Shelby & Brian’s wedding day took place on the amazing private Nashville, Indiana property owned by Brian’s family, affectionately named Serenity Lake Lodge.  After capturing preparations in the house and the couple’s first meeting on their lakeside dock alongside photographer Jessica Strickland, we moved into the stunningly decorated barn for a short but sweet ceremony.  Then the action moved to a tent by the house for dinner, featuring gorgeous tables created by Wow Factors, out of this world centerpieces by Bella’s Blooms and Hoaglin Catering‘s usual delectable service.

Meanwhile, the Mon Amie Events team (who referred this event to us) flipped the barn to reveal a dramatic new look sculpted by Evans Audio Visual‘s lighting design and a surprise by the groom courtesy of Classic Cakes.  Minutes later, Brian’s father surprised the crowd by playing a song on one of the grand pianos that he had written for the groom’s mother after their first date.  DJ Krista Lee took it from there, rocking the crowd into the night.

Tissues were mandatory at Katie & Lance’s emotional wedding and reception at the Scottish Rite Cathedral.  After a sweet first meeting in the Tiler’s Room, we roamed around downtown for some shots with Nate & Cambrie of Nathaniel Edmunds Photography.  Then came the gorgeous ceremony in the theater, which Katie’s very pregnant twin sister was able to enjoy via iPad from the hospital.  She also delivered a pre-recorded toast during the reception while sitting (again via iPad) right by Katie’s side, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.  The room looked fantastic with huge black ostrich feather centerpieces by Bella’s Blooms, and the service by Thomas Caterers was sublime as usual.  And for the second consecutive night, I got to film a packed dance floor courtesy of Grapevine Entertainment.
