Kevin and Rachel had a wonderful Spring wedding at The Allure in Laporte, Indiana. This grand old ballroom is well known for it's decorative floor and uplighting. When I arrived I immediately went up to the balcony for a photograph of the untouched, fully decorated reception hall.

The day began with some tender getting ready moments between our bride Rachel and her daughter Lindsay. The flower girl was a little bewildered by what was going on, let alone a photographer in the room. She clung to mom for awhile until finally seeing Dad, the groom, when she entered the ballroom of The Allure.
The Allure has a fantastic bridal room for the girls to get ready in. The natural light from the large windows can make for wonderful detail images of the wedding dress and more.
The indoor wedding ceremony took place in The Allure's downstairs facility where guests can mingle right after the ceremony while family photos are taken in the main ballroom. As Kevin became emotional while reading his vows to his new bride, I scanned the room to see parents and family having their own emotional moments.
While ceremony guests mingled and drank cocktails, I took the wedding party along with family to the grand ballroom of The Allure for photos. Finally, our flower girl Lindsay could be united with mom and dad again in a tender family moment.
During the reading of his vows, Kevin mentioned Rachel's great smile. He could not have been more correct as she flat out glowed for her wedding portraits on the Allure's ballroom stage.
The wedding reception had so many fun moments. From the speeches delivered by the wedding party to the first dance to the bouquet toss, a spectacularly fun time was had by everyone.
