After this wedding, I’m ALL about brunch weddings!!! Great food, cooler weather in the morning (Saturday was one of the hottest days of the year and we were inside for the day once the heat peaked!!), early morning glowy light, mimosas, and more.
I got the honor of jet setting to Indiana…. just kidding… I drove! Veronica is from Winona Lake, Indiana, so I got to leave Chicago for the weekend to join them!
Veronica and Erik rented out a cute little bed and breakfast near their ceremony spot. When I arrived everyone was eating homemade breakfast and waking up to get ready for the day. Then the guys headed out to their own space to get ready.
Then Veronica and I hopped in a car to go meet Erik for their first look. We did it in the park where they had their ceremony. Erik was so happy to see her! And I mean, who wouldn’t have a huge smile seeing Veronica!? She looked STUNNING!
Did I mention the glowy light!? I was obnoxiously squealing the whole time during their portraits! I knew after their engagement session that their wedding portraits would be STUNNING! But man, I was not prepared for THIS LEVEL of amazing!!!
Their bridal party looked sooo good too! And the purple colors were GORGEOUS! Everyone surrounding Veronica and Erik on their wedding day was SO kind! It’s no surprise that Veronica and Erik are such sweet people, because everyone on their day was welcoming, friendly, and had a smile on their face!
I’ve also decided that every couple should have confetti poppers at their ceremony. SO fun! Veronica and Erik wrote their own sweet vows to each other and promised to watch the Bachelor with her and eat Portillos with him when she really wants McDonald’s.
Then it was time for AMAZING food at The Vic which is owned by one 10 Craft Meatery in Warsaw, Indiana! They had the cutest space and it was perfect for a brunch wedding. Guests mingled, had mimosas at the mimosa bar, ate amazing locally sourced foods, and celebrated these two!
Before Veronica and Erik drove off to go enjoy their evening together and pack for Paris, we did a few portraits before they went. Because when you’ve got a couple this cute, ya have to!
Veronica and Erik, you two are truly such kind and warm people. Your day truly showed how loved you are and where you guys get your amazing qualities from! I loved being a part of your day!!! Thanks for giving me this honor!
