Lindsay + Derek | South Bend, IN | July 11, 2015

Lindsay and Derek envisioned their mid summer wedding to be full of beautiful as well as meaningful details. Working with a color palette of soft sage green, white and silver, accented with the barest whisper of blush pink helped to set the tone for their black tie affair. While the skies were threatening as guests gathered for their outdoor ceremony, the mood was joyful in anticipation of the joining of not only Lindsay and Derek, but their families as well. Post ceremony, the couple along with their bridal party traveled to the campus of the University of Notre Dame. There they were granted access to the iconic Notre Dame football locker room, and stadium as well.  The reception held several surprises for the groom, a Notre Dame football themed grooms cake, along with a rousing performance of irish and celtic music played by the Caledonia Kilty Pipe Band.  Dancing, laughter and love filled the night, as Lindsay and Derek were celebrated as the new Mr. & Mrs.

Kathleen + Ben | Notre Dame | Wedding

The campus of the University of Notre Dame was ablaze with glorious fall foliage on Kathleen and Ben’s wedding day. Leaves rustled and swirled on the ground as guests gathered at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart to witness the exchange of vows between the two. Evoking the rich tones of the season, Kathleen chose emerald green along with raspberry and gold as the color palette for the wedding.  While Kathleen attended Saint Mary’s College, and Ben attended Notre Dame, they both played in the Band of the Fighting Irish. Dating back to 1845, the Notre Dame Marching Band is the oldest college band in continuous existence in the United States.  Both are proud former members and part of the legacy of this prestigious college band. Kathleen played the piccolo, and Ben was a member of the trumpet section. During their reception, colleagues of theirs who were members of the trumpet section gathered to play Notre Dame Our Mother and the Notre Dame Victory March, just as they had done for every home football game, inside the famed Golden Dome otherwise known as Trumpets Under the Dome. Another highlight came when Kathleen’s parents, presented the couple with a Papal Blessing from Pope Francis.

Elizabeth & Daniel | Notre Dame, IN

Elizabeth and Daniel envisioned their June wedding at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, on the campus of the University of Notre Dame as a soft, romantic summer affair.  The color palette they chose. blush pink, soft gold and ivory was the perfect combination of colors to achieve the feel they wanted. Elizabeth’s favorite flower, the rose, was used throughout the wedding, in tones ranging from barely blush to a soft peachy pink, often accented with gorgeous peony (which lucky for us – was in full bloom!)  and hydrangea.  An array of candlelight helped give the atmosphere a dreamy, intimate feel.  As a nod to the groom’s roots and a beloved Youngstown, OH tradition, a cookie table offered guests sweets and treats, most of them baked and brought to the wedding by family and guests. The day was gorgeously sunny, followed by a warm and balmy summer evening, the sky filled with glittering stars.

ReenAnn & Michael | Notre Dame, IN

ReenAnn and Michael met and fell in love in Texas, got engaged in Ireland and married at Notre Dame. Guests came from near and far to witness their marriage, which took place in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, on the campus of the University of Notre Dame, where ReenAnn had attended college. Michael, a native of Canada and former professional hockey player was delighted to see the Canadian flag hanging in the Compton Ice Arena while on Notre Dame’s campus, and even more so upon learning they could host a welcome party for their guests there the evening before their wedding. ReenAnn wanted to work in tones of silver, platinum and pewter with accents of mercury glass along with a floral palette of white and ivory to evoke a simple, but sophisticated atmosphere for the wedding. Calla lilies, a favorite of ReenAnn’s were used through out the wedding, and to great dramatic effect at the reception where they were highlighted with pin lights. Even though it was unseasonably chilly on their October wedding day, everyone basked in the glow that shown from the newylweds.

Christine & JB | Notre Dame, Indiana

Marrying in November, JB and Christine were blessed to have a gorgeously sunny, warm day for their wedding at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. The trees on campus were ablaze in all their fall glory, the leaves on the ground rustling in the light wind as family and guests gathered for their ceremony. Guests were given Kleenex packets labeled ‘There is no crying in baseball’ as they entered the Basilica, as a nod to the groom, a professional major league baseball player. Christine chose to have her bridesmaids in a deep ruby color with everything else to in tones of ivory, white, gold and champagne – and pearls, lots and lots of pearls.
