This past winter I met Melissa and Zach for the very first time at their engagement session at Purdue University. It was one of the coldest days we had that winter and one of the only days that the snow came and stuck around for more than a few hours. Here is the link to their Purdue memorial union Engagement session check it out here!
The Wedding day
So much about Melissa and Zach’s day spoke to me. I loved that it was a Friday, I loved the wispy vintage touch Melissa gave each table with antique glass, baby breath and all the twinkle lights that adorned the most beautiful barn I have seen yet. Their special day was at The Barn at Kennedy Farm in lizton Indiana. It was the perfect place for this wedding. Melissa’s maids were stunning in all different gowns in different shades of pale pink. Then oh my Melissa was a show stopper in her beautiful lace gown from Toumas Bridal Boutique in Fort wayne. It was (no lie) one of the hottest days to date so we were quick and efficient. Melissa and Zach did do a first look which was so perfect in front of the barn. After first look and bride and groom portraits we went straight into family portraits which was so nice to get basically all but 4 photos finished before the ceremony and everyone could go inside and cool off.
The ceremony was perfect it was located behind the barn under some big beautiful trees. I loved the mason jars and baby’s breath that decorated the isle. The Officiant had a wonderful little speech and it was perfect for these two Boiler Almuni.
The reception was beautiful the barn was full of love and laughter! Melissa had two Matrons of honor and Zach had two best men all of them had exceptional and meaningful speeches. The food was by It’s all about Thyme it was phenomenal. The cake was so pretty and delicious Janelle Foxworthy and the cupcakes were wonderful by Debbie Biddle did an amazing job. Then the DJ Chris Worth Entertainment was so fun he kept the floor full all night long!
Here are some of my favorites from Melissa and Zach’s special day.

Thank you so much Melissa and Zach for allowing me to be apart of your special day it was truly the BEST day! I still find it funny your engagement session it was 15 degrees outside… and your wedding it was 95+. Ha ha ! I can’t wait to see what is next in this next chapter.
