Joel and Shaina held their Fall wedding at two very prestigious venues - The Center For Visual and Performing Arts and Briar Ridge Country Club.
Our day started at The Center For Visual and Performing Arts in Munster, Indiana with a "no cry zone" set up in the bridal suite. Sister of the bride and MOH Chandra could not contain herself much to the amusement of all the other women. Shaina's dress was a wonderful combination of neutral and white.
The gallery at the center would become the setting for cocktail hour later in the day, but it became our backdrop for bride and bridesmaid photos that afternoon. Shaina was pure elegance against the grand piano with the wonderful artwork surrounding her.
I could not let the spiral staircase at the Center go unused. I also knew it would soon be filled with people attending the reception and other events. In early afternoon, however, we had it to ourselves.
The outdoor ceremony saw us moving to Briar Ridge Country Club in Dyer, Indiana. The bride's nephew Tommy let Joel know that Shaina was on her way. The nuptials were tucked away outside one of the ballrooms off the golf course with sunshine streaming down.
After family photos, we captured the wedding party together along with images of the newly married couple. Some of the trees on the golf course are quite large and I couldn't wait to get the bride and groom under the shade of one of them with the Autumn leaves and blue skies.
For the reception it was back to The Center for Visual and Performing Arts in Munster, Indiana. The gallery was swinging with cocktail hour guests and the main ballroom looked elegant as the newlyweds were introduced and toasts began from the best man and MOH.
Not only did Shaina get married on this fine October day, she also won the air guitar championship as band Final Say rocked the room into the night.
