A few weeks ago all of the cousins were together for the weekend. Five kids 3 and under, not crazy at all. Getting a photo all together, near impossible.

Happy 4th Birthday to my sweet niece Lorelei!!! (a little belated, birthday was Sunday)
The Indiana Chapter of the International Special Events Society held a luncheon at the newest hotel addition to Indianapolis, The Alexander. (thanks Maxie for awesome hospitality) It is very modern and holds an incredible collection of art, curated by the IMA. As you walk in the lobby it feels very open and clean, with loads of natural light and plenty of interesting furnishing.
During the lunch each table was given an event scenario; client, budget, guest count for which they designed an event for. Then each table took turns presenting while some of the Alexander staff judged. Creativity and laughs were abundant, especially as “event disasters” were averted. (such as an additional 400 guests the week of)
This hotel is definitely a gem of the city and is worth a visit, even if just for a drink after work.
my incredible Vegan lunch (when you don’t do dairy you tend to just get vegan and this was amazing)
All things St. Patty’s Day!

Ceremony & Reception
When I met Jessie and Brian they were upfront about having a unique situation. They were planning a wedding in just a few weeks before moving out of the country. You see, they both work at the same company and they were getting transferred overseas. So we did an engagement session and wedding day planning all as they were preparing for a major life change last summer.
Fast forward to wedding day, they are both so excited to see all the family and friends they had missed over the last few months of being thousands of miles away. The Mill Top was the perfect place for them to spend quality time with their wedding party on the big day. The ladies had a huge suite to spread out in and the guys had a “man cave” complete with poker, pool and Irish Car Bombs. The St. Patrick’s theme was pretty apparent throughout. Jessie’s father, a Methodist minister, performed a fantastic ceremony. It was personal, lighthearted at times, serious, full of good wisdom, full of tears and tradition. I’ve witnessed so many great ceremonies and this was really one of the best. Jessie was all smiles and so relaxed the whole day. Brian is clearly smitten with Jessie.

What an incredible night for an incredible group. Going into this event I did not know much about Best Buddies. Throughout the evening I teared up behind the camera learning and listening to the stories from the leaders and participants of this special organization. The love and joy that was in the room was an encouragement to be around. I have no doubt they were successful in raising plenty of funds for the upcoming year. The spread of auction items was impressive from a basket of Blondie’s cookies to a week long African Safari! Tim and I greatly enjoyed the honor to help with such a well done event.
