This intimate sunrise wedding comes to us from Kristen Mittlestedt Photography, based in Fort Wayne, Indiana! Here’s Kristen to tell us more:

Toria and Kevin planned an intimate ceremony at a derby home in Kentucky. Only close family were invited, as they wanted to keep the day solely about family and love. The unique aspect of this wedding, their first kiss was timed right at sunrise.

See more after the cut!

When I was first approached about photographing this wedding, I asked Toria, “Why Sunrise?”. She responded that “All good things happen in the morning!”. They wanted to spend their wedding day married and together, rather than getting ready for the big moment.

So right before dawn they had their closest relatives meet them in a nearby forest. After the ceremony, they enjoyed a big catered breakfast and some custom created tea.
