Fall is definitely on it’s way in, which makes this the perfect time to share Anna and Brian’s wedding, which was held at the wonderful County Line Orchard in Hobart, IN.
I met up with Anna as her mom was helping her into the wedding dress.
Anna even had the most adorable shoes to wear for her walk down the aisle.
Meanwhile, Leah was with Brian in the orchard, where he was showing off his juggling skills.
Brian quickly dropped the apples when word arrived that Anna was on her way for their first meeting. I was thrilled that the weather was so perfect. And Anna and Brian both looked great for this important moment.
After the first meeting, Anna, Brian and I set out to explore the orchard and take some pre-wedding photos.
This is the second time I’ve shot at County Line, and I hope to go back many times. I could spend hours with couples, walking the grounds and posing in front of the scenery.
The wedding party joined us soon after for some group shots.
As the ceremony time neared, we headed back toward the reception hall.
Anna was a happy bride!
And the couple together made for great models.
Anna and Brian took a seat just as the guests began to arrive.
Anna’s dad knew a good photo-op when he saw it.
Her bridesmaid made sure we hid before all of the guests arrived.
We had to get some quick photos in the silo first!
Everyone was taken to the ceremony site by a tractor-drawn carriage.
The guests found their seats just as the ceremony was beginning.
The mandolin began to play…
…and Anna was escorted down the aisle.
Anna’s mom got a little misty as Anna took her place next to Brian.
His grandmother checked out the beautiful, clear sky.
Anna’s maid of honor was all smiles while the couple delivered their vows to each other.
I loved the floral work that wove through the trellis.
They were married under this giant oak tree… it was absolutely gorgeous.
And then they were married! Congratulations!
I posed the wedding party for a bit while the guests cleared out.
Someone was taking a souvenir!
The tractor pulled the guests back to the big barn, which was where the reception was being held.
And while the guests enjoyed cocktail hour, Leah and I set out to take some detail shots.
The bouquets were constructed of sheet music! Anna and Brian made them together. Such a great job!
Mmmmm… the wedding dessert was Apple Cider Donuts- a County Line Orchard specialty. The Orchard provided all of the delicious food and drinks for the day.
There were games for guests to play during cocktail hour, like this bean bag toss.
The tables were set and ready to go for the wedding banquet.
While guests finished their meals, the Maid of Honor took the microphone to give her speech.
The speeches were all full of laughs, memories and happy tears.
Brian and Anna shared their first dance when the speeches were completed.
They made their big finish…
…and then everyone hit the dance floor. Conga!
I am not sure what is happening here!?
The guests enjoyed the drinks…
…and the music, which was provided by Amanda from Toast & Jam.
It was a fun-filled day for sure. As I was leaving, I got one last shot of the reception area…
…and took the ring shot. Brian proposed to Anna by sneaking this fortune into a cookie that was giving to Anna after her birthday meal.
Thanks for a great day, Anna and Brian! Congratulations on your marriage!
