The Engagement session
I met Kyle and Abby at The Courtyard Marriott Bridal show at the beginning of 2017! Truth be told, I have known both of their families for a long time. They booked me on the spot! Their session was at my ABSOLUTE favorite place ever Dulls Christmas Tree farm. Check out their engagement session blog HERE.
Abby & Kyle’s special day the high was a brisk 8 degrees. Woah! That didn’t matter, this day was beautiful in every way! The happy couple got ready at The Courtyard Marriott, also doing a first look. The staircase at the Marriott was the perfect place for this special moment. Their ceremony was at St. Thomas Aquinas in West Lafayette, Indiana. This church is so special to them and it was the perfect place to start this new chapter. Abby looked breath taking in a two piece wedding gown from Nancy’s Bridal Boutique in Indianapolis. Her flowers were designed by the talented Heather from Heathers Flowers, they were beautiful as always.
Kyle loved very handsome in his tux from Louie’s Tux shop. After the ceremony we headed to the Purdue University campus for the outdoor photos. YES we took photos outside in 6 degree weather (at that time). You know what … it was Magical … absolutely magical. I am a lover of the COLD and the snow, so I was in my element. The whole bridal party was great with the cold and we made sure to be quick and efficient.
After our campus photos we headed back to the Marriott where we enjoyed a delicious dinner and a night of lots of dancing. The Dj Jay large of LARGE sound DJ LLC played hit after hit. The dance floor was full the entire evening.
Now enjoy some of my favorite images from Abby & Kyle’s special day.
^ The wedding favor treats from Richelle in a handbasket were absolutely delicious!!
My personal FAVORITE bakery ( Mammaws sweet shoppe) knocked it out of the park with the Horlacher’s wedding. Both cakes were gorgeous and tasted amazing.
Perfect grooms cake for Abby’s favorite farmer. <3
