Ceremony: Grace United Methodist Church

I absolutely have a blast photographing weddings and I feel so honored when couples allow me to share one of the most important days of their lives with them. Sara and Ricky wed on April 25th 2015 at the beautiful Grace United Methodist Church in South Bend. I love how Sara and Ricky incorporated the groom’s hispanic culture by adding the “coin” and “cord” traditions into the ceremony. These items symbolize prosperity and togetherness for the new couple.
The couple and I met and started planning for their wedding day one year in advance. This allowed us to truly plan together and map out the exact plans for their wedding day. I truly believe that proper planning is the key ingredient for a successful and organized wedding day not to mention that organization relieves wedding day stress. Sara and Ricky’s wedding day went like clock work and turned out to be a beautiful day. We didn’t allow the rainy weather to stop us from creating really cute photographs in between the ceremony and reception. We even stopped for a quick photo op in front of the South Bend Cubs stadium to incorporate the Groom’s love for baseball.
The couples reception took place at the historic St. Hedwig South Bend. The decor was beautiful and the floor to ceiling up-lighting at the venue created a perfect backdrop for beautiful reception photos. If you are considering St. Hedwig South Bend for your wedding reception, all I can say is op for the “pie package!” It will not disappoint!
Love and Blessings!
