Bristol, Indiana Wedding At Solomon Fowler Mansion

The Summer Celebration of Allison & Max At The Historic Solomon Fowler Mansion and The BRAND NEW Modern Barn | Photography by Ashley Wentz

I could list dozens of reasons why Solomon Fowler Mansion is an amazing venue---every nook and cranny inside this newly renovated mansion boasts an opportunity to create a gorgeous photo. The floor to ceiling windows and light colored walls certainly lend to this fact. AND it's all inclusive all the way down to allowing the bridal party to spend the weekend of the wedding there. Talk about taking some stress out of your wedding day knowing that your whole wedding party is waking up in one place! Sign me up!!

And let's not forget about the modern barn that was just added to the property !! Allison & Max were one of the first couples to dance the night away inside the brand new barn.

Pro Tip: For photographers or couples holding a wedding here, keep an eye out in the evening and be ready as the sun dips lower in the sky. The barn is at a perfect location with its back towards the western sky to catch a dynamic sun flare just over and next to the peak of the barn. GORGEOUS!! and well worth stepping away from the reception for a photo at that moment.

We could not have asked for a better photographer than Ashley! She made us feel so comfortable and didn’t hesitate for a second when we asked her to take certain pictures! She was very easy and friendly to work with and helped out tremendously with the scheduling for the day. We can’t thank her enough! The best advice I have for the next bride to be is to enjoy every moment of your wedding day because before you know it, it’s over. Take a moment to step back and soak everything in! - Allison & Max

Here's the backstory on the above photo...Max is a South Bend Firefighter and these are a few of his brothers that work alongside him to keep our community safe. Hats off to all these men!! As far as that RED hat, I never did get a straight answer about that one, but I can't wait to show Allison and Max all the appearances it made in photos :)

A HUGE Special thanks to all the vendors that helped make their day amazing and to Delaney with Delany Keirn Photography for assisting me with photos :)
