Markle Indiana is a lovely little town and was perfect for the wedding of Kristen and Joel. The ceremony was in their church downtown. The girls dressed downstairs in the youth room. Kristen’s mom helped her get ready. Their wedding party included their siblings and children. Daughter Desi was a lovely Junior Bridesmaid. Son Cole was handsome as a Junior Groomsman and son Travis adorable as Ring Bearer.
After the wedding everyone gathered a few blocks down the street for the reception. Family and friends gathered together to celebrate. While we had the usual events like dancing and cake cutting, this couple threw in a new twist! Actually, it was an old German tradition called Sie Leben Hoch. Leben hoch means toasting the couple with honor and esteem. The bride and groom sit in chairs in the middle of the dance floor. The first part of the toast is performed just before midnight for the Bride and Groom. The leader reads the saying and the guests respond with “Hoch”! Then the bride removes her veil and the groom removes his boutonniere. They are then given special hats to wear, see photo below! Then they are Husband and Wife and the second part of the toast is given. They are then hoisted in the air, in their chairs, and walked through the hall to the bar. This was a fun and different event for the wedding!
We would like to thank Kristen and Joel for letting us be a part of their special day!
A Valentine’s Day Wedding!
Mandy & JC were married in Akron, IN during a Valentine’s Day blizzard. Family and friends made their way to the church to witness the ceremony. The wedding party consisted of family members, including Mandy’s daughters. Following the ceremony everyone went to the Akron Community Center for the reception. Attendees had a choice of Prime Rib or Chicken for dinner. Despite the weather, family and friends celebrated and danced the night away!
Following the reception, Mandy and JC left for a honeymoon in Hawaii. Best wishes to Mandy & JC from all of us at White Tiger Photographic!
This was one of our colder engagement sessions, and in spite of some pretty good wind and spots of rain this couple stood strong and allowed us to capture some great images! Thanks for allowing us to be a part of your upcoming special day we appreciate it!
Michelle and her mom met us at a bridal show. We are so glad they did! Michelle won her dress and a few other things at that show too!
This was a family affair, from the decorations to attendants. The wedding coordinator, Caitlin of One of a Kind Events did an awesome job with flowers, decorations and all other arrangements. The beautiful church ceremony was followed by a beautifully decorated reception. Our groom’s mother created the decorations for the reception hall. And she did a gorgeous job!
We would like to thank Michelle and John for choosing White Tiger Photographic to capture their special day! Best wishes to you!
Corinne had plenty of help to get ready for her wedding, including the flower girl! Our couple wanted a quiet moment before the ceremony, but didn’t want to see each other, so we had them stand on either side of a doorway. The groomsmen passed the time by playing air hockey. After the ceremony we took the wedding party downtown by the courthouse for photos. They were a brave crew, considering the cold and rain we had that day.
The reception was held at the Akron Community Center. Cake smashing and dancing highlighted the reception. Have we ever mentioned that cake smashing makes the best photos? Ha!
Best wishes to our lovely couple! Thank you, Corinne and Josh, for choosing White Tiger Photographic to photograph your special day!
