Melissa and Adam married in Hobart Indiana
Melissa and Adam chose the Ambassador Banquet hall for their wedding and reception. Adam is a tattoo artist and Melissa is a pediatric dental assistant. They have been together for seven years and live outside Hobart, Indiana. They have one son, Alden, five-years old.
Melissa and Adam chose a Beauty and The Beast theme for their wedding. Melissa’s ballroom style dress fit the theme perfectly. Before the ceremony, her dad presented her with a special necklace. Along with her dad Paul, Alden walked Melissa down the aisle, . Her dad co-officiated the ceremony. Alden participated in the sand ceremony with his parents. After the ceremony, Alden started crying because he wanted to marry mommy too!
After the ceremony we went to the Deep River Park to do group and family photos. We made a stop at the nursing home to visit Adam’s grandmother who was unable to attend the festivities. Then back to the Ambassador Banquet hall for the reception. Their Beauty and the Beast theme permeated the reception hall with candelabras and roses under glass jars. The cake table and head table had Beauty and the Beast memorabilia also.
Thank you, Melissa and Adam for choosing White Tiger Photographic to capture your special day!
An Outdoor Wedding in September!
Dana and Kevin picked a beautiful day for their outdoor wedding in New Haven Indiana. Their choice of vibrant fall colors was perfect for their day. We had some fun reworking the colors in our editing program, but the real life colors were bright and perfect for their day.
Dana and Kevin met through Dana’s cousin, who is married to Kevin’s brother. They are all Fort Wayne Komet hockey fans. Dana’s cousin invited her to go with them to the games and she met Kevin. They are now season ticket holders!
During the Anniversary Dance we learned that Dana’s grandparents have been married for 64 years. Kevin’s parents have been married for 39 years and now share their anniversary with Kevin and Dana!
Best Wishes and Congratulations to Dana and Kevin!
Lauren and Ryan Married in Dyer Indiana
The first time Lauren and Ryan met was a few years ago at his Junior Prom. They went their separate ways, only to meet up again two years ago while working as EMTs. Their backyard wedding included their daughter, Ella Mae, as flower girl and Lauren’s nephew, Blue, as ring bearer. Lauren and her girls prepared for the wedding at the house. Her dress had a lace jacket that had to be sewn closed in the back. After the ceremony, she had to be cut back out of the jacket!
As he walked down the hill to the ceremony, Blue had a bit of fun shaking the ring box. When it was time to exchange the rings, the box was empty! So we had a little delay while a couple people looked for the rings in the grass. Luckily they were found and the ceremony continued.
Ryan is in the Army and is preparing to deploy soon, so their honeymoon will be delayed until he returns. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ryan, Lauren and their family as he serves his country. Safe travels and return.
Congratulations and Best Wishes, Lauren and Ryan!
Kaitlin and Austin Engagement at Notre Dame, Indiana
Kaitlin’s mom has worked at Notre Dame University in South Bend for over 30 years. Kaitlin grew up on campus, so it was only fitting to do their engagement session there. It is nice to have connections, as we were able to use a golf cart to move around campus!
Austin and Kaitlin met during high school band and have been together over seven years. Now she is a case manager for Real Services and he is a graphic designer/photographer for a car dealership. They are fans of the Avengers, so Iron Man and Captain America were instrumental in our session. Also, Beauty and the Beast has played a big role in Kaitlin’s life. Mom watched the movie while in labor with her, so the movie is a favorite!
Kaitlin’s ring was her grandmother’s. We will be seeing them again in April!
Megan and Robbie Engaged in Fort Wayne
Robbie and Megan grew up going to the same church. Nine years ago they started dating, and will be married in May at that same church. They chose May because they didn’t want any chance of snow on their wedding day. Cannot blame them for that!
Megan chose to meet near Lawton Park in Fort Wayne. We walked around the old fort, Megan’s aunt used to coordinate the costumes for the actors when they had reenactments. From there we crossed the bridge to Headwaters Park and downtown.
We look forward to seeing the lovely couple again in May!
