One of the most popular locations for a summer lake wedding in Indiana is Lake Wawasee where Joan and Andrew chose to have their lakeside nuptials at the beautiful Oakwood Resort.

A summer lake wedding in Indiana is a dreamy, picturesque setting that will create unforgettable memories. Indiana is home to several beautiful lakes that offer stunning backdrops for weddings, making it an ideal location for couples who are looking for a unique and memorable wedding experience.

This crystal-clear lake is known for its gorgeous sunsets and stunning views, making it the perfect setting for a romantic outdoor wedding. Couples can choose to have their ceremony and reception on the lakeshore or on a boat, adding a touch of adventure and excitement to their special day.

The wedding ceremony was held on the lawn overlooking Lake Wawasee. There were beautiful trees and flowers everywhere, including on the flower arch that created the perfect frame of the lake in the background. Boats drove past as the sounds of the waves crashing into the shoreline was the steady sound of the ceremony.

The reception was held steps away under a tented reception space on the lawn.

The reception was decorated beautifully with lots of greenery, white linens and gold accents. The bride chose gold table numbers to match her decorating theme, which looked so elegant!
