Following the ceremony, we walked around the tree canopy trail at Promenade Park to capture more gorgeous photos of our bride and groom. Then, it was time to party!

Their reception was held at the awesome Bergstaff Place by Ceruti’s. Cayley & Dylan made their grand entrance and were followed by beautiful toasts and first dances. Then… a cake war! These two had an epic cake battle. After they cut their wedding cake, Dylan got to grab half the cake and throw it at Cayley! He ended up slipping on the cake and wiping out, and took her down with him! It was hilarious and adorable all at the same time.

Live the Night Entertainment brought the music for both their ceremony and reception. They were so much fun! They knew how to get the crowd moving at all times. To get the dance floor started after the toasts, the DJ coordinated a dance battle! All the girls went to one side of the dance floor and the guys went to the other. They then battled it out to different songs! It was one of the coolest ways to get the party going.

Cayley & Dylan’s Wells Street Bridge wedding was one to remember. We are so happy for these two and are so grateful they asked us to be part of their love story!

 

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

You may remember these two from their adorable Cleveland Ohio engagement session. As you saw in their engagement photos, these two are huge Ohio State fans. Be sure to continue reading to see Natalie and her girls doing a familiar O-H-I-O pose in a few photos!

Their wedding day started with getting ready at the Hampton Inn in downtown Fort Wayne right by Parkview Field. Natalie and her bridesmaids had the cutest matching pajamas and socks! This is always an adorable touch for brides and their bridesmaids. They were such a fun group, too! The girls were dancing and singing and having a great time getting ready for Natalie & Josh’s wedding day. We captured photos of the girls in their pajamas, and then Natalie with her mom helping her get into her stunning wedding dress. Before she put her dress on, though, we had some fun taking pictures of her dress around the hotel! A special guest may have even popped into a dress photo…

Once we took photos of the guys helping Josh get ready as well, it was time for the first look! For Natalie & Josh’s first look, we headed outside the hotel in front of the Grand Wayne Center. This building has beautiful glass windows that make for a gorgeous photo background! Josh took his spot and Natalie slowly approached him, tapped his shoulder, and he turned around to see his stunning bride for the first time! We then walked around downtown to capture more photos of our bride and groom, along with their wedding party and parents.

Then, it was time for the ceremony! Their ceremony was held at the historic and beautiful Trinity English Lutheran Church in downtown Fort Wayne. It was a gorgeous ceremony in which Natalie & Josh exchanged rings, said their vows, and finally, kissed! They were pronounced husband and wife! We stayed in the pretty church to capture family photos, and of course, had to snag a few more of our bride and her husband!

We then arrived at Baker Street Station for their reception. This is always a fan favorite venue! It’s such a cool setting for a wedding reception. Natalie & Josh made their grand entrance, toasts were given, wedding cake was cut, and delicious food from Goeglein’s Catering was served. Then, Natalie & Josh had their adorable first dance, followed by Natalie’s dance with her dad and Josh’s dance with his mom. After those first dances, DJ Noise Pollution pumped up the party and got everyone on the dance floor!

Natalie & Josh’s Baker Street Station wedding was one to remember. We loved being part of their big day and are so excited for them as they begin their marriage!

Lauren and her bridesmaids started the day getting ready at Radical Babe Studios. We absolutely LOVED this space! There were so many different backdrops which made for amazing getting ready photos. The space was decorated so beautifully. It had a very natural theme to it and was so stunning, we couldn’t stop taking photos of our bride! The fabulous florals for Lauren & Chris’ wedding were done by the amazing Rose’s Bouquets. The girls had beautiful bouquets and the venue was decorated with gorgeous centerpieces and a floral wedding arch.

Once the girls were all ready for the day, we took photos of Chris and his groomsmen. Then, it was time for the big event! Their wedding was held at Bergstaff Place by Ceruti’s – such a beautiful venue! Guests took their seats and the wedding party took their positions at the front. Chris waited on his bride, and Lauren’s dad walked her down the aisle! Their ceremony was so sweet and full of love. Once the two exchanged rings and said their vows, they finally kissed and were pronounced husband and wife!

After the ceremony, Lauren & Chris and their wedding party hopped on the infamous white trolley. We then headed to the heart of downtown Fort Wayne to take photos! We photographed our couple in front of the lovely Lincoln Tower gold doors, the lawn of the Courthouse, and down Calhoun street. So many spots to hit up in our awesome city! Following photos, we headed to the venue and captured family photos. Then, it was time to party!

Lauren & Chris’ reception started out with their loving first dance. Then, they cut their wedding cake, had their beloved dances with their parents, and then started the party! Their DJ had an awesome mix of American and Mexican pop music. The dance floor was absolutely on fire! It was such a fun atmosphere – we were even dancing alongside the wedding guests (with our cameras of course)! Lauren & Chris did some crowd surfing – truly a blast. As the night ended, they had an adorable sparkler send-off outside of the venue. These are always so romantic!

