The year 2015 saw me photographing weddings all over Northwest Indiana, Chicago and Michigan. Let's take a look back at this spectacular year in weddings. At the end of this article I will embed my Northwest Indiana Wedding Photographer Year In Review video for even more images. Be sure to click on an image for a larger view.

We began the year at the grand ballroom of The Allure with Ivy and Luscious and then it was on to Trinity Hall in Chesterton with Kelsi and Peter.
Usually a few winter weddings start off the year, but 2015 saw us starting in the Spring in a big way. One of the busier weekends was a double header wedding at the old Crown Point Courthouse. Kelly and Matt picked the perfect venue for their 1920's themed wedding and Beth and Charlie closed it out with their elegant ballroom dancing inside the building known as The Grande Old Lady.
This past Spring saw really heavy rains all over Northwest Indiana and the entire Midwest. We tried, but could not escape the elements for Kelly and Danny and Dolores and Erich's wedding. It didn't matter as we embraced the storms and got our pictures inside and out. We were back again at The Allure and also shooting at Sand Creek in Chesterton. We were able to see the sun in full view for Ashley and Matthew's outdoor wedding at Centennial Park.
June brought some more themed weddings. We had baseball at Erica and Alex's wedding and Harry Potter and the literary arts in general at Katie and Kurt's reception. Lauren and Ryan had a terrific church wedding in Hebron and then it was on to an open air reception at the YMCA Pavilion in Valparaiso, Indiana.
As the Summer progressed, stops at County Line Orchard and Fair Oaks Farmhouse gave some some rustic wedding looks. Megan and Bobby brought the fireworks to their July 4th wedding and Ogden Gardens in Valparaiso gave some great scenery for Stephanie and Brett's wedding photos.
Photographing at The Pavilion At Sandy Pines is always a thrill and the Summer had me back at Sand Creek for the second time in 2015 for Jennifer and Daniel's wedding. April and Fred took me to Avalon Manor for their pink and black colored outdoor wedding.
Soon I was back in Crown Point for Erica and Jon's wedding and then it was onto the estate of "a guy named Bob" for Katie and Logan's outdoor ceremony. I tease as bob is a great family friend to them and he welcomed us to his wonderful home and all of the spectacular scenery that if offers - from lakes to woods to centuries old furniture. We then made out way back to Chesterton and photos at Coffee Creek Park with Allen and Nicole. If you live in Lowell, you may seen the hayride with Gwen and Keith parading through town.
I usually make several stops at Centennial Park throughout the course of the year and the outdoor wedding of Katherine and Justin brought us back again. Maria and Seth brought us to the LaPorte, Indiana area for their Catholic wedding ceremony and then a reception at Trinity Hall.
Fall weddings are right up there with June weddings and this year really showed that. Some of our stops included Krystin and Chachi's wedding photos at Lake County Fairgrounds and Michelle and Derrick's fun shots at Carmelite Shrine in Munster, Indiana.
Late Fall saw us venturing off to Chicago for Jen and Nathan's wedding as well as the Halloween celebration of Matt and Michelle and the Autumn themed wedding of Sandra and Andrew, all at Radisson Hotel. I can't leave out the first ever wedding at Perry Court in downtown Crown Point!!
