Bradley and Mayely’s South Bend, Indiana wedding was the perfect fall wedding celebration and one I can’t wait to share! It was such an honor to capture this wedding day. I went to college with Bradley, so it was so great to catch up with him and Mayely and have the opportunity to not only photograph their South Bend wedding, but their proposal and even two engagement sessions as well!

Bradley & Mayely’s Catholic South Bend, Indiana Wedding

The day started out with Mayely and Bradley getting ready separately. They both had large bridal parties which made the day so fun! There was a little bit of morning rain for good luck which turned into a beautiful fall day here in South Bend. Both Mayely and Bradley did a first look and “iced” each others wedding parties in hopes to get rid of any wedding day jitters!

The two also shared an emotional first touch and personal vows to each other in front of their family and wedding party prior to the ceremony. It was such a heartwarming moment shared between them and those closest to them.

Mayely and Bradley had the most beautiful bilingual Catholic wedding mass at Holy Family Catholic Church. I loved how they integrated Mexican wedding traditions throughout such as the lasso. After the ceremony we all headed over to St. Hedwig Memorial Center for their South Bend, Indiana wedding reception. It was perfect and the dance floor was packed all night long, and Mayely and Bradley had the best time celebrating with their closest friends and family!

Kind words from Mayely & Bradley:

“Riley has been on our journey since the start of our engagement. She has done the actual engagement, both engagement shoots and the big day. She has gone above and beyond to make sure that she captures the best photos and she sure does. We received our wedding photos back and looking through them brought back all of the emotions and feelings that I felt on that day. I didn’t know that a photo was capable of doing that, but Riley did it! Her photos are absolutely stunning and there has never been one that I disliked. She is friendly and kind and so easy to work with. We will never use another photographer other than Riley! I could not recommend her enough! Thank you Riley for capturing the best day of my life in the most beautiful way possible!” – Mayely

“Riley was amazing through engagement photos to our wedding day photos. She made our day absolutely perfect! My wife and I couldn’t be happier and will continue to use her for family photos and recommend her to anyone looking for a fantastic photographer in the future. Riley, from bottom of our hearts, thank you for being the best in the industry! Mayely and I consider you as family and we really appreciate all your hard work and caring heart!” – Bradley
