Ashley & Austin have such a real, genuine love for not only each other but also their family & friendships. They made this so evident in the way they planned and implemented their wedding day. The day started off full of so many meaningful first looks. Ashley & Austin did first looks with each of their bridal parties and shared some special words of appreciation. Ashley also did a first look with her brother and father, both of which were equally emotional and so sweet. Finally, Ashley & Austin shared their first look together prior to the ceremony and also read some personal vows. We then spent a couple hours getting as many photos done as we could, because after the ceremony Ashley & Austin had planned a special one one one dinner to share those first “just married” moments together and just have some time to soak it all in.
Wedding days can be so busy, Ashley & Austin truly thought through how they could make the absolute most of their day and give all their friends and family some much deserved appreciation and love while also fitting in those personal one-on-one moments as husband and wife. It was a FULL day, one filled with love, celebration and joy. The vision Ashley & Austin had for this day was just that though, they wanted to be surrounded by their family and friends as they committed themselves to one another before their loved ones, God and each other. At their reception they mentioned how this day was everything they imagined, wanted and more and that just makes me so so happy for them. They are such a sweet couple and deserve it all!
Ashley & Austin’s love story began when they met in their college years in Knoxville, Tennessee while attending University of Tennessee. Their love story is so sweet and I just loved their little pops of Tennessee orange incorporated into the wedding day to represent where it all began.🧡
White Willow Farms in Arcadia is a true gem of a wedding venue and what a perfect backdrop for this beautiful couple and their wedding story. Barn wedding venues are some of my favorite venues to photograph wedding days and White Willow in particular tops my list. Not only do I love the gorgeous, elegant white barn, but the ceremony setup outside behind the barn is something out of a wedding magazine. Such an ideal, country landscaped ceremony site that has amazing light for photos no matter the time of day. You can also get the most stunning sunset photos at White Willow Farms, something I’m sure to take advantage of every time I shoot at this Indianapolis area wedding venue.
