AN INTIMATE BACKYARD WEDDING IN INDIANA / JORDAN x CHANNA

“ A CHILLED OUT FAMILY GATHERING IN THE WOODS” - CHANNA’S WORDS WHEN I ASKED HER TO DESCRIBE HER WEDDING DAY VIBE.

I ARRIVED TO THE PROPERTY 20 MINUTES EARLY - JUST TO SEE THE SPACE ALL SET UP AND CHECK IN ON CHANNA AND HER GIRLS.

IT WAS HOT - OCTOBER WEATHER IN INDIANA IS SO UNPREDICTABLE. THE AC WAS BLASTING AND FANS WERE ON IN THE TENT.

CHANNA WROTE HER VOWS WHILE I SHOT HER DETAILS. HER GIRLS CUT THE TULLE UNDERNEATH HER DRESS BECAUSE IT WAS SO DAMN ITCHY. JORDAN GOT THERE AND WAS COOL AS A CUCUMBER IN VODKA. THE BONFIRE WAS LIT BEFORE 3PM AND CREATED THIS GORGEOUS HAZE AROUND THEIR CEREMONY SPOT. GUESTS ARRIVED AND IT WAS LIKE A FAMILIAR AND COMFORTABLE FAMILY GATHERING.

J+C SWAPPED VOWS AND THEN IT POURED. GUESTS ATE INCREDIBLE BBQ AND SIPPED BEER + WINE WHILE THE DJ GOT EVERYONE PUMPED.

CHANNA SURPRISED JORDAN BY SWITCHING THEIR CAKE TO SPRINKLES AND HIS REACTION WAS PRICELESS - TAKE A LOOK FOR YOURSELF.

SOAKING THESE IMAGES IN ONCE AGAIN AND LOVING EVERY SECOND.

ENJOY.

xx,
