Edith and Ryan’s Wedding

Edith and Ryan made their sacred vows at Our Lady of Hope Catholic Church in Washington, Indiana. Edith is Mexican and it was a treat to witness the wedding traditions of The Lasso and the Arras Wedding Coins. The Lasso or “lazo” is a double rosary worn by both the bride and groom during a portion of the ceremony. It represents unity and protection of the couple. The Arras Coins are give to the bride by her groom to represent his support and care and sharing of worldly goods. The ceremony was beautiful, and the church, breathtaking. The prayers were in both English and Spanish for the benefit of all the guests. Afterwards, it was off to Jasper, Indiana and Klubhaus 61, a newer reception venue. We took some informal photos of the wedding party and the newlyweds before entering into the cocktail hour. There was a full bar with signature cocktails, hors d’oerves and a lively mariachi band. After a formal, seated dinner, there was cake, toasts and a whole lot of dancing! That floor was jumpin’, I tell you!

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Willoughby!

Lexi and Derek’s Wedding

Lexi and Derek had a dream. They wanted to be married outdoors on the green of The Evansville Country Club. Because of a very rainy, stormy day, they didn’t get their wish and the wedding ceremony had to be moved inside. They didn’t miss a beat, moved all the chairs inside and had a moving, romantic ceremony indoors. They were further rewarded with sunny skies right after! We took advantage of that and took tons of fun photos outside with the wedding party. The reception was a fine affair with many New Orleans/Louisiana touches as Lexi’s family hails from down South. There were Mardi Gras bead favors, special Southern cocktails and even a Second Line at the end of the reception. What a great couple and family! Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Hinsey!

 

 

Nicole and Mitch’s Wedding

The Troyers were married at the spectacular St. Boniface Catholic Church in Evansville, IN. This event had all the wonderful May Wedding touches including real lily of the valley in the bouquets, very classic and traditional. They exchanged vows in an early evening ceremony to a packed house of family and friends. Afterwards, they greeted everyone outside the church with their dog Abby, who was a very special wedding attendant that day. We took a few fun photos outside the Old Vanderburgh County Courthouse before going into the elegant reception. The happy couple and their guests enjoyed cocktails, gourmet appetizers and a live band called DUDE! It was quite a party!

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Troyer!

Katy and Jess’ Wedding

Katy and Jess tied the knot this Spring at the beautiful First United Methodist Church in Henderson, Kentucky. They decided to have a First Look before the wedding, so they met on the church steps to have a private moment before the day went into full swing. The sanctuary made a breathtaking backdrop for their marriage vows. Immediately after the ceremony, they headed to their reception at The Elk Lodge where they greeted their guests as they arrived–a great alternative to a receiving line at the church! Close to sunset, I stole them from their reception for a few romantic photos on the grounds at the Elk Lodge. It was a lovely day, full of emotion and fun and wonderful wedding details: I’m a BIG fan of real flowers at a wedding and there were lots of incredible arrangements at this one. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Park!

 

 

 

Tiffany and Luke’s Wedding

Tiffany and Luke were married on a beautiful Spring day in Henderson, Kentucky at Zion Baptist Church.  The loving couple were surrounded by numerous family and friends as they took their vows in the sanctuary. After a “grand exit” with bubbles from well-wishers, they joined their guests at the reception in the church fellowship hall. Tiffany looked so elegant in her House of White Bridal gown and it’s pretty clear that Luke is truly in love with his new wife. At the end of the day, we took a stroll through the church grounds for a quiet, romantic photo session. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. McCamish!

Stephanie and Andy’s Classically Elegant Wedding

Stephanie and Andy are quite a pair, whenever you see them together, they are giggling about one of their in-jokes or kissing. Sounds like a great start to me! Their wedding was at the lovely St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in downtown Evansville. The beautiful courtyard at the church and the iconic red doors made  stunning backdrops for many of many of the photos.  After the fully packed church ceremony, the Flittners were greeted by their guests at The Old National Events Plaza. The ballroom was bedecked in black, white and silver decor, very elegant for an evening dinner reception. After several toasts from family, the dance floor was opened up by Evansville’s own favorite party band, The Pits.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Flittner! 

Farmer & Frenchman Wedding Venue Style Shoot

 

I had the distinct pleasure of being approached by Katy and Hubert Mussat–owners of Farmer & Frenchman–welcoming me to photograph their brand new winery and wedding/event venue. We had so much fun planning and preparing for the event, coming up with a French countryside theme. The idea of models came up and I asked Katy if she and Hubert might like to do the honors? These two were incredible models! I could not get enough of shooting them, they have such style and undeniable chemistry as a couple. With help from Petal & Pine for flowers, Sweet Betty’s bakery for the cake and sweets, the Beauty Room for makeup, as well as loads more help from Katy’s family members–this photo shoot turned out perfectly. I had a great time and made some amazing new friends!

Trisha + Mike’s Wedding Day

Trisha and Mike are a great couple, they are laid-back, confident, friendly and fun. It was a pleasure photographing their wedding at St. Boniface Catholic Church in Evansville, IN. The sanctuary is breathtakingly ornate, just stunning. It’s a backdrop that really needs no extra decor at all. After the “I Do’s” we took a few fun pics outside the front of the church. Trisha’s dress was gorgeous and looked even better in motion, so I asked Mike to spin her a bit!

Next, on to the tent reception at Trisha’s family homestead. The guests enjoyed poolside cocktails  as I took a few romantic photos of the newlyweds on the property. After they entered the reception, a stunning dinner followed by toasts, speeches and cake cutting. The beautiful tent was immaculately decorated in shades of gold with orchids and baby’s breath floral arrangements. what a feast for the eyes–and the camera!

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Cahill! Thank you for choosing me for your wedding photographer.

Elizabeth + Caleb Get Hitched

What an amazing, clear May day for a wedding. And these two, so visibly in love and enjoying every moment of their day. The ceremony was held at Bluegrass UMC, with Caleb’s father presiding (he’s the church pastor!) There were many wonderful areas for photos on the church property and we took full advantage of them. The reception took place at Holizer Hall where the dancefloor was crowded all night! Congrats, Mr. and Mrs. Heiman! I enjoyed being part of your day.

Melissa + Ian’s Spring Fling Engagement Session

It was a warm, sunny day at Harmonie State Park for Melissa and Ian’s engagement session. We found a few pretty spots for photos, had some laughs and spent a great deal of time trying to dodge all the mosquitos! They didn’t stop us, ha! We then headed to New Harmony where The Labyrinth and the flowering trees made for some breathtaking backdrops. Melissa and Ian were so fun, playful and very much in love. They will be married this June in Evansville.

Trisha + Mike: Engagement Session

It was a beautiful Spring day, complete with dogs, walks, barns, romance and champagne! Trisha and Mike will be married in June at St. Boniface Catholic Church in Evansville. The reception will be on Trisha’s family property–the same place these photos were taken!  Enjoy my favorites from their photo shoot.
