Raben Backyard wedding

Nick and Emily Raben celebrated their wedding day on a beautiful, sunny September afternoon. Both their ceremony and reception were at Nick's parents' gorgeous home in Wadesville, Indiana. The September sun was warm and the breeze was refreshing as they recited their own vows to each other in front of their loved ones. The bride and groom were laid back and so fun and their big day reflected their personalities perfectly.

It was super important to both Emily and Nick that their kids be a part of their special day. Emily had one of their sons walk her down the isle, while their other son and daughter were the ring bearer and flower girl. Emily's mom shared a beautiful prayer at the beginning of their ceremony that was so sweet and special.

When it was time for family photos, I was suprised to find out that every single guest at Nick and Emily's wedding was a part of their family. It was evident how close their family is and how much they enjoy spending time together. There was not a single moment where laughter was not heard! At their reception, Emily mentioned to me how excited she was to now get to be a part of such a great, fun-loving and LARGE family!

Nick and Emily shared their first dance together as husband and wife with their youngest son- just more evidence of their love for not only each other but their family and children.

It was such an honor to document Nick and Emily's wedding day! Their day was so incredibly fun, relaxed, and absolutely gorgeous and I was so happy to be a part of it!

From Nick- "Kristen was an absolute joy to work with! She was fun, game for everything and let the day unfold naturally. Kristen has a wonderful eye and captured everything perfectly...including kiddos that aren't the easiest to direct. The quality of the pictures is amazing. She truly does a wonderful job! We highly recommend Kristen!"
