Jen and Roman | The Armory, South Bend Wedding | Indiana Wedding Photographer

Weddings have started!! And we are so excited that Jen and Roman’s wedding was the first of 2019! We survived the polar vortex and the day of was a much appreciated 30 degrees with a fresh blanket of snow.

Jen and Roman met through Jen’s family trying to set them up. Roman is the general manager of Temper Grille in Granger, where Jen’s family frequented. They thought they would make a great match but could never get the two of them together in the same place at the same time. When they finally did meet, they did in fact hit it off and they started dating. And on February 2nd their closest family and friends saw them share their vows and saw Roman put on a jean jacket as a sign of affection and commitment to Jen (her favorite item of clothing!). It was such a sweet, easy going, beautiful winter wedding.

We hope that winter weddings catch on because the glow from the snow makes for the most gorgeous lighting! So if you’re thinking of a winter wedding - DO IT!!

Mr. and Mrs. Stone | Izaak Walton League Wedding | South Bend Wedding Photographer

We have been so busy around here. Not only with work and editing photos, but with battling terrible colds and just passing it on between our family. Finally, I think it is out of the house and we are all feeling much better! And I am so happy to FINALLY bring you Zoe and Jake’s wedding preview! I can’t believe it’s been 2 weeks! Time seriously flies by.

We loved being a part of their day so much. It was a beautiful boho, garden party inspired wedding. They spared no detail, from the gorgeous florals and greenery by Burns, the lighting strung from the tent and the champagne wall, it was a perfect reception!

And it was a celebration of these two high school sweethearts that met their junior year of high school. We all laughed and cried and even got a little angry at the rain - but at the end of the day, they were married and we got some stunning photos with umbrellas (which no one ever gets!) It was a perfect day full of a lot of family and friends who supported them each step of the way. Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Stone!!
