Wow - going through wedding photos from 2016 has simply been overwhelming!! So many moments - fun, serious, emotional, unexpected - the list goes on. The year started with winter weddings and freezing temperatures and ended like that as well. There is so much to share and not enough space, so I'm going to dive right into it.
My year started off photographing a winter wedding at Meyer's Castle with an indoor ceremony. However, I had to venture outside with Lisa and Mandeep for a few shots. Our next stop was in Crown Point with the winter wedding of Marissa and Dennis.
Spring weddings in Northwest Indiana can vary from 75 degree days to snow. Our April wedding saw all 4 seasons in a span of 8 hours!!
Late Spring saw stops at Notre Dame Basilica as well slightly warming temperatures. From Harley Davidson boots for the bride to a groom getting serenaded at church - the 2016 wedding fun was just beginning.
June is traditionally a busy month for weddings in Northwest Indiana as the temperatures tend to settle in, although it can get quite warm. June weddings in 2016 saw more Harley Davidson motorcycles along with stops at County Line Orchard, The Patrician as well as a church wedding at St. Michael's Parish in Schererville.
I was very proud to capture the new Mrs. and Mrs. Wendy and Kelly at Lighthouse Restaurant in June 2016. We had a blast covering their big day and I'm so glad mother nature gave us a nice sunset overlooking the pier.
June continued on with many stops at the beach and an epic Chicago church wedding with a reception at The Halls of St. George.
July saw stops at Sand Creek Country Club for Kelly and John's big day as well as a Catholic wedding ceremony at St, Kasmir Church in Hammond. We stopped by Centennial Park a few times as well.
August saw another stop at County Line Orchard along with The Pavilion at Sandy Pines. Lets open the balcony door and take a look...
September and October have increasingly become the busiest times of the year. The 2016 Fall wedding season was exactly that!! We started things off on Labor Day weekend at White Hawk Country Club in Crown Point with the outdoor golf course wedding of Amanda and Zach and then it was onto The Allure in Laporte, Indiana where BB8 delivered the wedding ring.
The second half of September saw us at barn weddings, riding tractors and exploring some nearby forests.
October 2016 was one of the busiest with outdoor weddings at Briar Ridge and church weddings and receptions back at Lighthouse Restaurant and elsewhere.
One theme of the Fall weddings here in Northwest Indiana and the surrounding Chicago area in 2016 was the Chicago Cubs playoff games and of course, World Series win!! Almost all of the receptions had updates. As we made our way into November, fall color was at it's peak.
December 2016 saw the train roll in for some winter weddings in Crown Point as well as Aberdeen Manor in Valparaiso. Warm hearts melted the falling snow...
