After the balcony ceremony, cocktails over looked the golf course and then the guests were greeted into a reception room full of beautiful flowers. Sarah & Jon’s reception kicked off with some witty and heartfelt words my Sarah’s dad. Many of the traditional things took place, cake, toasts, special dances, but then things looked a little different as dueling pianos provided the entertainment for the evening. Yes, there was dancing like with a DJ or band, but it was very interactive and entertaining even for the guests who enjoyed sitting at their tables and visiting. My favorite request was “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” by Sarah’s nephew the ring bearer, who by the time it came up already had fallen asleep from all the fun. The vendor team of Jennifer at Salt Creek and Rachel coordinating for Lilly Lane were a dream to work with.

Wedding Pictures are family history, just part of why I love my job.
Sarah’s dad really stole the show for a while, delivering both laughs and tears.
I have to say I didn’t expect the best man “Buck” to shed tears over how great a friend Jon had been to him.
Driving down to Brown County on June 14th was beautiful, blue skies and sun shining. When we met up with Sarah and Jon they were in great spirits and so laid back. After getting ready in separate condos, they met each other for their first look in a shady spot near the creek. Sarah was simply radiant in her dress and her gorgeous smile never left her face. Tim and I enjoyed driving them in golf carts around the property for their photos, we shared many laughs. We then met up with their wedding party and family, before heading inside to cool off and rest before their outdoor ceremony begin. Right before the ceremony Sarah’s dad surprised her with a very special ring from her great-grandmother, sized just for her.
The sky was a beautiful blue and Sarah walked down the aisle with her dad to meet Jon and say their vows. A fun evening was in store after the ceremony, but that is for the next post…
After years of a long distance relationship, Audrey and Kevin are enjoying being a short drive away from each other this summer and this upcoming year as they close in on their wedding day next summer. Kevin’s persistence in pursuing Audrey has paid off as their relationship has formed despite the several hour drive and once a month weekends together.
We enjoyed a beautiful evening walking around Coxhall Gardens in Carmel, Indiana. It was great to hear about what their life looks like now, their plans for the wedding and what life after the wedding will look like.
Audrey & Kevin, enjoy the time together you have this summer before schools are in sessions and internships are in full swing. Enjoying the ability to do the everyday things together. We’re looking forward to being part of your big day!
During cocktail hour around Union Station’s historic bar, the Grand Hall was transformed into Jen & James dream reception. All the planning Jen and her mom did came together beautifully. After lots of good food, dancing, laughing and visiting the night ended with a sparkler send off. I’ll let the photos tell the story.
Jen and James are full of so much laughter. It was a joy to share in such a fun day with them, celebrating the beginning of their life as man and wife!
Union Station downtown was the perfect venue for all of the days festivities. Jen and James were surrounded by people who love them; what more could you want in a day?!
