Michelle and Derrick's Fall wedding at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Griffith saw them surrounded by a large group of family and friends. And, as you can tell from the image above, some very large celebratory bubbles as well.
Our day started with bridal prep at The Patrician where the reception would also take place. It was a whirlwind of activity with hairspray, make up, laughter, champagne and more.
Derrick's mom brought along baby pictures of the groom to show off while Kristina, MOH and sister of the bride displayed stuffed bears representing the bride and groom as part of the decor.
I photographed the bride and bridesmaids at The Patrician while my second photographer photographed the guys near the church. Then it was off for a first look with Dad and then the ceremony.
I love the long aisle way at St. Mary's Church in Griffith and the balcony that gives me a bird's eye view of the ceremony. It's a lovely church and it was filled with love and laughter during Michelle and Derrick's wedding vows.
The newly married couple were radiant as they exited the church...
After family pictures it was off to Carmelite Shrine in Munster for some hidden forest, Fall wedding photos.
The Patrician was filled with a purple hue for the celebration. Wine was distributed to every guest and also served as a table placard. The toasts were funny and heartfelt and the cake was cut and eaten. It was now time for dancing and fun!!
