It was sweet to kick off the year with Catherine and Conor at their wedding in South Bend. The weather was cool and cloudy and the light was perfect but they didn’t need help from the amazing sunlight to look great. They’re a beautiful couple!
The reception was full of amazing speeches but one thing Catherine’s father said really moved the room. “What do Conor and I have in common? 37 years ago I was standing at the alter of the Basilica waiting for those two medieval doors to open and I saw a vision. I saw a vision of strength, grace, intelligence with a smile as wide as the Mississippi and a heart and soul that are stronger. And from that day to this nothin changed. Conor three hours ago you saw the exact same thing. And because that apple didn’t fall far from that tree we have a bond that will never be broken.”

It was a pleasure getting to know Alicia and Paul during our pre-planning process and working with them on their wedding day. The day was a wonderful expression of their love and shared experiences. From their personal vows to the gigantic apple fritter wedding cake (from their favorite bakery) these personal touches really helped make the day special. We can’t fail to mention, Paul being a talented composer wrote and recorded the song you’ll hear for Alicia. Amazing yes?

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!

Abbie and Scott are such a sweet and handsome couple, and their wedding was full of beauty. Those attributes paired with the excellent work of our talented videographers Rachel and Zarah was a winning combination! I think you’ll agree when you watch their film. Everything about their day was beautiful – from getting ready at The Conrad hotel in Indy, to the candid photo session with Tracy and Troy, and the amazing natural light that filled the Skyline Club during the ceremony and reception. Our best to the happy couple!
