“I’ll be there for you…”
To say that we were destined to photograph Jackie and Paul’s wedding would be an understatement. Jackie and Paul met on match.com… so did we. They had sushi on their first date… so did we. They adore Friends (real life friends and the TV show) and… so do we! A long story short and it brought us to their gorgeous wedding at Allure on the Lake in Chesterton, IN.
Their wedding day was full of personal little details including an engraved padlock which has become tradition to lock and leave on the patio fence. Their lock is now placed with all the others who have come before them in a very special tradition.
Colors and Decor
Jackie chose the perfect venue for their wedding. Allure has a great subtle classic look that can be transformed and works with any color. The bridesmaids’ dresses and the flowers gave the perfect pop of color against the grey toned walls and floors of the venue.
Paul is quite talented! He made the altar used during the wedding. He also made the ring box, and many of the other decorations. Together they decorated everything the perfect amount.
A Personal Connection
We have a great personal connection to this family. Chris went to college with the Paul’s brother and sister-in-law and they have been friends for over 20 years. To say exactly how many would date us and we won’t go into those specifics. Paul also went to Purdue University and many of his fellow Boilermakers were at the wedding with them to celebrate.
At sunset we took them out for a few more photos by the pond and gazebo. The light was absolutely perfect and they had an amazing few minutes to themselves.
We are so excited for Jackie and Paul and we can tell that their love for each other, and their passion for Friends, will help them enjoy life together forever.
