As I’m working through trying to get my blog nice and full again, I realized this fall wedding at Waterford Crossing, Goshen IN was never blogged!

My husband became friends with Amber while he was at Coast Guard A-school in California, and when she got engaged, he made sure she knew I’d love to be there to photograph her day πŸ™‚ It was a very chilly November day, so the ceremony got moved indoors at the retirement community where Amber’s mom works, but everyone was such troopers to head outside for portraits! The sun was shining perfectly, and the willow tree by the lake made such a perfect backdrop for Amber and David’s wedding!

One reason my husband got along with Amber is their love for comics – that “POW!” ring is Amber’s ring that David proposed with!!

They pulled a little prank on Amber and, when the doors opened for her to walk down the aisle, the Imperial March started to play!
