Makayla & Zach // Fremont Wedding

Makayla & Zach // Fremont Wedding

Makayla & Zach are married! You may remember these two from their epically beautiful Michigan dunes engagement session. Now, read on to see more of their beautiful Fremont wedding day!

To start the day, Makayla and her girls got ready at her uncle’s house in Michigan. They wore matching robes and socks – such a big hit! It’s so fun when our bride and her bridesmaids coordinate getting-ready outfits. Once we took photos of the girls, we headed to the venue to capture photos of Zach and his groomsmen getting ready!

Makayla & Zach’s wedding was held at the adorable Heritage Barn Event Center in Fremont, Indiana. This was such a beautiful, intimate location for Makayla & Zach! The two had an outdoor wedding ceremony outside behind the barn. Zach built the arbor, which they used as a background, himself! Check out our photos – it was so pretty. Also, their florist absolutely knocked it out of the park. The florals added to the arbor were just stunning!

Their ceremony was gorgeous, despite the crazy wind! Makayla & Zach were troopers throughout the day through the chilly weather. Following the ceremony, we captured family portraits, couple portraits, and bridal party photos. Their venue offered such amazing natural backgrounds for photos!

Then, it was time for the reception! Their reception was held inside the barn, which was insanely pretty! We had an awesome night celebrating them. Through speeches, first dances, and a cake battle, it was perfect for Makayla & Zach! Their DJ brought the party. I Do Crew DJs always does a fantastic job with reception music! Before the night was over, we took Makayla & Zach back outside for those gorgeous sunset photos.

Makayla & Zach’s Fremont wedding was so much fun! We were honored to be part of their big day, and wish them all the best as they start their marriage.

 

Cheers,

Becca & Joey // Oakwood Resort Wedding

Becca & Joey tied the knot! They’re officially husband and wife! Their Oakwood Resort wedding was stunning and so much fun. We are so excited to share more of their big day with you…

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. The pretty florals were done by none other than Rose’s Bouquets!

We did a sweet first look with Becca and her dad, and then captured a few photos of the bridesmaids and groomsmen. Then, it was time for Becca & Joey to be wed! 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. The reception was the most epic party to celebrate their love!

Becca & Joey’s Oakwood Resort wedding was one to remember. We are honored to be part of their love story and are so excited for them to start their lives together!

Lauren & Tim // Auburn Cord Duesenberg Wedding

Lauren & Tim // Auburn Cord Duesenberg Wedding

Lauren & Tim are married! Their Auburn Cord Duesenberg wedding was so sweet and beautiful. We are so honored to share more with you…

Our bride Lauren got ready for the day at her bestie’s farmhouse in Auburn, Indiana. It was so sweet and personal! Once the girls were all ready for the day, we headed to the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum to have Lauren & Tim’s first look. Tim stood at the bottom of the grand staircase in the museum, and Lauren made her descent! He turned around and saw his bride for the first time, and they shared a beautiful first moment together.

We took photos of Lauren & Tim around the museum, and then did something fun, exciting, and new – we jumped on a trolley and went over to Country Heritage Winery for more photos! The winery was a beautiful spot for our couple and their wedding party. We captured amazing photos of them inside as well as outside in the vineyard! Then, it was time to head back to the museum for the ceremony.

Their ceremony was held on the grand steps of the museum. This is such a cool setting to have your wedding ceremony! One of their friends performed their ceremony, which is always so special. They exchanged vows and rings, kissed, and were pronounced husband and wife! After the ceremony, we captured family photos around the museum. Following these, the reception began!

Lauren & Tim’s reception was awesome. The food catered by Ceruti’s was scrumptious! Lauren’s family is originally from Pittsburgh, so in traditional Pennsylvanian fashion, they had a cookie table! They had about 1,500 cookies on this table – insane! In honor of Lauren’s grandma, they had her specialty waffle cookies, and we even got a ring shot with them!

During the reception, Lauren had an outfit change and switched dresses – always such a fun touch to the wedding! Their guests danced the night away, and we made sure to take our bride and groom outside to get our favorite fun sunset pictures to end the night.

Their Auburn Cord Duesenberg wedding was so much fun, and we loved being part of their big day. We wish them all the best as they start their marriage!

