Featured Notre Dame Wedding | Cynthia Basker Events

We are fortunate enough to be able to feature another fabulous wedding from wedding planner Cynthia Basker Events! Cynthia is in our opinion the top wedding planner for the Michiana, South Bend, Notre Dame area. Her weddings are always meticulously detailed, beautiful, well organized and raved about by the brides and grooms they are for. So we’d like to thank Cyndi for allowing us to feature the wedding of Laura & Bill on our wedding blog!


Laura and Bill envisioned their mid December wedding, at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart,  to be elegant and sophisticated, yet full of creative touches that gave their guests an idea of who they were as a couple. Characterizing the look and feel they wanted to achieve as ‘winter glamour’ with just a touch of vintage, they decided on a color palette of burnished gold, platinum and the softest blush pink.  Bringing their guests to South Bend / Notre Dame in December is a gamble with the weather, but they could not see themselves marry any other place than the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, on the campus of the University of Notre Dame.

The couple met at an MBA Welcome Weekend event on campus, at the Eck Center, which is where guests gathered between the ceremony and the reception for champagne and holiday music provided by family members.  The reception was held at the historic Palais Royale in downtown, South Bend, IN. The evening was full of personal details such as the use of the brides’ parents’ cake topper to a customized gingerbread house on the candy buffet.
