Mr. & Mrs. Hutsell: A Fowler House Mansion Wedding in Lafayette, IndianaOctober 8, 2021
Episode 028: Why It’s Important to Have High Standards but Low Expectations as a Creative Entrepreneur According to Ben HartleyOctober 13, 2021
They started as coworkers and then spent 4.5 years as friends before Caleb knocked on Jenn’s door and asked if he could take her to dinner. Then, on Friday, October 1, 2021, Jenn and Caleb became husband and wife with a gorgeous, worship-filled wedding at The Sixpence in Whitestown, Indiana—which I’m now thrilled to share on the blog!
On Jenn & Caleb’s wedding day, Christ was the focus, just like He is in Jenn & Caleb’s relationship.
Now, I have to say that Caleb and Jenn were a dream VRP bride and groom to work with. Between their enneagram two personalities, the fact that Jenn literally plans events for a living, the fact that Bonnie (the mother of the bride) is a wedding coordinator, and Jenn and Caleb’s truly wonderful venue and vendor choices, being Jenn and Caleb’s wedding photographer was an incredible experience.
Their wedding day was perfect; however—and I think their guests and loved ones would agree—what stood out most about Jenn and Caleb’s wedding day was how they made God the central focus of the day and used their celebration to thank Him for the work he’s done in their lives and for bringing them together.
For years, Jenn and Caleb prayed for their future spouses, and while they watched their closest friends get married and start families, they’ll both admit that they were starting to give up hope that they’d ever find the right person.
During those years, they had no idea that they were praying for one of their best friends, and on their wedding day, it was so cool to hear in Caleb and Jenn’s vows, their officiant’s message, and speech after speech how it’s now clear that during those years of waiting, God was at work in both of their lives and was slowly but surely bringing Jenn and Caleb together in His perfect timing.
I cannot wait for you to see photos from this gorgeous wedding day below or to tell you more about some of the great vendors Caleb and Jenn chose. But, more importantly than all of the pretty details, Jenn and Caleb entered their marriage with Christ at the center, a biblical understanding of what marriage means, and a genuine thankfulness for one another. And, if you ask me, that’s far more beautiful and important than any aspect of a wedding.
Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Beaverson!
Jenn and Caleb, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for trusting me to be your wedding photographer! I have absolutely loved getting to know the two of you over the course of your engagement. (Jenn, I’ve also really loved our detailed emails back and forth. You were literally a dream bride!)
I hope you love these previews from your wedding at The Sixpence in Whitestown, Indiana, but I hope you’re loving married life even more. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Beaverson! (Or, should I say “Mr. and Mrs. Beav”?!)
The Sixpence’s bridal suite is truly one of the most perfect bridal suites I’ve ever seen! Between the natural light and clean design, as a wedding photographer, I couldn’t I can’t imagine a better space! Jenn has the most genuine laugh! I just adore this VRP bride and wish I could take her organization and positivity with me everywhere. So they could truly take one another’s vows in, Jenn and Caleb read their vows to each other both during their first look and at the altar. This was such a great idea and now definitely something I would recommend to any couple planning to write their own vows! When Jenn & Caleb contacted me and said that their wedding would be at The Sixpence, I was ecstatic! This gorgeous venue opened in summer 2021 and was literally designed by a wedding photographer. As a result, every part of this venue is picture perfect and laid out so well. If you’re looking for an elegant barn venue in the Lafayette, Indiana or Indianapolis area, be sure to check out The Sixpence! From the gorgeous bouquets to this breathtaking arbor, Wedding Florals by Patty’s work was magic! There aren’t any photos of Josh & Lydia of Morning Light Film Co. on the blog, but I can’t help leaving a note simply saying that this videographer team was incredible! Not only were they great to work with, but they were very detail oriented and weren’t afraid to speak up to make sure they were serving Jenn and Caleb well. If you’re a couple looking for a wedding videographer, I highly recommend Morning Light Film Co.!Between their hearts for Christ and how well they love everyone around them, I could not adore this VRP bride and groom any more. During sunset photos, I asked the bridal party if they wanted to grab glasses of champagne for a toast photo with the couple. They all quickly agreed that cans of LaCroix would be more fitting, because as they said, “Caleb is passionate about LaCroix!” Want to see more of Jenn and Caleb?
