Claire and Colin are married! YAY! You may remember these two from their North Manchester, Indiana engagement. (You can view that HERE.) Claire and Colin both met in January 2017 while they were both at a Catholic retreat. Apparently, friends of Colin and Claire were planning on introducing these two at the retreat but they didn't need to because as soon as Colin laid eyes on Claire, he knew she was the one! He started talking to her and shortly after the retreat, they went on their first date and have been together ever since. Fast forward to August 2018 and Colin asked Claire for her hand in marriage while they were walking around North Manchester University's Peace Garden. She obviously said yes!
Claire and Colin tied the knot this Saturday and it was the perfect day! They had their ceremony at St. Pius X Church in Granger, Indiana. The Catholic Church plays a bit part in both their lives and relationship so the ceremony was a special aspect for them both. Their reception was held at Hedwig Memorial Center in South Bend, Indiana. One thing that made the reception location special is that a lot of Claire's family held weddings there! They served polish food and had lots of dancing. Their wedding was filled with lavender and silver accents and they were surrounded by all of their closest friends and family.
Enjoy a few of my favorite images from their big day below!
