It’s hard to believe I’m sharing my final 2023 wedding! This year has flown by and I’m so grateful for everything it has held!
Colleen & Stephen were the perfect couple to end my 2023 wedding season and despite their mid-November wedding date, the trees were still full of gorgeous colors! These two met at Franciscan University and hit it off right away. Their instant chemistry quickly turned into deep love and they spent the next few years falling deeper in love with each other and stronger in their faith.
Early on in our communication with each other, Colleen and Stephen told me how important their Nuptial Mass was to them and how they wanted the overall focus of their wedding day to be on the reverence of the Mass and especially the importance of the Liturgy of Eucharist above all us. And my goodness, their Nuptial Mass was stunning! I’m pretty sure I captured some of my favorite Wedding Mass photos at their Mass. The incense, the light streaming through the stained glass windows, the bells, the music: it all pointed to the incredible beauty of the two sacraments taking place.
Colleen and Stephen, it has been a joy getting to know you both and an absolute honor to photograph your wedding!
A huge thank you to all the other vendors who came together to make this day possible!
