Laura and Adam vowed to a life lived together surrounded by their closest family and friends. The wedding was held at Potawatomi Conservatories in South Bend, IN, where everywhere you looked there was beautiful and lush plants all around– the perfect setting for a winter wedding! They had a very small, intimate wedding which was nothing short of perfect. Covid has made me realize the beauty of these small and intimate weddings. It was relaxed and every person who attended knew the significance of what their attendance meant to Laura and Adam.
Laura and Adam met at a contra dance, a type of folk dance, at a local church. Laura noticed the cute guy who attended the dances and one day had the courage to add him as a friend on Facebook. Around the holidays, when it was clear she was not going to be able to make the trip to Texas to see family, she posted on Facebook that she was looking for things to do. To her delight, Adam responded to her post saying he was available. They started out as just friends, but it wasn’t long before things became more serious between them. They had barely a month and a half together before the pandemic struck. Though it was hard, it gave them a lot of time to bond and do things outside together with his 3 teenage daughters.
Their Potawatomi Conservatories wedding day was filled with beautiful red accents, violinists, contra dancing, and so much celebration! This wedding not only brought the two of them together, but it created a family. Their 3 daughters were a huge part of their wedding day, and it was such a beautiful thing to witness! It was honor to be able to be able to document this wonderful union! Congratulations to the new Mr + Mrs Polhemus!
Is she not the sweetest flower girl?!

So grateful to have gotten to know these two, and to document their wedding day!
