Kate and Jimmy were married at The Covenant Presbyterian Church in Ligonier with a reception following.
After spending a wonderful morning with Kate and Jimmy at their engagement session Barb and I were very excited for the arrival of their wedding day.
After a rehearsal dinner at the club, the bridal party and families headed off to the hopping night spot in Ligonier – the bowling alley. I spent the night before the wedding in town and wandered over to take some photographs of all the fun – bowling and dancing to a talented country western band.
On wedding day, while the guys were off at the skeet range at the club, the ladies spent the morning getting ready at Kate’s family home. We enjoy that time – it’s always relaxed fun chatter and some time to take photographs of the bride’s dress, jewelry and the details.
Every wedding is unique, with a different group of people and personalities, which makes every wedding day special and interesting and so much fun for us. We have some couples who are a bit more traditional, interested in more portraits and some couples like Kate and Jimmy who want an all-photojournalistic coverage – photographing the day as it happened with no separate photographs of the bridal party or bride and groom.
Kate’s gown was absolutely gorgeous, a Monique Lhuillier creation. the Free Spirit band from Washington DC were amazing, motion imagery by Nate Shearer – all planned and coordinated by the extremely talented Sheila Weiner, president of The Event Group.
Kate and Jimmy honeymooned in Rivera Maya and are enjoying married life at their home in Chicago.
Thanks so much for the honor of allowing us to share and capture the story of your wedding day!
