Kaitlyn and Alex | Downtown South Bend Engagement Session

When I first met with Kaitlyn and Alex at the Chicory Cafe, I knew right away I wanted to photograph their wedding. A May wedding at the new River House Bed and Breakfast at The Morris Estate. An intimate affair for their closest family and friends to celebrate their marriage! And Bed and Breakfast weddings will always have such a special place in my heart, because Miles and I were married at a bed and breakfast, and all our families stayed the weekend with us there. It was perfect and I know that Kaitlyn and Alex’s wedding in just 3 short weeks will be too.

We had so much fun in the warm weather. We talked about their final wedding plans and the excitement was written all over their faces. They beamed as they talked about their day, knowing it was just a month away. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding, I know it is going to be full of so many laughs, so much love, and maybe a few happy tears!

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!!
