RYAN + RAE: ADVENTUROUS OUTDOOR WEDDING IN SOUTHERN INDIANA
Ryan + Rae’s adventurous outdoor wedding in Southern Indiana is one of my favorites! Abram Farm was the perfect place for these two to celebrate with their friends + family. This Southern Indiana wedding venue has rural property, a big pond, and an outdoor wedding site that is ideal for those looking to say “I do” in nature. Need more venue ideas? Check out my venue map here! When I think back on this day, I remember a lot of genuine emotion + realness. Rae opted to do a first look with her father right before doing one with Ryan. Both moments were very emotional and special. It was an honor to document such intimate memories. These two totally trusted me and I am forever grateful for that. I am able to do my best work when my couples are comfortable with me and can be fully present on their day.
When these two were planning their day with me, they made it a priority to adventure off the property at a nearby waterfall; a spot that is special to their relationship. Ryan wore Converse, Rae wore Tevas, and we trekked around the waterfall. It started to rain just as we were finishing up. Phew! After some reception festivities, we went back outside for some bonus portraits in the rowboat that the venue provided. My husband Jim had rigged the floral arrangement (from the talented Pomp & Bloom) from the ceremony onto the boat with random fishing line he found nearby. Boy did that pan out well. It was GORGEOUS! One of their first adventures as newlyweds was paddling on a rowboat. How cool! We snapped some beautiful images before going back inside for more dancing and ending the night with some sparklers + star-gazing. A heck of a day!
