Mr. & Mrs Drake's Wedding Day 

September 10, 2022

I choose you over and over,

for you are


more and more each day!


What a crazy ride this year has been for these 2. 

I kept telling my husband I just want this day to be flawless for them.

A day they can actually enjoy every second and I truly think they did!

This picture says it all.... YES we made it!!


September 10th turned out to be an absolutely amazing day!

The sun was out with a slight breeze, not to hot but not cold either.

No rain in sight!!

That means wedding outside at the Aberdeen gazebo.

Everything these 2 wanted was starting to fall in place.


I showed up at the Vanis salon in Valparaiso with the bride already in a chair getting her makeup started. 

A few snacks were sitting out on a decorative table,

while the ladies worked on the rest of the girls and moms.

Then to the hotel to grab a few things and head to the venue.


Harry would meet the guys at the venue after their golf game.

I still think you should have let Harry come take pictures while you played golf

then maybe the bees would have stayed away! lol

With a few glitches with the bees and no allergic reaction

the guys meet up with harry for a few laughs, pictures and then it would be ceremony time!

Enjoy a small preview through our camera's eyes.


Gosh I love this girl!!


A few minutes to read a note from each other. 


Dance Party jams while the guys go outside to do picture!

I mean... really what can you do when you are locked in a 12x 12 room.


Are you ready because here comes your bride.


Turn down the lights and kick everyone out,

right now it is just me and you.

Time to reflect on a day that has been a blur, 

enjoy our first moment as husband and wife all by ourselves.


Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Drake

I hope these pictures bring back every minute so you can reflect one more time!
