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.

Rachel & Josh at Ceruti’s :: Fort Wayne Wedding Photography

bride laughs with groom

Rachel and Josh had a storybook wedding that included a beautiful church ceremony, followed by a party of a reception at Ceruti’s. It was great seeing all of their family and friends let loose and enjoy themselves, and the Best Man gave one of the funniest speeches I’ve ever heard (and I’ve heard a lot!).

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.
