Kailley & Nick's Bohemian Backyard Wedding
Who says you can't have it all? Nick's dream was to get married at his alma matre - Notre Dame. Kailley always envisioned her wedding as being held in her parents backyard. So what's the solution? Do both!
Kailley and Nick's wedding weekend kicked off with a ceremony at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart at Notre Dame. Day one of the weekend was captured by the absolutely amazing Mindy Joy Photography and can be seen on Mindy's blog here. You're going to want to check that out...I mean they stormed the football stadium....c'mon, you can't miss that.
I had the privilege of photographing day two - the backyard party at Kailley's childhood home in Belvidere. Although, calling this just a party is a little bit like calling Notre Dame Stadium a grassy field - it's a massive understatement. This was THE party. And it was fantastic from start to finish. Also, I may or may not have gained 3 pounds from this wedding.
Congrats Kailley & Nick. Here's a look back.
