As I drove up to the venue, I knew this day was going to be extra special for Emma and Jake. Their wedding day took place at the Wilds in Bloomington, IN– a wedding venue situated on 125 acres of rolling farmland in Brown County, Indiana. Driving along the long, white gravel driveway you pass wildflowers and trees, which takes you to the most perfect white building set up on top of a hill. Emma and Jake promised a life together up on that hill surrounded by their closest family and friends.
Emma and Jake first met each other in high school when Jake offered to give her a ride home one day when he saw her walking to the bus. She was drenched from the pouring rain and she was carrying one too many bags, and her instrument from band class. With rain dripping from her hair, she replied with “I’ll have to ask my mom.” He didn’t take her home that day, but he did the next day, and then the next day…. They dated for five years when on a night at home, just the two of them, Jake asked his best friend to marry him.
Their wedding day could not have been more perfect. These two worked so hard to make this day become everything they hoped it to be! They were originally planning on getting married in June of 2020, but with a worldwide pandemic brewing, they knew that they would have to consider other options. I’ve have told them a million times, and I’ll say it again here– they handled everything with such grace! They had to push their wedding day back a couple of months, but regardless of the circumstance, they remained joyful and hope-filled. When their big day did finally arrive, it could not have been a more perfect day.
I cannot think of two people more deserving of such a special day. Congratulations to the new Mr + Mrs Hubbell!
