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)!

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

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.

Shannon & Chris at Sylvan Cellars :: Northeast Indiana Wedding Photography

Shooting a no-fuss wedding like Shannon and Chris’ is often a breath of fresh air in the middle of wedding season. From their simple, rustic, succulent-filled decor to their low-key bridal party (just one Maid of Honor and one Best Man), the whole day was refreshing, laid back, and filled with laughter.
