Kade + Aubree | These two stole our hearts on that one sunny Saturday...

Updated: Feb 17, 2021

Sacred Heart Catholic Church | Schnellville, Indiana | The 27th day of July, 2019

Aubree + Kade stole our hearts from the very beginning when we met them for their dreamy engagement session this past March. As we ventured through a few sunkissed fields of Celestine, capturing their sweet hugs and kisses, we knew they were going to be an extraordinary couple to work with on their wedding day! Fast forward to July, and we could not have been more elated to celebrate in their union of marriage! Needless to say, a few elements stick out to us when we think about this couple’s memorable day: pooches, joyous tears, and a LIVE band. Keep on reading to piece together the clues!

While the girls were finishing their final touches, Bryson and I took advantage of capturing the beautiful details Aubree + Kade had pieced together. Can we just take a minute and appreciate the lavender palette these two chose? How gorgeous!! Everything from the lavender invitations to the lilac bridesmaid dresses to the elegant purple flowers for flatlays {that Jenna may or may not have picked from outside the church ;) } created the perfect blend of delicacy. We snapped our last few images of the rings, jewelry, letters, and so much more, and then shifted our focus to the dazzling bride. 

Sometimes, there just aren’t words to dictate how beautiful the bride is. This was the case for Aubree. We just all took a second to admire her beauty! Her Christina Wu gown was an absolute dream with the ivory, lace fit and flare, two tiered train and keyhole  back. Her chosen hairstyle of an updo with wispy curls to frame her face, pearl bracelets, and diamond, dangly earrings all brought her bridal glamor together. With her mom, sister, and closest gal pals by her side, the final buttons were buttoned, and this bride was ready for her groom. 

“Sharp Dressed Man” by ZZTop should have been Kade’s theme song for the day. His black tux, silver tie, perfectly incorporated cufflinks all tied in with a boutonniere of lavender and baby’s breath made for one sharp dressed groom. Kade’s nerves were completely masked by a purely excited smile and genuine demeanor.  This groom was ready for his bride. 

As Kade + Aubree’s friends, family, and loved ones gathered in Sacred Heart Church, we were all patiently awaiting “the reaction.” The reaction of Kade as he would see his stunning bride for the very first time. Cue the organ and the rising of the congregation! It did not take long for Kade’s pure smile to turn into joyous tears as he watched his soon to be wife gracefully come down the aisle to him. As if that was not sweet and tender enough, Kade’s brother also shared in the heartwarming tears. You better believe there was not a dry eye in that church at all! ;) Hand in hand, Kade + Aubree stood before their congregation, made their vows, and sealed their unity with a kiss.  We now introduce to you, Mr. + Mrs. Kade Olinger!! Bring on the bubbles!!

Family pictures would not have been complete without the pooches! Millie, Hank, and Melvin were also dressed to the nines with their floral collar, bow ties, and lots of licks! The bridal party kept the good times rolling as well, especially since there were 20 of them in all! Wowza! We always love the giggles that come from a large bridal party. Their enthusiasm continued to add to the beautiful essence of this special day for Kade + Aubree.

After we got our fill of fried chicken and some yummy mashed potatoes, we ventured to the same sunkissed field from this couple’s engagement session! With so many nostalgic moments from this location, Aubree + Kade were complete naturals for their sunset portraits. Though the sun was getting low, this couple was still embracing each second of their wedding day excitement. As they embraced each other in sweet hugs and kisses, it was as if time had stopped for just a split second. The reality and emotion of becoming husband and wife were all so real and evident in their gazes toward each other. We snapped our last few shots of the couple twirling and dancing and then headed back to the Celestine Community Club for a rocking good time!

Bryson and I have not had the opportunity to experience a live band at a reception before. The Hiding, HANDS DOWN, gave one of the most interactive and entertaining reception experiences that we had ever seen! They did not skip a beat to join the crowd in dancing and  singing at the top of their lungs 90s classics. Even we found ourselves getting groovy with the crowd! Needless to say, Kade + Aubree’s wedding was the perfect combination of glee, celebration, and a doggone good time. Once again, congratulations to the happy couple!!
