Hey friends! Welcome to the B & B blog. We are Bret and Brandie, a soon-to-be husband and wife photo team based in the Midwest. Here you will find our latest work, favorite love stories, and recent adventures. Grab some coffee, snuggle up, and enjoy!
Ariel and Justin’s wedding was so glamorous and rustic and we loved absolutely every second of it! The Corner House B&B is the perfect rustic venue in the hills of Southern Indiana. We could not have asked for more perfect weather for the most radiant couple. The sweet couple really let their wedding vision come to life in the quaint little venue in Rockport, Indiana. The girls got ready in the most ideal bridal suite at the B&B – the picture-perfect spot for sweet, whimsical shots.
We set their first look up under a tree in front of the house. Justin’s face was absolutely priceless. These two snuggled, hugged, kissed, giggled, and snuggled some more. We were giddy with joy watching them cozy up next to each other. The shots we captured were so dreamy! We expected nothing less as both of them looked absolutely breathtaking. Ariel had the most ravishing dress. It fit her perfectly in every way and her bouquet was something that dreams are made of. Carol Lauer of Lauer’s Flowers never lets us down! We then brought in the big bridal party. We have yet to meet a bridal party that doesn’t have us leaving in stitches. This group was so much fun!
The ceremony was held up on the hill a few hours before sunset so you can only imagine the view! They exchanged vows under the gazebo surrounded by 200 of their closest friends and family. It’s very apparent that Ariel and Justin are best friends – they giggled through the entire ceremony. Ariel’s twin brother, Adam, led us through half of the ceremony. We love all of the personal touches that were shown throughout the day. How did we get so lucky to have such creative brides and grooms?
Our FAVORITE personal touch to their day was the donut wall. Donuts were served to all of the guests instead of cake, and who doesn’t love a good donut?!?! I know Bret and I do!! Everything was stunning from the gorgeous floral arrangements to the exquisite table settings. Every detail was thought out and executed beautifully. The first dance was almost fairytale-like – absolutely beautiful!
You all know what’s next…SUNSET SHOTS! We can’t help it! The shots always turn out so beautifully. We loved watching Ariel and Justin alone for a bit reflecting on their day. It is little moments like this that have us grinning from ear-to-ear. Once we headed back to the dance floor, the fun really began. Their family and friends really know how to have a good time. They were sent off in style with nearly 100 sparklers leading them out once the evening was over. These were such cool shots to capture!
Their wedding day was filled with love and laughter. Ariel and Justin, you guys are so down-to-earth and fun-loving. It was so evident how special you really are just by watching your family and friends’ love for you. Your love was so incredibly apparent and we loved the fact that not only are you a couple, but you are also best friends. We were honored to be a part of you special day and cannot wait to see what your future holds!
