Emily & Brock’s Wedding . Ft. Wayne IN Wedding Photographer, Columbia City IN Wedding Photographer

fortwaynerainwedding_0149Emily & Brock were married on her parents property last Saturday.  They’d been preparing the ceremony area for MONTHS, with planting, weeding, trimming, mowing, etc.  So when forecast said RAIN-ALL-DAY, we were all a little disheartened, as it seemed we needed to switch to plan B, ceremony in the tent instead of the garden.

BUT!

These two are laid back, and awesome.  And when the rain let up a little right before the ceremony, Emily said “Let’s do it!  Guests can stand!” (as the chairs had already been moved to the tent.)  So we went for it!  They got married in the sprinkling rain and it was PERFECT!  They didn’t let a little weather interrupt what they were there for, to marry the love of their life.

I’m so happy that they got the wedding they’d envisioned….just a little damper than expected .  😉fortwaynerainwedding_0150fortwaynerainwedding_0151fortwaynerainwedding_0152fortwaynerainwedding_0154fortwaynerainwedding_0155fortwaynerainwedding_0163fortwaynerainwedding_0156fortwaynerainwedding_0157fortwaynerainwedding_0253fortwaynerainwedding_0158fortwaynerainwedding_0159fortwaynerainwedding_0160fortwaynerainwedding_0161fortwaynerainwedding_0163-1fortwaynerainwedding_0164Emily is a crier, which is MY FAVORITE!!!!  This impromptu prayer time had some tears flowing.fortwaynerainwedding_0165fortwaynerainwedding_0166fortwaynerainwedding_0167fortwaynerainwedding_0168fortwaynerainwedding_0169fortwaynerainwedding_0170fortwaynerainwedding_0171fortwaynerainwedding_0172fortwaynerainwedding_0173fortwaynerainwedding_0174fortwaynerainwedding_0175fortwaynerainwedding_0176fortwaynerainwedding_0177fortwaynerainwedding_0178Emily’s First Look with her dad.  And more tears!fortwaynerainwedding_0179fortwaynerainwedding_0180fortwaynerainwedding_0181Ceremony time!  The chairs had been moved to the tent, so guests stood to watch.  And it worked great!fortwaynerainwedding_0182fortwaynerainwedding_0183fortwaynerainwedding_0184As they were walking down the aisle, I heard Emily’s mom say to her,

“Look at all of these people!  They.  Love.  You!”

And that is a beautiful picture of the job of a mother, to remind our children over, and over, and over throughout their life how much they are loved.  fortwaynerainwedding_0185fortwaynerainwedding_0204fortwaynerainwedding_0186fortwaynerainwedding_0187fortwaynerainwedding_0188fortwaynerainwedding_0189fortwaynerainwedding_0190fortwaynerainwedding_0191fortwaynerainwedding_0192fortwaynerainwedding_0193We found a few beautiful LARGE trees to shoot under to stay dry and still get some gorgeous outdoor portraits!fortwaynerainwedding_0194fortwaynerainwedding_0195fortwaynerainwedding_0196Clear umbrellas: my new best friend.fortwaynerainwedding_0197fortwaynerainwedding_0198fortwaynerainwedding_0199fortwaynerainwedding_0200fortwaynerainwedding_0201fortwaynerainwedding_0202fortwaynerainwedding_0203fortwaynerainwedding_0205Proof of our successful portrait time, wet & muddy sneakers.fortwaynerainwedding_0206fortwaynerainwedding_0207fortwaynerainwedding_0208fortwaynerainwedding_0209fortwaynerainwedding_0210fortwaynerainwedding_0211fortwaynerainwedding_0212fortwaynerainwedding_0213fortwaynerainwedding_0214fortwaynerainwedding_0215fortwaynerainwedding_0216fortwaynerainwedding_0217Party Time!fortwaynerainwedding_0218fortwaynerainwedding_0219But first, Champagne!fortwaynerainwedding_0220fortwaynerainwedding_0221fortwaynerainwedding_0222fortwaynerainwedding_0223fortwaynerainwedding_0224fortwaynerainwedding_0225fortwaynerainwedding_0226fortwaynerainwedding_0227fortwaynerainwedding_0228fortwaynerainwedding_0229fortwaynerainwedding_0230fortwaynerainwedding_0231fortwaynerainwedding_0232fortwaynerainwedding_0233fortwaynerainwedding_0234I love how Emily included her mom in her wedding day!  She walked her down the aisle, with her dad.  And she shared a special dance with each parent.  There is a sign that you’ve got a great relationship with your daughter.  I loved it!fortwaynerainwedding_0235fortwaynerainwedding_0236fortwaynerainwedding_0237fortwaynerainwedding_0238fortwaynerainwedding_0239fortwaynerainwedding_0240fortwaynerainwedding_0241fortwaynerainwedding_0242fortwaynerainwedding_0243fortwaynerainwedding_0244fortwaynerainwedding_0245fortwaynerainwedding_0246fortwaynerainwedding_0247fortwaynerainwedding_0248fortwaynerainwedding_0249fortwaynerainwedding_0250fortwaynerainwedding_0251fortwaynerainwedding_0252God Bless you, Mr. & Mrs. Hessenzahl!  I’m so glad I could be the one to capture your wedding day bliss!
