Emily & Johnny | An Elegant Autumn Wedding | West Lafayette

I met Emily & Johnny last year during their Christmas tree farm engagement session. As soon as their shoot was over, I was totally smitten with them! Emily and Johnny have that forever-young type of love. They were so much fun to capture and I could not wait until their wedding day! November 11, 2017 finally arrived and everything was absolutely stunning. From the decor to gowns to the flowers, Emily & Johnny's wedding was a dream. Many laughs were had and sentimental tears were even shed. But more importantly, their special day focused on the Bittner and Jay families coming together as one in celebration of the newlyweds. Add-in deep maroon and classic black details, a bunch of Purdue alums, and some prettyyyy perfect autumn weather, and you've got yourself one killer wedding! I think I'm going to be reliving this day over and over again <3 Enjoy this peek into Emily & Johnny's elegant wedding day!

Three generations of wedding rings <3

Emily's dad seeing her in her wedding dress for the first time had to be one of the sweetest moments ever. His face says it all!

After spending the morning preparing for the big day, it was finally time for Emily & Johnny's first look! We were so lucky to still have these gorgeous fall colors as a back drop for their special moment.

Mr. and Mrs. Jay, everybody!!!

Finally, it was time to party! Emily & Johnny's gorgeous reception was held at Purdue University's Ross-Ade Stadium. The dance floor was bumpin' all night long!

Thank you, Emily & Johnny, for allowing me to document your special day. It was such a joy for me to capture a part of your love story and I cannot wait to see what the next chapter holds for you two <3

XOXO - Cassie
