      Spring Wedding at Laurel Hall

      To say I love this venue would be an understatement! The architecture, the grounds, the history, I love it all! And so did Winnie! Winnie and Jeff had the most beautiful romantic Laurel Hall wedding this Spring. Every time I do a wedding here, I love the challenge to make it look different than what has already been done. Soft pinks, gold, and ivory were the shades she chose making my heart skip a beat!   (more…)

      A Romantic Wedding at Laurel Hall

      Kim and Alex had the most romantic  Laurel Hall wedding and is featured in the 2017 Fall issue of Wedding Day Magazine! We love seeing all of these gorgeous blush, burgundy and navy fall details in print! It was a beautiful fall day for these two and every detail came together beautifully.  Not only did Kim have impeccable taste, but we also shared a love for all things Harry Potter! Needless to say I was extra excited to have Thomas Caterers serve mini butterbeer mugs with dessert.  (more…)

      An Italian Inspired Wedding At Indiana Roof Ballroom

      To say I have been excited to share this wedding would be an understatement! Leslie and Jeremy had the most magical Italian-inspired Indiana Roof Ballroom wedding and these images from Nathaniel Edmunds are nothing short of spectacular!  I absolutely adore these two and loved bringing this Italian vision to life!  This design truly made you feel like you were walking through the streets of Italy as Dean Martin’s 1956 classic “That’s Amore” played in the background.  (more…)

      An Indian Wedding at the Conrad Indianapolis

      Aradhana and Mike had a beautiful Indianapolis Indian wedding at the Arts Garden downtown.  This glass dome has become one of my favorite venues for a downtown wedding – it is absolutely stunning and all of the natural light makes for some amazing pictures from Nathaniel Edmunds Photography(more…)

      A Summer Wedding at The Lucas Estate

      Danae and Mitch had the best weather for their Lucas Estate wedding. Sunshine, blue skies, and a slight breeze made for the perfect setting on their wedding day! As I drove up the winding drive, I could see all of the pieces coming together – the ceremony chairs were all set by the creek, the rental company was unloading the last of the items to the reception space, floral designer was on site, and the bridal suite was ready to go. It was the beginning of a truly magical day.  (more…)
