I had so much fun with Carrie & Marc on their wedding day at the Indiana State Museum, from their first look at the top of the INDIANA statue and photo time with the Bello Romance Photography team through their lovely ceremony setup courtesy of Wow Factors/Evans Audio Visual.  The reception rocked as well with dinner service (and epic dessert spread) by Kahn’s Catering and music by Living Proof, while planner Jeanne Milan did a fantastic job overseeing all of the day’s details. Mazel Tov, Carrie & Marc!

Jordan & Kevin enjoyed a beautiful wedding at Concordia Lutheran Church, followed by a fun reception with their hilarious bridal party at the Indiana State Museum.  The day was filled with lots of creative touches, from the streamers & paper lanterns that greeted the guests at the ceremony to the bicycle that greeted them at the reception.  Following the ceremony, we all headed out with photographers Jim & Debbie Meyer of Meyer Studio for some great shots around downtown.  The reception looked amazing with the INDIANA statue hovering over Royal Creations‘ beautiful decor, and the crowd had a blast dancing to music provided by Kyle of Party Time Sound right up until the very end, when Jordan & Kevin rode off along the canal on a 4-wheel surrey bike.  Thanks to consultant Deborah Sheeran for doing a great job and referring this fun couple to us!

Susie & Frank are a sweet, resilient couple who overcame death and illness in their respective families to make their wedding day a poignant celebration of love and life, starting with a ceremony at the Indiana History Center and ending with a reception at the Indiana State Museum.  The ceremony was truly a personalized affair, with members of their families and bridal party providing readings and taking turns reciting each of the traditional Jewish seven blessings.  The presence of a rabbi, minister and bishop during the ceremony provided an elegant blending of spiritual elements (not to mention a hilarious setup for the best man’s toast later).

The reception featured a lot of nifty little touches, a priceless reading of a poem by Susie’s father, and entertainment by DJ Tim Fuller.  Both venues looked incredible courtesy of decor by The Empty Vase, and planner Marie Frey did a masterful job of organizing and executing all the details of the day.  The couple stayed around for some nice nighttime photos on the canal with photographer Zach Dobson, and one sweet final dance alone with each other after the guests had left for the evening.
