I'll be honest... I was a little nervous the 24 hours leading up to this wedding. I typically don't listen to weather apps until the morning of and even then if it's calling for rain I am usually willing a break in the rain into the universe. However this wedding was 2 hours and 40 minutes away and they were calling for rain allll day. I spent all afternoon the day before strolling the streets of Indiana on Google map street view trying to find pretty covered areas! Thankfully though, the weather did shift for us, and we only had a few surprise pop ups we had to deal with!
The reception was held at The Saint Florian, an old school building that has been remodeled into a really neat venue. On the second floor they have a beautiful bridal suite where the ladies were getting ready while sipping mimosas in their matching navy robes. Brooklyn work a beautiful sleeveless, A-line gown with a gorgeous train and keyhole back. Her hair was pinned half up with a romantic braid along the side, completed with her mother's cathedral length veil and a greenery comb when the veil was not in. Her heels were stunning and covered in gems, and being a realist she had some gem covered sneakers to pop on after the ceremony [smart girl].
This was a fun group... ornery... but fun!
They may or may not have been trying to catch a tiny snake lol

Lanterns and white pumpkins greeted guests as they arrived to the reception. On the left was one of the coolest favors I've seen in a while! Homemade rib rub... yes please, that sounds amazing! The reception hall was filled with navy round tables topped with gold chargers and white plates, and the room was full of a romantic glow from hundreds of candles. The head table FULL of candlesticks was possibly one of my favorite I have seen <3 Individual bags of different types of tortilla chips and bowls of salsa were available for munching followed by a DELICIOUS taco/burrito bar for dinner!
