Tricia + Matt = Married!

Last Sunday we photographed Tricia & Matt’s gorgeous garden style wedding at the Indianapolis Museum of Art! We’ve been looking forward to their wedding for awhile now, Tricia actually told me during the initial consultation that she had us chosen for her photography before she had even met Matt yet! LOL! I thought that was pretty cool! :) Here’s our gorgeous bride, Tricia…

And her handsome hubby, Matt…

LOVED the bow ties!!

AND her flowers! AMAZING!! Watts Blooming on Mass Ave created this awesomeness!

I loved all of the girls flowers, they were so unique and yet so perfect for the occasion!

Instead of a traditional guest book, they had their guests sign a real book full of photos and stories of some of their favorite places, I thought that was a neat idea!

Patrick Hanley (my side-shooter/BFF Melissa’s husband) did an awesome job officiating the ceremony, as always! He cracks us up!! He’s not your typical minister, he performs at some of Indy’s comedy clubs every now and then. If you’re looking for a young & fun minister that can really personalize your ceremony and break the ice, he’s your guy! :)

Did I mention he likes to get the first pic after pronouncing a couple as husband and wife? Yeah, he’s awesome. :)

Yay!! :)

They had a great wedding party who would do anything for photos! :)

In front of the Lilly house…

I LOVE this shot…makes me want to snuggle with my husband! ;)

You two are SO cute together!!

It started to sprinkle on our walk back to the reception site so I loaned them my umbrella… :)

The best man came prepared! LOL

Time for brunch! :)

And some yummy cupcakes from The Flying Cupcake!

Tricia told me in the beginning that she loved our cool ring shots so I went to town! :)

I loved the profile on her bling! :)

LOVE!

Since they’re wine connoisseurs, I thought this would be appropriate too! ;)

Thanks for a great time you guys! LOTS more photos coming soon! :)

 

Giselle’s Newborn Photos!

On Tuesday, we photographed Giselle’s newborn photos down in Terre Haute for one of our past wedding couples, Ashley & Othmane. (Remember their awesome La Jolla wedding?) :) Well, they just gave birth to their brand new beautiful baby girl, Giselle!!

So sleepy!! Yawn….

She ADORES her mama, it was so cute to watch her watch Ashley intently during the photo shoot!

Nighty night!

LOVE this one! Isn’t she adorable!?

Giselle has the cutest pink nursery!!!

Mommy & baby = LOVE!

Aunt Jessica & Giselle!

Cutest tutu outfit ever! :)

I LOVE this pic! We had just taken her pacifier out and she still had those cute little puckered lips out! Precious!

Time to go to sleep…

We went outside and took a few pics of Ashley & Othmane together too…aren’t they adorable together? :)

And their dog Stella wanted to play the whole time! :)

Thanks for a fun time you guys! Congrats on the new addition to your family! :)

Indiana State Museum!

Last Monday we photographed the Indiana State Museum downtown! It was such an honor to be asked to shoot their event spaces, catering and a “model bride” in their space for their new marketing brochures and website! :) The ISM has such a GREAT view of downtown and the canal! Here is one of their outdoor spaces attached to a boardroom…

Like I said, the view is awesome!!! :)

If you are looking for a unique downtown venue for a corporate meeting or event, this is a great place to check out!

Meet Tara, our model bride for the day…

She looked STUNNING! A special thanks goes out to all of the vendors involved in this photo shoot, especially Jennifer Treadway from Alfred Angelo for loaning us the dress and accessories, Lilly Lane for the gorgeous flowers and decor, Party Time Rental for all of the rentals, Katie Putnam for helping coordinate the catering shoot, McKenzie Schoo from Bobby Cooper Salon for doing an awesome job on Tara’s hair & make-up and especially our friends Bryna, Erica & Susan at the ISM for all of their help that day, you ladies ROCK!!!

GORGEOUS!

We photographed each of their spaces but I would have to say that one of my favorites was the Tea Room. :) My mom & I have had lunch in here several times and it’s such a pretty, relaxing space with yummy food. I think this space is a hidden gem in our city, if you’ve never been there, you are missing out!! I can only imagine how fabulous this place would be for a bridal shower or baby shower! :)

Thank you Tara for being willing to stand in a window sill…yes, it was a tad crazy but yes, it was totally worth it! You look AMAZING!! :)

Another favorite space!!!! We’ve shot a ton of receptions in the Great Hall and I have to say, it always looks AMAZING! If you’re looking for a reception venue, check it out HERE! :)

Some yummy catering photos…

Another view of the Great Hall…

The view of downtown from the cafe, love it!

Tara, you are adorable! :) Thanks so much for being a great model for us that day!

Thanks everyone for all of your help that day, more pics coming soon! :)

Covance 3D Event!

On 5/18 we photographed the decor and set-up for the Covance Spring corporate event at the new Landmark Center for Deborah Sheeran, the amazing event planner who owns Deborah Sheeran Weddings of Distinction! She chose a great venue and did an awesome job with their 3D theme this year!

Everything looked gorgeous!!

The view from overhead…

She had these HUGE 3D glasses set up on the edge of the bar! Super cool!

Scott Evans from Evans A/V and Jamee Bryant from Setting the Mood did an awesome job incorporating her 3D theme into the logos, uplighting, cocktail tables & centerpieces!

Jamee found these 3D napkin holders! Fun!

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED these centerpieces!!!

Yep, there were 3D glasses inside the vases! :) Genius!

Thanks for a fun time Deborah!! I always love your decor and set-up shoots, you do such amazing work! :)

Heidi + Shawn = Married!

On 5/14 we photographed Heidi & Shawn’s gorgeous vintage style wedding! Heidi looked GORGEOUS in her birdcage veil, ruffled dress with bling and light pink flowers!! Chuck from Meridian Floral Design even suggested putting a broach in her bouquet, it totally completed the look. He rocks!! :)

I’m obsessed with birdcage veils! LOVE THEM!! :)

Heidi, you should model…seriously! :) Karen Hall & Company did an awesome job on her hair & make-up that day, as usual! We LOVE working with Karen and her staff!

Loved her peonies…so pretty!

Stunning!

Our handsome groom, Shawn!

They got married at Bethel Lutheran Church in Noblesville, I loved the stained glass windows in the church! WOW!

Such a happy, proud moment… :)

“I do!” :)

YAY for bubbles!

They had a great wedding party!

I loved their vintage car from Antique Limo!

This shot was definitely a favorite!

And this one…you guys are so adorably cute together!! :)

We dodged the rain all afternoon pretty much but it stopped sprinkling long enough to get some cool photos with the car once we got to the reception site! YAY! :)

Their reception was at Harbour Trees Golf Club in Noblesville, the club provided the cake and catering. Not only did the cake look beautiful but the catering was fabulous!

I loved how happy they were,  it showed through in all of the photos! :)

Terry from DJ’s Direct kept the dance floor PACKED all night! He’s awesome! :)

Sparklers!!

Thanks for a great time that day!! Hope you had a fabulous time on your honeymoon! More pics coming soon! :)
