Bret & Hanna | A Rustic Elkhart Lake Outdoor Wedding


filed in

These two. I can’t put into words how wonderful Bret & Hanna were to work with. It was truly an honor to capture this beautiful day for them! They were waiting years for this day and when it finally arrived, they were greeted with the most perfect day with abundant sunshine and blue skies.
When looking at their ceremony photos, it may look like they simply had it in a beautiful open field. Which they did, but it’s so much more than that. This is the land that these two will soon build their very first home and where they will start their family. So many memories will be made on this plot of land, but how beautiful is it that their wedding day is the first one?!
Hanna came down the aisle on the back of her beautiful horse Juliette. Like, what? How freakin’ perfect! In between shots, I glanced over at Hanna’s mom and saw tears as her daughter rode down the aisle and I would be lying if I said I didn’t wipe away a tear myself. Their baby girl was marrying her soulmate on the most beautiful August day. You simply can’t ask for anything more.
This is one wedding for the books and I’m so excited and honored to share these images with you! I felt blessed to be such an important part of their magical day!
