Jessica & Kyle at Orchard Ridge Country Club :: Fort Wayne Wedding Photography

bride and groom kissing with sunset

When the forecast for Jessica and Kyle’s wedding day showed a 50% chance of thunderstorms, there was obvious panic over the plan to have an outdoor ceremony. But the entire wedding party crossed their fingers, hoped for the best, and forged ahead with the game plan.

It’s a good thing we did, because the ceremony was dry, the portraits were gorgeous and cloudy, and we managed to grab a fantastic sunset photo at the end of the night. Add to that the close-knit bridal party, emotional family moments, and raging dance floor party, and Jessica and Kyle’s wedding day turned out perfect.
