Niles, Michigan Wedding | South Bend, Indiana Reception
Tara and Josh Wedding in South Michigan
April 10, 2010 took me to Southern Michigan in the town of Niles for the Wedding of Tara and Josh. I had captured Tara’s sister’s Wedding and Tara told me that I had to photograph her Wedding. I was honored to be part of their Wedding day.My day began early in the morning after staying the night in Grand Rapids. This was my first time capturing images at Wesley United Methodist in Niles, Michigan www.wesleyumcniles.org 302 Cedar Street Niles, MI 49120-2612 (269) 683-7250
Wesley Methodist is a beautiful church with a short isle and an overhanging balcony that sits real close to where the bride and groom stand. It makes a nice shot from above. I would recommend this church to future brides. The officiant Edward is a hoot too. He is a parrothead and a lot of fun.
I scouted the surrounding area and found a nice island with huge old growth trees that were kind of knarly and fun. I figured that we could make one stop between the ceremony and reception.
We had about 1.5 hours to capture the bride and groom prior to the Wedding and only a short time between the ceremony and reception. I had to really have my ideas planned in advance and work though the images as quickly as possible.
Everything ran on time during the day and we really rocked it out. It was a fun Wedding party.
Prior to the ceremony I visited the Wedding reception location in South Bend, Indiana atWaterford Estates Lodge www.waterfordestateslodge.com 52890 Indiana State Route 933

This is a nice location for a Wedding reception with a large venue area. It is going through an ownership change right now but will have everything worked out soon.
