Amber and Andrew Married at Deep River County Park, Merrillville Indiana
Amber and Andrew picked one of our favorite combinations for venues, a wedding ceremony at Deep River County Park and a reception at The Avalon Manor in Merrillville Indiana. Deep River County Park has a beautiful wedding glen with a lovely white gazebo. The wedding party gathered at the Avalon to get ready, then headed to the park for the ceremony. They had their son as “Ring Security”. The flower girl did a wonderful job of blanketing the walkway with flower petals. During the after ceremony photoshoot, our ring bearer and bridesmaid had fun with bubbles!
Tying a bow tie can be a complicated process, good thing YouTube has videos to help! After the ceremony, we took photos around the park, then headed back to the Avalon for their reception. Their Dr Who themed reception was complete with a Tardis card box and decorations. The tosses were quite the battles! Our young gentleman who caught the garter was very excited!
Thank you, Andrew and Amber for choosing White Tiger Photographic to capture your special day!
Ashlee and Tyler’s Reception at Solomon Farm Park, Fort Wayne Indiana
Ashlee and Tyler were married in a small family ceremony in June. Then they had their reception in July at the Solomon Farm Park in Fort Wayne Indiana.
Their day started with their attendants joining them at home to prepare, with ironing and helping each other to get dressed. The trolly picked them up for a tour and to deliver them to the venue. The reception included cake cutting, and cupcakes, with a little smashing! They danced and tossed the bouquet and garter. Their attendants teamed up for toasts.
Congratulations Tyler and Ashlee!

Kimberly and Eric Married in Wakarusa, Indiana
Kim and Eric met on line almost four years ago. They were engaged last year on a trip to Niagara Falls. They chose to have their ceremony and reception at Nelson’s Catering and Banquet Hall in Wakarusa Indiana. It was a very warm and sticky day in June, but their day was still perfect! Their favorite saying, “To the moon and back”, is inscribed on her moon necklace It was an emotional walk down the aisle for Kim, escorted by her mother. Their children as flower girl and ring bearer could not have done a better job!
After the ceremony we headed outside for some quick shots. The bridal party were wonderful about being out in the heat. We even did the “Toyota jump” shot! The beach theme cake was so cute! Games and tosses and wonderful Nelson’s Catering food was enjoyed by all who attended.
Thank you, Eric and Kim, for choosing White Tiger Photographic
Lucia’s Quinceanera in Lafayette Indiana
Lucia turned 15 with the love and support of her family and friends, and an awesome party! Her day started at home with hair and makeup. Her gorgeous pink dress made her look like a princess. When asked how many dresses she had to try on before finding the perfect dress, she said, “none!” She saw this dress while looking on-line and knew it was the one she wanted. And it was perfect for her special day. A Quinceanera signifies the transformation of a girl into womanhood.
We went to the train depot in Lafayette to do pictures and wait for the horse and carriage that would be picking up Lucia and her entourage. The cloudy sky made for a pretty background over the landscaping and train depot building. The carriage, from Indiana Carriage, pulled by Marty arrived and took Lucia and her sister and cousins for a ride around Lafayette. The drivers even treated them with ice cream along the way. We met up with them again at the Holiday Inn Lafayette-City Center where Lucia’s Quinceanera was to be held. The hotel has a grand stairway that is awesome for photos. We did group photos as family and friends arrived for the party.
After a delicious dinner, Lucia’s younger sister played “Happy Birthday” on her violin for her big sister. Then Lucia was seated on the dance floor and her oldest brother brought their mother a gift. It was a tiara which her mother placed upon Lucia’s head. Then her other brother brought their father another package. This one held high heeled shoes for The Changing of the Shoes where she shed her childish sneakers for the elegant high heels. She received her Last Doll from a cousin and another special gift from another.
After the ceremonies came the traditional first dances. She danced with her father, then the traditional waltz with her escort. The band El Principal played and the guests danced!
Congratulations, Lucia! Hopefully your mother’s heartfelt and inspirational message to you will help guide you during your life’s journey.
Thank you for choosing White Tiger Photographic to capture this very special day in the life of this very special young woman!
Amanda and Kurk Engaged in Peru Indiana
Amanda and Kurk’s wedding is coming up in early August. We met them in Logansport, Indiana at Spencer Park for their engagement session. We had not been to this park before so didn’t know what to expect.
The park was a pleasant surprise with a river winding through it and picnic area. Walking along the river to find the perfect spots for photos was relaxing and fun with this great couple. We are looking forward to seeing them again in just a few weeks!
