It’s not all the time you meet a couple who are as likable as John and Gina. They’re both very genuine, good hearted people. These characteristics which have no doubt served them well as individuals will surely make for a very successful marriage going forward.
The day got rolling with John, Gina and their party getting ready at the Doubletree Hotel in South Bend. John presented Gina with a beautiful pearl necklace and a surprise reveal of their honeymoon destination. Gina presented John with a beautiful pocket watch and her mother and father with traditional hankies to dry their tears. Gina joked the Old wives’ tail goes “if you catch one of the Bride’s tears with the hanky, your crops will be grow and be watered.”
For the ceremonies Gina and John said their vows in the Basilica and partied afterward at the beautiful Palais Royale.
We wish Gina and John the best that life has to offer!

Sometimes as a cinematographer all the pieces just seem to fall into place and that’s how it went for Kelly & Jonathan’s wedding. One fantastic shot opportunity after another. Of course having their wedding at the beautiful Notre Dame Basilica and doing photos on the fantastic campus made it way easy for us!
Kelly and Jonathan were both graduates of Notre Dame but come from out East. So this was essentially a destination wedding for them and a great location for it. We really enjoyed working with the couple as they made us feel very included in their day.

How fantastic would it be to have your wedding on the campus of Notre Dame Indiana and in the winter?! Pretty cool I’d say! Carla and Tom chose The Basilica as the venue for their gorgeous December wedding this past year. The grounds of Notre dame were very inspiring with the elegant gothic architecture and cool light of winter adding to the romantic ambiance. I’d say from the magnificent Basilica to the grounds and grotto this campus is a bride’s and photographers dream come true. Tom and Carla along with Janet Hankins at Nd did an excellent job planning this gorgeous day. And of course a wedding wouldn’t be complete without a reception which was held at the beautiful South Bend Marriott Atrium. Take a look into Carla and Tom’s winter adventure with their Highlights from the day!
