We are so very excited to share this next blog with you, friends! There is nothing more magical to us than a beautiful couple and a dream venue! Dana and Blake are naturals in front of the camera. (They first made that clear to us during their engagement session!!) With that being said, you can imagine how pumped we were to finally be meeting them for their wedding day at our favorite hometown venue in Rockport, Indiana! The Corner House is so close to home and is just everything that southern Indiana wedding dreams are made of! The venue and the staff make our job EASY! 😉 We absolutely love our weddings there, but, friends, if possible, we love Dana and Blake even more than that!!
We arrived on a beautiful sunshine-filled day. For real though, it was a summer day that we dream about in southern Indiana amidst all of the typical heat and humidity! We arrived to a house full of giggly girls zooming around the house getting their hair and makeup done. The Corner House has the most beautiful upstairs bridal suite for getting ready. We love all of the natural light that pours into the room! The vibe that was in the air that day was absolutely magical!
Before we knew it, we were getting Dana and Blake ready for their first look. They anxiously awaited each other in front of the barns. They were soooo excited to see each other for the first time that afternoon! Before the first look, they each wrote each other letters. They read them back to back and it was one of the most beautiful moments that we’ve had to the pleasure to witness. Tears were shed and laughter was all around us! After reading their letters, Dana and Blake spun around and the biggest smiles broke across their faces. Blake’s eyes were glittered with love and Dana had the sweetest smile the entire time! The two of them spent the moment obsessing and gushing complements to one another.
Next we zipped right into portraits while sweet Abi was making her way to the barn. Abi is Blake’s daughter and in true 7 year old fashion, she was having the time of her life!! Dana and Blake’s wedding day was not just a celebration for the two of them, but also for Abi. She was so excited to have her moment in the spotlight. Dana, Blake, and Abi were so loving to one another all day and it was the most heart-warming thing. When we did the first look with Abi and Blake, Abi erupted into giggles as her dad saw her. It was pretty obvious that once a daddy’s girl, always a daddy’s girl!
We spent the rest of the afternoon under the southern Indiana sun with the entire bridal party laughed and giggled the afternoon away. We were able to get sooooo many beautiful shots!! It was then time for what we had all been waiting for – CEREMONY TIME! Dana and Blake tied the knot on top of the hill surrounded by their closest family and friends. It was one of the most beautiful ceremonies EVER! They locked eyes the whole time as they excitedly exchanged vows and sweet glances with each other! Once married, the bridal party popped a bottle of champagne to celebrate! This group was oh so much fun!
As the sun was starting to set, the four of us headed out for their sunset session. Oh my goodness, guys, just look at those shots!! THEY ARE TO-DIE-FOR!!!! Ahhhhhh! Sunset sessions are our FAV! We love getting to watch the newlyweds twirl, dance, and giggle while it’s just the two of them for a bit! Once we tied up those shots, Dana and Blake danced the night away in the barn under the stars!
We feel so honored that we were able to capture such a beautiful day with Dana and Blake. We love you two so much and wish you all the happiness in the world!
