Indiana Front Yard Wedding | Avery & Kate

Jun 30, 2016

An Indiana front yard wedding. Classic and simple elegance. That’s how Kate described their wedding, and we must agree.

The Couple

Avery and Kate met their freshman year of college through the Honors Guild at Taylor University. Their group of freshmen had a scholarship to travel to Ireland during January of their first year, and that is when Avery and Kate first started to get to know one another. They both look back on this trip as the spark of their interest in each other, but they barely talked to each other during the trip! When they returned from Ireland, Kate told a close friend that it would make her semester if Avery asked her on a pick-a-date (a group dating tradition at Taylor)….she said it would never happen. The next day, Avery asked her on a pick-a-date! They had a great time and gradually eased into dating after that.

The Wedding

Kate wore her grandmother’s wedding dress that was also worn by two of her aunts, and in a way, this dress was the center of aesthetics for the wedding. They chose to get married at Fairmount Friends Church, an old church in a nearby town, and hosted the front yard reception in the home that Kate’s family built themselves.

Tradition. Heritage. Family.

Here’s a few of our favorites from the day!

Every detail of this beautiful home and yard contains memories of this family’s energy and time, beginning with clearing the land for the home to be built! While photographing Avery and Kate, I just kept thinking about the new memories they were creating AT THIS VERY MOMENT with this beautiful wedding!

The cake topper has appeared in two generations of weddings on Avery’s mom’s side of the family. Avery and Kate were happy to continue the tradition to the third generation!
