Mike and Marcy are a fun couple who love listening and playing music as well as watching football on Sundays while their cat runs around their home. They told me they were having a band at their wedding reception at the Halls of Saint George and a great one at that, The Crawpuppies whom I know well. I was excited to capture their day.
We started out at the couple's home in Cedar Lake as Marcy and the girls got their make up done by The Beauty Pros. Stories were being told and lots of laughs as I took detailed shots of Marcy's garter, shoes and more along with Mike's guitars. Her mom helped her into her dress as Kurt Cobain looked on from above.
Soon we were off to dodge the rain and cool temperatures at Lemon Lake Park in Crown Point, Indiana for the first look as well as some fun wedding party images and romantic wedding photos of the bride and groom.
I let the couple have a few moments on the pier together and took a good number of images to show off the wonderfully saturated Fall color in the background. We then took wedding party pictures and Marcy and Mike walked all over the park with us taking photos for their wedding book.
The late afternoon wedding ceremony at Halls of Saint George was moved indoors due to cold temperatures and the occasional drizzling rain. Friends and family whooped it up as the couple were married. We then scooped them up for a few more images outside the hall before dinner and the party began.
I had a ball covering their rock and roll themed wedding reception, listening to great live music from The Crawpuppies and taking the bridesmaids up for a photo opportunity on the drum kit. The rings were placed on the Fender Stratocaster to go with the theme of the day.
