There are so many cool stories tied into this blog, I don’t even know where to start!
Chelsie & Evan’s wedding day was ah-mazing. It was our first ever leap year wedding and was the last wedding we had the pleasure to photograph as wedding photographers before Covid-19 appeared(go awayyyyy Covid and Carole Baskin!).
It was also our first wedding at The Kokomo Hobson, which is not only a DREAM wedding venue, it’s also run by the sweetest staff. Two of which (Bo & Kura I’m looking at you!) just had the cutest baby and we were able to photograph her newborn photography session back in January.
Soooo remember Chelsie & Evan’s surprise engagement session from last year? Click here to read the full story, but basically Evan surprised Chelsie by proposing to her during a family photography session we had together in Logansport Indiana at France Park and it was the sweetest thing ever!
From then on, I KNEW their wedding day was going to be one of my favorites. Their general compassion towards others and their love for one other is obvious to everyone that knows them. And I knew their wedding day would be filled with true emotions that ran deep.
My favorite part of the day? Their vows.
Chelsie and Evan decided to read their vow privately, only to each other, and to share standards vows during their ceremony in front of guests. It was the most private of moments that I felt so honored to be a fly on the wall for. Evan had the biggest tears streaming down his face and Chelsie’s smiles were just as big, if not bigger.
Their wedding is by far one of my favorites yet and I can’t wait to see where life takes them. Congratulations Chelsie & Evan!
