Kevin and Nicole's Fall outdoor wedding and reception at Taltree Arboretum in Valparaiso, Indiana had a strong emphasis on family and friends as most weddings do. Their nuptials at the hidden pavilion had very much the feel of a family picnic. So many laughs, good music and a casual elegance throughout the entire event. Oh, and the scenery was gorgeous!!
Friends and family brought out their families and the ceremony was cozy and full of laughter and a few happy tears. A member of the wedding party was the officiant and the bride and groom shared their first kiss to much applause.
I love open air wedding reception such as this. I was able to hover around the proceedings and take many fun, candid and "in the moment" wedding photos. As children played, adults mingled, ate strawberry wedding cake and drank some bubbly Chandon champagne.
