This wasn’t one of those “love at first sight” kinda stories. In fact, it took over 10 years (and a college alumni event) to spark this romance, but no one’s ever going to question if this love was meant to be from the very beginning!

The strongest relationships have friendship at the root and, with Betsy + Luke, these roots run DEEP! There’s just something about when they’re together. It’s like everything else goes away and they’re caught up in their admiration and joy they have just in who each other is! Watching them on their wedding day was like reading your favorite romance novel that you can’t put down! Everyone was caught up in the love these two share and it was so SO beautiful to be a part of!

We spent the day on her parents property, on Lake Wawasee, that had been in the family for 5 generations! Talk about a meaningful location to give your daughter away! Think “Father of the Bride” but in real life and on a lake!! Everything about it was thoughtful and intentional and captured, so well, who Betsy + Luke are as a couple!

So to the beautiful newlywed husband and wife, THANK YOU both for inviting me in to this celebration! It was such an honor to be able to capture these special moments for you! Someday I hope you look over these photos with your grandchildren and can still remember how you felt during your first dance and when you saw Betsy walking toward you, Luke. May you always look at each other with that same star-gazed look you had all day and may your affection only grow deeper and deeper with each passing moment you’re together! You both are such a joy and I’m SO thankful to know you!

Hope you enjoy some of my favorites from Betsy + Luke’s Lake Wawasee Wedding!

A huge thanks to the amazing vendors who made this possible!
