The holiday season was kicked off in style with Abby & Anatoli’s winter wonderland wedding at Christ Church Cathedral and the Columbia Club, with the newly-lit “World’s Largest Christmas Tree” towering over the proceedings.  I arrived at the club just as Karen Hall & Company were putting the finishing touches on the beautiful bride, and then joined Nathaniel Edmunds Photography as the couple greeted each other in the lobby and headed outside for photos.  Following the wedding, Monument Circle formed a panoramic backdrop for the reception in the Crystal Terrace, which was beautifully decorated by The Empty Vase along with a cake by Taylor’s Bakery.  After a few formalities including the traditional Russian bread and salt ceremony, Jim Cerone‘s music led the way for a fun evening of celebration.

Jessica & Marcus tied the knot (literally) in an elegant wedding ceremony and enjoyed a dance-filled reception at the Columbia Club. Coverage started with preparations in the bride’s room, the couple’s first meeting on the first floor, a few bars on the Hoagy Carmichael piano by the super-talented bride, and photo time with Erin Hession and her team. Then the ground floor ceremony incorporated unique touches like handfasting (i.e., tying the knot) and a wine box filled with love letters to be opened in five years.

The reception in the 10th floor ballroom featured some amazing dance moves by the bride & groom, who met each other through their mutual love for ballroom dancing, while the Cool City Swing Band provided the classy tunes. The room looked lovely courtesy of Bokay Florists, and the team from A Touch of Elegance provided exactly that and so much more to the entire day.

The Soldiers & Sailors Monument provided a majestic backdrop for Hilary & Travis’ ceremony on the first floor of the Columbia Club as well as their reception in the Crystal Terrace on the third floor.  It was hard not to smile at the start of the ceremony when a family friend sang “Today I Met the Boy I’m Gonna Marry” while Travis nervously awaited the entrance of his stunning bride.

After some photos on Monument Circle with Andrew Scalini, the action moved to the Crystal Terrace, where the guests enjoyed amazing service, a photo booth by Indy Photo Booths, and great live party music by Zanna-doo.  Consultant Leslie Jones (who referred Hilary & Travis to us) did a masterful job behind the scenes, and Tim Kelley of Palmer Kelley Designs filled the room with an ambiance that provided an elegant balance to the stunning chandeliers overhead.

I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter couple than Emily & Jamey to film on their extravagant wedding day at the Columbia Club.  With out of this world decor designed by one of my all-time favorite industry friends (thanks for the referral, “GB!”) and smashing music by Chicago band Orchestra 33, the whole day was a feast for the senses, beautifully captured by Megan W Photography.

Kelsey and Peter’s ceremony took place on the first floor of the Columbia Club followed by a reception in the 10th Floor Ballroom. We started the day capturing the couple getting photos taken by photographer Kiera Dubach.

The flowers for the ceremony and reception were beautiful thanks to JP Parker Flowers. As always, guests enjoyed dancing to the music provided by Jim Cerone (thanks for the referral Jim!) and posing for fun pictures in the booth from Indy Photo Booths. The reception highlight was a beautiful serenade by the bride to the groom.

Best wishes Kelsey and Peter!