Megan & Tyler // Goeglein’s Wedding

Introducing the new Mr. & Mrs. Tyler & Megan Werling! Their Goeglein’s wedding was so much fun to be part of. We’re so excited to share more of their wedding day with you!

We started the day with Megan and her bridesmaids as they got their finishing touches done for the big day. It was then time to get into their wedding attire, so Megan’s mom helped her get into her wedding dress. Megan’s dress was stunning, and their wedding party colors were fabulous and so pretty. Then, the big reveal to her bridesmaids! The girls’ reactions were so sweet. Megan then did a first look with her dad, and it was the cutest! They were both emotional and you can tell just how meaningful that special moment was to them. We grabbed some photos of Tyler getting ready as well, and then, it was time!

Guests arrived at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church for the ceremony and the wedding party walked down the aisle. Tyler took his place and waited on his bride, and then, the big moment! Megan’s dad walked her down the aisle to her husband-to-be. He handed her off to Tyler, and away they went to be married. Through the beautiful ceremony in which they exchanged rings and said their vows, they kissed, and were pronounced husband and wife!

Once their ceremony was done, we stayed in the church for family photos. After those, we went to Megan & Tyler’s first date location – Rack & Helen’s! They took a shot together, and we of course took so many photos around the bar. It was the cutest and meant so much to our couple to go back to the spot where it all began. On our way to the reception, we stopped at some cool photo spots to get more pictures. We took some epic photos of our couple Megan & Tyler, along with their whole wedding party!

Then, we arrived at Goeglein’s Catering for the reception. We heard awesome toasts (including one with a whole presentation!), watched Megan & Tyler cut their adorable cake, and ate some donuts! Then, Megan & Tyler had their lovely first dance, along with Megan’s dance with her dad and Tyler’s dance with his mom. After those dances, it was time for everyone to party! Megan did her bouquet toss and Tyler did the garter toss – crowd favorites! This was a crazy, wild group (in the best way!). They made the day super fun. We had an extremely great time hanging out with these people and celebrating Megan & Tyler!

Megan & Tyler’s Goeglein’s wedding was such a blast. We loved being part of their big day, and wish them all the best as they begin their marriage!

Alexa & Sam // Orchard Ridge Country Club Wedding

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.

Brooke & Holden // Goeglein’s Wedding

Brooke & Holden // Goeglein’s Wedding

Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Holden & Brooke Schaefer! These two are so kind, caring, and genuine, and we are so honored they chose us to photograph their love story. Check out more of their Goeglein’s wedding below!

Brooke & Holden got married at the beautiful Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. We started our day out here with some getting-ready photos. Brooke found her stunning, sparkly wedding dress from I Do Bridal Boutique. She looked like a true princess! Once our bride was in her dress and ready to go, she had a sweet first look with her bridesmaids! The looks on their faces were priceless. These moments with your best friends are ones you’ll remember forever! Then, Brooke headed over to do a first look with her groom Holden. As he turned around and saw his bride for the first time, so many emotions flooded through! The love Brooke & Holden share is so beautiful.

Guests started arriving, and then, it was time for their ceremony! Holden took his place at the altar and waited for his bride. Then, Brooke’s father walked her down the aisle, lifted her veil, and handed her off to her groom. They had a lovely ceremony in which they shared in their first communion together as husband and wife, exchanged vows and rings, and finally, kissed! They were then pronounced husband and wife!

Following the ceremony, we stayed in the gorgeous Cathedral and captured photos with Brooke & Holden and their families. We stepped outside and took some wedding party photos, along with some of our favorite, veil photos! When brides have long veils, we can create some truly amazing pictures with them. Then, our bride and groom and their wedding party hopped on a trolley! We met them over at Lakeside Rose Garden to take more pictures. Once they arrived, they broke out some awesome sunglasses! We had a blast taking photos with this crew.

It was then time to head to Goeglein’s for the reception! The wedding party made their grand entrance, followed by a welcome message from Brooke’s dad, a prayer, and then toasts. Both Brooke’s matron and maid of honor spoke about our lovely bride, and Holden’s best man spoke about him. After we ate a delicious dinner, they did the exciting dollar dash! We love this tradition. Following that, Brooke & Holden cut their wedding cake, and then went out to the dance floor to have their first dance. This was followed by Brooke’s sweet dance with her dad, and Holden’s sweet dance with his mom.

We took our bride and groom outside to photograph them in the beautiful area behind Goeglein’s. These two are naturals in front of the camera! They made it so easy and fun to capture their love. Then, we went back inside, and danced the night away with their closest friends and family!

Brooke & Holden’s Goeglein’s wedding day was wonderful. We had a blast with these two, and feel so lucky to have been part of their big day. We wish you guys all the best as you start your marriage!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn
