Amanda & Grant // Big Long Lake Wedding

Amanda & Grant // Big Long Lake Wedding

Amanda and Grant are married! It was a beautiful day full of love and lots of awesome people. Per usual, COVID-19 messed up original plans for these two’s wedding day. Despite this, Amanda and Grant made the most of it and had a beautiful wedding!! We are so excited to share photos from this Big Long Lake Wedding! Read on for more of these two…

Amanda and Grant’s wedding day started at the South Milford Church of Christ. Once Amanda was completely ready, we took her and her beautiful bridesmaids outside for some photos. We were also able to knock out some family photos! Amanda and her bridesmaids went inside to rest before the ceremony, then we grabbed Grant and his groomsmen for some photos of the guys!  Their light gray suits looked awesome! Before we knew it, it was time for the much anticipated ceremony.

The ceremony was so sweet. Amanda and Grant saw each other for the first time while Amanda walked down the aisle, so you can imagine the emotions. Oh wait… you don’t have to imagine – There are photos to show it! The pictures of these sweet moments really sum up the emotions of the entire day: overwhelming happiness and excitement! Amanda and Grant exchanged vows, rings, completed a sand ceremony, and kissed. The two were officially husband and wife!

After the ceremony, we finished up any remaining family photos outside the church, then headed over to Big Long Lake for wedding party portraits! It was so golden at the time for photos and we were loving it – We were able to capture such a fun veil shot! Portrait time was funny, sweet, and so romantic. We couldn’t over these two and the gorgeous scenery of the lake. Golden hour also contributed to the awesomeness!

After portrait time, we headed back to the church for the reception. The reception originally was supposed to be somewhere else, but because of COVID, the church offered a better solution for guest space! There were funny toasts, a yummy breakfast dinner, and so much dancing. These two and their families, made the most out of COVID wedding, that’s for sure! It was a blast.

We loved capturing Amanda and Grant’s Big Long Lake wedding. It was the sweetest day and so anticipated! To Amanda and Grant, we hope you two enjoy life together and make the most out of everyday together. Thank you for trusting us to capture your big day! Love you guys!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Cassidy & Thompson // Ken Dale Farms Wedding

Cassidy & Thompson // Ken Dale Farms Wedding

Cassidy and Thompson are married! These two got married on Cassidy’s family Farm, Ken Dale Farms. This old new venue was amazing. Her family was working on its’ construction every day leading up to the wedding to make sure it was all ready for the big day! Read on to learn more about this sweet family farm wedding and see our favorite photos…

Cassidy and her bridesmaids got ready in an adorable bridal suite, a cabin across from the barn over looking the woods. It was so sweet and had everything a person could want for getting ready on their wedding day! After both Cassidy and Thompson were dressed and ready, we set them up for their first look down the hill in the wooded area. These two were all smiles, of course! This led into some portrait time and wedding party photos! After that, Cassidy went back inside the cabin for a first look with her dad. These are some of the sweetest moments to capture on a wedding day. Everyone rested for a little bit, then the ceremony started!

The ceremony was inside the big red barn! It was stunning. There was so much natural light inside and the space was decorated with flowers by Rose’s Bouquets, a wedding only florist in Fort Wayne. After guests found their seats and the wedding party were in their places, the big barn doors opened and Cassidy and her dad walked through. Cassidy and Thompson exchanged vows, rings, and kissed! They were officially married!

After the ceremony, we took family photos! During that time, the dj was playing cocktail hour music. One of the songs just happened to be Cassidy’s parents first dance song at their wedding. They slow danced together so sweetly off to the side. We are so thankful we were able to capture that moment – It was a very memorable moment for us from the day.

Family photos wrapped up pretty quickly, so we were able to have some more portrait time with Cassidy and Thompson! It was the most stunning golden hour. We took them out in the big field across the street and captured some MAGIC. These are seriously some of our favorite photos from Cassidy and Thompson’s big day! After portraits, we took a group photo of everybody at the wedding in front of the beautiful Ken Dale Farm Barn. The rest of the evening was filled with sweet (and hilarious) toasts, lots of dancing, and yummy food. This was such a fun wedding to photograph!

