An Indiana Lake Wedding on Lake Wawasee
Cary’s family has the sweetest lake cottage on the shores of Lake Wawasee in Northern Indiana. It’s been in Cary’s family since 1942 and has become such a part of who they are. They love to spend so much time there in the summers, and when Colin knew it was time to propose, this special place was where he knew he should pop the question. So, one evening, Colin & Cary went on a boat ride on the lake, and Colin asked Cary to marry him. After they returned from their trip, they were surprised by both of their families at the cottage ready to celebrate.
I first met Colin & Cary (and their sweet dog, Gus) for their engagement session along the canal in Indianapolis, near where they live. However, Lake Wawasee and the cottage is so special to them in so many ways, they just knew that’s where they should be married.
Tara Steele of Tara Nicole Weddings did a fabulous job of bringing their wedding vision to life. Their ceremony on the shores of Lake Wawasee next to the Oakwood Resort was beautiful, highlighted by an exit by the bride and groom on a gorgeous wooden boat. Following their wedding ceremony, their reception in the Hilltop Banquet Hall was so gorgeous with beautiful centerpieces of flowers by Isibeal Studios.
We were so honored to photograph Colin & Cary’s beautiful wedding at the Oakwood Resort on the shores of Lake Wawasee in Syracuse, Indiana. Here are a few samples from their gorgeous wedding day.
Thank you so much to this wonderful team of wedding vendors who made Colin and Cary’s wedding day wonderful!
