Palais Royale South Bend Wedding | Kyle and Ellen | South Bend Wedding Photographers

Jan 8, 2018

It doesn’t take long to realize that Kyle and Ellen are two very special people. Their natural charisma, talent, and love for their families and each other is so apparent. We loved everything about their St. Paul’s Methodist Church Wedding and Palais Royale Wedding Reception!

The Couple:

In Kyle’s Words:

We met the fall of our sophomore year at Notre Dame. Ellen had just aced an exam in our finance class, and I definitely had not. She had a stress fracture in her foot from running and had to take the elevator in the building, so I made up some lame excuse about my back hurting and took the elevator with her just to make small talk. I kept running into her over the course of the next couple of weeks (in other elevators) until finally I asked her for her number. A couple of weeks later we went on a date, and I asked her to be my girlfriend….to which she said no. I tried my luck again a couple of weeks after that, and seemingly my persistence paid off.

In Ellen’s Words:

Kyle and I met for the first time in an elevator leaving our finance class. It was just the two of us there, and I remember feeling the need to break up the awkward silence and ask him how his exam went (not well for those who were wondering). Soon after that, we ran into each other in the elevator in his dorm and another elevator in our class building. We exchanged numbers, went on a couple of dates mixed in with some ND tailgates and Halloween parties, and boom! here we are. Getting stuck in an elevator with the same person over and over will get you hooked apparently ­čśë

We have so many favorite images from their wedding. Here’s just a few ­čśë