These two were so easy to photograph. All smiles and so much chemistry. It was just such a happy day. Every person in Cassidy’s family contributed so many hours into the construction and finishing touches on the barn, just for their wedding day. It was truly a work of love, and we are super thankful to be the first people to photograph at this sweet historic family farm. To Cassidy and Thompson, we wish you guys a happy marriage with good health and many, many happy memories. We hope you love your wedding photos!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Kayla & Ben // Swan Lake Resort Wedding

Kayla and Ben are married! This fun wine-loving couple got married at the beautiful Swan Lake Resort in Plymouth Indiana on 10/10/20. It was such a beautiful day! Read along for more details from Kayla and Ben’s wedding day and see our favorite photos from the day…

You may remember these two cutie pies from their beautiful Two EE’s and Huntington Indiana. If you want to see those photos and learn more about Kayla and Ben, click here (CLICK ME)!

Swan Lake was a beautiful backdrop for this gorgeous wedding. Kayla and Ben started off their mornings in some of the beautiful suites at the resort, Kayla and her girls in the bridal suite and Ben with his guys in another suite. While the guys hung out and relaxed, Kayla and her bridal party spent the morning getting their hair and makeup was done by the awesome Red Stiletto Artistry out of Fort Wayne. They are the best on-site makeup and hair team ever! Before getting dressed, the girls popped some bubbly on the patio – It was so cute! Once everyone was ready, Kayla did a super sweet first look with her dad. These are always some of the sweetest moments of a wedding day.

Before we knew it, it was time for the ceremony. Kayla and Ben chose to not to see each other before it, so you can imagine (and see in the photos below) how sweet of a moment seeing each other was! They got married in the gazebo underneath beautiful towering trees and landscaped gardens at Swan Lake. And we have to mention the gorgeous floral installations by Rose’s Bouquets, a Fort Wayne wedding only florist. It was such a stunning ceremony and setting. Kayla and Ben read vows, exchanged rings, and kissed! The two were officially husband and wife. We’ll let the photos tell the rest!

After the ceremony and family portraits, we took Kayla, Ben, and their wedding party out for some incredible photos around the golf course at Swan Lake Resort. We were on the hunt for beautiful fall trees and found them! These were some of our favorite fall photos of the season. After wedding party portraits, we did some portrait time with the newlyweds. They were so easy to work with. They were so comfortable in front of the camera, shared tons of chemistry, and laughed a bunch, making photos easy as pie.

Following portrait time with an awesome reception in Swan Lake Resorts ballroom. You almost forgot that you were in the middle of farmland in Indiana – It felt like a 5-star hotel in Chicago. After a great dinner, some toasts, and the first dances, everyone kicked the night off with the awesome Jason from Quattro Systems DJs. Rather than serving the traditional wedding cake, they served slushy Italian ice! Yum!

Kayla and Ben’s Swan Lake Resort wedding was an autumn dream! We loved capturing their big day and seeing all of the love their families shared for each other. We wish you two nothing but love and happiness as you start this new path of marriage. We love you guys!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Emily & Zach // White Rose Barn Wedding

Emily & Zach // White Rose Barn Wedding

Emily and Zach are married! You may remember these guys from their beautiful Purdue University engagement session, but if not, check them out here (CLICK ME)! Okay… Now that you’ve seen their engagement photos, please enjoy reading about all the sweet, memorable moments from their White Rose Event Center Wedding day! Also, make sure to check out some of our favorite photos below.

