tori + drew // fort wayne indiana elopement photographer

Tori and Drew. All the heart eyes! They have a unique ring story that fills my heart to the brim. When they were younger (I believe elementary years) Tori's parents gave her a gorgeous sapphire ring. At a pool party, Tori's ring got caught while playing a game with Drew and the ring broke. Fast forward years later and they took the sapphire stone to the jeweler and had it placed in a wedding ring. Best story ever? I thought so too. 

Tori contacted me a month before their "I do" date and said Drew was going to be home from the military for Thanksgiving and they were planning to get married while he was home. She asked if I was in and obviously I was SO IN. We spent a few hours on a Friday in downtown Fort Wayne capturing their love together before they met 40 of their closest family and friends at the Hoppy Gnome to get married. What a day!

The Metzger's know how to throw a wedding. With how much I've photographed their family in the last 2 years you'd think we were related. That has got to be my favorite part of photography. Thank you all so much for inviting me in to photograph all of your big milestones in life. It means the world!
