Elite Banquet Hall Wedding – Sarah and Rob

Sarah and Rob’s wedding was the perfect start to what is going to be an amazing (and BUSY!) wedding season. When I had first met Sarah and she told me her wedding was mildly cajun themed I was over the moon as a fellow LA native myself but a little confused about how they would pull it off. When I walked in Saturday to Elite Banquet Hall in Kokomo everything about their wedding was perfectly “them”. From the frog centerpieces, to the moss hanging from the ceremony arch, even the date which honored Sarah’s late father was so true to their personalities. So many friends and family showed up to support them and give their love that a few people had to stand in the back and there was barely any room to move around. During the reception it was the same thing, so many hugs and smiles filled the room that you had to squeeze between tables to try to catch them all.

This is Sarah and Rob’s story:

Amanda and Dalton – Engaged

This engagement session has got to be my coldest to date. I shot a session in 2 ft snow that wasn’t as cold as this one. That didn’t stop Amanda and Dalton though! We braved the freezing wind, ice cold sleet that was blowing on and off, and all around chilly atmosphere to capture their love. At least they were a little warmer holding on to each other. We escaped some of the wind by jumping in the Kokomo skate park, the full pipe was the only place to hide! After the wind died down a smidge we went into the wet woods and finished their shoot in the lawn at Jackson Morrow Park. Thanks for being tough cookies, Amanda and Dalton!

Hunter and Aaron – Engaged

Hunter and Aaron met us for an engagement session on a COLD Saturday at the railroad bridge downtown and I knew right away watching Hunter walk on that scary bridge in heels that this would be a fun session. They were so sweet and cuddly with each other, you can really tell they like each other or it just might have been because it was so dang cold! We had a blast shooting these downtown Kokomo and at the Kokomo Reservoir. Thanks Hunter and Aaron, you guys were amazing!
