You may remember seeing Chandra and Alex in photos from their engagement session which took place last summer. They are such a great couple, and their October wedding could not have been more beautiful. We ended up with the most perfect Fall day that I think I could have imagined! Not too hot, not too cold, and rich colors everywhere that you looked! (Can you tell that all of this winter grayness is making me miss the color of Spring, Summer, and Fall?!)
Chandra and Alex decided to see each other before the ceremony, finish nearly all of their wedding photos beforehand, and then have plenty of time to enjoy with their guests. The church was just minutes away from Amish Acres in Nappanee, Indiana, which turned out to be a fabulous spot for pictures. Photos can tell the story much better than words, so here you go…
Chandra’s beautiful dress and a few of the decorations…
At Amish Acres…
I love the blue sky in this first shot!!
We found this great red barn, which we all loved as the background for a few photos. It contrasted with the vibrant, green grass perfectly and looked great with the reds, oranges, and greens of the bouquets!
By the way, I just ordered a sample canvas gallery wrap of Chandra with her bridesmaids in the background. I should have it in time for the Muncie, Indiana Bridal Show at the Horizon Center on January 25! I can’t wait to see it on canvas!
Look at that gorgeous fall bouquet!
Here is a quick shot from the ceremony that Rajeev took as Chandra and Alex were exchanging rings. Nice!
After the ceremony, the happy couple exited the church with bubbles flying everywhere!
In the shot below, you can see Rajeev in the corner. In the shot after that, you’ll see the shot from his perspective! I love fisheye shots of couples exiting the church!
On the way to the reception, we stopped at DeFries Garden for a few photos of Chandra and Alex in the late-day sunlight. We were only there for a few short minutes, but it was well worth the stop! I am so glad that Chandra and Alex were familiar with the spot and were able to suggest it.
Don’t they look happy together?
Chandra and Alex, covering your wedding was an absolute joy. We loved every minute of it!! Thanks for trusting us to capture your day! We wish you all the best!!
