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)!

Amanda & Brandon at Salomon Farm :: Fort Wayne Wedding Photography

Some of my favorite weddings are ones where everything takes place in one location. The bride and groom (and everyone else) always seem so much more laid back, and it gives us ample opportunity to duck away and take some great portraits.

Amanda and Brandon’s wedding had all that, plus some really great candid moments, like Amanda’s dad seeing her for the first time, the bridesmaids freaking out about the goats, and the groomsmen getting emotional during toasts.

Liz and Andy had a beautiful wedding at one of my favorite downtown venues, Empyrean. Surrounded by their family, friends, and two sons, the couple exchanged vows, then partied the night away as the sun set through the floor-to-ceiling windows of the venue.
