Lauren and Mark had their wedding ceremony and reception on a beautiful fall day in the Radisson Hotel at Star Plaza located in Merrillville, Indiana. We captured all of the fun preparations as well as the first meeting with the bride and groom. Then, it was time for bridal party photos with photographer Mark Amelse.

The church featured gorgeous decor by House of Fabian, and there was lovely music throughout the wedding ceremony. Mark’s passion for fishing was apparent everywhere – in the fishing rods carried by the ringbearers, the groom’s cake, and in the note he wrote to Lauren calling her his “greatest catch.”

Consultant Jen Barnette of Four Leaf Events made sure the event went smoothly and even provided stunning purple uplighting for both the ceremony and the reception.

Congratulations Lauren and Mark!
