Diamonds and Dust Wedding – Amanda and Matt

This wedding, it was just…so so good. No other way to describe it. The girls were finishing getting ready as we arrived and there was already so much laughter, joy, and emotions running on high. After everyone had their dresses zipped we ventured out for bridal portraits in the MOST PERFECT light, cloudy but bright. I could have taken bridals of Amanda all day long, seriously she was so stunning that I was getting teary from excitement. Amanda wrote sweet letters to her mom, new mother in law, and Matt which everyone read and tears were flowing. Diamonds and Dust is a huge property so the guys headed out to the cabin to hang out before the festivities were to begin and Shane followed along. As the guests began to arrive the clouds rolled in and the gorgeous ceremony site was soon under a down pour. Everyone ran to the barn where the ceremony was quickly shifted. The ceremony was so cozy and intimate with everyone hanging over the balconies and squeezed tight in the barn. The rain stopped right after they were announced as husband and wife (of course!) so were happily ventured outside for portraits while steam clung to the trees in the distance. After we wrapped up portraits the reception began with speeches followed by their first dance. The mother son dance was especially emotional as Matt’s mom had recently suffered a bike accident leaving her unsure if she’d be able to dance with him at all. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house (mine included) as they danced together, just as she had hoped. After the bouquet and garter toss the dance floor opened up and it was so dang fun to shoot, everyone was in party mode and they went nuts all night, punctuated by the sweetest dance between Amanda and her mom.

Amanda and Matt have the biggest hearts of anyone I’ve ever met and their wedding was one I’ll remember fondly as one of our very best.

Courtyard Marriott Lafayette IN Wedding – Courtney and Madden

Courtney and Madden were married on a warm, early fall day at the Courtyard Marriott in Lafayette. Courtney wanted a little bit spooky wedding which meant lots of dark purples and sweet but not scary details throughout. After getting ready the two shared a first look before walking down the aisle and exchanging vows. Afterwards we headed out to the courtyard to do a few portraits before their reception. After dinner their dances started and Courtney and Madden swayed in a cloud of smoke. We ventured outside once the cake was cut for a few more portraits as the sun set and the heat passed. The bouquet toss was followed by the shoe game and their dance floor opened with friends and family having a blast. This was such a sweet wedding and the loveliest way to end September.

Mustard Seed Gardens Wedding – Spencer and Lyndsay

Spencer and Lyndsay’s wedding was my most favorite kind of wedding. Simple, laid back, and sweet with so much meaning in every little detail. We arrived just as Lyndsay was putting on her mother’s wedding dress before she walked down the aisle to an ecstatic Spencer. After their vows under the shade of a gorgeous, old tree in front of their nearest and dearest we shot portraits in the hazy September sun before their reception started. Instead of doing a formal entrance they greeted each guest as they entered the Mustard Seed Gardens barn, such a lovely way to greet each guest. Each table had photos of the two of them at the same age as the table number and sweet little facts about them and their relationship (not to mention the best dang wedding favor of all time, the insanely delicious sugared walnuts Lyndsay and her mom made for the occasion, good lord I could write a whole blog post about them!!!) Dinner was served after everyone was seated followed by a sweet speech from Lyndsay’s father and cutting their beautiful cake. After their first dance and parent dances the guests took to the dance floor and we wrapped up our evening shooting a few more portraits as the sun made its way to the horizon. This was such a special and beautiful day and we were over the moon working with these two!
