Theresa + Gean: Wedding Day

I am so excited to finally be able to share Theresa & Gean’s wedding day with you. I couldn’t imagine a better start to my 2021 wedding season or imagine a more deserving couple for such a beautiful day. I first met Theresa last year when I made the trip up to Carmel, Indiana for her sister’s wedding and I absolutely fell in love with their family. When Theresa reached out and asked me to photograph her wedding as well, I was over the moon. Since Gean has been living in Brazil, he and Theresa have been doing long distance for the past few years and have constantly run into issues with wedding planning (thanks, COVID!) They've been engaged since 2019 and were finally able to come together as one a few weeks ago!!

Bride and groom stand together in front of a row of evergreen trees as they hold the bride's bouquet of pink flowers and smile at the camera in Carmel, Indiana.

I started the day off by making the trip from Cincinnati to Carmel and the perfect weather let me know that it was going to be an incredible day. Theresa and her bridesmaids were laughing while getting ready while Gean and his groomsmen were hanging out and playing cards in the basement below them. There was plenty of food to go around and it was so nice for each side of the wedding party to have their own space to spend the morning relaxing! Theresa had the cutest set of white heels and wore jewelry passed down throughout the years from her family. Her dress looked as if it was absolutely made for her to wear and she and her bridesmaids spent the day before organizing and putting together all of their own bouquets (how special! Plus, those COLORS?! My heart!) The Spech’s family dog, Gracie, wondered throughout the house happily greeting whoever looked her way. After Theresa’s mom and grandma helped her get into her dress and add her final accessories, we were on our way to the church!

Our Lady of Mt Carmel Church is so incredibly beautiful and I always love the photos I’m able to take there. Gean had the absolute SWEETEST reaction to seeing Theresa walk down the aisle towards him (I melted!) and the two of them together were just bubbling with happiness. After the ceremony they had a bubble send off while exiting the church before greeting their guests. This was such a fun touch and I love how these photos turned out. Gean and Theresa both look so happy and I love that you could also see the joy on all of their family & friend’s faces as well. After the bubble exit we headed back into the church to take a few family photos!
