I never thought that I would enjoy such a busy time in our lives, but wedding season brings so much joy to Bret and I. We may be exhausted at times, but our heart is SO stinking full constantly! The fall season is typically our busiest time of the year and sometimes sitting down to start our blogs is a little breather for us. Not only that, but it gives us so much joy reminiscing over recent weddings and sessions. We have LOVED reminiscing over Jocelyn and Austin’s wedding! Follow along with us as we walk you through their absolutely perfect day!!
Jocelyn and Austin’s wedding was such a beautiful day! I want you to imagine the most gorgeous fall day surrounded by the sweetest family and the most loving friends!! If you add in the sweetest couple who love each other more than anything to that equation you have the most perfect day!! Ahhhhh, it was seriously so stinking amazing!
We arrived that morning to the home of Jocelyn’s parents to meet up with Jocelyn and her bride tribe. Bret was able to snuggle in with his fun detail shots! Jocelyn put together allllllll the fun bridal details for Bret to play with. She even tossed in extra invites and fun things because she wanted to make sure he had everything he could possibly need which Bret was obsessed with! How stinking fun is that?!? I had a blast watching the girls giggle and get ready! My favorite part was watching the bridesmaids see Jocelyn as a bride for first time! Their reveal was so magical! All of those sweet girls giggled, cried and jumped into Jocelyn’s arms telling her how beautiful she looked!
Up next, we loaded up and headed to St. Mary’s Church in Huntingburg, Indiana. Austin was anxiously awaiting our arrival for the first look with his new bride. Jocelyn tapped him on the shoulder and when he turned around, I am not sure we have ever seen a smile that big. Austin grinned from ear to ear!!! The two of them hugged, kissed, held hands and kept stealing glances of each other! Gosh, we just love a heart-warming first look!!! There is just something so special about those few moments alone together before the hustle and bustle of your big day!
After the sweet first look, we were able to capture some fun bridal party photos with the sweetest bridal party. But for real, they were so awesome!! Before we knew it, it was time for the ceremony! YAY! Jocelyn and Austin exchanged their vows during a traditional Catholic ceremony! We love love love the oh so classic feel of tying the knot during a Catholic mass! There is something so calming and so serene! After they promised forever to each other, we dove right into family photos so that both of their sweet families could love on them! We got so many great photos!! We knocked out some final husband and wife portraits since Jocelyn and Austin were finally MARRIED!!!
Before heading to the reception, the newlyweds and their bridal party ventured to a local tavern where they celebrated Jocelyn and Austin’s nuptials!! How fun is that?!?! We all headed back to a reception full of family and friends ready to celebrate and dance the night away. The room was an eruption of joy and laughter all evening long!! We loved getting to celebrate with Jocelyn and Austin and cannot wait for them to see this sneak peek!!!
