Lily and Rob's Scottish Rite Cathedral Wedding

Do you have a glass of champagne handy? Because as your scrolling, you’re going to want to cheers this beautiful couple because their day was so perfectly chic, so delightfully fun, and so effortlessly sweet.

They began by getting ready at one of my most favorite hotels in Indy, the Omni Severin, then heading down to St Francis and Clare Catholic Church for their ceremony. All eyes were on Rob as Lily walked down the aisle, seeing her for the first time that day.

After they exchanged vows, rings, and a kiss, we headed back downtown for photos around the monuments, stopping finally on the steps of the Scottish Rite Cathedral.

Dripping in gold and greenery, their reception room was quite the sight to behold. With touring florals and chic linens topped with greenery and candles, their head table was the focal point. They even had their names in monogramed lights shining on the dance floor.

As cocktails and hors d’oeuvres floated around the terrace, Lily and Rob danced their first dance as a married couple on the main floor. Followed by intros, toasts, dinner, and of course, plenty of dancing!

I’m so excited to share with you the photos from their day. So lift those glasses of bubbly (or whatever you happen to have on hand) and cheers the newlyweds!

Katie and Jordan's Engagement

Katie and Jordan's engagement session was an absolute dream. I cannot wait for their wedding this November and to capture more of their relationship in stills. 

Chris and Anica's Palladium Wedding | Indianapolis Wedding Photographer

Anica and Chris had such an amazing wedding day, I had to break it down to my favorites just to cover the highlights! 

 

My favorite parts of the day:

Anica and her Dress

- First of all, Anica's dress was straight out of some rose gold fantasy! The beading, the tulle, the layers. Seriously you guys, the pictures are beautiful, but real life, this dress was amazing. She also had her sweet momma there to help her put her dress on. 

 

Their First Look

- We had been planning their first look for weeks. But nothing can prepare you for the reaction you'll have seeing your partner for the first time on your wedding day. Watching Chris's face light up when he saw her dress was just absolute magic. 

 

Wrinkles and Polo's Wedding Day Debut

- It just wouldn't have been their special day without a visit from their fur babies. And who doesn't go absolutely giddy for pups!? Their little wiggly butts made the day even more perfect.

 

The Details

- There was definitely no lack of attention to detail with Anica and Chris. From their invitation suite, to the custom matching floral bow ties, to the peonies flown in from Europe that had been in storage since May. They even had a painter come during the reception to paint the scene (YES SERIOUSLY). There was even, what can only be described as, a balloon sculpture for the ceremony! It was a photographers dreeeeeam. 

 

The Vendors

- The day just wouldn't have been the same without the amazing vendor team (special shoutouts below). You want the best day possible, you gotta hire the pros! We all had so much fun working together to make Anica and Chris' day special. 

 

Seriously, I could go on and on. Cheers to the newlyweds!

Julianna and Drew's Purdue Wedding | Indianapolis Wedding Photographer

Cheers to the newlyweds Julianna and Drew! Their Purdue Memorial Union Wedding couldn't have been more beautiful. 

How they met: Drew and Julianna met at Purdue University during pharmacy school. They met through mutual friends. Julianna had just learned to drive stick shift and offered to give Drew a ride in her purple Saturn coupe, but her shifting skills were not up to speed and Drew gave her a hard time. But he took her out for pizza, which was the key to her heart, and ultimately made up for it.

Their proposal story: During Labor Day weekend 2017, Drew and Julianna went on a road trip to Moab, Utah. They spent time hiking, camping, and visiting Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. On their way back to Denver, they stopped and rode bikes to the trail at Hanging Lake. Once they made it to the lake, Drew was acting very strange. He kept asking Julianna to sit on different benches with him and was also remarking on how many people were around. While hiking back down, Drew would stop every few feet and look around. Julianna wanted to keep going so they could get home to eat! They got back on their bikes to ride back to their car. Drew saw some otters in the river and pointed them out, so they got off their bikes. While Julianna was watching the otters, Drew got on one knee and surprised Julianna, asking her to be his wife. She said yes!

Katie and Dejan's Sycamore at Mallow Run Wedding

Katie and Dejan's Sycamore Wedding was everything good you could wish for your wedding. Beautiful weather, gorgeous details, a beautiful bouquet of fragrant flowers, wonderful guests, and two partners who are absolutely head-over-heals in love with one another.

One thing I just absolutely cannot deny was my favorite part of the day was the way that Dejan treats Katie. He absolutely adores her in a very special way. He has this beautiful personality himself, and Katie is such a doll, that the two of them together make the perfect pair. The way they look at one another, especially the way Dejan looks at Katie (see photos below.) 

I cannot believe my luck in finding these two. Their engagement session was so much fun, and it still might be one of my favorite engagement sessions from last year. I am so excited to share this set of pictures, these beautiful mementos from a perfect day. 

Cheers to the newlyweds!
