Rich & Marissa | Westminster Presbyterian Church | Munster, Indiana

November 12, 2014

There was such a huge sense of excitement the minute I walked into the door of Marissa’s parents house!

Everyone was busy milling around the house with something to do and giant smiles on their faces.

When I got up to where she was getting her make-up done…Marissa was completely calm and cool.

Because what was there to be nervous about?

She was finally marrying the man whom her soul has loved for almost a decade!



The vows were written and all the little details of the day were in order!




Meanwhile, just five minutes away at his parents house, the guys were doing a little getting ready of their own!


And before we knew it, it was time to head to the church to get married!

I get the honor of experiencing and photographing the very first time a groom sees his bride.  This is a big deal!  This is the moment!

Well let me tell you that Rich’s reaction to when he first saw Marissa…will go down in my book as one of my most favorite!



And Marissa thought Rich looked pretty amazing too!


After a heartfelt ceremony and vows that had me tearing up…they were finally husband and wife!


Just after the deal was sealed with a kiss and they were introduced as Mr. & Mrs., the sun came out to join the party and the timing couldn’t have been any  more perfect!


Finally, they were off to celebrate with those that they love most!



Rich and Marissa, thank you SO much for choosing me to tell YOUR love story.  It’s a beautiful story in which I was honored to be able to share in and tell to others!

I hope you are getting a tan, eating great food and getting some much needed relaxation in Riviera Maya!
