{Byron & Michelle's Wedding | 08.06.11}

Wedding: St. Pius X, Granger, Indiana & Location: Notre Dame Campus, Notre Dame, Indiana

These two had an amazing day!!! Their wedding was at St. Pius - beautiful church in Granger. But first they started off with a first look at the Grotto on Notre Dame Campus. It is SO neat to observe a first look of a groom to his beautiful bride through my lens. I couldn't stop giggling with excitement behind the camera b/c Byron was SO attentive to Michelle, he even touched her flower in her hair, he noticed everything!! I love it when grooms do that. :) Purple is personally one of my VERY favorite colors and I loved everything about Michelle's wedding from her dress, to her bridesmaids dresses to the purple flower in her hair and all the way down to her kickin' classy shoes. She's just a top-notch bride and I absolutely adore her. After their first glance we took some pix on ND campus, just trolled around and had a great time.

Thank you Byron and Michelle for allowing me to capture some of the most precious memories of your lives - may you live happily together forever. You guys are WONDERFUL.

Reception: River Terrace, Mishawaka, Indiana
Byron and Michelle had a beautiful reception at River Terrace in Mishawaka. Very lovely venue and the celebration was held with their closest friends and family. Michelle and Byron made a memorable entrance and led us off into a very well practiced first dance - they looked AMAZING! Kudos to you guys!! It may have been raining outside but inside it was a heartwarming celebration of love. Michelle's brother sang a song while he played guitar which was great. I also couldn't get enough of the fun props on the table and the cake topper which showed a bride dragging the gamed-out groom by the collar and was titled: "Game Over." Ha. What a fun wedding and a GREAT couple! Love these guys!!
