Videographer Brandon captured the action as Nikki & Matt enjoyed a beautiful winter wedding & reception at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.  After toughing out the cold temperatures for some outside shots with Nathaniel Edmunds Photography, they exchanged emotional vows in the towering Pulliam Hall.  The gorgeous decor courtesy of Kathy’s Kloset along with the terrific service by Kahn’s Catering set the tone for a fun evening with music provided by The Simple DJ.  Thanks to Brandon for filming, thanks to the IMA & NEP for the referral, and most of all, congratulations to a wonderful couple!

Frances & Phil shared an emotional, faith-filled wedding ceremony at the Indiana Landmarks Center, followed by a reception at the stunningly decorated Indianapolis Museum of Art. Our coverage started with a fun rehearsal dinner Friday night at the Westin, then resumed Saturday at the ceremony site as Jim & Lois Wyant were capturing group photos. The ceremony including several unique spiritual touches such as a group prayer among the bridal party, communion and a sand ceremony where the sand filled an actual picture frame of the couple.

The guests gathered in the Pulliam Hall at the IMA for cocktail service by Kahn’s Catering before proceeding to Deer Zink Pavilion, which was stunningly lit only by the glow of Chinese lanterns overhead, installed by Scott Evans and the Wow Factors crew. Sweet Pea Floral Design‘s beautiful work completed the transformation, and Wedding Entertainment Director Jim Cerone (who referred Frances & Phil to us) presided over the rest of this amazing evening, which was executed to perfection by Laura Lim of Eventfull Planning.

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.

Laurie captured the details and emotions beautifully as Charlotte & Rodney tied the knot at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.  After an elegant wedding highlighted by unique readings and a special sand ceremony, the couple roamed around the grounds for some fun shots with our friends from Wyant Photography.  Meanwhile, the Deer Zink Pavilion was decked out in fabulous fashion by McNamara Florist, while the Pulliam Great Hall was expertly accented by Evans Audio Visual for cocktails, with a dramatic change-up in lighting for dancing later in the evening.  A “Soul Train” line was a fun and funky way for the band to kick off a memorable night of dancing for the guests.

Caitlin & Preston exchanged vows at the beautiful St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church in Westfield before heading to the Indianapolis Museum of Art for an amazing reception. The Disney fairy tale-themed tables mixed in nicely with touches by Knox Flower Shop located in Frankfort, Indiana. The guests were entertained throughout the evening with dinner service by Nourish Cafe, a slideshow by Astra Creative, music by Lakeside Entertainment and a photo booth by Strike a Pose. We had the pleasure of filming Caitlin’s brother Andrew’s wedding a few years ago, so it was great to catch up with this wonderful family. Congratulations!

Elena and Ryan enjoyed an elegant wedding ceremony at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church before celebrating with a surprise-filled reception at the Scottish Rite Cathedral. Following the ceremony, the bridal party took off in a trolley for photos with Jamie Owens of J. Scott Photography at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.

The reception setup looked fabulous thanks to the efforts of Royal Creations, Thomas Caterers of Distinction and Classic Cakes. Rick of DJs Direct kept the crowd going all night and helped execute the highlight of the evening to perfection, as Elena and her father “interrupted” their own father-daughter dance to surprise their guests with an epic Greek dance.

Congratulations Elena and Ryan!

Rania and Jeff celebrated their wedding day at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Although the weather that day was dreary, it didn’t dampen their spirits in the slightest. The warm feeling of love surrounded the beautiful couple as we captured their “first look” and bridal party photos with talented photographer Kiera Dubach.

Since the couple met on the tennis court, some fun touches included pictures taken with tennis rackets and a groom’s cake in the shape of a tennis ball.

The ceremony and reception went flawlessly thanks to fabulous coordination by A Touch of Elegance, and all of the florals from Palmer Kelley were just stunning. Kahn’s Catering provided an unbelievable array of delicious food, and Mike Degler of SDI Sound kept the tunes spinning and the dance floor full.

Thanks to Hope Oaks for the referral, and thanks to Rania and Jeff for inviting us to capture your special day. Best wishes to you always.
