Rebecca and John – An After Wedding Engagement!
Instead of a typical engagement session, Rebecca and John opted to wait until after their wedding and head to Navy Pier in Chicago. Their youngest daughter, Rayven joined us. She also took some pictures with her iPad!
We had a rainy day, but the cloudy sky was a beautiful backdrop. While we were expecting watercraft in our background, we were delighted to also have aircraft! There just happened to be an air show happening on that day.
John and Rebecca went to Disney World on their honeymoon, so we had to have some Disney in our shoot also. They wore their bride and groom mouse ears with their names embroidered on the back.
After Navy Pier we stopped at a lovely park in Whiting. Again the cloudy sky was an awesome backdrop.
Thanks, Rebecca and John, for choosing White Tiger Photographic and taking us on this beautiful trip. Hope to see your lovely family again soon!
Alexis and Cameron Married in Alegian Michigan
Lexi chose the first venue they looked at for their wedding. And what a great choice it was! The Gathering is owned by a family friend, and is a beautiful rustic venue. The gazebo with its free hanging windows is the perfect spot for a wedding. The sky was cloudy, but the rain held off and it was a perfect day.
Cameron started to come into the Union Market where Lexi worked eight years ago. They started dating seriously 4 and a half years ago. They both are deer hunters, so their cake and decorations depicted hunting scenes. Cam’s daughter Lily was flower girl, and Lexi’s nephews ring bearers.
The bride and groom each had space in the main house for preparing for the big day. Before and after the ceremony we made use of the areas around the house and barn, including the pond and front porch. After the wedding and reception, we went back out to the gazebo and did some dancing photos as the sun was starting to set.
Congratulations and best wishes to our happy couple!
Sarai’s Quinceanera in Fort Wayne
Sarai turned 15 in July with a traditional Quinceanera. We had a photo session in June at the Foster Park Bridal Glen in Fort Wayne. They used some of those photos for her party at the IPFW Ballroom.
Her father, Sergio, is the Pastor of their church, the Simpson United Methodist Church, where the ceremony was held. One of her sisters translated the Spanish ceremony into English as her father spoke. Her mother, Janie said a blessing for her. One of her grandmothers said a blessing and her other grandmother sang a song. During the ceremony she was given gifts of a bible, watch, ring, prayer pillow, crown and a doll. Each item symbolized her relationship with God and the transition from girl to woman.
After the ceremony, we went to an apartment building where one of her sisters lives to take photos. They have an awesome view of downtown Fort Wayne. At the ballroom, each of her court couples were introduced with their own song and dance, then performed a group dance. After dinner, Sarai’s parents presented her with her first pair of high heels, and took away the flat shoes of her childhood. She waltzed with her father. Then they did a special dance to My Girl, and were joined by three other gentleman who ended up blocking her boyfriend!
What a wonderful day topped off by a wonderful party! Thank you for choosing White Tiger Photographic to capture this momentous occasion!
