The Ceremony

Whitney and Shawn’s day was so perfect. It was a normal Indiana end of summer day raining all morning up until 12:30pm. After that the clouds parted and we had picture perfect weather. The ceremony took place at Grace United Methodist Church church in Lafayette Indiana. What a beautiful church. The pastor there has known Whitney for about 20 years so it was extra special that she married them. In front of 200 of their close family and friends they said I do forever.

 

The Reception

After the ceremony we all headed to The Barn right out side of Romney Indiana. This little slice of farm heaven is a newer venue in Tippecanoe County. *Oh man it made my farm loving heart go pitter pat. * The food was phenomenal, Of course any food Shoups caters is always top notch. After dinner we did the cake and dances then right before sunset we snuck out to finish our Bride and Groom Portrait session. Oh man I am glad we did. The property is so is so beautiful it made for the perfect backdrop for Whitney and Shawn’s big day.
Once we finished Dj Large (Large Sound) kept the dance floor packed he never disappoints!! Here are some of my favorites from Whitney and Shawn’s special day.
