It was a gorgeous day for an outdoor wedding at the gazebo at Trinity Hall in Chesterton, Indiana. Part of St. Patrick's Parish, it's a great destination for a summer wedding. In the above image, our bride and groom Kelsi and Peter dance alone at dusk in front of the gazebo where they were married. It was a fabulous day. Let me tell you all about it...
The girls got ready in downtown Chesterton at The Waterbird Hotel. I was a fly on the wall taking candid photos, detail shots and taking in all of the warmth and laughter.
Hidden away behind St. Patricks Parish, the school and Trinity Hall itself is a gorgeous valley of greenery with a gazebo in the center. The late afternoon sun shined down upon the guests and the bride and groom during their ceremony.
We captured the first kiss of course, but I always say my favorite is the moment that occurs just after the kiss. Kelsi and Peter had a laugh that I imagine was part joy and part relief as well. The nervous part was done. Now it was time for some pictures and then party time.
I knew I wanted to use the balcony to overlook the wonderful view of the ceremony area so I lined the wedding party up for the following shot along with some fun ones too.
Now, if you look closely at the following collage and the preceding ceremony photo collage, you will notice that the bridesmaids have gone barefoot. Yes, The Great Shoe Rebellion of 2015 was underway!! Don't worry Kelsi, I think they still love you anyway.
I love it when I see lots of dancers at wedding receptions and the beautiful wood floor at Trinity Hall saw plenty of them. I like to see the couples enjoy their party and I have myself and my second shooter capture the action from afar. So much joy in the bride and groom's first dance as well as the mom dances.
Today's post is merely a sneak peek with many more images to come. Follow the social links below for more images on Facebook and Instagram. Our final image sums it all up. Kelsi and Peter have a whole lot of heart!! Enjoy...
