Mike the cowboy married his cowgirl Lisa at Saint Maria Goretti Church this past Saturday. You will see later in this post why I'm making cowboy references. All i can say is, this was a fun one and full of surprises for guests as well as the photographers. The happy couple met online and it became an Indiana and Texas nuptial in short order.
The day began at Lisa's parent's home in Munster, Indiana with touching candids of mother and daughter as well as lots of laughter with the bridesmaids.
I don't know too much about motorcycles, but I do know that Mike's red and black bike looks super cool. I made sure we took a portrait of him on it after he drove up and guests arrived for the ceremony at St. Maria Goretti Church in Dyer, Indiana.
Father Charles is quite the character and we sure enjoyed his improvisation of the ceremony. He had Mike and Lisa laughing throughout. Their lighting of the unity candles was one of the few serious moments as light shone in from above.
We took family formals as well as dramatic couple's shots in the church and then it was on to Centennial Park for some fun wedding photos.
The girls tipped me off ahead of time that they were going to photo bomb the groomsmen so we were ready to capture all of the fun. Mike wanted to show off the writing on the bottom of his shoes, so I did some romantic couple in the sun images at the same time. We then went all around the park taking romantic wedding photos on a warm August afternoon.
The wedding reception at Wicker Park Social Center is where the cowboy references really start to kick in. Friends and family had no idea where the groom was until he burst into the room in his white hat and singing to the crowd and introducing his new wife.
Ladies and gentleman, Texas has arrived in Indiana!! The new Mr. and Mrs. Holland have entered the building!!!
