100% chance of rain for the entire day. That is what the weather channel was calling for on Ben & Mollie’s wedding day. The rain was coming down heavy as we made our way to Anderson, IN. The girls were getting ready in Mollie’s family home, the guys were at the country club of Ben’s father’s neighborhood. As we were photographing the bridal party getting ready we noticed something magical start to happen. The heavy rain was passing over and only a small sprinkle of rain came down occasionally from that point forward. As they arrived at the church the rain stopped altogether. The ceremony started out with laughter and hums of ‘awwwww’ as the ring bearers and flower girl made their way to the front of the church. Then the doors in the back of the church. Mollie wowed as she walked down the aisle with her father to her husband-to-be. The ceremony had beautiful readings, special moments, and a few tears as Ben & Mollie joined together in marriage. After it was announced they were husband and wife they high fived and then proceeded to their first kiss. It was a moment of pure joy.
A short trolley ride to Noblesville, IN had the bridal party arriving at the beautiful Mustard Seed Gardens for the reception. The garden smelled like spring as the blooms were just starting to blossom. We brought the ladies near the lush green trees to capture them. Mollie picked out the most incredible dress for her ladies, it’s the same dress that can be tied and shaped several different ways. It was absolutely stunning on all of them. The wedding dress Mollie wore looked stunning on her, she even had pockets in the dress! The bridal party joined in a few portraits before heading off to cocktail hour. We walked around the garden with Mollie & Ben, capturing them along the way. On several occasions they had us laughing until our jaws ached. The day was truly about love, laughter, and happily ever after.
The inside of the barn was perfection. Tall ceiling, epic details, beautiful draping. The dinner that was served was delicious and to top it off they had a donut bar filled with all sorts of tasty treats. Mollie & Ben really know how to put together an amazing reception! We ended our time at the reception by sneaking them down the road a little ways for a few final portraits. It was a nice way end our time with them. Big congrats again to Mollie & Ben on their marriage! We were honored to travel down to Indiana to capture their amazing day. Enjoy and take a moment to also look back at their hot (literally hot, summer day) engagement session.
