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.

Jenny & Scott at Oakwood Resort :: Northern Indiana Wedding Photography

Jenny and Scott’s wedding day was a long time coming. We did their engagement photos back in 2013. And while it feels like ages ago, they’re just as sweet as I remember them… and it seems like their love for each other has done nothing but multiple over the years. That love led them to this day… the perfect wedding day with lots of smiles and happy tears. bride's dress, shoes, and brooch bouquet mother of the bride watches bride get dressed bride gets dressed mother of the bride puts bracelet on bride's wrist mother and sister of the bride smiles while helping her get dressed bride puts in earrings and hugs her sister bridesmaids smile when they see the bride in her dress bride and groom's first look bride and groom hug during first look bride and groom portrait in front of lake ceremony program and sign ring bearers carry sign down the aisle bride walks down the aisle with her dad bride hugs her dad during ceremony bride and groom exchange vows bride tears up during ceremony bride and groom's first kiss wedding rings in a flower

Jill & Brandon's Backyard Nuptials :: Fort Wayne Wedding Photography

Jill and Brandon’s wedding was my first backyard wedding, and I’m utterly smitten.

From the relaxed pre-wedding feel (I shot the details while groomsmen splashed in the pool and oldies music wafted out of nearby speakers), to the beautiful intimate reception, I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend a Saturday.
