Kara and Hans had a lovely summer day for their outdoor wedding at The Inn At Aberdeen in Valparaiso, Indiana. This venerable bed and breakfast is a great spot for bridal prep as well as an intimate wedding. We started our day with Kara getting ready with the help of her daughter and friends.
I photographed Kara in the lovely halls of The Inn while Hans awaited his bride outside in front of the gazebo. Soon Kara would be walking down the aisle with a beaming groom to greet her and adoring friends and family.
The gazebo garden area is where outdoor weddings take place and it is tucked away below in a little valley. Kara was able to stand atop of the hill and look out at the scene before she came down the cobblestone pathway. The flower girl lined her path before she descended down the aisle.
The ceremony was quite the family affair, including the performing musicians who then made their way to light the unity candles with their parents.
After family pictures Hans and Kara strolled around the garden with me for romantic photos. Then we headed in for cocktails, cake cutting and dinner.
The reception soon came outside again where the bride and groom had their first dance as Angelo Cicco performed acoustically. Guests chatted as the sun came down and danced inside the gazebo. It was a wonderful summer night.
