Kate is one in a million… absolutely one of the most genuine/sweetest women I’ve ever ever met… I 100% adore her, BFF style 🙂 So here it is Kate… your wedding day! 😀
Kate, your hair is absolutely gorgeous!
These were taken in Northern Indiana… on a freakishly cold/dreary/rainy October day… as in… FREEEEZING… I told the girls to bundle up tiiiiight 😉 Let me just say, not for one milisecond did Kate complain about ANYthing! Most brides would be totally bummed about the weather… not Kate… nothing could have broken her smile that day.
Hello Derek Jeter. 🙂
Right before Kate walked down the aisle… her dad decided to check her pulse 🙂 Brian, Kate’s dad, is one of my favorite dads I’ve met. He’s great fun… and love love LOVES his girls! 🙂
…Mike’s. He wins!
The photo two up from here (with the blue sky) was taken within 10 minutes of the photo below. HOW DOES THEY SKY DOOOO THAT?!
OHHHH HOW I LOVE THIS! Because it was so cold outside, we utilized this little train station waiting thing. I’m sure it has a better name than that.
In between the ceremony and reception, there was a lot of extra time… so, Kate and Eric hosted many of their friends and family at their house where they relaxed, watched football and drank beer. 🙂 In the midst of all of that, someone decided to play “Sink The Biz.” If you’re an IU alum… you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about, right?! For those who aren’t… I’ll explain 🙂
The game requires at least a bucket, a floatable glass, at least three players and beer. The bucket is filled with a pitcher of beer and a glass is placed in that beer. Each person has a beer, which they pour into the floating glass until it sinks. A good, proper pour requires a steady hand, which doesn’t last long as each person becomes more and more intoxicated. 🙂 The one who sinks the glass must remove the glass from the bucket and drink the beer in it. BADABOOM BADABING!
Such a fun reception!!!
The night was done… our gear was put away, we were saying goodbyes… when we heard grunting. HUH?! We glanced back and saw THIS! A pushup competition! Strike that… a pushup competition while intoxicated. So yes yes yes… Mike unpacked a camera nd took a photo… how could we resist?! Oh, and for those paying attention… yes, that’s Erik 😀

Where did you go on your honeymoon?
Aruba…it was perfect!
ANNNNND… me with my brides 😀 Well, kinda 😀 Kristin, on the right, was the first to get married and wanted us to be her photographer…. but, we were already booked 🙁 She has been in all of these girls weddings and when we’d take the official “Bobbi bride” photo at the end of the night… it just never felt right leaving Kristin out.. but a technicality is a technicality! 😉 However, after much consideration… I made an exception! From left to right, Angie, Nicole, hot tamale, Kate and introducing the ONE & ONLY honorary Bobbi bride… Kristin!
Nicole and Kristin are sisters… actually, they’re triplets… how cool is that?! Anyway… towards the end of the night they realized that this was our last hoorah… as the group is now all officially married. So, they came up with a GENIUS idea! To befriend our brides and be their bridesmaids 😀 GENIUS! 😀 OHHHH how I love you two! I can 100% back them up… there are few bridesmaids who are as amazing at BEING a bridesmaid. So, future Bobbi brides… NEED BRIDESMAIDS?! 😀
Thanks for everything Kate & Eric… 😀 😀 😀

Yes, sometimes I look like a mean pirate standing on the deck who’s just spotted a treasure chest… but only sometimes. PS. I swear I’m not this mean… it just appears so in this photo 🙂
See these skills?! I had to get as low as I could to take the blue sky photo as there were lots of houses behind them… so, to crop them out, I had to go lowwwwww. My butt never touched the wet ground. That’s two years of working out betties…. BOOOYAH! 😉
❗ + ❓
awesome…I’m liking the recent shots with the skies and I’m loving that shot you pointed out from Mike’s view LOVe her dress was perfectly blowing in the wind! WIN!
Oooh..was this the first weekend of October? That WAS shiteous weather outside! Glad to hear you had a b&g who made the most of it though!!!
Fun group — sorry this wedding had to be the series finale 😉
PS – You ARE a hot tamale friend!
I can’t wipe the smile off of my face looking at these. That was such a fun reception!! Kate, you look beautiful!!

