This Spring has been brutal with all of the rain so it came as no surprise we ended up with another wet Saturday for Emily + Carmelo's big day up in Highland, Indiana. I actually photographed Carmelo's brother, José's wedding a few years ago and was thrilled to be asked back for this one! Though we ended up needing to move the ceremony inside, Carmelo made a beautiful flowered arch for such an occasion and it really was just as gorgeous as being outside. But, before the day kicked off we got Emily in her dress and swept her right outside for the First Look. And, my goodness what a sweet moment that was! It is always such an honor to be present for those private moments, and especially when they involve tears. Emily was truly a vision and Carmelo's love for her just shone throughout his face. After the First Look we did some bridal portraits under the archway to stay clear of the rain and then tucked everyone back in their rooms for a breather before the ceremony began. With all of their favorite people present, Emily + Carmelo promised to love one another through thick & thin and sealed it with a whole lot of laughter and a kiss. We capped off the evening with dinner, toasts and a dance floor that never slowed down. Seriously, such a fantastic night, you two! Thank you so much for trusting me to document your day and special thanks to Amanda Tranbarger who stepped in as my second for the wedding while Heidi was out of town. You rocked it, girl. Congratulations again, Emily + Carmelo, wishing you a magical Honeymoon in Disney after the school year wraps up!
