Where do I begin? The wedding planner’s son gets married 🙂 After coordinating many weddings, it was my turn to be the Mother of the Groom. I enjoyed every minute and can’t thank my staff enough for helping me.
Abbie and Derrick’s wedding was a wonderful destination wedding at the beautiful French Lick Resorts, French Lick, Indiana. Both Abbie and Derrick are from Southern Indiana and wanted to be married there too. French Lick was a perfect fit; offering a great weekend getaway, beautiful gardens and lots of activity. It was the perfect spring weekend and the Southern Indiana skies were sunny and bright blue; the same color as Abbie’s bridesmaid dresses. The resort had lots of activity to offer the guests before and after the wedding. The ceremony was planned in the gardens, a sudden rain shower caused a change of location plans. No problem for us! A quick change of plans and the ceremony was held indoors overlooking the gardens.
It was so much fun hosting The Whipstitch Sallie’s Band. This quartet of ladies played folksy, Americana bluegrass music during the ceremony and entertained at the cocktail hour. After the cocktail hour, guests were invited into the Windsor Ballroom for southern Indiana cuisine and lots of dancing. The ballroom was detailed with custom linens in midnight, pewter and cornflower blue. Lots of silver accents and hydrangea adorned the tables.
We loved having the band, American Pie + “Mr. Emcee and Super DJ” Scott Evans there. What a great entertainment combo for a non stop evening of fun and celebration. Thanks to Morgan Matters Photography, Dixon Digital Photography and Love’s Reel for capturing all the special moments and festivities. It was an unforgettable weekend with a lot of special moments.
This fall, we had the privilege to escape to one of the most beautiful and secluded areas in Brown County for a wedding. This wasn’t our typical wedding and we loved it! We began with inspiration from the historic barn;washed with old red, faded paint. It was a gem! We ordered LOTS of sunshine, vibrant blue skies and beautiful leaves for Heather and Ricky too.
The setting was far down a one lane gravel road, with a big old barn, a flowing creek and a landscape you only see in pictures. There, we set up rows of freshly cut straw, covered them with handmade quilts and set up a small altar for our couple. It couldn’t have been prettier! We loved the denim on the guys and the cowboy boots on our bridesmaids! Everyone loved photo shots in and out of the barn. We especially loved the picture of our bride and groom walking down the road to “happily ever after”. What’s your favorite?
