Mid Century Art Deco Styled Shoot at the Clyde Theatre :: Fort Wayne Wedding Photography

Last spring, I got together a team of the best wedding vendors in town for a styled shoot that would shine a light on an amazing piece of Fort Wayne architectural history: the Clyde Theatre. Located on Bluffton Road, it opened in 1951 as a movie theater, and is now being renovated into a modern concert, music, and event venue. The interior of the building is massive and magnificent. It’s art deco features and large graphic wall art naturally led us to a mid century art deco themed shoot. Here are some of my favorite photos from the shoot. Check out the latest feature in Fort Wayne Weddings magazine (which hits the newsstands December 23, 2016) to read more about it!

Megan & Dustin at Bel Air Events :: Central Indiana Wedding Photography

Megan and Dustin went into their wedding day with the perfect attitude. They remained blissful and laid back from start to finish, made plenty of time for family, and couldn’t stop smiling and laughing through every moment.

Their first look was emotional, their ceremony was meaningful, and they finished up their day with a celebration at a beautiful venue in Kokomo.

Katelyn & Jeff’s Barn Wedding :: Northeast Indiana Wedding Photography

Katelyn & Jeff’s wedding was the perfect way to wind down my wedding season. Every moment of their day took place in a location that was personal to them. The bride got ready at her parents’ adorable bed and breakfast in Howe, IN. The ceremony took place overlooking an old mill on a friend’s property, and the reception was held at the bride’s parents’ farm.

The whole day was gorgeous and personal, the thunderstorms held off, and guests partied into the night, capping their evening with smores by a bonfire.
