Danielle and Sawyer had an amazing Fall Indiana Winery Wedding! I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to be a part of such a beautiful wedding day. This one was seriously one of my favorites of the entire season! Danielle and Sawyer put so much effort into creating an effortlessly romantic and beautiful day, and it turned out incredible!
These two are SO special to me. Danielle and I practically grew up together, and we spent middle + high school being the best of friends. It was so surreal to think about the times we dreamt about our future wedding days when we were younger, and now finally being there! It was SO special to reconnect with her and her lover! I had so fun catching up with her family, and see tons of familiar faces from throughout the years.
I love this job for so many reasons, and connection is a huge part of it. It is always so fun to meet up with new friends and old, and being a part of the best day of their lives. It never gets old! My clients are some of my best friends, and I love when I get to take photos of people from my personal life! Sawyer actually went to the same high school as Danielle, but they didn’t start dating until a bit afterwards. They are absolutely meant to be together, and being a part of their day is something I am so thankful for!
We definitely need to take a moment to talk about this venue, it was perfect! Four Corners Winery in Valparaiso Indiana is fairly new to the area. It’s settled right in the heart of Indiana, in the center of where I grew up. Since it’s a new venue, it felt really modern and sleek. The venue felt really small, cozy and quaint which is exactly what these two wanted! This venue flawlessly combines farmhouse elegance with modern charm. I loved all the rustic, dark wood features! Danielle and Sawyer KILLED it with the decor as well! They definitely played off of the modern farmhouse vibe. Their dining and reception area felt so cozy and eclectic, and I loved all their earthy colors.
Danielle and Sawyer shared such a sweet, emotional ceremony with their friends and family. Like I mentioned before, Danielle and I have a really special connection, along with her family. I loved that I was able to play a part in creating this memory for her! Even though it was September, the weather was perfect! The skies were blue, and the sunlight was glowing! Their arch was nestled right below these lush, droopy trees. It was beautiful!
The reception area was perfect! I loved that it felt really intimate and cozy, while still providing tons of room to move! The barn, filled to the brim with their favorite people, was so fun! I had the best time connecting with new and old friends, and getting to do what I love while I was at it! As the sun started to set, I knew I wanted to steal Danielle and Sawyer away for some portraits. The outdoor area of the winery felt so romantic! Danielle and Sawyer were able to wind through the vines, holding each other close and looking so dang cute. Golden hour was TO DIE FOR! Seriously, one of the best i’ve ever seen. Every moment I spent alongside them was filled with so much love!
Once the sun went down, everybody hit the dance floor! I loved the twinkly lights strung above, it felt so romantic! Every single guest was so hype for these two! It truly was an unforgettable evening. I had such an incredible time dancing and celebrating with so many familiar faces. This wedding day was such a refreshing one for me, and I loved being able to connect with so many incredible people! Danielle and Sawyer are the cutest ever, and I’m so grateful I was able to be a part of this day!
