Mandy + Zack
The Avalon | Merrillville, Indiana
We have really loved getting to know Mandy and Zack. We first met them at their engagement session in New Buffalo and it was so easy to get them to pose and act natural in front of the camera. They were definitely just focused on one another and the things we were asking of them. Which made for a perfect session.
Zack knows exactly what to say to get Mandy to genuinely laugh, which really makes my job so easy. And the wedding day was the exact same.
Mandy’s sweet family surprised her by buying a tux for her pup, Mickey, and it was certainly one of the highlights of the day.
I loved everything about Mandy’s look for her big day. She really made such a stunning bride! Sta-Glam and Under the Veil really perfected the vision that Mandy had for her day.
Mandy and Zack married at the Avalon and beside them stood a really wonderful group of ladies and men. They were surrounded by so many people who loved them and were just as excited for them as they were.
Leading up to their wedding, it was calling for rain and thunderstorms all day. But as the morning came and the day continued, the rain kept showing it was going to be pushed back until it was completely off the radar. (This literally never happens and it happened both Saturday and Sunday for me that weekend) It ended up being a beautiful day.
Zack probably gave the greatest garter toss dance and after it Kris even said “I want to be his best friend” LOL! Like I said, he knows exactly what to do to make Mandy genuinely laugh (as well as pretty much everyone else)
Mr and Mrs Hansbury, we are so happy for you and wish you the absolute best. Enjoy so many of our favorites as you wait for your remaining images!
