Palais Royale Wedding in South Bend with Abby and Vincent

The morning of Abby & Vincent’s wedding we started off at Bangs Salon in South Bend Indiana. While all the girls were getting “beautified” for the day, I got the chance to walk around and capture candid moments of the morning.

Once the girls were finished with their hair & makeup it was time to head to Sunnyside Presbyterian Church to prep for the wedding ceremony. All the girls went downstairs to do some finishing touches and get their dresses on. As the girls were finishing up and getting ready, Vincent and his groomsmen arrived and patiently waited till it was time for the ceremony.

With the ceremony finished along with the formal photos it was time for this bride & groom to get their party-freaking-started! Of course this calls for some bottle popping, a few drinks, a kickass limo with one badass playlist. Onward to the beautiful wedding reception at the Palais Royale!

As everyone exited the limo and we waved goodbye to the driver, and made our way towards some portraits! We walked around Downtown South Bend Indiana for a little bit and made our way to the fountain in front of the Morris Performing Art Center.

Walking into the Palais Royale everyone in the group started to venture to get ready for their grand entrance. All the guests were seated and ready. It started with the bridal party busting through the main door and to the head table each adding their own flavor for their entrance.

With all of the bridesmaids and groomsmen having finished their entrance it was time for Abby & Vincent’s. Up top from the balcony the two newly weds greeted their guests with quite the elegant waves and received an elated¬† reaction from their friends and families.

Ask any bride and groom and they’ll tell you the reception seems to happen so quick. Dinner, speeches, cake cutting, first dances, in almost the blink of an eye these fun and wonderful events come and go. Once in a lifetime event, and it feels like minutes when it’s all over.

It’s one of the reasons I love being a wedding photographer. To capture the memories of the entire day for amazing people like Abby & Vincent.
