Miranda & Sean’s wedding weekend was truly amazing from their uplifting ceremony at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church through their spectacular reception at the Scottish Rite Cathedral.  Coverage began with a rehearsal dinner at Mateo’s on the square in Noblesville.  The next day’s preparations started at the bride’s gorgeous family estate, highlighted by her father’s display of a $2 bill they had split when she was a child.  Following the beautiful ceremony, Miranda surprised the crowd with her bouquet toss before heading off with Sean in a classy Rolls Royce by Antique Limousines of Indy.

After some fun shots around downtown with photographer Jessica Strickland, we gathered at the Scottish Rite’s ballroom, which was magnificently transformed by Gene Huddleson (who referred Miranda & Sean to us) and his Detail+Design team, with help from Thomas Caterers of Distinction, Evans Audio-Visual, Pomp & Polish, Heavenly Sweets and others.  No one will forget the tearjerking reading of a lullaby poem by Miranda’s father, timed perfectly with a slideshow of her early years.  The First Impression Band and Grapevine Entertainment rocked the remainder of the evening, with a surprise explosion of streamers punctuating a perfect weekend.

Sarah & Jonathan got married in a full mass at St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church, a beautiful ceremony in which they were the first couple I’d ever seen do the presenting of the gifts themselves, which was a nice touch.  Afterwards, we all headed downtown for a rocking reception at the Crowne Plaza at Historic Union Station.  My favorite moment was when in lieu of a traditional blessing, the father of the bride led the whole crowd in a spirited rendition of “God Bless America.”  A Bride’s Choice Florist provided an elegant variety of looks for the tables, and the band The Rumors came up from Louisville to keep the crowd on their toes all night.  Huge thanks to photographer Jennifer Driscoll for referring Sarah & Jonathan to us!

Videographer Laurie Foster captured Kristen & Jake’s special day as they exchanged vows in a lovely ceremony at St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church before celebrating at the Renaissance Hotel.  Photographer Jennifer Driscoll (who referred the couple to us) snapped some great images at the Carmel Civic Center in between events as well as throughout the day.  The reception looked great courtesy of Meridian Floral Design‘s flowers mixed with the ballroom’s contemporary look, and the crowd could not resist the dance floor-packing music provided by DJ Jason Hiemstra of J Ryan Entertainment.
