KRISTIN & TOM / THE BRICK SOUTH BEND

I was sitting at my best friend's house in Indiana around the campfire this past summer when her friend (also named Lauren!) shows up and announces that her brother got engaged. She tells us that they already booked their venue for New Years Day and she's helping them find a wedding photographer. I mean that's a little bit of fate right there. I gave her my info and not shortly after, Kristin & Tom reached out to me. These two are such a sweet pair and I am so glad I was at that campfire that night so inevitably I could be a part of their day.

The ceremony and reception were held in a renovated warehouse in South Bend called, The Brick, and everything was so beautiful. Kristin's family is from the Bahamas, and many of her relatives came in for the celebration. Much of the night they played what I'm assuming was Bahamian music and let me tell you, I have never seen so many people of every age tear up the dance floor. It was so much fun. The night ended with a sparkler send off for the bride and groom, and many well wishes for their new journey together. Truly the best way to ring in the new year.
