Today I want to discuss the importance of insurance for your special event, celebration, wedding and lifestyle. Our expert is Rob Zimny, IU grad, Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity, Shelbyville native from Pfenninger, Claxton and Estelle Insurance Agency in Shelbyville. Rob may be reached at 317.398.9797. You may get free quotes and insurance policies with him with or without having any insurance coverage at his agency. We will chat and try to address some of your concerns for insurance. Note we are not selling nor advising, just bringing some information to the table. Let’s start with Renters Insurance. A lot of you rent an apartment or home. Renter’s insurance is inexpensive and a lot of times you are able to get renters insurance with the same company you have your auto insurance with. It’s usually about $10 more a month and you are getting $25,000-$30,000 on your personal property (furniture, clothes, computer) Jewelry needs to be scheduled on your homeowners or renters and insured for an agreed value. It confirms you are getting pretty much what you exactly have. Let’s make an example, if you have a flawless one carat diamond that you purchased for $7000 and you have it specifically scheduled for agreed value, if that ring was lost or stolen you would get the same agreed quality for similar value. If you did not, you may get a one carat diamond coming from WalMart or possibly a check for $2,000 instead of $7,000. It could possibly not be the same like, kind and/or quality. Gentlemen, make sure to get the engagement ring insured as soon as you purchase it. Weddings, Farm or Outdoor events: Who/What to insure??? The person that owns the property would need to carry the homeowner/farm insurance. The hosts are approving the event and the property is in their name. They need to look into a one day or weekend policy. Ideally, everyone would have insurance, farm owners, parents and the hosts. If the hosts or family live out of state, they would need to investigate with their insurance provider. Laws may be different and it would be best to research this. Two people that live separately ( both have renters or homeowners insurance) generally would be covered. The insurance company would determine how to split the coverage if there was a problem and it would be the decision of the insurance company. It is a tricky situation and would take time to determine the resolution. A suggestion would be a rider for the day and they would also have an umbrella policy usually to $150-$200 per year for $1000000 up to $5,000,000 and a one day special event on top of this The umbrella policy covers a year i.e. if you have $500,000 on your personal liability and you had an accident you would have an umbrella. A young couple that have one car and they are renting are not the ideal couple for the insurance. The ideal client that would be liable would be someone that has property, value etc to lose several cars, their main home, lake home, boats etc. Once the amount of liability you have is used up, the rest comes out of your pocket i.e. your house, personal property, car or more. Lots of times, prominent individuals especially, want to make sure they are covered in case they are sued or if there was any type of injury. Ask the question…. If you are going to be sued what do you have to lose? Serving alcohol and the number of guests helps determine the insurance coverage fee. Gifts: Gifts are in a car and the car is broken into. It’s covered if you have auto insurance. If you are at your venue and gifts were stolen it may be hard to recover. More than likely turning the claim in would be more than the deductible. Travel Insurance: This is something you should check into prior to making any reservations. You need to make sure you know exactly what it covers and if this is what you desire. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact Rob.
We love being involved in destination weddings. This summer we had the privilege of helping Sarah + Johnny with the details for their Colorado Wedding. What fun we had! Better yet, they were married during a 7 hour pocket of great weather before the terrible storm in Colorado. We are so thankful for them and that their wedding was a beautiful time. We love sharing this picture with you and there will be more to come.

What’s the best RX prescription for happily ever after? Two doctors falling in love!
What a great experience to work with Drs. Fred and Yelena Makori on their wedding. We first met Yelena and her mother a year prior to the wedding. Yelena and Fred were so busy working on their medical residencies and living apart. It was trying times, but they had one thing to really look forward to; their marriage.
It was so much fun to partner with Yelena and her mom, working from a distance, on a a big day back here in Indy. Regular calls and lots of our coordination services were just the right prescription for this busy bride. We tried to make all of her planning “appointments” easy and get lots done in big “doses”.
We were thrilled to help Yelena not only with the coordination services, but design too. Both the ceremony and reception were held at the Marriott North. Yelena had chosen beautiful white linens and chair covers accented with black satin. We added gold chargers, lots of golden mercury glass candlelight and beautiful pale pink posies for a romantic and elegant look.
We were able to incorporate a lot of personalization into the wedding; especially with Fred’s Kenyan (Africa) background. I so admired Fred and his family. Leaving Kenya and coming to the USA to live and to work had a lot of challenges; not one challenge that Fred nor his family would not overcome. What a story, what a family! <3
We wanted everyone to have a good time. We added spices and flavors to the food, made sure the music was familiar to the guests and fantastic, plus provided a great venue for all those travelling out-of-state and out of county. Our guests loved every minute. The DJ played many unfamiliar tunes to us, but really familiar to our guests. It was fun to hear and feel the beat of the drums as the DJ called out the music that everyone loved to dance to and enjoy- a great prescription. The late night dessert bar was pink and perfect as well. Tiny bites of pastries and cups of fluff lured guests to enjoy one more moment of this grand and unforgettable day.
We are so happy for Yelena and Fred. They made us so very proud of them and we hope we made them so very happy!

Our Bride and Groom, Kimberly and Anthony Denning could not have chosen a better
day to express their love; Their October wedding day was a perfect Autumn day with just
the lots of sun and bursts of blue skies. ……At last!
They both had a distinct vision of what they
wanted and we provided it! Anthony and Kimberly chose a “Fall Sunset” theme with beautiful jewel tones of magenta, amber, coral and plums.
The former military couple met at their sons ballgames. Soon, Anthony became a “winner” with Kimberly. Next, they became engaged and the wedding planning began! After months of planning each detail, their big day finally arrived. What a wonderful group of people to work with! As family and friends gathered together to witness Kimberly and Anthony exchange their vows at University United Methodist Church we were fortunate enough to meet them all and enjoy their many talents. Anthony’s brother, Josh Denning, tours the world as a vocalist and gave an amazing rendition of . Julliard trained keyboardist Dr. Virginia Jefferson and her daughter, NYC entertainment attorney, Ms. Virginia Jefferson offered the ceremony music.
We will NEVER forget Kimberly coming down the aisle to “At Last”. All eyes were on the bride as she walked through the thousands of rose petals, making her way to the altar.
After the ceremony, guests travelled to the Embassy Suites for the reception. The ballroom at the Embassy Suites North was filled with hundreds of different shaped colored vases in the Bride’s palette of magenta, amber, plum, and gold. Kimberly ventured all over Indy to collect the unique and colorful vases that accented the tables. Each of the vases was unique in size and shape- allowing for her vision of a spectacular sunset look. We loved the accents of custom eggplant linens, gold chargers and colored votives glowing throughout the evening.
The dance floor was never empty and once Kimberly changed into her lighter, ’dance ready’ dress, she was in step doing the Electric Slide
with her minister. Dr. Moore’s smooth moves captured everyone on the dance floor, as they followed him step by step- Electric Sliding.
Kimberly, a former US Army Police Officer and her husband,Anthony a former US Air Force Dental Hygienist share a love for good food , and travel. Their goal is to explore the globe together. They are looking forward to travelling all around the world in the upcoming years.
Kimberly and Anthony were married- “At Last”
