      A Fall Wedding at Laurel Hall

      Morgan and Alex are high school sweethearts and had the most amazing weather for their fall Laurel Hall wedding.  After having a history of more than 10 years together, their sweet day was finally here!  Every aspect of their wedding day flowed with graceful elegance and peace.  The complimentary colors used in this design are still some of my all-time favorite color palettes for fall!  Expertly designed by Isibeal Studio, no detail was left undone for this wedding!  (more…)

      A Glamorous Gatsby Wedding at Laurel Hall

      I absolutely adore this family! Alyssa’s mom came to me a few months before the wedding to ensure they had everything perfect for her little girl’s big day!  They already had an amazing vendor team together, but she wanted to be able to relax and soak in the special moments and details of her daughter’s wedding day.  So we stepped in to help bring this Glamorous Gatsby wedding to life!

      Indianapolis Yacht Club Wedding

      Melissa and Jason’s Indianapolis Yacht Club wedding landed on a hot summer day. We had a few light showers in the afternoon and this sweet couple embraced the rain to get some of my favorite pictures with the clear umbrella!

      A Romantic Wedding at The Mill Top

      Anyone who loves Anthropologie will love Sydney and Thomas’s wedding! Every piece of decor was thought through with this amazing store as inspiration and the organic and natural elements of the venue space.  The entire day was full of emotion, but in the calmest and softest way possible. Sydney was intimidated and stressed by the idea of coordinating a large wedding party; so her and Thomas agreed to just have her sister Tory and his friend Greg stand up with them. This not only lifted a huge weight off her shoulder, but it also allowed for an intimate feel to the day that may have otherwise been missed with their large guest count. (more…)

      A Laurel Hall Wedding in Indianapolis

      Any time I hear a bride say she wants to have Tiffany blue as her wedding color, I start to get nervous. Flashes of the late 90’s with black and white damask start flashing before me.  But I had nothing to worry about with Brianna. She had a vintage romance vision that incorporated some of the most beautiful accent colors to Tiffany blue that I have ever seen.  Even though it was her favorite color, we kept it subtle and classy, the perfect blend for her and Eric’s vintage romance wedding!  (more…)
