Midwest Engagement Photographer: Jess & Chase (and their dog Juno!)







Q/A’s with Bride to be, Jess, about their midwest engagement session:

To make the save the date signs:Take a plain piece of wood of any size or shape. Choose your base color that you want to show through and paint the entire piece. I used an acrylic paint. Let dry completely. Take Elmer’s All Purpose Glue and cover the paint entirely. I used my finger to spread it out (don’t worry about it being perfectly spread out or even, it adds character). Let sit for about 10-15 seconds (until tacky) and then paint your top coat on top. Let air dry or use hair dryer and you will start to see the cracks come through! The letters are done with a stencil and the same base coat paint. Let dry and there are your signs!!

How’d you two meet? I had heard Chase was a new transfer student for the baseball team and we had seen each other around campus a few times. Many of our friends were mutual and they thought it would be a good idea to set us up on a date. The story goes on from there.

Favorite part of the engagement session? Walking around all the little shops in Nashville and looking at the unique stores and buildings that are tucked away. We loved being able to include Juno in our pictures as she is part of our family.

Wedding plans? The ceremony is at Asbury United Methodist Church on August 18, 2012 with the reception following at Factory 12 event loft. Colors for the wedding are purple and grey and the theme is going to be based around a rustic, cozy, friend and family atmosphere.

Chas & Anna’s Winter Breakfast Wedding at Grace Luteran and Columbus Indiana Commons

Our wedding was in January, because we wanted to get married after Chas finished school at Purdue. Since he graduated in December we thought January would be a good time to get married. We had our wedding ceremony at Grace Lutheran church since that is where I grew up and my father is the pastor there. The reception was held at the Commons Mall in downtown Columbus. We loved the building and thought it was a beautiful venue for a large party. We were expecting around 350 people and needed a space that could accommodate a large number of guests. We also loved all the windows allowing for lots of natural light, which we thought would look beautiful for a brunch. Chas and I chose to have a morning ceremony, followed by a brunch to allow easier travel for guests. Both of us have always enjoyed brunch and wanted to do something fun and different for our guests. We had a purple/navy theme that incorporated some beautiful flowers and peacock colors on the centerpieces.









Favorite Moment?Anna: It was walking into the Commons for our entrance as husband and wife and seeing all the people who had come to celebrate with us. Chas: Being able to thank all of our friends and family for joining us in our celebration.





Funniest moment? Anna: Listening to the best man’s speech. Nick has been such a great friend and he always makes everyone laugh. Chas: It was fun to take pictures with my previous roommates in the photo booth during the reception.

We chose the song “Moon River.” Anna fell in love with that song when watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s and she always knew that she wanted that played for her wedding. It is a beautiful song!
