Two years after covering Kelly & Tim’s wedding, I was thrilled to rejoin the Gavaghan family for Emily & Tim’s (Kelly’s brother) wedding at Holy Cross Parish, followed by a rousing reception at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. After preparations including makeup by Kiralee, Emily and the gals took some fun photos downtown with Danny Iskandar while I set up at the church for their beautiful ceremony, which concluded with the couple being escorted out by a bagpiper. The reception looked stunning thanks to Flowers on the Square and consultant Marie Frey of Fashions & Custom Creations. Everyone loved the authentic R&B grooves of Chicago’s Mike Dangeroux Orchestra, but it was the bridal party’s performance of a ditty called “The Bobbarino” during the best man’s toast that Emily & Tim will never forget.

From a prom to a promise. Jennie & John, one-time prom dates who lost touch for seven years, found each other again on Facebook two years ago and finally exchanged vows at Tabernacle Presbyterian Church, followed by a lavish celebration at the Scottish Rite Cathedral. The rehearsal dinner at the Eiteljorg Museum was quite a party in itself, with lots of great food by Kahn’s Catering, music and dancing.
The next day, Jennie transformed into a princess right out of a storybook, and the guys were stylin’ in their hats and canes. An all-star team of vendors including Circle City Planners (who referred the couple to us), McNamara Florist, Thomas Catering, Evans Audio Visual, EyeMAX by Kiralee and Antique Limo all outdid themselves to make this fairytale wedding day come true. Photographer Dawn Fisher of Galleria Studios and videographer Rich Johnson captured the timeless moments as everyone danced into happily ever after courtesy of music by the Endless Summer Band.
