Devin & Alexa’s wedding weekend continued on Saturday morning in matching his and hers club suites at Mirbeau. The rooms provided plenty of space for people to spread out and get gussied up 🙂
A flower from her Mother’s veil was sewn inside Alexa’s dress and the final button on the end of her dress was from her Grandmother’s gown – so special and unique.
12 girls + 2 moms + a great hair and makeup team + 2 photographers + 1 videographer = a full room 🙂
The guys meanwhile relaxed on the patio of the restaurant overlooking the beautiful gardens.
I borrowed Eileen’s Macro lens for this shot on a hosta!
Devin’s Dad and Brother cross the bridge and Devin’s groomsmen wore his robe around all day insisting that he could because it was a spa….he was right 🙂
A little re-stocking while getting ready 🙂
While Alexa was finishing up with her makeup I photographed the groomsmen – I loved the trees.
Let’s get this show on the road!
Heading off to do pictures of the ladies!
Love the scope of this one.
Of course we had to do one on the bridge!
Trolleys arrived to whisk us to the church!
The flowers were so simple and subtle next to the pop of the girl’s dresses
Love this moment 🙂
Note to couples who are lighting a unity candle – follow Devin & Alexa’s lead and go around to the other side of the altar so we aren’t looking at your backs!
Devin is Irish so as a surprise Alexa organized a bagpiper to lead them out of the church – so cool.
We stopped at Mirbeau for some couple’s portraits – I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to photograph in the garden!
And with time to spare we made it over to the Country Club to finish up bridal party portraits and do some family pictures.
The details were lovely and elegant.
Devin & Alexa found me through the wonderful Ali! Her main squeeze Jonathan is Ben’s older Brother!
The silhouette of Alexa’s dress was stunning when it was bustled
All together now!
Love these two as Devin & Alexa head into dinner.
Devin had a huge Notre Dame contingent at the wedding (many lacrosse teammates) so it was only appropriate that the groom’s cake paid homage to his alma mater!
Between the first dance and the parent dances people had fun on the dance floor….a mere taste of what was to come!
Love this one.
Let’s get this party started!
This was a first – put a champagne bottle in the middle of the floor and dance around it – trying to outdo the last person…made for some wonderful shots 🙂
Very impressive 🙂
Bridal pushups and some air guitar – a VERY fun wedding 🙂
General happiness and rowdiness 🙂
Congratulations to both of you!!
