Kristen and Patrick’s December wedding took place at The Uptown Center in Michigan City, Indiana. It’s an incredible wedding venue with it’s large performing stage and multi colored “pipe organ” backdrop. It also has a two room bridal suite in it’s loft and this is where I met up with Kristen and her bridesmaids to capture details as well as some fun and tender moments during the getting ready portion of the day. The wedding dress arrived via delivery from Paris House of Bridal.
Second photographer Jaime was with the guys in their suite capturing the camaraderie and details. Then it was time for the two first looks - with Dad and then Patrick.
We had two first looks before the wedding party and family pictures. First up was Dad in the venue lobby and then the dramatic reveal with Patrick on the main stage.
After family photos it was time for the ceremony to begin. It was a warm day for December, but rain was on and off. The great thing about Uptown Center is it’s a big place with lots of charm and terrific for pictures.
Kristen entered on the arms of her Dad and after the sand ceremony, her and Patrick sealed it with a kiss. Then it was cocktail hour and dance floor time.
It was great to work once again with 27 Entertainment who took on DJ and videographer duties. The flowers from Lansing Floral were exquisite as was the cake from Val’s Custom Cakes in Chesterton.
