Lindsay & Seth enjoyed a wonderful wedding weekend, starting with an elegant rehearsal dinner at the Skyline Club, which provides the most amazing view of the city. Then Seth and his huge entourage teed off the next morning at the Legends of Indiana golf course in Franklin. As a former professional athlete in the Chicago White Sox organization, Seth was clearly unfazed by the pressure of sinking long putts with a video camera right at the hole. Lindsay and the gals had their hair and makeup done at Studio 2000 overlooking Monument Circle, where I ran into my good friends Tiffany and Nate of Nathaniel Edmunds Photography covering a different bridal party.
Then it was off to the spectacular Indiana Roof Ballroom with ultra-creative photographer Andrew Scalini (with whom I will be working there again in three weeks), where we enjoyed the luxury of having plenty of time to set up gear and get lots of great shots of the couple while the nice folks from the Shadeland Flower Shop transformed the ballroom. The ceremony took place under a beautifully lit chuppah, where a sneaky hidden camera gave me a great view, and I was tickled that the entire wedding party was willing to listen to my suggestion of switching sides per Jewish custom. The rare post-ceremony ketubah signing took place in the dark balcony, where my camera light came in handy. The reception was predictably spectacular as well, always a given when the Flip Miller Band is lending their fast-paced set to the proceedings, and day-of consultant Martha Rohr did a great job of keeping things moving along, a necessity after the 7:01 p.m. ceremony start time.
