Stacey & Evan exchanged vows on the bottom floor of the Columbia Club downtown before celebrating on the top floor of the One America building in the Skyline Club. Videographer, Laurie Foster, captured the excitement alongside DeFabis Photography, from the saber arch on Monument Circle to the saber cutting of the cake. The room looked fabulous courtesy of Kathy’s Kloset, and Jason Fritz of Pro-Sound Entertainment ensured a fun evening was had by all. Special thanks to Evan for your military service to our country.
I had eagerly been anticipating Brittany & Carter’s wedding day for quite a while, and their ceremony at Christ Church Cathedral and reception at the Skyline Club did not disappoint. We gathered first for preparations at the Canterbury Hotel, where Kiralee of EyeMAX Makeup touched Brittany up while Carter was opening a surprise gift from the bride with some sexy boudoir pics. After an emotional first meeting in the lobby, we walked around downtown with Tiffany and Nate of Nathaniel Edmunds Photography for some more shots.
After a lovely ceremony, we walked right across the street to Monument Circle for some more shots while Tonya Shadoan of Circle City Planners (who referred Brittany & Carter to me) put the finishing touches on the Skyline Club with some outstanding decor by Circle City Designers and Evan Audio Visual. DJ Brian Whitis took over from there, keeping the guests glued to the dance floor with the city’s best view as the sun set over the beautiful downtown skyline.

When many of Indy’s top wedding professionals collaborated on Abbie & Gabe’s spectacular “Rock ‘N’ Roll Holiday Wedding” last fall, we knew that it was an award-worthy event. That recognition came last weekend in the form of the prestigious International Special Events Society (ISES) Esprit Award in the category of Best Team Effort, one of the evening’s top awards, and the first ever brought home to Indiana for a wedding.
Most of our nominated slate traveled to Baltimore for the Esprit Awards ceremony, which concluded Eventworld 2010, the annual ISES conference. After a fun-crammed day of shenanigans under the sun in the famous Inner Harbor, we arrived at the ceremony with some anxiety over how we would fare. The second we heard the first syllable of our entry’s name announced as the winner, we all exploded, and the high never let up from the stage to backstage photos and throughout dinner, dancing and afterwards.
Major props to our award-winning team of Circle City Planners, Nathaniel Edmunds Photography, KB Designs, Evans Audio Visual and Indy Photo Booths. Thanks as well to Crowne Plaza at Union Station, Circle City Designers and the Flying Toasters among others who made the event what it was. Of course, not of this would have been possible without a beautiful couple at the center of it all, so big thanks to Abbie & Gabe for falling in love and entrusting us with your unique vision.

Elaine & Brent could not have asked for better weather for their outdoor wedding and fun reception at the Mansion at Oak Hill. Coverage started with a rehearsal dinner at Maggiano’s, where Brent’s mother and I conspired to sneak a few photos of their earlier rehearsal into their slideshow. Videographer Rich Johnson then took over to cover the many heartfelt and often hilarious speeches.
On Saturday, Randi of Circle City Planners (who along with Oak Hill referred this couple to us) and the Circle City Designers team got everything in place for what turned out to be a short but very sweet ceremony. After some cool photos with Stefanie & Brock of SB Childs Photography, we all headed inside for an emotion-filled reception, highlighted by an emotional welcome by Elaine’s father and a serenade by her brother of a song he had written for her. Zanna-doo took it from there, and the party was on.
