It's hard to believe, but Becky and Joe's engagement session was over two years ago (see it here!) at Mellon Park - and mid-May of this year, they tied the knot! I loved having the opportunity to photograph Becky & Joe's engagement session because it showed me how easily they interacted together and how much love they have for each other - which is just one reason why I was so excited to photograph their wedding day!
Becky & Joe's fuchsia, purple, and teal wedding day was planned with so many thoughtful details. Becky even created the invitation suite herself (major props!) and tied lockets with photos of loved ones who had passed to her bouquet (what a sweet sentiment!).
Their ceremony took place right in the middle of Indiana Country Club's golf course in a little area secluded by trees. Their heartfelt vows, Full House references, and retelling of their first date made for lots of laughs and happy tears.
At their reception, Becky and Joe had a stinking COOKIE CAKE as their wedding cake in lieu of a traditional cake (which I was pumped about - Nick and I had a cookie cake at our wedding, and they were the first other couple we have known to do the same!). Towards the beginning of the reception, in honor of loved ones who had passed before the wedding, the couple had a "Ten Bell Salute," which is used before wrestling matches to honor a deceased wrestler (Joe is a wrestler himself, which made a Ten Bell Salute the perfect way to honor deceased family members). The day finished with lots of dancing and a mashed potato bar for guests!
I am so thankful that we were able to be part of such a beautiful day for Becky and Joe. Congratulations on your marriage, you two! Here's to many more adventures!
