We joined Bree and her girls at the hotel as they finished getting ready. Bree’s daughter tried on her wedding dress and was so very cute. Then she changed into her flower girl dress and boots. The groomsmen all went sky diving!
Bree and Josh have been together for six years. They have two adorable children, McKenna acted as the flower girl. Their son Jude was ring bearer. The outdoor ceremony was lovely and the weather perfect. This group of friends and family were all about having fun and we took some great photos with them!
The reception was held in the lodge. Besides the traditional cake they had many different types of pie!
Best wishes to this wonderful family!
Berlin and Eric are high school sweethearts, nine years later they were wed in an outdoor ceremony at the Lakeside Occasions venue in Topeka. Berlin is an elementary school PE teacher. Eric is a Supervisor of logistic insight. (I still don’t know what that means!) We met Berlin at the Fort Wayne Bridal Spectacular Show last January.
Berlin and her girls got ready at a hotel in Shipshawana Indiana. Berlin’s five young cousins were “sign bearers” for the wedding. They all stayed in the hotel with Berlin and another bridesmaid the night before the wedding. Eric and his guys met up at the venue to get ready. We took full advantage of the unique setting for our pictures. Berlin brought a parachute to use for photos. The bridesmaid and groomsmen held it up so Berlin and Eric could stand underneath.
The final event of the evening was lighting paper lanterns and letting them go. Well, most of them flew away!
Thank you, Berlin and Eric for choosing us to photograph your special day! Best wishes to you!
Robin and Zach have been together for six and a half years. They met at Manchester College on New Years.
As we arrived at the Potawatomi Wildlife park near Bourbon Indiana, family and friends were setting up and decorating. Robin’s mother made the bridesmaids bouquets and they were gorgeous! Then the girls went to Robin’s Grandfather’s house to get ready. While steaming the wrinkles out of a bridesmaid dress, the smoke alarms kept going off! The guys gathered at the park and dressed in a camper.
We took Robin out to the gazebo in the woods to wait for Zach. We moved into a path in the trees and let them have their first look. They tied the knot before family and friends in a lovely outdoor ceremony. The reception immediately followed the ceremony. They had a two person band entertain at the reception.
Robin and Zach plan on taking a trip next year to visit family in California. Best wishes to this wonderful couple!
We met Staci at the Fort Wayne Bridal Spectacular in January. We are so glad they chose us to photograph their engagement and wedding! We started out at Lakeside Park then wandered around downtown Fort Wayne for their engagement session. In August, Bryanna and Lynda met up with them at the church in Fort Wayne. We did a few photos before the ceremony, but completed most of the groups afterward. Then the party climbed into the big yellow Hummer and toured the town! We met back up with them at Ceruties for a grand reception.
We would like to thank Brad and Staci for choosing us to be their photographers for their wonderful day. We wish them the best in their future together!
Shayna and Adam were married in a Catholic ceremony with friends and family. After the ceremony the bridal party rode off in a limo for a tour of the city. We then met up with them at East Race Park and walked along the river for some casual and fun photos. Shayna’s very long veil was a challenge sometimes, but was so beautiful! After photos we headed to Saint Hedwig’s for the reception.
Best wishes to Shayna and Adam!
