Mindi and Mark’s Wedding Day / Nazareth Hall Wedding Photographer

Man, I’m getting behind in my blogging again.  So much shooting, so little time.

This wedding day was damp, but still beautiful.  The gymnasium and Nazareth Hall Grand Rapids OhioNazareth Hall in Grand Rapids Ohio sits on many acres of old trees and rolling hills.  The landscape is really beautiful, and so well established that it really lends to the historical feel of the venue.  In fact it is an old military school, with locker lined hallways, and big class rooms, along with restored dining halls and a refurbished gymnasium that now act as reception areas.  Of course we had hoped to use this landscape as a backdrop, but just before the wedding ceremony began, it was moved from the grotto to the lovely little chapel upstairs due to the pouring rain that had threatened to fall all day.Nazareth hall table setting

Mindi had planned this entire wedding from Tulsa Oklahoma where Mark and she live and work.Bridal portrait at Nazareth Hall  From the home-made cookies as favors, and the colorful candy bar for the guests, the entire event meant fun and family.  The dance floor stayed full, and the smiles were stuck hard and fast on everyone’s faces all night.  The joy and mirth could not be drowned out by the downpour.Bridal portrait outside the front doors of Nazareth Hall
