On a beautiful spring day with a little bit of rain early for good luck, Sabrina & Brock enjoyed an elegant ceremony at St. Mary Catholic Church, followed by a lively reception at the Marriott North.

I arrived at the church in time to capture some preparations, lots of beautiful decor by Kathy’s Kloset, and some fun photos with Kiera Dubach. After the full mass, the photos continued at Monument Circle and Holcomb Gardens, and this bridal party was clearly ready to party.

At the reception, DJ Wes Adkins of Event One DJs kept the formalities moving along, with many special touches along the way. My favorite was when Sabrina & Brock invited both sets of parents to dance to the same song that, coincidentally, each set of parents had first-danced to at their own respective weddings.

Brittany & Luke exchanged vows in front of 600 guests at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church before celebrating under a massive tent on her family’s residence, with recording artist Jon McLaughlin providing the formal dance music.

Coverage began the night before at an amazing Carmel lodge nicknamed “The Barn,” where 80 guests were treated to a fantastic meal by Great Cooks and Company and a hilarious series of skits by the couple’s friends and family.

On the big day, videographer Laurie Buschmann captured all the stunning details of the ceremony and reception, coordinated by Premier Event‘s David Jackson and designed by Enflora‘s Toomie Farris. Following dinner service by Kahn’s Catering and the Jon McLaughlin-led formalities, the Nashville-based Pat Patrick Band brought a blast of old-school rock and soul, keeping the huge dance floor packed the rest of the night.

Special thanks to former clients Melody & Dylan Gandy as well as photographer Kevin Swan for referring Brittany & Luke to us! For more great shots, check out Kevin’s blog.

Ashley & Chris exchanged vows at my church, St. Luke’s United Methodist, then celebrated their union at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. It was a day filled with many surprises, some planned and some not – Chris appropriately calls it the “Blood, Sweat & Tears Wedding.” But by the time it was all over, this resilient couple enjoyed a fantastic day with many stories to tell.

Their first meeting took place on the beautiful grounds of the IMA, followed by photos with Angela Talley (who along with the IMA referred them to me). Then it was off to the Robertson Chapel in St. Luke’s, beautifully decorated by Eventful Florals, for a most eventful ceremony. By the time Ashley & Chris shared their first kiss as husband and wife, the rousing applause was well-earned.

As they returned to the IMA for more pictures, their guests lined up for their own snapshots courtesy of Indy Photo Booth. The reception was abuzz with stories of the day, splendid food by Kahn’s Catering and music provided by the Souled Out Band, highlighted by a surprise performance by the father of the bride. Capping a crazy day, even the IMA’s Vanessa Chavez got into the act, channeling McGyver to help give Ashley & Chris the final photo op in front of the fountain that they had long hoped for.
