Last month I had the opportunity to photograph Jennifer and Craig’s South Bend wedding. The day was perfect and started at the Ivy Hotel near the campus of Notre Dame. The first thing I noticed when I arrived to the hotel was the really pretty wrap around porch in the front of the building. You can imagine my excitement when the bride, Jennifer, gave me the go ahead to photograph her dress, shoes, and other details outside on the porch. There are not too many brides that would give the go ahead to have their wedding dress photographed outdoors. Thank you Jennifer for trusting me! As a result we ended up with really beautiful dress and detail shots which are now some of my favorites to date. I loved the “I DO” stickers on the bottom of the brides shoes. Super cute!
Jennifer you looked absolutely stunning as a bride! I always make it a point after the bride has gotten ready to take a few portraits of her while the make-up is fresh.
Jennifer and Craig are big football fans so they wanted to incorporate the sport into their South Bend wedding photography. After the ceremony we traveled to several spots including the College Football Hall of Fame, located in downtown South Bend, for some creative football themed wedding day photos.
Before heading to the reception we stopped by the campuses of St. Mary’s college and Notre Dame which are both beautiful locations for South Bend wedding photography. Thank you Jennifer and Craig for allowing me to share and capture your special day. You and your wedding party were great to work with. Congrats again to both of you!
