Indianapolis Wedding: Liz+Mark

                                                                                                                                                    

Liz+Mark’s wedding was one we will not forget.  Liz +Mark came to us after reading an article Liz’s mom read in The Broadripple Gazette about our company.

Liz’s family was relatively new to the area and Liz+Mark were really busy professionals.  We were thrilled to join in their wedding planning.  Thus began a great friendship and lots of planning time.  I love Liz.  She is pretty, sooo smart and an IU Hoosier.  In fact, unbeknownst to us, Liz’s mom and I attended IU together, lived next door to each other in different sororities and knew the same people.  Liz also was a member of her mom’s sorority and shared in our love of Bloomington.  Mark is a great guy too.  Mark is a FABULOUS baseball player and fan!  A graduate of DePauw, we shared stories about his alma mater and baseball.   We loved helping Liz+Mark with vendor referral, design of their wedding, all of their invitations and coordination.

Their wedding was held at the United Methodist Church on North Meridian on a sunny afternoon. Prior to the wedding, we “trollied” for pictures with my new friends, “Jesse and Gina, Evansville’s renowned photographers” around town.  One of our pictures was at the Eiteljorg under a statue with an umbrella-just for fun.  A few raindrops came right after our pose, but we didn’t think a thing about it.  The sky began to get gray; just before the wedding. Near the end of the  ceremony the weather changed.  With no real warning, we needed that umbrella!  Rain poured hard and it poured fast.

Everyone was onboard the trolley headed for downtown. We arrived at Union Station.  The entire wedding party was dodging the showers to get into the Crowne Plaza/Union Station for the reception.  As soon as we arrived all of the lights went out.  No problem, we had LOTS of beautiful candles burning and were ready for the guests.  Soon the Crowne had the lights were back on, the music was playing and lots of laughter filled the room.  It became a perfe

Later we were looking out the windows at some beautiful downtown city scape with drops of rain glistening like jewels on the windows,thinking about this beautiful couple and their beautiful dayct evening; just like the day had been.

Indianapolis Southside Wedding

Tyler and Nicole’s Southside Wedding was splendid in every way.  With an amazing palette of blush pink and champagne gold, our Trendsetting Team assisted Nicole in making her wedding a true Royal Occasion!  We loved the ceremony at the beautiful St. Roch Catholic Church.  Friends and family were beaming and teary eyed as they witnessed the beautiful Nicole and her handsome Groom, Tyler state their vows.  After the ceremony the wedding party was whisked away, for fun photos with Nathaniel Edmunds Photography and Jet Kaiser Films in Fountain Square and along the graffiti walls on Madison Avenue.  Guests, in the meantime, gathered at the magnificent Columbia Club on Monument Circle for the reception.  The ballroom was a breathtaking site of pink champagne and golden glimmer.  Our Trendsetting Team created a head table that was phenomenal; an arbor of gold with suspending candlelight and multitudes of floral and crystal glass. Guests loved  The Living Proof Band, as they danced the night away.  Special thanks to A.J. Ploughe  and staff, at the Columbia Club, for being the ultimate hosts!
