The main ballroom of The Allure is simply majestic. When Ivy and Lucious told me their wedding would take place at this premiere wedding venue in downtown Laporte, Indiana, I knew I'd be taking a few wide angle photos such as the one above.
The day started out with our bride Ivy getting ready in the bridal suite on the second floor. Our groom Lucious got a last minute shave from his barber in the downstairs area as we took detail photos all around the venue, including Ivy's three pairs of shoes for the occasion.
As sun leaked in from above, we did the bride and groom first look using the wonderful staircase at the east end of the ballroom. It was a fun moment as Ivy came down the stairs and Lucious saw her in her dress for the first time. We then went all around the still empty venue taking bride and groom wedding photos as well as wedding party pictures. We were out to capture the elegance and grandness of The Allure as well as do some fun photos.
I knew Ivy would be up for stretching across the balcony like a queen greeting her village of admirers, and she nailed it. I love her expression and how the railing shadows onto her dress.
I loved how the ceremony aisle-way was decorated with petals and it just seemed like a natural wedding photo to have our bride and groom take a walk between the tulips.
The ceremony room filled with family and friends as the the minister kept things loose. The vows were warm and loving and filled with laughter too. I spotted some future brides in the audience too!! :)
The happy couple entered the ballroom with their son Ivan at their side and kicked off the party. DJ Shaun Kelly rocked the room with music as guests danced and visited the photo booth. The shoe game kept everyone laughing.
The first dance was moody and atmospheric with the purple hue of uplighting and glowing chandeliers in the majestic ballroom.
