Saturday’s coverage started with hair and makeup at Salon 2000 overlooking Monument Circle, then back to the Columbia Club for preparations. We had plenty of time, so I used this time to get some fun shots of the ladies getting ready, to break in a third new HD camera, and to capture the amazing transformation of the club’s lobby level by the talented ladies of BoKay Florist. Photographers Jim & Lois Wyant, with whom I had also worked two weekends earlier, joined the party in time to stage a tender first meeting of the couple and then some fun shots on the Circle.
For all the extravagance, the ceremony itself was a short and sweet ten-minute affair, after which Amie & Justin hopped on a horse carriage ride while the guests moved to the 10th floor for cocktails. The reception featured the usual great hospitality by A.J. Ploughe’s staff (the apple martini bar with the monogrammed ice sculpture was my favorite touch) and sublime dance music provided by the band Sequel.
