Enjoy a few images of their day!
What a GLORIOUS day Dalton and Alissa's wedding was!!! They were married on beautiful Lake Wawasee at Oakwood Resort. Their wedding day was on July 7th which happened to be fireworks night for Lake Wawasee! What an AMAZING way to celebrate their nuptials!
Ryan and Chandra worked many hot Bible Memory camps together over the years and I bet they never would have guessed that their wedding day would be the hottest of them all.. a heat index of 110 degrees! They were champs and the hottest day of the year was their best day of their lives! Enjoy the story of their day through my lens!
Guys.. GUYS! This was THE sweetest wedding of Morgan and Dustin! It was meaningful, Christ-filled and oh so gorgeous! Dustin and Morgan met at Indiana Wesleyan three and a half years ago and have been together ever since. She played volleyball and he was her physical trainer.. I mean, how sweet is that!?!?! Their families back home were actually only 20 minutes away from each other and they were in the same conference in High School but didn't meet until college. The love and complete adoration for each other was soooo evident and it was so fun to watch. I can't wait for you all to scroll through 100 images of their absolutely perfect day!
This sweet backyard wedding was one for the books! Karen and Aaron have known each other/dated for four years.. they have waited for their wedding for a very long time!
The day was soooo hot.. but I didn't hear them complain one bit! They were just happy to finally be married and to celebrate with their closest friends and family.
Enjoy scrolling through the highlights of Karen and Aaron's day!
Now it's time to see two important men in her life.. first up, her dad!
Now it's time for Aaron to see his bride on their wedding day!
Sometimes it's hard to get the ring on.. the right finger. =) They had a good laugh about this!
Such a sweet, sweet wedding day! Thanks, Aaron and Karen for choosing me to be apart of your day!
While most of the world was watching the royal wedding, Lindy and Seth were gathered with their closest friends and family for the most meaningful day of their lives! They waited to see each other until Lindy walked down the isle and it was so, so perfect.
Their day was fun, joyful and fullll of love! God is going to do BIG things in their marriage and I can't wait to see it all play out!
Time to get ready!
First looks with dads are always my faves! Mike and Lindy didn't disappoint!
Time for the ceremony!
I do take family pictures at weddings. They just don't make the blog very often.
UNLESS they look like this!
Both sides of the family planned a fun little "Wedding Caroling" instead of Christmas Caroling! It was a riot!
Not tears for these mom/son, dad/daughter dances.. NOPE! Fun and laughter all around!
This was a special wedding.. Amanda the bride is my cousin! We've gotten to know Jake over the last year and we can NOT be happier that he's now officially apart of the family!
They planned their wedding lightening fast.. just a few months! They leave for medical school for Jake soon so wedding plans needed to take place quickly! They did an AMAZING job and their wedding was meaningful and gorgeous and filled with all of their loved ones.
I can't wait for you all to check out their day through images!
Their nieces were the life of the party, that's for sure!
First looks with brides and their dads are one of the best parts of the day! Roger's reaction to how beautiful Amanda was was priceless!
Next up.. Jake and Amanda get to see each other for the first time!
Amanda had always dreamed of getting married at her childhood church, East Goshen Mennonite. The ceremony was soooooo sweet and meaningful and full of Jesus!
Love it when the pastor has the bride and groom turn around and look at all the people that are in support of their marriage.. it usually brings tears to the couples eyes!
And then it's time for the party! Their reception was at a newly remodeled barn venue, Meadow Brook Barn.
They had a live band that was FABULOUS!
The new Mr. and Mrs. Nolan!
Of course there was some cake eating...
And first dancing...
And Amanda's dad, Roger, was first up with toasts. He HAD to gift his new son-in-law a Pittsburg Steelers Terrible Towel.. but of course.
So when the glasses "dinged" asking the bride and groom kiss.. Jake twirled around his new terrible towel!
Daddy/daughter dances get me EVERY time!
Now it's time for everyone to dance! Matt and Eli started everyone out on the dance floor!
Even uncle Roger cut a rug on the dance floor!
Amanda thought they were doing a sparkler send off.. Nope! A helicopter flew to the barn and landed in the backyard as all the guests waived goodbye! How's that for a fun send off?
Your day was perfect.
Soooo honored to be apart of it and even more honored that I get to call you family!
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!
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!
