Sometimes last-minute bookings are the most fun. Ashley & John had attended a wedding a weekend or two before their own and realized they wanted to preserve the memories of their big day on video. After a cute first-look and lovely ceremony at Plainfield Christian Church, they headed downtown for photos on Monument Circle with Sara & Mallary Photography.

The reception took place at the Conrad, whose ballroom was decked out in stunning fashion with orchids provided by Hilltop Orchids. The formalities were highlighted by a surprise “first dance” arranged for John’s parents, who were not able to enjoy a first dance at their own wedding nearly 40 years ago. The great band Living Proof (whose agent Lisa Sauce of Blonde Entertainment referred this event to us) took it from there, and the guests enjoyed singing into the clever “microphones” made from mixing spoons by one of the bridesmaids.
