Remember Danielle and Bernie from their beautiful downtown Fort Wayne engagement session. Well if not, you can see all of those photos here (CLICK ME). We had so much fun capturing their engagement. So we knew their Union 12 wedding would the same! It was pretty stormy on their wedding day, but these two, their families, and friends made the most out of it! Read on for all the sweet details…
After getting hair and makeup done, Danielle slipped into her dress and her mom helped her get into it. Danielle was surrounded by all of her super awesome bridesmaids who helped her with her jewelry, garter, shoes, and veil – We love helpful bridesmaids! After completing her perfect bridal look, we took some pretty portraits by the window. After a first look with her dad and step dad, Danielle patiently waited for her first look with Bernie. We headed inside Union 12 where Bernie was getting ready. After getting some portraits of Bernie, it was time for their first look!
Since it was rainy at this time, we took these two love birds under the awesome covered patio at Union 12 for their first look and for some portrait time. And wow, what a first look. We don’t think Bernie could gave been smiling any bigger! Before the ceremony, we were able to complete some portraits and wedding party pictures! What happened next? You guessed it. The ceremony!
Danielle waited inside the beautiful getting ready home on union 12’s property. As guests were seated and the wedding party were in their places, Danielle and her dads made their way through the rain, into the doors of Union 12, and down the beautifully decorated aisle. Bernie anxiously and excitedly waited at the alter for his bride! After vows, a tying of 3 cords, and an exchange of rings, these two were pronounced husband and wife! They celebrated and smiled all down the aisle.
We took Danielle and Bernie outside for portraits this time around! Even though it was raining, it wasn’t quite as stormy. These two were troopers through the whole day – It was so sweet. After some portraits, we headed inside for dinner, toasts, and the reception! The food for the day was done by the amazing team at Empyrean Events and Catering while the florals were done by the awesome Empyrean Designs. After some fun toasts, cake cutting, and first dances, it was time to party!
Danielle and Bernie’s wedding day was so beautiful despite the stormy weather. Everything about their day was so fun and memorable! We loved capturing this union 12 wedding. We hope you enjoy your photos for years to come!