Hailey & Freddie // Lakeside Occasions Wedding

Hailey & Freddie // Lakeside Occasions Wedding

Freddie & Hailey are officially husband & wife! This beautiful, intimate Lakeside Occasions wedding was truly a gem. We loved being part of their most important day, and can’t wait to share more with you…

Lakeside Occasions was absolutely beautiful. The venue is the ultimate rustic, secluded barn wedding spot! It was a perfect place for Hailey & Freddie to celebrate their love. Their day started out with the bridesmaids and groomsmen getting ready in the most unique spots. Our bride and her bridesmaids got ready in the silo, which looked exactly like Rapunzel’s tower! It was magical. Then, our groom and his groomsmen got ready in a 50s style diner. This was so awesome! To calm any nerves before the wedding, they played some games of pool, too. We loved the unique photo opportunities these spots presented!

After we captured photos of Hailey with her bridesmaids and Freddie with his groomsmen, it was time for the two to be wed! Everyone took their places in the stunning outdoor setting. Despite the intense heat, Hailey & Freddie had a lovely outdoor ceremony at the gazebo, which faced the lake! The venue grounds were just gorgeous. Our couple made their forever promise to each other, kissed, and were pronounced husband and wife!

Following the ceremony, we walked around to a few different spots on the property to photograph Hailey & Freddie with their wedding party and their families. This wedding party was such a fun bunch! They made photos fantastic. We then continued taking photos of our newly married couple. The venue had great spots for pictures such as the barn, silo, and an adorable bridge!

Once we had taken photos of our couple, we headed inside the venue to party! They served a delicious dinner which included amazing cupcakes of about 10 different flavors for dessert! Hailey & Freddie cut their wedding cake, danced together for the first time as husband and wife, and did the sweet father-daughter and mother-son dances. They also played the hilarious shoe game! These two are truly a blast. Then, it was party time! Hailey & Freddie had a great dance floor turnout, which made the night one to remember. Before the night was over, we took our couple back outside to take those romantic sunset photos!

Hailey & Freddie’s Lakeside Occasions wedding was truly an honor to capture. We are so happy for these two, and wish them all the best as they start their new marriage!

Cheers,

Greg & Brian // Oakwood Resort Wedding

Greg & Brian // Oakwood Resort Wedding

Our couple Greg & Brian officially tied the knot! These two had a beautiful Oakwood Resort wedding. We were so happy to be part of it, and are so excited to share the photos with you…

We were psyched to see these two again after their West Central engagement session. This Lake Wawasee wedding had been long-awaited. They are such a great couple, and we love being with them! They were married at Oakwood Resort, which offered an awesome space for getting ready. Everyone hung out and got ready for the big day together! Then, it was time to be wed.

The two were married by Greg’s childhood best friend, who wore a killer white jumpsuit! It was so special for them to be married by someone near and dear to their hearts. Greg & Brian had an unusual and super fun request – they invited all of the females to wear white! Since women are never allowed to wear white to a wedding, they thought it’d be fun to allow everyone to wear the usually forbidden color.

Both Greg & Brian hail from families of four sons. Thus, Greg’s side of the wedding party included his three brothers, and so did Brian’s, minus one. One of Brian’s brothers is in the military and was unable to attend, but thanks to technology, they were able to FaceTime him in so he could join in the celebration!

During the ceremony, Greg & Brian read their vows to one another and then exchanged rings. Then, they kissed, and were officially married! Following the ceremony, we captured photos of our grooms, their wedding party, and their families. Lake Wawasee offered such a great, natural spot for photos.

Then, it was time for toasts, food, and dancing. Their reception was held on the property underneath a gorgeous clear tent. It’s officially our favorite setting now! The lighting was exceptional under the tent. Plus, they had adorable string lights stretching from one end of the tent to the other. It gave the whole space such a cool effect! The dance floor was outside the tent in an open setting. They again strung lights over the dance floor, adding some flair and ambiance! During Brian’s mother-son dance, his mom was very emotional, and made us tear up! It was the sweetest, most heartfelt moment.

We lucked out with great weather all day. The sky was overcast and the temperatures were cool, making for a really enjoyable time. Toward the end of the reception, we took Greg & Brian out to do more photos. Once again, the lake was an awesome spot to capture those stunning night photos – just look at the pictures! We captured our couple by the glistening lake and under the romantic tent lighting.

It’s a small world after all – the same day Greg & Brian got married, our couple Kylie & Drake also got married. While we had to split up for these weddings, so did the guests! Brian and Drake were in residency together and invited many of the same friends, so guests had to split their time.

Greg & Brian were so easy to work with and such a joy to be around. We were so honored to be part of their Oakwood Resort wedding and wish them well as they begin their marriage together!

 

Cheers,

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
