Leah and Chandler :: Indiana Micro Wedding

I remember talking to Leah on the phone for the first time. She was so kind, gentle, and welcoming. I was so eager to book her, not for the client on the books, but a friend in my future. 

We met for her and Chandler’s engagement session at their old college we laughed and had a blast. From there we had a live document for details and that girl had pictures of a location ready to share with me. She was after my planning heart. 

Then COVID came into the picture. We didn’t plan for a pandemic. My heart broke for Leah and Chandler as we started brainstorming for Plan B and keeping Plan A special for a year later. Leah quickly moved all the wedding plans from Goshen, Indiana, to Berne, Indiana. I talked on the phone with her about florists, cakes, donuts, locations, and friend vendors. She was coming to my neighborhood and I was eager to help. 

The plans for a big wedding shrank, but her plans for a marriage worth savoring was no smaller, and I could feel that in our talks and texts. I would have given her my old wedding dress if she needed it. 

As the wedding date got closer and details were in place, I think we both relaxed a little and I could feel Chandler’s excitement. Then a hard email came, the want to just have Plan B, be THE PLAN forever. Then I realized, I would want the same, who would want to do a wedding AGAIN in a year, so Plan B was the BEST plan and I was so excited for them.

A small venue, with family, simple decor, and love to hold it all together. The beauty in the wedding took my breath away. 

Take a look for yourself, a visual of the day.

A small dinner party left room for chatting and amazing speeches from the “Mother of Honor” and the brother of the groom. I think we all teared up as homage was paid to Leah and Chandler as individuals and as married couple. 

I have such great memories from this day, and I was behind the camera! Can you imagine how loved these love birds felt. This day was perfect, even better than Plan A.
