I simply love outdoor weddings. The forecast had been calling for rain that day, but as we set out for South Bend the skies were clear and the sun was shining. Just before the ceremony began it looked like it could rain. The bride and her family decided that they were going for it! Luckily, the lovely people of Carriage House had the indoor area completely setup for the ceremony as a backup just in case it rained which gave them the freedom to wait just before the ceremony to decide if they were going to stick with the outdoor nuptials.
Erin & Justin's garden ceremony was an intimate and gorgeous affair. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails and wood fired pizza straight from the outdoor brick oven. They were then lead into a beautiful tent filled with stunning arrangements created by Polly Mccarthy. I loved that there were trees inside the tent! Adorable rosemary trees framed the walkways to the entrance and greeted guests with their wonderful aroma. All the details made for such a lovely wedding unique to Erin & Justin. We have had an amazing time getting to know them! Congratulations to you both!
