Marisa and Ryan are married! They got married on a beautiful January day with snow fall You may remember them from their awesome engagement session with us, but if not, click here (CLICK ME)! Read on to get all the sweet details from this beautiful downtown Empyrean Wedding…
Marisa and Ryan’s wedding day started at the Empyrean! This wedding venue sits at the top of the PNC bank building over looking all of downtown Fort Wayne. With floor to ceiling windows wrapping nearly every wall, the views are breathtaking. They even offer awesome getting ready spaces for both parties and an entire additional room just for the ceremony. Convenience meets style at the Empyrean! Marisa got ready with her bridesmaids and mom. When it was time, her mom helped her into her dress and her bridesmaids helped with all the other details. After Ryan was all dressed and ready to go, it was time for the first look! Marisa walked up behind Ryan, tapped on his shoulder, and waited for his reaction. Only pictures can fully explain how sweet it was (see below)!
After the first look, we took a few family portraits then headed downtown for some wedding party photos. It was cold outside, but it was snowing little flurries – It made the photos so fun and wintery. After portraits, everyone headed back up to the Empyrean for food, toasts, and warmth! The reception space was decorated beautifully by Empyrean Designs, a custom floral and wedding decor business. The bouquets were also created by this awesome team!
Everyone made their entrances during the end of cocktail hour. Guests cheered as the DJ announced everyone in! Marisa and Ryan shared their first dance, then guests took their seats in the beautifully decorated dining room for dinner. During dinner, Marisa and Ryan cut their cake (which was made by Ryan’s dad)! Members of the wedding party shared toasts and lots of laughs, then it was time for some dancing! At the end of the night, Marisa and Ryan went outside with us to do some snowy night portraits. These are some of our personal favorites from the day, so we are so thankful that these two were willing to brave the cold with us!
We had a such a blast capturing these two’s wedding – Marisa and Ryan are some of the kindest people we know. They were even texting us on their honeymoon to make sure the photos they were taking during their trip were Dustin and Corynn approved! How sweet is that? This downtown Empyrean wedding was beautiful, elegant, and most importantly, really, really sweet. We hope you enjoy your photos for years to come.
