Meet Lindy and Seth.. a May 19th wedding couple! Last night was filled with these two love birds engagement session! We had such a good time and I LOVED the relationship they had together! May 19th can't come soon enough!
Wow.. what a gorgeous, gorgeous day Trent and Hannah's wedding day was! The second I met Hannah I KNEW she was going to be a dream to work with! And the way Trent treated her?? He feels the same. They met at Valparaiso University and have been inseparable since! A college change, both were collegiate athletes and two college college degrees have only brought them closer to each other. The first day of their marriage was one for the books.. perfect in every way! Thanks for inviting me along to capture your day through my lens! Enjoy some of the highlights of the day!
When it takes 15 minutes, two sisters and a mom to complete all the buttons on your weddings dress.. you do a little cheer when you finally get them buttoned!
Daddy daughter first looks are always one of my favorite parts of a wedding day. Marty and Hannah did not disappoint!
Then it was time for Trent to see his bride for the first time and there was nothing but smiles!
Hannah's grandpa was able to say a few things during the ceremony and he was a RIOT! Don't worry.. he's not done showing up in the blog post! He was precious!
The sister toast was epic.. like changed-the-lyrics-to-5-disney-princess-songs epic!
First dance time!
Trent and his mama have a fun bond.. you can just tell by the way she danced with him!
The bride and groom are always the biggest losers to the Anniversary dance.. just fun to get a picture of them loosing!
And I told ya Hannah's grandpa would show up in the blog again.. this time dancing with his wife of 55 years and getting pretty cocky that they were going to win the anniversary dance!
Guys.. Hannah and Trent had such an amazing wedding. I can tell their lives will be surrounded by a ton of friends, family and lots and lots of adoration for one another!
Welp.. it's getting (a bit) warmer here in Norther Indiana so know what what means??? Sessions are starting back up! And what a FUN TIME starting out the season with Allyson and Colton on the campus of Notre Dame! We walked around, got to know each other, talked about the wedding and grabbed some shots here and there!
Their wedding is going to be so, so sweet. Why? Cuz they have a ton of fun with each other and you can tell they are smitten! July can't get here soon enough!
Only took rescheduling 4 times to get THE perfect snow.. but we did it! We got AMAZING snow and an amazing engagement session! Becca and Broc are a 2018 October couple that are so stinking adorable! We joked that we hope that our weather will be a *bit* warmer the day of their wedding! LOVE working with you guys and can't wait for your wedding!!!
I don't know about you.. but there is something so special about a couple that were high school sweethearts and end up getting married! Carlie and Kenny started dating in high school and dating all through college at Grace. Their relationship has been so, so sweet to watch over the years. Their is a comfort level in their love that is so easy to be around.
Their wedding day, December 22nd, was gorgeous in every way. Every detail was thought out and executed amazingly. I can't wait for you to scroll through their day and see all the detail they put into this day.
Carlie helping her 10 year old sister was adorable.. I hope they recreate these images when Kenlie gets married!
There was so much emotion on this wedding day. When Carlie got her dress on she was overcome with emotion! Her mama was right there to pray with her and help her gain her composure.
Then it was Kenlie's turn to loose it!
I told ya! Every detail was well thought out.. including the message on Kenny's dad's tie!
Time to see her dad for the first time.. SO STINKING SWEET!
Time for Kenny to see his bride!
I think he approves.
I love this image as they are announced Mr. and Mrs. Bearss!!!
And more emotion.. so stinking sweet!
Now to get announced at the PARTY!!!!
Carlie did THE coolest thing at her reception. Instead of having a anniversary dance or a bouquet toss she had all the girls 10 and younger to come onto the dance floor. She gave them a rose with a verse attached and then prayed for their future husbands. This was THE coolest thing ever done at a reception that I have witnessed! Just shows Miss Carlie's heart!
The toasts were ON POINT!
Now it's time to DANCE! The dance floor was packed the entire night!
SUCH an amazing day!
Carlie and Kenny.. may your wedded lives be as amazing, heart felt and lovely as your wedding day was!
Oh my word.. just look at the look Anne is giving her beautiful daughter!
Next step after Hannah had her dress on was to have a first look with her dad.
Another glance at his baby girl on her wedding day!
Now it's time for the first look with her groom!
In the snow.
Could this BE more magical!?!?!?
Look at how excited Hannah's dad is to walk her down the isle!
Not only is Hannah's' dad her dad but he's her pastor too. He shed a few tears through the ceremony but was SO honored to be giving his daughter away to Johnny!
It is a known fact that NO bride can ever get her grooms ring on! Happens EVERY time!
Time for the reception!!!!
Well.. that there is my 2nd shooter, Kelli! It's fun when our hubbies get to be out our weddings!
The two anniversary dance winners were BOTh of Hannah and Johnny's grandparents! Both couples have been married over 55 years.. SO COOL!
If there was dancing going on.. Hannah was on the dance floor!
And so was her brother Isaiah!
December 9th, 2017 was a magical day. Hannah and Johnny are going to do GREAT THINGS through their marriage and we can't wait to see what those things are! God bless you guys!
Kelly and Lynn's day was filled with such gorgeousness! Their wedding was originally supposed to take place in August but Kelly's dad needed a surgery so they pushed back their wedding to Thanksgiving weekend so he could be at his daughter's big day.
Lynn's son, Jeffery was SO excited to officially call Kelly "mom". He was wound up all day and having the time of his life!
Here's just a peak into their wedding day!!!!
Isn't this family adorable?? And their hearts are as gorgeous as they are! They have hosted numerous exchange students into their homes and they wanted to include those exchange students in some of their pics!
I've been waiting for this day!!! Ryan told me a few months ago that he was going to pop the question.. patiently waited for him to propose, book me and for his e-session to happen! I've known Ryan for years and years with Bible Memory and he is SUCH a catch! Getting to know Chandra I am completely confident that she's 100% made for him. They are the SWEETEST and I am sooooo excited to capture their day on June 30th, 2018!!!
Am I allowed to say that this is my favorite Elrod session ever!?!?!? We've been together for years and years and they NEVER disappoint! I feel like each year we're able to capture their personalities a little bit more.
And you would never guess that this session was frigid, would ya!?!? they put their poker faces on and ROCKED IT!!!
