Kaylin married her husband, Chad, at at Meadow Springs in Francesville, Indiana.

The ceremony spot is absolutely PERFECT! We love the arbor, the flowers, all of it!

After saying “I Do”, the newlyweds were showered with confetti as they made their way back down the aisle as husband and wife!

After the “I Do’s”, everyone moved inside for a beautiful reception!

All of the decor had a rustic touch and we love the simple, yet beautiful, centerpieces.

Guests were not only treated to yummy cake but also an ice cream bar featuring Fair Oaks ice cream - YUM!

How did these two meet?

“Chad and I first met at Purdue University. I became friends with his sister, Andrea, and she eventually introduced me to him my freshman year. My sophomore year Chad and I lived in the same apartment complex and we always played sand volleyball together and eventually we started hanging out more and more.”

 How did he propose??

“Chad and I had planned a couple’s trip to Tennessee during the summer before our final year at Purdue with his sister and her boyfriend. On the 2nd day of our trip, he led me to a beautiful waterfall (Abrams Falls) and proposed to me while we stood on a rock in front of the falls.”

Was it a surprise or did she know it was coming?

“I had a feeling it was coming!”

Tell us all about your dress buying experience!

“Something Blue was so helpful when I was looking for my dream dress. I had brought all my bridesmaids, my mom, and my mother in law, all of the girls picked out a dress for me. I found my dress within one hour of being in the boutique. It was such a fun experience, something I will always remember and cherish. Everyone was very positive and supportive!”

How did Kaylin know her dress was "the one"?

“When I put my dress on, I instantly knew it was the one I was going to get married in. I got this feeling that is so hard to describe, almost like butterflies in your stomach but better. The reaction I received from my group when I came out of the dressing room confirmed my feeling that it was “the one”. “  

Lets y’all wedding planning!

“My favorite part of planning our wedding was visiting all the potential venue sites. It was a time for me and my husband to bond and collaborate together on a place that we could start our forever at.

My least favorite part of planning was selecting who was going to be on the guest list. I have so many friends and a lot of family that it was so hard for me to decide where I had to draw a line, so that we didn’t have over 500 guests at the wedding!”

What was her favorite moment of from her big day?

“My all-time favorite part of our wedding was reading our vows to one another. Chad and I decided to write our own vows and it was so fun to read our personalized and unique vows to each other in front of our friends and family.”

Any advice for brides currently planning their wedding?

“Enjoy the entire process. It can be stressful at times, but it is all totally worth it in the end.

  Have fun!! Your wedding day will be the best day of your life and it will go extremely fast. Don’t stress over the small things, ask for help when you need it, and live in the moment.”

Congratulations, Kaylin and Chad!! Thank you for letting us share your beautiful wedding day!
