A Gorgeous Fall Wedding in Ferdinand, IN

Wedding

Olivia and Kyle | Ferdinand, IN

A Sweet Fall Wedding in Ferdinand, IN | Olivia and Kyle | Bret and Brandie Photography0100.jpgWow, there has been so much excitement around the Nowak household lately between selling #ourbrickbaby and purchasing a new house. It has been a little crazy and chaotic (in the best way), but we are so lucky to have our B&B couples and our dream job to make the crazy more manageable! It’s couples like Olivia and Kyle that make our job oh so incredible! Man, it feels like we have known these two for what seems like an eternity. We instantly clicked and became bffs. We immediately fell in love with them when we met them to book their wedding. It was instantaneous that we knew we were obsessed with Olivia and Kyle so we were always beyond excited at any chance to see them!! To be around them is to love them and they are so incredibly sweet. Their love is soooo magical and pure. All of our hangouts, double date nights, field trip and their beautiful engagement session led up to the most magical wedding day EVER!! Ahhhhh!!!!! We had such a fun day with them and left with huge smiles on our faces. We have loved reliving how blessed we are that we got to be the ones to celebrate with them on one of the most important days of their lives!!

The morning of their wedding, we arrived to Olivia and her bride tribe getting ready at the Ferdinand Community Center in Ferdinand, Indiana. They were all giggling and ready to shower Olivia and Kyle with love and attention all day long!! Olivia’s first look with her dad is something I will remember forever. It was so sweet and magical as he was literally radiating pride and joy as he saw her for the first time. My heart was so full in that moment watching a father preparing to give away his daughter 😍 

Next up, Olivia did a reveal to her bridesmaids and it was stinking precious! There were smiles, giggles and tears shed all around!! Her bride tribe jumped into her arms and gushed over how beautiful she was in her stunning wedding dress!! I love a good, attentive bride tribe! They make our days go soooo much more smoothly!!

Finally, we ventured over to the church so that Olivia and Kyle could tie the knot. They got married in a big beautiful Catholic church and it was stunning!!! Before the ceremony, we went upstairs for an intimate moment between Olivia and Kyle. The two of them held hands, said a prayer and exchanged written letters. There was not a dry eye around us in that moment. I mean, I am an emotional person typically, but I was SOBBING!! That moment was so sweet and beautiful. It was little moments like that where I felt like we could almost touch their love! Moments like that make our job incredible. Getting to live in and capture those moments is extraordinary!! #bestjobever

Olivia and Kyle went their separate ways as they got ready to officially see each other at the altar. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, but there is just something so elegant about Catholic ceremonies!! I love the oh so traditional and classic vibe that a Catholic church carries. They shared the sweetest vows as they promised each other forever. Their ceremony was very personal (our favorite kind!!) and at the end, they sealed the seal with a kiss!

Now that they were husband and wife, it was time to let the party begin! We knocked out their bridal party photos and family photos before the bridal party ventured to Fleig’s, a hometown staple bar in Ferdinand. It is always so much fun to watch the bridal party hanging out before the reception in their favorite places!! After we left Fleig’s, we headed back to the Ferdinand Community Center to end the night with the reception. Their family and friends surrounded them with love and laughter all night long on the dance floor. We just had the most extraordinary day with Olivia and Kyle and we are so excited that we got to capture these sweet moments with them!!
