Mark and Cece’s Morris Park Country Club wedding in South Bend, Indiana was beautiful! We had the most STUNNING day in mid-April despite being in Northern Indiana where the weather is extremely unpredictable!

From day one, the Nyers and Williams families made me feel like I was one of their own. I worked closely with the Nyers family throughout the wedding planning process, and I felt like I really got to know them!

Getting Ready For The Williams Wedding

Both Cece and Mark got ready separately at Morris Park Country Club. Cece and Mark first met each other though Cece’s brother, Mitch. Mark and Mitch became best friends while in college and the rest was history!

Cece shared a sweet first look with her father and her bridesmaids. She then shared a first look with her brother Mitch where she “iced” him! Needless to say, he was not expecting it!

Private Vows Outside of Morris Park Country Club

After the two got ready, we then made our way outside of Morris Park Country Club. Mark and Cece chose to save their first looks for the aisle, but exchanged private and heartfelt vows with one another before their ceremony.

A Beautiful Catholic Wedding Ceremony at St. Pius X Catholic Church

Mark and Cece’s Catholic wedding ceremony at St. Pius X Catholic Church in Granger, Indiana was beautiful. As a Catholic myself, it’s always such an honor to capture Catholic wedding ceremonies. Mark and Cece had a bubble ceremony exit which was so fun!

One thing I loved was that Cece’s parents surprised them by renting a 1940’s original Studebaker for their transportation to the reception! It of course made for the best backdrop for some of their portraits, too!

Cece & Mark’s Morris Park Country Club Wedding Portraits

After making our way back to Morris Park Country Club, we got a few more portraits with the Studebaker and then out to the golf course at the club. It really provided the most stunning backdrop for their portraits with the lush green lawn and sun peeking behind the trees!

We then got portraits of the full wedding party as well as Cece and her bridesmaids and Mark and his groomsmen. Their color scheme was perfect for a spring wedding day with the soft mint green and bouquets with a mix of soft pink and white florals! I also loved the fun photos of Mark and his groomsmen doing a beer run towards the end!

An Indoor Morris Park Country Club Wedding Reception in South Bend

Cece and Mark did a reception reveal and their setup was gorgeous! The decor felt elegant and romantic, and I loved how spacious the country club reception space was. During the reception, Cece dedicated her bouquet and a smaller bouquet to her mom and Mark’s mom. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room!

Cece and her dad, Tony choreographed part of their dance together. It was so much fun to watch and capture! Their reception was so fun and we ended the night with a mock send-off with the family and wedding party.

Overall this was such a beautiful South Bend, Indiana wedding, and I’m so honored to have been a part of Mark and Cece’s big day!
