After 8 years of dating, Ryan and Joelle finally tied the knot on September 1, 2012!
We started the day early by taking a little trip in their party bus to shoot some photos around Bloomington. Take notes brides- this was a GREAT idea! While on our little adventure, we stopped by Yogi’s Grill and Bar, the Indiana University Sample Gates, and some beautiful wooded pathways throughout Indiana University’s campus. We had a blast and more than ample time to get some really fun moments captured!
After our field trip, we headed back to Chapman’s Courtyard for the ceremony. I had never heard of Chapman‘s before their wedding…even after living in Bloomington for 5 years! What a fantastic place for a wedding! They have a beautiful courtyard surrounded by cute lodging for the wedding party and guests as well as a bar/restaurant and a great banquet hall.
It is very apparent that these two have so much love! All of their family and friends were so wonderful and the speeches that they gave were beyond touching! I had a great time with these two and their family and friends. I feel very honored to have been a part of their day.
Thank you Ryan and Joelle! Also, thank you to Leah Fithian for being my sidekick and second shooter for the day!
Congratulations Joelle and Ryan! I wish you all of the best!
