Troi and John’s Rose Gold and Burgundy Wedding at Guthrie Meadows B&B in Bedford, Indiana was a pure autumn delight! The ceremony and reception were both located on the property {which is unbelievable!} When you first arrive at the venue, you are greeted by a large brick mansion with white accents and a lovely barn! The property alone is breathtaking, but the decor of the venue is beyond gorgeous. I am so glad that Troi picked this venue because it fit the style and atmosphere of their wedding perfectly!


Troi and John first met while attending high school together. Although they were in some of the same classes, they did not speak often. He even sat right in front of her in pre-calculus, and they still only spoke once! It wasn’t until after high school that they started dating. During their relationship, they have enjoyed hiking together with their dogs and going to the movies. They even developed some unique, annual traditions that they still enjoy.


One tradition is that John always surprises Troi with a special present at the bottom of her Christmas stocking. So, on Christmas Eve in 2016, Troi excitedly dug through her stocking. She knew there would be something special at the bottom, but she did not know how special. Once she reached the bottom, she pulled out a ring box! It was then that John proposed and asked her to be his wife! What a way to celebrate Christmas and their love!
Not only are Troi and John in love with each other, but they are also in love with laughter! Their giggles could be heard the entire wedding day, and it was contagious! You can truly tell that they are best friends. You only needed to see them together for a few minutes before knowing that their marriage would be filled with the same kind of joy!


Troi also loves to DIY, so she used her skills for her wedding! She designed and made her own bouquets and centerpieces. She also used her skills to embroider her own wedding Keds, and they are adorable!! Finally, the most meaningful design was her wedding dress. Her dress was her mother’s, and it perfectly complimented her big day!


Their big day started when the wedding party arrived at the B&B. When the bride arrived, she slipped into her gown while the rest of the wedding party put finishing details on the ceremony and reception site. After she was ready, we took a few portraits of the groom’s party and the bridal party before the first look. When we were prepping for the first look, I could feel the anticipation as John prepared to see his bride in her dress! And he did not disappoint! John’s face lit up with the sweetest smile when he first saw Troi! The adoration between the two easily led into bride and groom portraits before the ceremony.


The ceremony was very special to the couple. John’s brother, David, was the best man and the officiant, and Troi’s brother,Derrike, was the man of honor. The rest of the wedding party consisted of John and Troi’s best friends! After the ceremony, I snuck off with the bride and groom to take some sunset portraits! This is one of my favorite traditions with my brides! The images are always amazing and so sweet with the newly married couple.


Troi and John, thank you so much for letting me be apart of your wedding day! It was an amazing experience, and I loved every second! It is obvious that you are each other’s best friend. And I pray that your joy and laughter will continue throughout your marriage!
