A Classic Spring Wedding in Fort Wayne, Indiana

Jakobi + Jeff
A Classic Spring Wedding in Fort Wayne, Indiana


This blog has all the classic wedding day vibes. From blossoming white trees to 80 degree weather, it was a recipe for the perfect spring wedding. Jakobi looked absolutely stunning in her One Fine Day gown by Essense of Australia. She paired her gorgeous white gown with her something blue heels and Chanel perfume. At her side, her girls wore pink dresses which looked so stunning with Rose’s Bouquets florals! Jeff stuck with the classic black tux and bow tie along with his groomsmen. This party radiated class!

Jakobi + Jeffs wedding day was nothing short from perfect. The day started off calm in the cutest AirBnb that had all the natural light and beautiful spaces for a bridal suite dream. As we made our way to the church, it was time for the tears to begin as Jakobi + Jeff shared a first touch and sweet words before the ceremony.

It was so obvious Jeff was excited to see Jakobi, holding back the tears but showing his smile as she made her way down the aisle. You could just tell these two were so happy to finally be side by side on their special day, it was traditional and perfect for them.

Jakobi + Jeff,

Though our time together has been short, it’s felt like I’ve known you two FOREVER. I am so happy I was a part of this journey with you guys and I cannot wait to see what’s next in your future as Mr + Mrs. Thank you so much for having me, you two are seriously so adorable and will forever be in my heart, I hope to see you guys again soon! Congratulations again and best wishes!
