I would describe Brie and Ryan’s wedding day as picturesque, complete with a small town trolley as transportation. The day started at the bride’s parent’s house where hair and make up crew Brook’s Beauties and Make Up by Riem had transformed the kitchen into a salon. The beautiful dress came courtesy of Paris House of Bridal and video of the day by Elegante Media.
One of the items on my list to capture for the day was the bridesmaids decorating Polly the Trolley who would be transporting the wedding party to St. Michael’s Parish and again to Sand Creek Country Club. The groomsmen were already waiting after second photographer Kerrie captured their prep at a nearby hotel.
Soon after the trolley arrived at church, the ceremony began with Dad walking Brie down the aisle and sister Alyce escorting the couple into the sanctuary of St. Michael’s Parish.
We strolled the grounds of Sand Creek Golf Course in Chesterton, Indiana until it was time for the reception to begin. We visited the covered bridge deep inside the course as well as the famed weeping willow tree near the lake.
All this wedding stuff can get exhausting you know, so sometimes a nap for the wedding party is in order. Gotta save up that energy for the dance floor!!
While I finished up bride and groom photos, second photographer Kerrie covered cocktail hour where guests mingled on the deck balcony that overlooks the beautiful course at Sand Creek Country Club. Soon it would be time for introductions, surprise visits, cake cutting and dancing with a soundtrack courtesy of 27 Entertainment. Cake was by Beck’s Crown Bakery in Crown Point.
