Fall Wedding at Waterford Crossing, Goshen IN | Amber and David

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. When she got engaged, he made sure she knew I’d love to be there to photograph her day! It was a very chilly November day, so the ceremony got moved indoors at the retirement community where Amber’s mom works. 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!!

Amber’s dad had to goof around while she was pinning him 🙂

Amber and David’s mothers were so cute and excited!

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!

This is probably one of the sweetest moments I’ve captured at a wedding. David’s mom admiring her new daughter-in-laws ring, and Amber’s mom hugging David!
