brook + loren // angola, lake james indiana wedding photographer [pokagon state park + potawatomi inn ]

I’m so excited to share Brook and Loren’s wedding day! Brook and Loren were married on the shores of Lake James at Pokagon State Park. Potawatomi Inn was the perfect setting for their nuptials! Cory and I started off their day making the drive from Lake Wawasee (any wedding day that allows us to get ready from our lake is a wedding day we want to be a part of lol). Cory and I split ways — he went boating with the guys and I hung out with the girls for hair and makeup. With a little, little rain, they scored their good luck and then had some of the prettiest weather ever!

Our timeline was a little tight in the evening and we ended up stealing Brook and Loren for more photos while everyone finished eating. Some of my favorite photos happen when its just us and the couple. I think its the moment when the world stands still and its just you and your new spouse enjoying your new title. Its the moment when the jokes flow, the smiles are genuine, and the love is overflowing at the brim. And do you see the moon in those sunset photos? Goodness shooting in September is always my fav!! Check out a few of my favorites from their beautiful Friday lake wedding!
