Wedding Photography at the Purdue Memorial Union – Lafayette, Indiana
Post by Cathy.
Their high-pitched laughter was echoing down the hallway and I knew which hotel room it was before even glancing at the numbers. Inside, Nicole was sitting with her sister and closest friends, laughing, sipping champagne, and remembering their days together in high school and college. Boys they had dated for far too long, that girl they knew in track and field, that teacher everyone hated. “Can’t we just stay in here and drink and eat and talk all day?” one of the girls laughed.
But today Nicole was getting married. I could see that she was nervous, but only a little. When the laughter and talking would die down, when the girls were in the bathroom with their makeup or somewhere down the hall, Nicole’s face relaxed and she looked down to turn her diamond ring in place. I could tell she was ready. Today was her day, and it was going to be perfect!
And it was. 🙂 Nicole’s dress was flawless and looked amazing on her as she stood alone waiting for Adron to come up and meet his soon-to-be-bride. Since their formal wedding photography was going to be taken before the ceremony (which I highly recommend!), Nicole and Adron had a quiet moment alone to see each other and prepare themselves for the most important day of their relationship. After exchanging cards and kisses, the two took a deep breath and headed downstairs to meet the bridal party for some rockin’ pictures before heading over the river to the amazingly beautiful Cathedral of St. Mary.
After Nicole & Adron said their vows and ducked into their limousine, we all made our way to their wedding reception at thein West Lafayette, where everyone partied hard until late into the night. The first of the two major highlights of the evening had to be Adron’s retrieval of Nicole’s garter belt, for which his loyal groomsmen attached themselves to him with a rope and donned hard hats as he braved the cave of Nicole’s dress (possibly the funniest thing I have EVER witnessed at a reception!). And the second was Nicole’s aunt Bridget’s hilarious rendition of “Baby Got Back” to which everyone joined in and sang at the top of their lungs. Needless to say, the party was a total blast! Definitely one of our favorites to date! 🙂
Congratulations, you two! We hope you have a fun and relaxing time on your honeymoon! 🙂

David loves the kid in front doing a silly walk. 😀
By far the biggest bridal party we’ve ever shot.
David couldn’t stop talking about how pretty this church was.
Adron, getting ready to retrieve the garter!
“I like big butts!!” Quite possibly the funniest singing at a wedding we’ve seen so far.
