The campus at IU is one of the most beautiful in the county and in the fall it’s at it’s prime. As an IU alumni I am always looking for a reason to get back to Bloomington and luckily when Jenn and Alex got engaged I got a reason! You may remember them from their Dallas engagement session (See that HERE).
I played volleyball with Alex back in our college days and when he and Jenn decided to get married, Bloomington became the obvious choice for these two alumni!
I met the ladies at the IMU where they were getting ready in their adorable matching plaid, while my second photographer Erika met up with the guys. This will forever be one of my favorite first looks! We wanted to meet up at Sample Gates, which can be a very busy area for foot traffic. I sent Erika and the guys ahead to try to detour the crowds around the middle so we could try not to have a ton of people in the background. Mission accomplished! Alex’s face when he saw his bride for the first time was priceless!
After strolling around campus taking in all the gorgeous fall colors we headed back to Alumni Hall for their ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. The dance floor was PACKED until the very last song! It was so much fun to see some familiar faces from my college days! We ended the evening with sparklers and a night shot on Kirkwood as they headed off to the after party at Nicks!
Here are some (ok a lot) of my favorites! Congrats to the newlyweds!
