Basilica of the Sacred Heart Notre Dame Wedding – Heather and Matt

Heather and Matt’s wedding was a dream, start to finish. We had been counting down the days to shoot their wedding, their ceremony was to be held in a photography bucket list location after all and it was so perfect. We started our day with finishing touches before heading to the grotto area on Notre Dame’s campus for Heather and Matt’s first look. After a few portraits their guests began to arrive for their ceremony so we headed to the incredibly gorgeous Basilica of the Sacred Heart for their ceremony. Their ceremony was so perfect and their huge smiles stayed on the entire time they were wed. Afterwards we walked around the lakes on campus for a few shots before heading to their reception at Waterford Estates Lodge in South Bend. After a few speeches and their first dance the dance floor opened up for some fun partying and the pair smashed cupcakes in each other’s faces before we wrapped up the evening with a few last portraits in the late afternoon sun.

These two were so darn sweet and their day lived up to everything we thought it would be, so so good.

Exploration Acres Wedding – Tori and Levi

Tori and Levi’s wedding day was a total blast. We knew it was going to be awesome because we’ve known these two and their families for awhile now after shooting Levi’s sister’s wedding a few years back, family sessions, and shooting Tori’s brother’s engagement session just the week before. We were so pumped to meet up with this crew again and it didn’t disappoint.

We started the day with the girls getting ready before heading to Exploration Acres for the ceremony. Tori and Levi shared a first look after Tori shared a sweet moment with her dad and we shot portraits in the pretty woods surrounding the property before guests began to arrive and take their seats. Their ceremony took place in the prettiest light, so so good when that happens, and after sharing their first kiss they made their way to the barn for their reception. After dinner and a few sweet speeches the pair took to the dance floor and kicked off the party. We took a break from the dancing to shoot a few more portraits in the late, golden light and headed back up to the party that raged on long after we wrapped up for the night.

Shooting this one was like hanging out with family and we are so thankful to keep working with awesome people like Tori, Levi, and their families.

St Joe Farm Wedding – Mary and Andrew

Mary and Andrew held their incredible wedding on a perfect June afternoon and it couldn’t have been better. We began our day with everyone finishing getting ready and headed to the gorgeous St Monica Church in Mishawaka for their ceremony. Andrew’s reaction to Mary walking down the aisle left us all a little teary and was the perfect start to their beautiful ceremony. The music alone made this one so so gorgeous and unique. Definitely the most beautiful ceremony we’ve ever witnessed. After exchanging rings and vows the pair headed out the doors amid cheers and lavender flying in the air and we headed across the street for a few portraits before their reception kicked off. Their reception was held at St Joe Farm in Granger and was just a stunning as the beginning of the day. The huge event barn was covered in ivy and twinkle lights and had the most romantic feel. After dinner and speeches the first dances kicked off and their respective college houses shared special moments, a song with Mary and her friends and a hilarious naming ceremony with Andrew’s crew. We popped outside for a few moments as the sun set on the farm lands beyond and headed back in as the dance floor thumped the rest of the night. Even the father got in on the dancing! Seriously one of the most fun dance floors ever to shoot! This wedding was one of those days that is just so jam packed that  your feet ache but you can’t stop smiling. These two are some of the kindest, sweetest, down to earth people we’ve ever met and we can’t thank them enough for inviting us along for their amazing celebration.
