We loved everything about Natalie and Jacob's Southern Indiana wedding! The two planned a perfectly quirky and adorable outdoor wedding at Cedar Ridge just outside of Seymour Indiana. They said "I do" under string lights in the woods, in front of a Teepee, and nailed shut a "first fight" box with love letters and a bottle of wine. The bride wore a two-piece boho wedding gown, a flower crown, and booties. The groom and his guys wore unique floral ties and leather suspenders.
Chelsea and Jake have a great love for sports and the outdoors. They met playing soccer together, and even today they spend time outside of their day jobs to coach soccer. Chelsea is an Ironman (mad respect) and together they backpacked, camped, and conquered the trails at Yosemite last year.
I feel like it has been a really long time since the first time we met Ben and Kathleen. We met them while shooting a wedding in downtown New Albany a few summers ago. Kathleen a bridesmaid, and Ben a groomsman. I would say my first impression was that she was as sweet as can be, and he knew how to have a good time. A year or so later, and the impression hasn't changed and has just become more and more accurate.
I've learned that one of the greatest pleasures of being a wedding photographer is an appreciative bride and groom. Have you ever been thanked so many times you almost didn't know what to say? That is the story of our weekend with Liz and Jared and their families.
Because we are Indiana Wedding Photographers, we see a lot of weddings and a lot of couples. Maybe you know this about me, but I love...LOVE. I mean true love, sacrificial love, the kind that serves the others. The kind that puts others before yourself. I think it is this kind of selfless love that builds incredible relationships and lasting marriages. I believe when this kind of love is modeled by the marriages surrounding us...we are changed by it. I believe it is a privilege to bare witness to this kind of crazy awesome love.
We are so glad these two found us! We joined them at the college campus where they met during orientation. College sweethearts...also just regular ol' in general sweethearts. We enjoyed following them around while they reminisced. So many old memories on this campus.
