The Hamer’s {A lifestyle family session at Tuttle Orchards}

Tuttle-Orchard-Indiana-Family-Photography_3632

Oh this sweet family. Faithe was one of the first people I met when my husband was interviewing for a job at College Park Church in Indianapolis.  She hugged me, gave me a hand-written card with a bag of peanut butter cups and told me she had been praying for me even before we met.  And just like that, I felt welcomed, loved and accepted.  In the months since that moment I’ve come to realize that those words characterize the Hamer family. They welcome with open arms, love on others like crazy and have a real gift for making people feel accepted. They have blessed our lives tremendously since we moved to Indiana in June, and I was thrilled to be able to capture some family memories for them at Tuttle Orchards this fall! (Not to mention the fact that their family belongs in a magazine — how cute are their quadruplets?!!!) Hope you enjoy some favorites of our time together :)

Tori & Jeremy {Shabby Chic, Outdoor Farm Wedding in Xenia, Ohio}

RusticOhioBarnWedding_2508

From the bride: “Our inspiration is personalization. We want our day to be so unique and knew that if we focused on our favorite things, not only will it be perfectly unique, but fun and vibrant too. We love spending time at Jeremy’s family farm and want our guests to sit back, and relax, just like we love to do there. We are incorporating family heirlooms such as Jeremy’s grandparents tractors and my great grandparents church pew. We’ve spent a year searching for other neat pieces like a setee for our head table, a vintage menu board, and fire place mantles. Overall we are most excited to dance for the first time surrounded by our friends and family with the farm fields in the background.”
From the moment I received Tori’s email inquiring about my availability to shoot her wedding, I knew that we would be friends. With a shared love of Starbucks, and the fact that she owned a photography business herself, we hit it off right away, and I couldn’t wait to celebrate her marriage to the love of her life. Although it rained for the first half of the day, it didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits! Tori and the girls got ready at a historic hotel in downtown Wilmington, which made for some stunning indoor bridal portraits! Just wait until you see how gorgeous she looks ;) The rain stopped at the end of the ceremony just in time for Tori & Jeremy to ride to the reception in the tractor that Jeremy surprised his bride with.  The reception was filled with gorgeous, sentimental details and amazing florals designed by the bride’s mother! Tori owns her own store (Check it out here —> http://www.tlanedesigns.com/ SO cute!) with some gorgeous collectible pieces, and I loved that she incorporated them into her wedding day!
Tori and Jeremy – thank you for welcoming me into your lives and hearts. I felt like one of the family on your wedding day, and the love and care that you showered on me and everyone around you made your day truly amazing. Your entire day – from the first look with your grandparents, to the first time Jeremy laid eyes on you as a bride, and the looks you shared during your first dance – was so meaningful, emotional, and intimate. You are surrounded by so many family and friends that clearly cherish you both, and I know they will join me in wishing you a long life together filled with joy, laughter, and ‘bunches of love’ :) Enjoy some of my favorites from the day!

Emily & Kenny {A Sweet Outdoor Wedding at The Willow Tree, Tipp City Ohio}

 

EmilyandKennyWedding_2342From the Bride:  “We wanted an outdoor/vintage wedding. The venue reminded me of my late grandmother and I knew it was the one because of that. I think forget-me-nots are a very romantic flower (in name and look) and so the color scheme evolved from forget-me-nots. We have been together for seven years now, and are just thrilled to be officially tying the knot.”

Emily and Kenny’s wedding day was sweet and simple, filled with laughter, tears, emotion, and lots of dancing! It took place at one of my favorite venues – The Willow Tree – and I always love any opportunity to shoot there :) The weather was perfect for their outdoor ceremony and lantern exit. We were so happy to celebrate this special day with them! Enjoy some favorites from this beautiful wedding day!
