{05.31.2008} Congratulations Chris & Claire!

Saturday was spent in the beautiful town of New Buffalo just north of the Michigan/Indiana boarder with the reception in Michigan City, IN. Locations fabulous!

Chris and Claire are both from Washington D.C. with many family and friends in Chicago. New Buffalo is the perfect beach town to celebrate in, and frequently vacationed for Chicago folks. The ceremony took place at St. Mary of the Lake Parish with the reception at Barker Hall in Michigan City.

The image below is a classic with the Claire's family. A picture of an exhausted Father of the Bride. I LOVE IT!
We did a bit of trespassing at a local private beach... Can you believe people were already swimming? CRAZY!

This is my buddy, Max. He had a big day with two jobs. Max was not only a ring bearer, but he was also my unofficial assistant for the day. He did a great job with both jobs!

And how fabulous is this? Not only was Chris and Claire's first dance amazing, but isn't their band and backdrop spectacular? Ideas ladies!!!!

Amazing day, amazing couple, amazing family and friends....oh, and I also need to mention that their family and friends had the most amazing shoes I have ever seen! Total shoe envy going on here. For more information on their vendors click HERE for Stella Event Design. Jessica has all the details! And she's fabulous to work with!

Thank you for making me and Sasha such a huge part of your day! Have a wonderful time in Hawaii!

Aloha from Waikiki! Just getting to see these- so pretty. Also, yes the band- "Me and the boys"- is AWESOME. I had over 150 guests from all over the country and at least 90 of them told me it was the best wedding they could remember- the food, the band, the check out my awesome vendors, the church musicians, the band and Great Lakes Catering. Very excited to see the rest of the photos- these are great! -Claire and Chris
