Ross & Gabrielle’s Fourth of July weekend wedding was the first of my three in four days. Say whaaaat?! Yep, you read right, three weddings in four days. It was an exhausting four days, but so rewarding! To be able to see that much joy and happiness in such a short amount of time is something that I will always treasure. Ross and Gabrielle’s wedding was such a wonderful way to kick off the weekend! Their ceremony was at the most adorable little church in Tipton, IN that Ross and Gabrielle have attended for years. Gabrielle is an elementary teacher and it was evident that her skill of being prepared for everything paid off when she planned her wedding! Each detail had been thought of and taken care of in the most beautiful, thoughtful way.
Ross and Gabrielle chose to do a first look before their ceremony and it was such a sweet, sweet moment. A quiet, tender moment for just the two of them in a church that would soon be filled with over 200 guests. By the way… her dress. Look at her dress! (Go ahead, scroll down.. I’ll wait! ;)) I’ve never seen a dress design quite like this, and I must say that I’m a HUGE fan! The actual dress is a simple, trumpet gown and it has a light and airy layer with the softest, most beautiful rose patterns.
The reception for their wedding took place at one of my favorite venues, The Bel Aire in Kokomo where they made their entrances down the grand staircase like royalty. The building was filled with candles and the most beautiful floral centerpieces that complimented the room beautifully. I love it when my couples incorporate unique elements into their wedding days, and was so excited when Gabrielle and her father danced to the song “Dance Like Your Daddy” by Megan Trainor and then asked ALL of the daddy/daughter pairs in the crowd to come join them! It was certainly a first dance to remember!
Enjoy some of my favorites from Ross & Gabrielle’s wedding!!
