It was a beautiful September day for JoAnna and Brian’s Wedding celebration at Tippecanoe Place Restaurant in South Bend, IN. Sometimes magic really strikes between the location, planning, weather and execution and it did this time in spades! I love how JoAnna and Brian’s wedding although elegant and refined had an very relaxed feel. Cheers to Belle Behind the Ball for excellent planning and double cheers to JoAnna and Brian for saying I do!
It was great spending the weekend with Colleen and Dan. To say they know how to throw a party would be an understatement. They and their families left no stone unturned from their Rehearsal dinner at the Exchange in South Bend which we were present to record to their amazing wedding day.
They were married at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on the campus of Notre Dame, IN. After the ceremony the campus served as a backdrop for gorgeous candid shots taken along with the talented Josephiney Photography. Family is very important to Colleen and Dan, and they were active participants in the wedding day. Colleen’s sisters had double duty as maid of honor, and Dan’s sister was also in the wedding party. Both father’s gave eloquent speeches at the rehearsal dinner and reception respectively.
The reception was at the Palais Royale. The grand venue was perfect for the large group of guests plus the band for dancing. The event design added to the elegance of the space and candles all along the balcony where the couple was introduced were a unique touch. You can see what I’m talking about in their trailer film!
