Sarah + Matt : 09.14.19 | Pokagon State Park – Angola, Indiana Wedding Photography

Sarah and Matt’s unique outdoor DIY wedding at Pokagon State Park in Angola, Indiana was full of love and laughter and personal touches. I was absolutely over the moon with Sarah’s unique wedding dress from Etsy as well as her daughter’s dress. They were so beautiful!

I really love it when couples incorporate highly personal items into their wedding day. It makes the romance and the sentiment even deeper. The handcrafted ceramic mugs they drank out of at the reception were just one of the many personal items Sarah and Matt included at their wedding. They were also sure to bring a bunch of lawn games for the kids and adults to enjoy, like the giant Jenga game. Who wouldn’t have fun playing that?!

The CCC Shelter was the perfect location for their unique outdoor DIY wedding because we had the perfect view overlooking a small area of woods – and we had some deer greet us! – as well as the beach. The sunset cast golden rays across the reception area as dinner came to a close and the party began. It was perfect.

Congratulations, Sarah + Matt! Wishing you all the best. <3
