What. A. Party.
Beautiful, but not overdone. A NBA Bulls Style introduction. Sweet speeches for sweet people, yet sprinkled with good laughs (about how Audrey’s dad delayed for hours a call back when he knew it was “the call” from Kevin). The delicious food of the Conrad. Jim Cerone making the party happen on the dance floor until their exit. The room was exploding with love. The dance floor full of smiles and great moves. A carriage getaway to their fairy tale day. (Did Taylor Swift write a song about this kind of thing?)
Audrey, you and your family are so special to us, it’s been an honor to spend 2 very special days with your family. (this day and your sister Emily’s wedding)
Kevin, you will surely be an amazing husband and father, you are a special man.
May your love grow deeper over the decades and God bless your journey growing together!
Wow, I so loved everything about this wedding. Kevin and Audrey are such genuine people and had been looking forward to this days for years. They endured the test of long distance relationship through college and had the opportunity to live in the same city while they were engaged. Audrey and her mom (with probably some help from her sisters) planned an incredible day to celebrate her and Kevin’s love. These two are just so sweet, the whole day just made my heart melt.
The Conrad set up a huge room for the ladies to get hair and makeup done in, which was an awesome change from a crowded hotel room or suite. Kevin and Audrey opted for a private first look and were fortunate enough to have use of the condo on the top floor. Kevin had a smile on his face non stop from when he got to see his bride. For good reason, she was stunning and they were having an amazing day.
Their Catholic mass was probably the most meaningful mass I have been to, so intentional and personal. Although their day was so beautiful and elegant, it captured their personality well that they rode the Hippo bus back to the Conrad. It’s nice to be lighthearted. We made a super quick stop at Garfield Gardens (worth a trip if you haven’t been before) since the mass was a bit lengthy (which can happen when the priest is practically family). Plenty of fun in the Hippo bus as we made our way back downtown!
That dress. Totally Audrey, totally gorgeous.
I just wanted to include a family picture, since I’ve worked with this sweet family twice!
The Omni Severin is just a one of a kind place. It has old school, historic glamour. People tend to ask me where my favorite place to photograph is. Not an easy question in a place with as many offerings as Indianapolis, but the Omni is on the list. Moving from cocktails on the upper level, down the stairs to dinner and then opening up the ballroom for dancing sure makes for a great movement of a party. (and can provide totally different feels to the parts of the reception) It was great to see an old client Evan serving as DJ for the night (I say old client yet he’s still younger than Tim and I, but knew us pre-kids) So many close friends and family friends were part of this group for Ashley & Joey. A unique thing about high school sweethearts that go to the same college, is that so many people know each other so well by the time a wedding comes around and everyone is ready to CELEBRATE. They brought the energy and had fun all night long. When I say they, I really mean everyone, it was an all-in celebrating crowd (even the oldest guests that were couch dancing).
Ashley & Joey, what a loyal group of friends you two have and incredibly supportive families. A blessing as you start this new chapter of your lives.
Katherine & Brett tied the knot at St. Peter’s Lutheran church in Columbus Indiana. I will say that it was an unusual feeling standing in the cry room before the ceremony, remembering being in that same place before I walked down the aisle to meet Tim. The service was beautitul and their bubble exit was full of sunshine and blue skies. We had a great time doing some photographs at Cummins (where Brett was to soon start working). The Commons had a huge wow factor, with cocktails being served around the giant Chaos sculpture. The rest of the evening was upstairs in the ballroom and some mingling on the outdoor patio under the stars. Marie with FCCI Weddings did and incredible job with coordination and set up of such a beautiful space.
The sweetness of Katherine & Brett’s love just made me smile all day long. Posting late, as they already have all of their photos, but much love to these newlywed lovebirds who reminded us so much of how we felt when we got married.
