Megan and Bob Married In South Bend Indiana. Lovely wedding day. Elegant Palais Royale Ballroom near St. Joseph River. Beautiful wedding day!

Megan & Bob | Married on a lovely South Bend, Indiana wedding day!

location

Megan and Bob were married in South Bend Indiana at the historic St. Joseph Church by Rev. Matt Fase. They hosted their wedding reception just down the road at the lovely Palais Royale Ballroom, also in South Bend. Both locations were really perfect for their day. With close proximity to the one another and the city of South Bend it made commuting a snap. We were also in walking distance to the St. Joseph River and had some great views there for photos. The Palais is in my opinion one of the most elegant ballrooms in the city and didn’t fail to impress for Megan and Bob. With beautiful white, yellow and gold tones, pin lighting, and floral arrangements it looked amazing. I’ve had a wonderful history filming at the Palais in past years. Check out some of our other favorite Palais wedding couples here!

The Wedding Day

We began the day getting ready in Megan’s beautiful family home. Lots of natural light for details and makeup with the talented Stephanie Jean were key. Following were the couples heartfelt vows at the church. Speeches by maid of honor and best man and Megan’s fathers hilarious speech. He candidly portrayed the similarities he and Bob shared which helped them get along well. I actually overheard him joke with Bob as he handed off Megan that he would touch his nose during the ceremony if Bob’s team scored, lol.

Laura and Zach's great love story culminated with a wedding! It was a beautiful outside event at Morris Estate in Niles, MI. Beautiful weather. Excitement and fun.

Morris Estate Wedding | Laura + Zach

Laura and Zach’s great wedding day love story led them through twists and turns frustrations and breakthroughs in their planning process. All to a beautiful wedding day surrounded by family and friends. Hats off to this couple they had to put off being married for nearly a year from their original wedding date. But thank goodness they stuck with it! Their day was incredible. From first meeting the ladies and gentlemen on the wedding day the excitement was palpable. And that excitement and fun continued throughout.

We managed to get one of the most gorgeous days of the year for them. It was the perfect Michigan day, clear and warm in the afternoon with and bit of crisp cool lake air come evening. The ceremony and reception were on site at Morris Estate in Niles, MI. A venue we’ve come to know and love over the years.

The entire wedding was a perfect fit for the bride and groom. Their patience and persistence paid off big with a truly great wedding day love story. Cheers to them!!

Journeyman Distillery wedding. Whiskey, whips, corsets and weddings. Grainery, Warren Hall are beautiful events venues.

Journeyman Distillery wedding | Three Oaks, MI | Natalie and Eric

The journeyman!

What a space! Natalie and Eric hosted their Journeyman Distillery wedding in Three Oaks, Michigan. We love Michigan weddings Journeyman is actually a distillery, restaurant and event venue all under one roof. The wedding and reception took place in Warren Hall one of three event spaces on the third floor. The upstairs event areas are full of natural light which are perfect for cinematography. Everything about the space was warm, inviting and full of character. The building space was originally the feather bone factory, a corset and buggy whip maker some 100 years ago and still bears old industrial remnants as reminders of that. The bottom floor of the space is the Staymaker restaurant, whiskey distillery and store. If you enjoy the sweet smell of hash brewing and the savory aroma of food on the grill you’ll love this place. I liked the chill vibe of the restaurant and whiskey bar with tasting tours going on. You might think a wedding wouldn’t want to share a building with a restaurant full of strangers but that’s kind of the culture of an up scale distillery. People, food and drink and social interaction. The Journeyman is known for it’s excellent whiskey and having special drinks & whiskey on site is a boon for many wedding guests.

The wedding!

Bride and groom got prepped on site, did their first look in an empty bar on the 1st floor. Then we went upstairs to the venue where we enjoyed their photo session in the Grainery. They had a beautiful ceremony right at sunset we could watch through the windows. Then it was a room flip from ceremony to reception while guests enjoyed cocktails nearby. Floral and event design by Snapdragon designs and Cyndi Basker from Celebrated Events. Guests enjoyed day of party favors, catering and drinks by Journeyman. A nice advantage of having a restaurant/distillery in house! The sights and sounds of Natalie and Eric’s wedding were absolutely lovely. We had a fantastic time seeing their event unfold in before our eyes and our cameras! Eric was a former professional soccer player and he and his friends put some of the energy and endurance required for soccer towards their dancing! It was a wild dance floor let me tell you.

From their first look when we arrived to getting down on the dance floor Natalie & Eric’s energy and chemistry together was amazing. Congrats to the new Mr and Mrs. Gehrig!

Beautiful Tabor Hill Winery wedding in Buchannon, MI. Wedding in winter outdoors for A & B. We worked with Burns Rentals and Special Events.

Tabor Hill Winery winter wedding | Buchanan, MI | Brandon & Amelia

Brandon and Amelia hosted their Tabor Hill Winery wedding winter event outdoors in November at Tabor Hill Winery in Buchanan, Michigan! It was a perfect day for a winter wedding with a little snow on the ground but clear skies and not too cool. Ok, so it’s a little unusual to host a wedding outdoors in November, in Michigan no less! I wouldn’t recommend it to the average bride but… if you have the gumption, the know how and the resources to pull it off it can be an incredible, visceral experience.

Let’s just say Amelia, her family and co-workers with Burns Rentals did have the resources and the know how to pull it off. They are a full service special events rental and design company located in Mishawaka. Great people who I would strongly recommend! They did an amazing job from an outdoor cigar tent to snow sweeping machines and beautiful open flame area heaters. The team at Burns had all the tricks to keep us warm while outside and inside. They planned, designed and furnished the event. Since their team was there to play they made a great choice and hired our Angie with Belle Behind the Ball to coordinate the day! Here’s another great event Burns Rentals provided for we filmed for Sarah & Justin

All in all it was an incredible day. We were honored to be part of their celebration!
