Jamie & Matt exchanged vows in a beautiful wedding ceremony at St. Christopher Parish in Speedway before celebrating at the Conrad Indianapolis. Their first meeting took place in the stunning Kite condo on the top floor of the Conrad, which offered an unparalleled view and backdrops for photographs by Erin Hession’s team.  (Check out the amazing photos on Erin’s blog!)  After the ceremony, we all proceeded to the newly restored Monument Circle for more shots before settling in at the Conrad.

The reception featured gorgeous decor by The Empty Vase, an elegant cake by Heavenly Sweets, and great party music by the band Groove Essential. All of these details were expertly overseen by Deborah & Cassie of A Touch of Elegance. Special thanks to the Conrad’s Amanda Spicer for referring such a fun couple to us!

Marissa & J.W. shared an elegant, music-filled ceremony at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church before celebrating during a high-energy reception at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.  Marissa looked amazing, and J.W. is simply one of the most free-spirited grooms I have ever met, which became clear when I had to dodge Nerf darts just to say hello to him.  The ceremony included a large share of music beautifully sung by a choir that included many members I recognized from my own church.

Antique Limo brought the couple to the IMA, where we spent a good amount of time roaming the grounds of the IMA for photos with Turtle Pond Photography before heading into Deer Zink for a superb dinner by Kahn’s Catering.  The decor by Circle City Designers was fabulous as usual, but one only had to look up to see the true focal point of the room – dozens of paper stars from India modified by Scott Evans into stunning lanterns.  With the band Groove Essential leading the way, J.W. set the tone for the evening by twisting, turning and twirling Marissa to the point that they both ended up dizzy on the ground at the end of the first dance – seeing stars, of course.  Kudos to Darcie Kornmeyer of Circle City Planners (who referred us) for coordinating such a memorable occasion to perfection.
