Courtney & Matt at the Allen County Courthouse :: Fort Wayne Wedding Photography

bride and groom smile at each other in park

You never know what you’re going to get when you show up to a wedding having never met the Bride or Groom. Have they seen my work? Are they laid back? Type A? Emotional? Goofy?

But I completely lucked out with Courtney and Matt. The vibe of their wedding day was one of “let’s have fun and enjoy it,” which is the best attitude for most important day of your life.

I enjoyed hanging out with them and their bridal party, and loved shooting my first wedding at the Courthouse. What a gorgeous venue! The weather cooperated (finally!), and their day was absolute perfection.
