Ashley and Terry had some outrageous Fall color at their recent wedding at Kreuger Memorial Hall in Michigan City. Even near the beach where the girls got ready, Autumn colors were definitely at their peek.
I knew that Ashley and her bridesmaids were getting ready at a beach house off of Lake Michigan, but it wasn’t until I got there that I saw what a cool idea this was. I loved the northern light coming into the loft where Ashley got into her dress and the whole place just said “relax, have fun”. A very cool vibe for sure.
The entire morning had a series of mini events such as a reading of the groom’s letter and a memento from grandma being given to the bride, to the reveal to the bridesmaids. The big finale was a first look with Dad and then off to the venue we went for the afternoon ceremony.
We had a very picturesque spot for Ashley’s first look with her Dad, but I was a bit concerned about the uneven terrain. He had been given orders to keep his eyes closed and even though I told him it was okay to open and see the back of her dress, he would not budge. It was eyes closed until he reached Ashley. All was good and it was a great moment and I’m happy to report that Dad did not go swimming in the creek!
While I did bridesmaid pictures, second photographer Kerrie was with Terry and the guys.
The ceremony took place inside Kreuger Memorial Hall with it’s dark wood and log cabin vibe. After the bride and groom’s exit into the sun, we went into the park for family pictures, wedding party pictures and the newlyweds as well.
We had toyed with the idea of going elsewhere in Michigan City for pictures, but Ashley was looking for Fall color, Fall leaves and tall trees and it was all right there staring down at us at Kreuger Memorial Park.
To change things up a bit, we took a short drive to downtown Michigan City for a bit of a different flavor for Ashley and Terry’s wedding pictures.
Back at Kreuger Memorial Hall the bride and groom had a private dinner while second photographer Kerrie captured the cocktail hour candids as vinyl albums were played. The wedding party were introduced “in the ‘round” and first dances as well as speeches were also done this way. The dance floor was completely full as Amplified Events filled the room with sound.
