JORDAN + KRISTI | Warren, Indiana Summer Wedding

Kristi and Jordan’s beautiful and sweet summer wedding in Warren, Indiana was such a delight to be able to photograph!  From the Church sign congratulating them on their wedding to the hilarious last pose of our full bridal party shots, this wedding was such a fun one to be a part of!

This wedding ended up having a lot of fantastic photo locations!  The sanctuary where the ceremony was held had such warm, glowy light, and the weather was perfect the entire day (even though the weather predictions were not very optimistic).  The location where Jordan and Kristi had their First Look and we did our full bridal party portraits could not have been more perfect and I explain the story behind it a little more around the First Look portion of the post!

I’m excited for you to see these pictures, so let’s get into the Bowlds Wedding Album!

I love it when venues congratulate a bride and groom on their sign!

We started with portraits of the Groom and his men since they were ready a little before the Bride and maids were.

One thing I love about First Looks is that they are so candid and every bit of excitement and joy you see on Kristi and Jordan’s faces is completely real.  After the first look, we took some bride and groom portraits really beautiful location I had found beforehand! A few days before the wedding, I hopped onto google maps to take a virtual tour of Warren since I had never been there before.  I found a little clearing that intrigued me, but google wouldn’t let me look at it very closely, so before the wedding, I drove to the spot I had found, discovered that it was the perfect, private spot for our photos, and got permission to use it!  It turned out to be the perfect little spot, and the weather even cooperated with us!  It was overcast while we took these!

We all headed back to the church and got ready for the ceremony!  The sanctuary was beautifully well lit, and had a warm, and glowy feel that couldn’t have been more perfect for exchanging wedding vows!

One of the groomsmen actually had the idea for the pose below and I absolutely loved everything about how it turned out!!!
