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.
