Oliver Mansion South Bend

Sam met Sarah at Ball State University. They were at a call-out meeting for their extracurricular program in the beginning of the 2012 Fall semester. They hit it off right away, and they realized they lived in the same Dorm and Hall as they walked back from their meeting—it’s like it was truly meant to be! Only one floor apart, they spent countless hours together during their college years and that special bond shone through on their wedding day as all their friends and family members gathered around to celebrate their beautiful joining.

Sarah admitted their special day exceeded all of their expectations. She said her friends and family were phenomenal and truly did everything they could to make sure it was perfect from start to finish. Of course, her favorite part was tying the knot with Sam, but she said every other aspect meant a lot to her as well.

She tried on six dresses before deciding on her gown, turning down ones that were too poufy, too heavy, or simply not fitting to her personality. She said she knew she had found the right dress when she slipped into her chosen gown because it fit perfectly and just felt right. For the wedding, they decided on navy blue and blush pink because it had a romantic contrast. The bride put it perfectly when she said, “They compliment each other so well, very much like Sam and I.”

From the very beginning, they both knew they wanted to be married outdoors. They selected the Oliver Mansion in South Bend Indiana. It’s a historic location that was built in 1897. She said they actually took a little while to settle on the History Museum gardens when comparing all the potential venues online, but once they saw it, her heart was set on it. They ended up taking full advantage of the open space and the candle lighting was absolutely stunning.

The wedding ended up being a fun yet elegant gathering of their closet friends. It was a classy event, but everyone truly had a fantastic time rejoicing in the day’s festivities. Looking back, Sarah and Sam said there’s absolutely nothing they would change about their perfect day.
