Molly and Grant! South Bend, Indiana Wedding

September 16, 2022

“Darling, just hold my handBe my girl, I’ll be your manI see my future in your eyes”-Ed SheranMolly and Grant were my second in a row of three August weddings, which I think has NEVER happened before [August was my hot month this year… but luckily not TOO hot].

Kory and I headed up to South Bend for this sweet day!  And the South Bend Century Center was perfection.  They had their ceremony out on the island, where there was a lovely breeze, we wandered around downtown just a few blocks away, and I realized, downtown South Bend is really rad, and I sort of miss it.

After an awesome ceremony, they partied!  Hooray!

Molly and Grant, your day was lovely.  Thanks so much for inviting us to be part of it!

Cheers!

Selom and Michael! Carmel, Indiana Wedding

August 23, 2022

“You gave me no other choice but to love you; all I wanna to do, is come running home to you.” – Grant GustinSelom and Mike’s wedding.  Y’all.  I just.  It was.  I have no words apparently.

Beautiful church?  Check.  Beautiful bride and groom?  Check.  Beautiful day?  Check.

I’m so glad these two found and hired me for their wedding photos!  The day was filled with so many special moments.  Speaking of moments, let’s all scroll down to see the full awesomeness of Selom’s dress and that TRAIN!  Right?!  It was the longest train I’ve photographed in a minute.  So gorgeous.

And Selom is originally from Togo, so their reception was one unlike any I’ve photographed so far.  Official dances, cash money thrown around, so much good energy and smiles and fun.  So much fun.

Selom and Mike, you two and your whole crowd were so great!  Thanks so much for inviting me to be part of your festivities!  LOVE how these photographs of your wedding day turned out.

Cheers!

BRIDE & GROOM Q&A:

Most memorable moment?

S : How emotional Mike got when I walked down the isle. It reminded me of how much he loves me :) 

M : The second that Selom’s entrance music started playing I started to tear up. When I saw her at the end of the isle I absolutely lost it and started crying.

Advice for future brides/grooms?

S : Enjoy the planning process and try not to stress. Make decisions together, so you can both contribute to an amazing day. If you don’t have an amazing bridal team (my sisters were on top of it), get a wedding planner. 

M : Don’t stress. Enjoy the day.

Funniest memory?

S : When Fr. Jonathan called me out for not being the most patient person lol.

M : Best man speech with the topics of if snakes poop and me risking HR punishment at work to talk to Selom. 

If you could do it all over would you change anything?

S : No, I would not. 

M : I wouldn’t change a thing.

Honeymoon?

Not yet, but we are planning on going to an island for some much needed relaxation and several cocktails.
