Jennica & Travis’s Fall Wedding at The Lodge at River Valley Farm

As rain gently pushed away from The Lodge at River Valley Farm in Yorktown, Indiana before their wedding ceremony, Travis read his letter from his bride-to-be, while his smile lit up the porch of the cabin. He told us that the distance he had from Jennica in the past few hours was so much more difficult than any of the times they spent long distance in their relationship. He said, “On the day when you want that person to be here close to you, I have to be away from her and wait to see her.”

As tears welled in his eyes, a smile spread across his face as Jennica glided down the aisle with her father by her side.

Their ceremony was one of the most emotional and heartfelt ceremonies I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing. Their friends who stood at their side laughed and cried throughout the entire ceremony, as Jennica & Travis promised to uphold their vows to be one another’s favorite person for life and take lots of adventures together.

And though their dogs are near and dear to their hearts, they knew they wouldn’t be able to participate in the ceremony… so Jennica & Travis had them attend in spirit, with a doggie treat bags for guests to take home to their little pups.

After the ceremony, the wedding party gave their heartfelt toasts, and the dance floor opened. Jennica & Travis shared a beautiful and emotional first dance… one that left no one in the room doubting how much these two truly love and care for one another. Their wedding party brought the party to life, as they danced into the night at The Lodge at River Valley Farm.

Jennica & Travis – what an incredible honor that you chose me to tell the story of your wedding day. I feel blessed that our paths crossed last fall when you booked me for couples portraits. This couple is something special, and I can’t wait to see where life takes the two of you! Hope you enjoy your sneak peeks.
