Berne, IN Wedding – Brandon and Ashton

It is always a joy to share in the lives of two special people.  Brandon and Ashton were married almost 2 weeks ago and are in the midst of celebrating their first married Christmas.

Their wedding was definitely a labor of love from a lot of people.  Ashton has family here locally, but also in South Dakota and Canada.  Her aunts were like Christmas elves scurrying to get everything decorated to perfection.  I have had the privilege of photographing a few family weddings and know that their floral arrangements are just beautiful.  It was a joy photograph their masterpieces again.

Ashton looked radiant!  She is a girly girl and I loved the bling on her dress and her dreamy long veil.  I wish you could feel her veil through photos.  It was the softest fabric I have ever felt.  She was stunning. Brandon dressed up pretty sharp too. 😉

I am so happy for the new family that Brandon and Ashton have created together.  They are truly special people.

Here are a few highlights of their beautiful wedding day. If you are a family member or friend who would like to see all of their wedding photos with the option to order please inbox me directly using the contact form on the website.

Have a very Merry Christmas,


Meet the Newlyweds: Brandon and Ashton
Location: First Missionary Church – Berne, IN

How they met:  Brandon and Ashton have always known each other.  They grew up in the same church. It wasn’t until Ashton’s senior year of college when their friends Matt and Erin were dating that they all starting hanging out together. A month later, they started dating.

Engagement:  Two days before they left on a family vacation with Ashton’s family, Brandon was acting really weird. They were hanging out at her aunts house on a Tuesday night. He wouldn’t talk to Ashton all evening so she knew something was up! Brandon asked Ashton to go on a walk and she thought for sure he would pop the question then. Later that night, they went to the backyard to star gaze. Stargazing was something they really enjoyed doing together. Before she knew it, he was on one knee popping the big question. Of course she said yes!

Reception Details: First dance song: Mean To Me by Brett Eldredge, DJ: Wicked Sound – Kent Wicker, Cake: Jen Reusser,

Favorite Wedding Memory: The first look! Brandon and Ashton decided to see each other before the wedding to calm their nerves. When they turned around and saw each other their nerves went away and they were more than excited to begin their lives together. Ashton said, “he never looked more handsome!”
