You may remember Martha and Dan from their engagement session blog that we posted a few weeks back. If not, make sure to go check it out and see all of their super sweet engagement photos! (You can click here to see that post.) Martha and Daniel’s Swan Lake Resort wedding was nothing short of awesome! Even if the power went out due to an ice storm. Read on for all the details from their big day!
If you read Martha and Daniel’s engagement blog, you learned that these two got engaged around thanksgiving of 2020! Rather than planning a massive wedding with tons of guests, Martha and Daniel decided to host a smaller intimate wedding over the New Year, since family would already be in town! So with just over a month to plan, these two had a lot to do! Being at their wedding, you would have never known it was planned in that amount of time. It was a beautiful day, albeit with some hiccups, but Martha and Dan never got stressed out! They rolled with the punches and made amazing memories with friends and family.
The day’s events were all held at Swan Lake Resort in Plymouth Indiana. Martha got ready with her mom and bridesmaid in the bridal suite! After getting completely ready, Martha did a first look with her dad. Afterwards, we took some photos of Martha with her family, then Martha went to rest before the ceremony. We snagged some photos of Daniel getting ready and of his mom putting his boutonniere on. We used the in between time before the ceremony to take some photos of Daniel with his groomsmen and family, then it was time for the ceremony!
The ceremony was inside since it was so cold and wet outside. Friends and family took their seats and the ceremony started! Dan waited up front for Martha. Soon, Martha’s mom and Daniel’s parents walked down the aisle, where both of their moms lit candles for the ceremony. Soon, Martha walked through the door way with her dad and made their to the front of the room. Martha and Dan took hands, exchanged vows, exchanged rings, performed a candle ceremony! They kissed and were officially married!
After the ceremony, Martha and Dan hopped online to their live stream of the ceremony to thank everyone who watched them get married online, then we headed outside for photos. We took some wedding party photos then had some portrait time with Martha and Dan, the newlyweds! An ice storm had come through northern Indiana the night before their wedding day. While this created a power outage at the reception hall, it also created a stunning atmosphere for photos! We were loving every minute!
After photos, it was time for the reception. Swan Lake Resort was beautiful inside! Even though the power was out, Martha and Daniel made the most of it. Luckily, we had some video lights in our car, so we set those up on the dance floor so everyone could see! It made for one memorable wedding! There were dinner, toasts, cake cutting, and first dances, then the dance floor opened up!
We had so much fun capturing Martha and Daniel’s Swan Lake Resort Wedding day. We are so happy for these two and their new marriage! We hope you guys love your photos. Can’t wait to photograph you two again!
