Tissues were mandatory at Katie & Lance’s emotional wedding and reception at the Scottish Rite Cathedral.  After a sweet first meeting in the Tiler’s Room, we roamed around downtown for some shots with Nate & Cambrie of Nathaniel Edmunds Photography.  Then came the gorgeous ceremony in the theater, which Katie’s very pregnant twin sister was able to enjoy via iPad from the hospital.  She also delivered a pre-recorded toast during the reception while sitting (again via iPad) right by Katie’s side, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.  The room looked fantastic with huge black ostrich feather centerpieces by Bella’s Blooms, and the service by Thomas Caterers was sublime as usual.  And for the second consecutive night, I got to film a packed dance floor courtesy of Grapevine Entertainment.

Angela & Chad are a stunning and very sweet couple who exchanged vows in a lovely Friday ceremony at St. Mary’s Catholic Church before celebrating at the Scottish Rite Cathedral.  Though they didn’t see each other before the wedding, Josie of Crowe’s Eye Photography set up a cute moment where they got to hold hands and say “hi” to each other.  Then after the ceremony, we hopped over to the Lockerbie area for some more shots before heading to the reception.

The ballroom looked fantastic, not surprising given the team behind it – Darcie of Circle City Planners (who along with the Scottish Rite referred Angela & Chad to us), Circle City Designers, Thomas Caterers, Classic Cakes and nice lighting by Brian Whitis.  Mark Beecher of Grapevine Entertainment expertly presided over an amazing evening enjoyed by all, and after some candid shots in a Circle City Photobooth, we couldn’t say goodbye to this adorable couple without a few more nighttime shots outside.

Stephanie & Stafford’s wedding day at The Montage was filled with fun, family, friends and decent weather in the middle of a crazy hot summer.  After the couple’s first meeting in the ceremony garden, our good friends Dawn & Mike Fisher of Galleria Studios took the bridal party around the property for some nice photo ops.  The ceremony in the garden was beautiful, as were the vows that Stephanie & Stafford wrote for each other.  The reception inside was highlighted by the usual amazing service by Kahn’s Catering (who referred this event to us), tastefully elegant decor by Alan Thompson, AIFD of McNamara, and packed dance floor courtesy of Mark Beecher from Grapevine Entertainment.

Shelli & Thomas experienced an epic wedding weekend including a spectacular ceremony and reception at the Indianapolis Marion County Public Library downtown. Coverage started with a quick rehearsal followed by dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory. On the big day, I arrived in time to capture the preparations as Karen Hall worked her magic, while Deborah & Cassie of A Touch of Elegance (who referred the couple to us) scrambled behind the scenes to make sure all the amazing details were in place. After some photos with Jamie Sangar, it was time for the beautiful ceremony, which included a cool sand ceremony symbolically blending their sizable families into one.

The reception decor in the atrium was simply stunning, highlighted by Bokay Florist‘s amazing creations, Sweet Seductions‘ towering cake and Evans Audio-Visual‘s moody lighting among many other details. After an amazing meal with outstanding service by Compass, DJ Eric Shannon kept the party rocking until the very end. Big thanks to Brandon New for capturing some sweet footage throughout, and for helping me surprise the couple with a same-day edit.

Liz & Matt enjoyed a beautiful, deeply spiritual ceremony at Second Presbyterian Church, followed by a rousing reception at Meridian Hills Country Club.  Photographer Brian McGuckin staged some cool shots prior to the ceremony, including a sweet moment where the couple got to hold hands without seeing each other.  The ceremony looked fabulous with Royal Creations‘ flowers dotting the aisle.  Following a nice cocktail hour outside at the club, everyone headed into the ballroom for an amazing night filled with fun, laughter and great music provided by First Impression.
