Sam and Eric's Lamb Lake Wedding
Although yesterday’s weather tried to test us, nothing could stop Sam and Eric’s outdoor wedding from happening yesterday on the Lamb Lake dam in Trafalgar, Indiana. Not even torrential downpours or a tornado warning could ruin Sam and Eric’s perfect day. It may have been one of the most difficult situations I’ve worked in as a wedding photographer, but it was also one of my favorite days. Throughout everything, Sam and Eric’s love for each other shined through.
With the lake in front of them, and a stunning waterfall behind them, the lamb lake dam had the most beautiful backgrounds for Sam and Eric’s emotional wedding ceremony. Sam and Eric did a first look, so we took most of the portraits before the wedding at Sam’s parent's’ house where the reception was being held, but we were also able to take a few bride and groom portraits in the rain after the ceremony with the waterfall flowing in the background. I’m obsessed with these photos, because they remind me so much of the rain scene in The Notebook!
Then back at Sam’s parents’ house on the lake, the true party started. Sam and Eric met working in the downtown Indianapolis Methodist Emergency Room, and so many of their guests were their coworkers. At one point, while everyone was dancing and having fun at the reception, someone turned to me and said “the crazy thing is, every single one of these people could save your life.” So essentially, it was like I was photographing a Grey’s Anatomy wedding.
Sam and Eric, despite everything, your wedding day was absolutely perfect. It was such an honor to be your wedding photographer. I hope you enjoy these sneak peaks while I finish editing your full wedding gallery!
