Laura and Ted's Columbia Club Wedding | Indianapolis Wedding Photographer

Laura and Ted's breathtaking Columbia Club Wedding was nothing short of perfection.

L&T tied the knot at arguably of of the most stunning churches in Indy, St John's Cathedral. Laura awed all as she walked down the aisle in her delicate lace dress by Pronovias. But it was hard not to steal a glance at Ted as he saw his bride on their wedding day for the first time. (Queue the tears you guys!) Following their beautiful ceremony was a reception at the ever romantic Columbia Club. 

Dripping with details of blush and gold, Laura and Ted's reception room was decorated to the nines. Gorgeous florals from J. Sims Floral Designs lined the tables, candles and the enormous stain glass windows draped the room in warm summer light. It was the perfect setting for their first dance, toasts by their best man, maid of honor, and Laura's father (who, as it happens, has a hard time getting familial birthday dates straight.)

Once the formalities concluded, my favorite part of the evening started, the dancing! One of my all time favorite weddings bands, My Yellow Rickshaw, made for one packed dance floor.

It's hard do justice with words to how perfectly all the elements of Laura and Ted's wedding day came together. Their love and joy in each other's company is something so admirable and refreshing that it was hard to say goodbye at the end of the night.

Cheers to L & T and to happy and long marriage!

Kristine and Josh's Joseph Decuis Wedding | Indianapolis Wedding Photographer

Meet Kristine and Josh! 

Their story is so beautiful and inspirational, that it comes as no surprise that their wedding day would reflect that same feeling. I could sit here and gush about the perfect weather, the dazzling florals, her perfect dress and shoes, or even the laughter shared between Josh and his groomsmen... but it would be far easier for me to show you their day through the pictures. I'm so grateful to Josh and Kristine for bringing me into their intimate day and letting me make beautiful art to capture their love on film. 

I also wanted to take a minute to share their story. It's a powerful one, and one that has inspired (literally tens of thousands) of people. But who better to share that story than Kristine and Josh. Here's a few words on how they met, what they like to do together, and what they see their future holding. 

Tell me how you met!: We both met on Instagram and connected over our weight loss stories. Josh had lost 300 pounds and I had lost 100 pounds. We immediately had many similarities and talked over the phone for a few months before I made the trip from Ohio to Indiana to meet in person. We hit it off on our first date and went on to travel to see each other every single weekend there after for a year until I made the decision to make Indiana my new home.

What is your proposal story?: Josh and I wanted to accomplish a lofty fitness goal of running a half marathon (13.1 miles). I wanted all of our family and friends to see us cross the finish line since this was something we worked so hard to accomplish. I was surprised when my brother and sister in law flew in all the way from California just for the event, but Josh had cued them in on the surprise that would take place that day! When we crossed the finish line Josh got down on one knee and proposed. Little did I know that everyone knew about his grand plan except for me.

Hobbies you like to do as a couple; What makes you unique in your coupledom?: We like to be active together (running/walking), go out to eat and try new restaurants and we love cooking at home together and create new recipe ideas.

Favorite part about planning your wedding?: Since we are food lovers, the food and cake tasting were very enjoyable experiences. We have also really enjoyed planning our honeymoon!

What plans does the future hold for you both?: We are currently building a house and hope to move in by fall! We are looking to do mini getaways as vacation time is limited. When the time is right we will plan for baby Steele.

 

Cheers to the newlyweds!
