Welcome to our first official (other than our own 😉 ) Indiana LGBTQ+ Wedding blog!!!! After our own wedding we couldn’t wait to shoot our first LGBTQ+ wedding! And we couldn’t think of ANY BETTER couple to be our first other than Lindsay + Audree! We had all the feels celebrating the day with these two, and remembering our own wedding!
Their July 18th, 2020 wedding was not one to miss. They were married at the one and only The Gathering Barn which was a sight to see all in itself! The Gathering Barn provided to be a beautiful location for both a small + intimate ceremony and reception. Not to mention they had a gorgeous property to explore for photos!
Before the big ceremony… they shared their most anticipated parts of the day. For Lindsay, it was simply to see her beautiful bride. Audree writes that the entire morning was a bunch of nerves before their first look! She shares she was more nervous than she had initially thought she would be for the big day but she knew seeing her bride for the first time would wipe her nerves right away!
As far as favorite parts of the day goes… Lindsay says she was finally able to relax at the reception and really enjoy herself! Audree on the other hand says that there was not one part of the day she “did not cherish.” SERIOUSLY ALL THE FEELS.
The wedding was just as unique + individual as the brides themselves. Most decorations were hand made… Complete with a massive donut wall + arbor that truly took “the cake” for their coolest crafts that evening!
“It was truly one of the best days of my life,” Lindsay shares. Audree explained how she loved that she married the love of her life in front of a group of people who invested in their relationship and their promise to a new life together. Looking forward?! New adventures + creating unforgettable memories are surely on the way for these two… They are ecstatic to begin tackling life beside their best friend. “No matter the situation, good or bad, happy or sad,” Audree shares they will always be there for each other + love one another. Ugh, you guys!! I just cant!