Everyone kept saying how lucky we were to have such good photographers as friends 🙂 Thank you both for being such a big part of our day. We love you both so very much and no worries we decided the ride isn’t over yet…We are going to start renewing our vows…Kristin is up first!
Ps. Very much my idea to play Sink the Biz! Mike did spill though 😉
I don’t know, I think your view was my favorite! They are all great though.
Haha! Awesome! Whenever you guys shoot weddings with a large amount of bridesmaids/groomsmen I always try to memorize what you do with them. (Thanks!) PS: To the 16th picture down from the top of kate & eric dancing, check it out: http://theadventuresofheidiandkevin.com/blog/?p=913 🙂
Kate – I almost forgot about the whole renewing our vows so we can wear our wedding dresses again and use Bobbi+Mike! We better start setting those dates ;] Maybe we can all have showers again to get more new stuff…haha J/K!
AHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love them!!!!! Too many favorites to pick from! Love the second pic of Kate and the pic of Kate laughing with Eric in the train station waiting thing! Bobbi – SO HAPPY TO BE AN HONORARY BOBBI BRIDE!!! Also, I totally hope you are not overwhelmed with responses to the bridesmaid thing – HAHA!!
Bobbi you are totally right, Kate is one of the best people around!! 🙂 These pictures are amazing! KTJ you are a STUNNER!!!! Breaks my heart still that I couldn’t be there, but thanks to b+m I get a glimpse of that day!!!
BEAUTIFUL photos of my BEAUTIFUL friends!!! What could possibly be better?!?
Throw in some VA-VOOM lashes, IU love, Bobbi Brides and my husband losing at a push-up contest, and this post is OVER THE TOP! 😉
You guys captured the day fabulously (as always)! So many awesome photos– don’t know if I can even pick a fave, but I do really heart the color photo in the waiting station, because, well, it’s just so Kate. 🙂 Loving that blue sky shot too.
So glad you guys could be there to capture such an amazing day and a beyond awesome couple!
Kate, you are incredibly stunning! And tell Derek Jeter he’s not so bad himself 😉
Already looking forward to a Bobbi Bride reunion! Glad that Kristin is “official” now, but also stoked that Bobbi, you are an official honorary 231 member! That’s big time!
Love you guys!
Looks like such a fun day! I love the navy and fall colors!
Amazing photos! As always:)
beautiful as always, and i am not an IU alum and I LOVE sink the biz! maybe i will buy one and bring it down here with me!
Kate, you looked absolutely beautiful! I hope your day was wonderful!
kate+eric, you guys were troopers. found out the windchill was f***** 33 while we were shooting when I checked the weather records later. thanks for having a good time and sucking it up!
I knew it was cold, but didn’t know it was that cold…next time we should drink first then take the pictures! All of the pictures look great, my favorite though is us laughing in the train station. Thanks for coming and being part of our day.
Amazing as always! The pushup competition is hilarious! I wonder what started it?
get low low low! awesome job!

Absolutely fabulous! Kate told me the pictures were up during work. I spent the rest of the afternoon just looking at one and then another….every new class of kids that came in got to see the pictures of my daughter Kate and new son-in-law (Derek)Eric. I simply love the black and white train depot one and Colleen lacing up Kate’s dress and of course Dad and Kate and….oh well I love them all. Can’t wait to see the rest.
Bobbi and Mike you both were just amazing. I have had calls from relatives and friends saying how much they loved the photographers. You made a spectactular wedding even better. We can’t thank you enough 🙂
What a hot couple!! It was a fun day! I love the ones at that train station. And yeah the Va-Voom lashes definately show in the pics…love it! Kate and Eric are a fabulous couple and it really shows in the pics! Love them!
Love the dad checking her pulse. And that looks like a fun bunch of bridesmaids.
The pic of dad taking her pulse cracks me up! And way to go low, Bobbi!! Great pics and looks like a great time was had by all.
