From their gorgeous ceremony at St. Barnabas Catholic Church through their epic reception at the Crowne Plaza at Historic Union Station, Kristen & Tim’s wedding day was truly inspired.  Following preparations at the Crowne, we all headed to the church, where Kristen & Tim enjoyed a nice moment together without seeing each other.  That moment was followed by a beautiful mass, and then more pretty photo ops with Jessica Strickland at the Indiana State Museum.

The reception was over the top amazing, with decor by Alan Thompson, AIFD of McNamara Florist, event branding by Pomp & Polish, live music by The Impalas, cake by Classic Cakes, lighting design by Evans Audio Visual, man-cave by Wow Factors, booth by Indy Photo Booths, and most impressively, a round dance floor replica of the iconic Union Station windows.  The vivid imagination of planner Monica Richard of Mon Amie Events (who referred this event to us) was evident in that as well as many other touches big & small inspired by the round window motif and the couple’s Notre Dame ties.  Cheer, cheer for Kristen & Tim!

Julie & Larry picked a gorgeous wedding day to exchange vows at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church in Zionsville and celebrate at D’Amore Indianapolis.  After the ceremony, photographer Jessica Strickland and I headed downtown for some fun shots around the War Memorial before settling in at D’Amore for the best view in the city along with some lovely decor by Posh Petals, superb service by Thomas Caterers, and sublime entertainment by Event One DJs.  Special thanks to Jess & D’Amore for referring such a sweet couple to us!

Being hired by fellow event industry professionals is the highest honor I could receive, so I was excited when Greg Imboden of the Indy Express Band gave me a call about his & Linda’s wedding day. The ceremony at Faith Presbyterian Church was filled with nice musical touches, especially the bride’s entrance to their song “When I Fall in Love.” I had a blast afterwards with photographer Amanda DeBusk as we captured some nice moments around Fort Harrison. The reception at the Fort Harrison State Park Inn was an affair to remember, with a very melodic cake by Classic Cakes setting a tone at the entrance. With pianist/vocalist Dave Lowe leading the way, Greg and his musician friends provided wonderful music for their guests throughout the evening, with my favorite moment being Greg’s jam session with his two talented sons.

Katie & Marc’s wedding & reception at The Alexander was a great way to kick off a busy Labor Day weekend. From their preparations through their first look and photos around this amazing property, it was a joy as always to work alongside Tiffany & Nate of Nathaniel Edmunds Photography (who referred Katie & Marc to us). When the weather was refusing to cooperate, Maxie Haber and her Alexander staff did a phenomenal job of improvising the timing and order of the ceremony & cocktail hour to make it eventually work inside the ballroom, where Posh Petals‘ decor looked simply fabulous. I loved so many things about the reception, including Tiffany & Maxie joining the hora, the family gift presentation that had me ready to duck, and the superb club DJ/live band mash-up that Marc affectionately calls “Sleepy Floyd and the Indy Local Musician Alliance.”
