Kirsten and Troy are married! Their Paper Mill wedding touched our hearts in so many ways. Their day was so beautiful, and we were honored to be part of it. Read on to see more of their big day!

Their wedding was held at the fabulous Paper Mill on the Landing. This venue is so unique and trendy! We love capturing weddings here. We took adorable photos of our couple getting ready for their big day. Kirsten’s Grandma was her maid of honor – it was the sweetest! Her grandma was sweet and sassy and rocked some amazing gold sparkly shoes. Once they were all ready for the day, we headed out to do some first looks! Everyone’s reactions during the first looks were precious.

We then captured family photos with a gorgeous mural in the background. Following those, we went around the Landing and took beautiful photos of our bride and groom. The Landing offers so many fresh photo opportunities! After we took stunning pictures of Kirsten & Troy, it was time for the ceremony! Guests arrived at the venue and the wedding party made their way down the aisle. They had an amazing harpist during the ceremony, and, she also did the florals! Take a look at the florals, they are insanely gorgeous. During the ceremony, Kirsten & Troy exchanged vows and rings and then kissed and were pronounced husband and wife!

After their ceremony, Kirsten, Troy, and his daughter had a beautiful moment. They did a ring exchange to formally become one family. It was so sweet, tender, and heartwarming – everyone cried! These guys are the sweetest. Then, it was time to celebrate! They had awesome speeches, a sweet cake cutting, and then touching first dances. Their food was fantastic – it was from a barbecue food truck! The night was such a great celebration of their love. To finish the evening off, we went outside and captured beautiful night photos of the newlyweds!

What a fun day! Kirsten & Troy’s Paper Mill wedding was an honor to be part of. There were so many sweet, wonderful moments throughout the day. We wish them all the best in their marriage!

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!

Caitlin & Andy are married! They had a beautiful Fort Wayne wedding, and we were so honored to be part of it. Despite the questionable weather, these two still made sure they had the best day! See more of their special day…

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! Fun fact, Caitlin’s maid of honor was a past bride of ours! Once we captured some stunning detail shots, Caitlin put her wedding dress on, and off we went! 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! Andy’s family is from Laos, so they provided traditional Laos food for the reception – it was delicious! This was such a special touch to their big day. They also had Alpha-Lit marquee letters, which are always a big hit! Caitlin & Andy and their guests had so much fun at their reception. This crew danced the night away!

Throughout all of the weather battles, Caitlin & Andy had a perfect wedding day. We were so thankful to be part of their Fort Wayne wedding, and are so excited for their future!

Olivia & Vince // Conner Prairie Wedding

Olivia & Vince // Conner Prairie Wedding

Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Vincent Maggioli! Olivia & Vince’s Conner Prairie wedding was full of glam, love, and a lot of laughter. We had the best day celebrating these two, and cannot wait to share more with you!

Olivia & her bridesmaids started the morning by getting ready at the Prairie Guest House. This venue is awesome and offers a bed and breakfast right across the street from the reception hall! Olivia and her girls had matching custom shirts with Olivia & Vince’s wedding date on them, matching shorts, and matching shoes – how adorable! They changed into their gorgeous dresses for the day, and off we went to the church, where we captured photos of Vince and his groomsmen!

Their beautiful ceremony was held at St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church in Carmel, Indiana. This church was absolutely breathtaking! Olivia & Vince’s parents and wedding party made their way down the aisle, followed by Olivia’s cousin, the most adorable ring bearer. Then, it was time for Olivia and her dad to make the walk together! They began walking down the aisle, and Vince cried while seeing his soon-to-be wife for the first time. 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! They cut their delicious hummingbird-flavored wedding cake, and then, dinner was served. After dinner, it was time for toasts! Olivia’s dad welcomed and thanked everyone, followed by Olivia’s maid of honor’s sweet speech, and then Vince’s best man’s awesome speech.

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!

Olivia & Vince’s Conner Prairie wedding was fantastic. We are so honored they chose us to capture their big day. We wish them all the best as they start their married life in Boston!

Stephanie & Jon // Botanical Conservatory Wedding

Stephanie & Jon // Botanical Conservatory Wedding

Stephanie & Jon are married! Their Botanical Conservatory wedding was the most touching and emotional ceremony. We absolutely loved being part of it, and can’t wait to show you more.

If you don’t remember Stephanie & Jon’s downtown Fort Wayne engagement session, click here! They had a musically inspired engagement session, which perfectly foreshadowed their musically inspired wedding. On their wedding day, Stephanie had a custom-made wedding dress sprinkled with music notes. It was unlike anything we’ve ever seen! Jon wore a handsome hunter-green corduroy suit. They were a dashing pair!

Stephanie also made her succulent bouquet (such a unique idea!), along with the boutonnieres and corsages. Once Stephanie was wedding-ready, we headed outside for the first look with her dad. It was such a sweet moment! Right after, it was time for the first look with the soon-to-be husband and wife. Jon cried when he saw Stephanie for the first time, making us cry too! This is why we love photographing weddings.

We captured photos of our bride and groom, and then, it was time for the ceremony. Their ceremony and reception were held at the gorgeous Foellinger–Freimann Botanical Conservatory. This is such a stunning setting for a wedding! For their ceremony, Jon put the music arrangements together himself. Then, they pre-recorded themselves playing several instruments and singing, creating an orchestra played completely by them. They said they cried happy tears often while doing the recording preparation for the day!

During the ceremony, Stephanie & Jon played rock paper scissors to see who would read their personally written vows first – how cute! Everyone was crying during the vows. They were so, so sweet; there were actual tears running down our faces! Jon looks at Stephanie with such love – all day, we caught him staring at his stunning bride with the sweetest love in his eyes. Once they were pronounced husband and wife, it was time to celebrate!

Their reception was a hit. Alomar Entertainment provided the DJ service, which brought the party! Then, Shigs In Pit did the catering, and it was absolutely delicious. The reception space is outdoor, so they had a beautiful setting, which included pretty string lights across the dance floor. We had a blast dancing the night away with Stephanie & Jon and their wedding guests!

Stephanie & Jon’s Botanical Conservatory wedding was so special and magical. We are so honored they asked us to capture their love! Wishing them all the best as they began their marriage.

 

Cheers,

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!
