What a beautiful day we had for Austin and Mackenzie’s spring wedding at White Rock Barn in Ossian! Mackenzie designed and created all the signage and stationery for the ceremony and reception and it is just my style! All white with black lettering — CLASSIC! That plus the neutral-toned bridesmaids’ dresses including blush, champagne and beige photographed so beautifully — especially paired with the neutral florals with blush peonies!
All week, my weather app called for 80% chance of rain throughout the day and most of it was at the time of their ceremony! AH! Needless to say, I was a little worried. But I can’t believe how things turned around. The weather was PERFECTION. It was sunny and 75 all-day with low humidity. Absolute perfection. Plus a light sunset glow to end the evening by the pond and the willow tree! UGH. I still can’t get over the set of sunset portraits!
When Mackenzie inquired with me, she said “I always knew I wanted you to be my wedding photographer”. There is truly nothing more special to hear than that when a bride inquires! Getting to know her and Austin has been such a delight. They are so sweet and loved by so many wonderful people. I could not get enough of the way they adoringly look at each other. You’ll see in so many of these photos how lovingly they are to each other. It’s bittersweet that our time together is over!
To the newlyweds, Mr & Mrs Eltzroth,
It was such a joy getting to know both of you during this special season of your lives! You two deserve the absolute best and wish you the happiest marriage! I know you guys woke up in Mexico this morning but I hope you enjoy looking through my favorite images of your day! It was such an honor to capture your day and enjoy your honeymoon!!
