Chelsie & Zach at Goeglein’s Homestead :: Fort Wayne Wedding Photography

Chelsie and Zach’s wedding was a new twist on an old location. I’ve shot at Homestead a few times before, but never had the pleasure of shooting a wedding upstairs. The brick detail was gorgeous, the weather was perfect, the bride was stunning, and the whole day was filled with tons of emotion (the good kind)!

Stephanie & Dalen at the Embassy Theatre :: Fort Wayne Wedding Photography

Bride and Groom in front of Botanical Conservatory

Stephanie and Dalen infused their entire wedding day with places, people, and moments that spoke about them as a couple. During the ceremony, the organist performed a piece that Dalen himself composed just for this occasion. Their reception was held at the Embassy Theatre to reflect their love of music, and was decorated in a 1920s-esque theme to play off the history of the building. During the reception, Stephanie and some friends from school played the piano and sang for the guests. It was truly a day that was memorable for both Stephanie and Dalen, along with everyone was was in attendance!

Julie & Craig at Lakeside Park :: Fort Wayne Wedding Photography

Bride and Groom cuddling under a tree

Julie and Craig chose the gorgeous Lakeside Park rose garden for their wedding ceremony. So with the sun beating down, and all of their family and friends in attendance, this adorable couple said “I do”.

Everyone was excited to get to the reception, which included toasts, a dollar dash, and the newlywed game. During the game, they asked who was a better dancer. Everyone in the room knew it was Julie… after all, she comes from a long line of people who love to dance. I got to experience that first hand as Julie’s family tore up the dance floor until the end of the night.
