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. 

The wedding day was full of so many sweet emotions! Leslie couldn’t stop smiling and it was contagious. Every bride deserves to smile this big on her wedding day! Every detail came together perfectly – from the hand painted invitations from Momental Designs, hand beaded linens, to the five foot tall ice sculpture that decorated the Italian gelato station, no detail was left undone.

There were so many elements that made this day perfect – one in particular was the touch of sapphire throughout the day.  As one of Leslie’s favorite colors (and the center stone of her amazing engagement ring), this color started as our initial main color. Once Leslie saw the bridesmaids dresses at Bella Bridesmaids, everything shifted to neutrals and I have to say I absolutely LOVED it. But I knew how much she loved the sapphire blue, so we made sure to find subtle ways to incorporate it into her design (and shoes! Oh the shoes!!!).  See if you can spot them below!

I could seriously write about this wedding for hours, but I won’t do that to you 🙂   I will never forget the look on their faces as they walked into the ballroom. They were speechless! The fountain, the twinkling lights, the 48 ft. arbor over the head table all made you feel like you were whisked away to Italy for the night!  All of the hard work, planning, and set up was worth every minute to see these two as happy as they were on their wedding day!  Let this go to show that dreams really can come true and any room can be transformed into your vision.

Leslie and Jeremy – we’re so honored to have been a part of your day and I loved reliving every moment through these images from Nathaniel Edmunds!