Emily and Zach are seriously one of the cutest couples we’ve ever met. They were so genuine and so goofy and sweet. It was a blast capturing their wedding day! We met up with them at the beautiful White Rose Event center, one of the most beautiful barn venues in the area. It was a very warm, beautiful summer day – It could not have been prettier! The girls got ready at a family home, where they shared mimosas and laughs. Once at the venue, the girls headed inside the getting ready house. This is where Emily put on her dress! Her mom and Zach’s mom helped her – It was super sweet. From there, Emily headed into another room to do a first look with her dad, then headed outside so her bridesmaids and sisters could see her full bridal look!

Zach and his groomsmen got ready inside the reception space, where they hung out and prepared for the fun day ahead. Then it was finally time for Emily and Zach’s first look. They met under a beautiful tree near the venue over looking the fields and beautiful property of White Rose. After an incredibly emotional and sweet first look, we took some portraits of these two and their bridal party, then got ready for the ceremony! The ceremony was outside the venue near the edge of the property. There was beautiful arch way covered in flowers and greenery behind Emily and Zach. The two exchanged vows, rings, and kissed! And just like that, after years of waiting, they were officially husband and wife! Now it was time to party.

The reception was great! So many laughs and and moments to capture. The toasts at this wedding probably set the bar for the most incredible surprise we’ve ever witnessed. Two years before the wedding the groom and the bride‘s grandmother write her a letter that he sealed and kept secret until the wedding day. The brides father read it aloud not leaving a dry eye in the house as we heard her deceased grandmother‘s words. It meant so much to her. Not gonna lie, we might have shed a tear or two. It was really one of sweetest moments to witness on their wedding day.

This wedding was super special to us because not only did we get to capture Emily and Zach’s wedding and families, but we also got to see quite a few of our past and future couples! We got to catch up with 2 of our past couples and 1 upcoming couple that we are photographing this year. Including Emily and Zach, that makes 4 Dustin and Corynn brides and grooms at a single wedding – That’s a record!

We loved getting to capture this amazingly sweet wedding day. The White Rose was decked out to perfection, and Emily and Zach were a pleasure to work with. Thank you for trusting us to capture the memories and moments of your wedding day – We love you guys!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

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!

Abby & Weston // Family Farm Wedding

Abby & Weston // Family Farm Wedding

Abby and Weston are married! Wow, what a fun wedding. You know those weddings where everyone is super relaxed, and just happy to be around those they love? Well, that was exactly how these two were! We had a blast photographing this wedding, but before you read on and see their wedding photos, you have to read about their awesome engagement session with us! You can see all of their engagement photos, learn a little bit about these two, learn how they met, and how we met them all right here on our blog! Click here to see for yourself (CLICK ME)!

Abby and Weston’s day began by getting ready with their friends and family at the Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Fort Wayne. The church had awesome getting ready rooms, perfect for wedding day prep! When it was time, Abby’s mom and super awesome bridesmaids helped her into her wedding dress and added all the final details: veil, jewelry, and garters! Before the ceremony, we took some photos outside of the church: Abby with her bridesmaids and Weston with his groomsmen. Not at the same time, however, because these two wanted to wait until the ceremony to see each other. How sweet! After capturing some photos of this awesome group of people, it was ceremony time!

These two had a very joyous wedding – There were lots of laughs, smiles, and a lighthearted fun in the room during the ceremony. It was really a celebration! After these two tied the knot, it was time for more photos – yay! We took photos with, you guessed it, a shiny, new, John Deere Tractor! We absolutely adored using it in Abby and Weston’s photos – It just fit their personalities and roots so much! After photos, everyone hopped on the party bus and headed to the reception!

The reception was at the Mirage Banquet Hall, a large venue in Decatur, Indiana equipped with a full bar, in-house catering, and an awesome atmosphere. Abby and Weston danced with friends and family, laughed at several toasts, and enjoyed their wedding day to the fullest. We’re so excited to share this awesome couple and their wedding photos. Congratulations, you two! We wish you a happy marriage!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

P.s. A John Deere Tractor is the perfect accessory for any bride on her wedding day!
