The Nineteenth day of October, 2019 | Corner House Bed + Breakfast | Rockport, IN
“The day we have prayed for and dreamed about is finally here. We’re excited for all of our planning to come to fruition. I know he’s excited because he has texted me every day this week saying, ‘I can’t wait to marry you!’ which makes it even better. We’ve been together for so long, so I’m excited for us to come home together, laugh, and enjoy each couple’s company in a way that we’ve never been able to do.”
When you get married at the Corner House, you feel right at home with its cozy Bed and Breakfast, stunning ceremony location that overlooks gorgeous views, and glamorous barns ready to harbor celebration and a guaranteed good time! With this being said, we were over the moon when Madison and Cameron chose us to capture their over 10 year relationship altering to a lifelong marriage through film and photo at this warm, homey venue!!
You better believe Madison had all of her accent “ducks in a row” when planning for this day! Her bridal beauty blend included bracelets, a hair piece, and beautiful earrings full of bling, velvet ring box, ivory chunky heels, lace garters, floral stationary, and last but not least...bridal Nikes! Madison was glowing as she slipped off her “I Do” fluffy slippers, awaiting the moment to step into her bridal gown. Her ‘Tyler’ design wedding dress by Matthew Christopher was divine! This dress looked as if it was only made for Madison with its trumpet silhouette, draped lace over a swirl sequin underlay, and chapel train with buttons! With a clink of their personalized glasses, the bridesmaids were ready to stand by their bride’s side!!
What makes a first look with your mama, dad, or groom even sweeter?! Gifts! The first look moments with Madison’s mom and dad included a little something special: a painted mug and bracelet for mama and a tie with an embroidered note for her dad that read, “I wouldn’t be the woman I am today without you. Thank you for everything. I love you. Madison, 10-19-19.”...I’m not crying; you’re crying!!!! If you can’t decide between waiting to walk down the aisle to see each other or doing a first look before the ceremony as bride and groom, maybe try a first touch! We loved getting this well thought out event on camera! As we placed Madison + Cameron on either side of the barn doors, we couldn’t help but smile and giggle at their reactions of holding hands and speaking with each other for a hot second! After they exchanged their gifts to each other, it was time to commence their marriage!
The sun was shining oh so brightly for the momentous ceremony! The Pastor made a wonderful mention of one of the most important words on a wedding day: love. Rather than only reading 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, he replaced the beginning of each phrase with Madison and Cameron’s names, which brought such an intentional challenge for the ceremony message:
“Madison and Cameron are patient and kind.
They are not envious or boastful.
They are not arrogant or rude.
They do not insist on their own way and are not irritable or resentful.
They do not rejoice at wrongdoing but rejoice in the truth.
They bear all things, believe all things, hope all things, and endure all things.”
With this kind of love in mind, Madison and Cameron were ready to enter into a lifelong companionship of loving each other more and more every day. Their dedication and passion to love each other fiercely between was completely apparent during the vow reading.
“I love so many things about you, but your strength, your will to stand up for me like you're not a little, tiny thing, and your true compassion to make every day of our lives better for each other rather than ourselves is really what keeps our love going. I know my love for you has always been and my love for you will always be and now I get to call you my wife.” -Cameron
“The phrase, in sickness and in health, means much more to us than most couples our age. You have been there in the best and worst of times, and our love has only grown stronger. I promise to choose you again and again for the rest of our life no matter the circumstance.”
The pastor then proclaimed, “You may kiss your bride!”. As the bride and groom made their way down the aisle, hand in hand, it was as if they had a new smile and giggle as they entered into a new union.
With a smidgen of sun left, we perused the endless beautiful backdrops of the Corner House, sneaking in all of the images of the bride and groom as the newly Mr. and Mrs. White! Cake was then served (which is Bryson’s favorite part of a wedding day if we’re honest), and the newlyweds enjoyed a whole lot of celebration dancing under the twinkling lights with their loved ones. This made for a beautiful ending to a beautiful day.
