Jen and Taylor Engagement | Indianapolis Wedding Photographer

Even though we got rained out of our original location, I cannot imagine a rainy day session turning out better than Jen and Taylor's. Their sweetness and love towards each other made this chilly day so much warmer. I cannot wait to share their photos with you all! 

Mackenzie and Kevin Engagement | Indianapolis Wedding Photographer

I'm so excited to introduce this adorable couple. Meet Mackenzie and Kevin! We started their engagement session at her brother's new (old) house in Herron Morton to get a few photos on this epic staircase. 

Afterwards, we went to their house for photos with the pups, and a few snapshots around their adorable abode (Mackenzie has EXCELLENT taste in decor!) 

I cannot wait for their wedding next year at The Barn at Kennedy Farm!

Caroline and Robert's The Commons Columbus Wedding | Indianapolis Wedding Photographer

I am giddy with excitement to share this wedding with you all! Caroline and Robert were so sweet, so sincere, that every moment I've spent working with them during their wedding has been so delightful. 

Caroline and Robert, high school sweethearts, were wed at the most darling church tucked away in the hills of Brown County. After exchanging vows, rings, and kisses, they were sent on their way to the Commons in Columbus for their reception. 

The tables were decorated with lovely shades of merlot and burgundy florals with greenery and candles accenting their fall tablescape. But beyond the florals, sounds from the smooth jazz band serenaded the guests during cocktail hour and dinner. Caroline's grandfather, Don, lead the band. Toasts, dancing, and laughter filled the room. 

I also wanted to share this adorably funny blurb Caroline wrote about their love story: We met years and years ago when we were in summer band camp together. We were entering 6th grade. We both played the drums and were competitive, however, Robert liked me but I couldn't stand him! In 8th grade, Robert switched schools to my middle school so we were in the same school band, became friends, but then attended different high schools. We officially started dating our freshman year of high school and have been together ever since!

Cheers to the newlyweds!

Casey and Sarah's Backyard Wedding | Indianapolis Wedding Photographer

Casey and Sarah had the sweetest backyard wedding. Located on a darling farm in Danville, these two sang, exchanged vows, and ate the most delicious cinnamon rolls alongside their closest friends and family. The setting was so intimate, and the laughter so cheerful, that it was hard to say goodbye at the end of the night. 

Cheers to the newlyweds!

Chloe and Nate's Pendennis Club Wedding | Indianapolis Wedding Photographer

Chloe and Nate's wedding was filled with dreamy taupe chiffon, blue sparkly shoes, white hydrangea, and most importantly of all, warm laughter with their friends and family.

I first met Chloe and Nate at Chloe's older brother's wedding last year. So imagine my excitement when I got a call asking from Chloe (and her sweet mom, Donna!) if I was available Labor Day weekend. 

Their ceremony was at the historic St Bonafice Church in downtown Louisville. St Bonafice's striking gold doors, dramatic stain glass, and beautifully carved pews were absolutely breathtaking. But the architecture was not the only thing melting the guests' hearts... Chloe and her dad walking arm in arm down the aisle was my favorite part of the day. I think we all melted.

After the ceremony, guests headed to the Pendennis Club for cocktails, toasts, dinner, dancing and CAKE! I love this group and their ability to dance ALL. NIGHT. LONG!

I'm so lucky that this little family found me, that I got to be there to witness C&N's lovely wedding day, and that I can now share it all with you. 

One last thing before you scroll, Chloe wrote the most adorable piece on she and Nate's love story. If you don't think this is the one of cutest thing you've ever read, your heart is made of stone... 

"How we met and proposal story: Once upon a time, almost four years ago, Nathan and Chloe became a duo. After meeting at a party through Matchmaker Sam, Nathan sent Chloe a modern day telegram. A first date at Hammerheads proved a success, little did they know how their love would transgress. Chloe a first time teacher and Nathan in law school, time flew by and they were stuck in a whirlpool. Happily in love with each new day, Chloe knew Nathan was quickly sweeping her away. Their family and friends continued to praise, the blossoming relation that kept them both in a haze. Finally one day they realized their love was a gift that was sent from way up above. On a warm summer morning on a hike by a lake, Nathan got on one knee and Chloe's hand he did take. A scratch off, a ring, and some champagne too, Chloe promised Nathan forever saying I do. With family and friends all around, and wine to share, this duo will feel all the love in the air. A promise they vow forever to take and with you there to help celebrate."

Cheers to the newlyweds!
