Emily & Cory at the Grand Wayne Center :: Fort Wayne Wedding Photography

Emily is one of those people who clearly loved planning her wedding. She took great care to acquire some of the best vendors in town, told them what she wanted, and then sat back and watched her vision come to life. The attention to detail at Emily and Cory’s wedding was astonishing, but it was the personal touches that really made their day special.

Even though the rain ruined plans for a Wells Street Bridge ceremony, the day turned out practically flawless, and this adorable couple ended up happily married at the end. What more could you ask for?

Heather & Danny at The Grand Wayne Center :: Fort Wayne Wedding Photography

Bride and Groom in front of GE building in downtown Fort Wayne

I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect way to wrap up my 2014 season than with Heather and Danny’s wedding day.

It started with a ceremony in the most adorable church in Monroeville, followed by literally hours of time for us to shoot portraits all over Fort Wayne (Foster Park, Calhoun Street, alleyways, parking garages, and the GE building!). The day wrapped up with a classy reception at the Grand Wayne Center and very first taste of the infamous “Hog Trough Dance”!

On top of that, the weather was absolute perfection. We were relaxed, we were having fun, and we were able to document a very special day for Heather and Danny.
