Details from eMbers Venue wedding in Rensselaer, Indiana

A little edgy, incredibly sweet, and a whole lot of fun. Tim and Victoria’s big day couldn’t have been any more true to who they are, and I’m so excited to share their 10/10/2020 eMbers Venue wedding in Rensselaer, Indiana on the blog!

 

Wanting their wedding to be a nonstop party, Tim & Victoria decided to ditch a few wedding traditions—including a white dress!

I’ve known Victoria since college (We both went to Saint Joe.), and when she contacted me about shooting her wedding, I was ecstatic because I knew Tim and Victoria’s wedding was going to be a good time! 

Random fact: My first memory of Victoria is from a Halloween party. She dressed up as a “housewife” by wearing an apron and carrying a plate with a sandwich on it. She danced with the sandwich on the plate for most of the night until somebody ate it. Like I said, she’s lots of fun! 

When we met for drinks to discuss their big day, Tim and Victoria told me that they were going to ditch a few wedding traditions so that their wedding day could be true to who they are as a couple and because they didn’t want to feel overwhelmed by the absence of Victoria’s dad and Tim’s mom who are no longer with us. 

Tim and Victoria still did a traditional ceremony, shared a first dance, tossed a garter and bouquet, and cut their cake. But, rather than doing a formal dinner, they made their celebration into an all-night cocktail hour and dance party. In other words, the fun, food, and dancing never stopped!

Another tradition that Victoria decided to forgo was wearing a white dress. Now, if you know this amazing bride, you know you can typically find her in Vans with a flannel or a skater dress or workout attire. 

When they got engaged, Victoria chose and bought a white dress, but she kept having second thoughts about it. Wanting to feel more comfortable and like herself, Victoria went back to Purple Door Bridal Boutique, explained the situation, found a black dress she loved, and sold her white dress!

Victoria, you looked GORGEOUS! You were perfectly you and bridal all at the same time. Way to be true to who you are!

 

Tim & Victoria enthusiastically conquer life together.

Now, I can’t help sharing that although they’re super fun and are the life of the party wherever they go, what stands out about Tim and Victoria most to me is how they always seem to be on the same page. In fact, even their officiant mentioned this during their ceremony.

While Tim and Victoria do complement one another pretty perfectly, this isn’t why they’re able to tackle life together so well. They have a thriving relationship because they prioritize communication, truly make decisions together, and approach every situation united.  

They might be newlyweds, but these two are already a great example of what marriage should look like. 

 

Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Haan!

Tim and Victoria, your wedding day was fun, unique, and unforgettable. I can’t imagine a more perfect way to celebrate your marriage. 

Thank you for trusting me to be your wedding photographer. It was an honor. 

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Haan! I hope you love these previews from your eMbers Venue wedding in Rensselaer, Indiana!
