Sarah + Jason – Mavris Indianapolis Wedding

Sarah and Jason have a story. Hockey guy from Minnesota meeting a country girl from a small town in Indiana. This was a fun wedding. The ceremony was at a small church in Shelbyville with a lot of character and the reception was at the Mavris in downtown Indianapolis.

A couple months before their wedding I got to meet Sarah and Jason for lunch to talk about their day. It was cool to see how much they are in love. And from meeting them I could tell there wedding would be a lot of fun. Then they mentioned their photographer was Jennifer at Baby Grace Photography, and I was like, “wait, I know her!” It is always fun working with her and her assistant.

Well enough said, take a look at Sarah and Jason’s video and while your at it, leave a comment. Congrats Sarah and Jason, it was great being part of your day!

Sara + Aaron – Hawthorns County Club Wedding

It seems like yesterday I met Sara, Aaron and their family over at McAlister’s Deli, and now their wedding has come and gone. This was a day full of emotion, just as everyone expected. Sara and Aaron were great to work with and their bridal party was some of the most hilarious people I’ve met.

It’s always nice going over to the Hawthorns County Club for a wedding. It seems like lately I’ve been a regular there. I hope Sara and Aaron can look back at this day for years to come, have a lifetime of joy and happiness! Congrats Sara and Aaron! Thanks for including me as a part of your wedding.

Lindsey + Chris – Indiana Landmarks Center

Lindsey and Chris have to be the nicest couple I’ve met so far. I know I may have said this before, but really they are sweet and madly in love. Just as Lindsey’s dad said, if you don’t know their story, you should. Chris has known Lindsey for over 20 years until he finally got the courage to ask her out. And they pretty much knew on the first date they were going to marry. Here they are, on Friday the 13th, at the Indiana Landmarks Center tying the knot. Which by the way, the Landmarks Center is one of my new favorite venues. Not only is it nice having the ceremony and reception in the same building, the building is beautiful. I believe it was an old church, recently remodeled. It was also great working with Jessica Strickland, be sure to glance at the photos here.

Just take a look for yourself and see the love Lindsey and Chris have for each other and even more important, God. It was a pleasure being invited to your biggest day. I’ll never forget it. And if it gets a little burry over the years, I’ll watch this again.

Meghan + Ryan – Laurel Hall Weddings

Laurel Hall is another one of those hidden gems in Indianapolis. This place has been a beautiful home, a girls school and is now an amazing wedding venue. Laurel Hall is tucked away from the road near Fall Creek and 56th Street. I think I found the venue for my daughter’s wedding, I better start saving.

I was really looking forward to this wedding with Meghan and Ryan. They are a sweet couple in love. As you’ll see in the video, the toasts were amazing. It’s not often you hear from the mother of the bride and it was a pleasure to hear the emotions coming from her voice. Meghan and Ryan, thank you for choosing me to help capture the day.

Jessica + Scott – Indianapolis Wedding

Jessica and Scott, well what can I say… Some weddings have planners, but this was a wedding where Scott and Jessica along with family and friends put a lot of hard work and time to make it happen. And not only did this couple pull it off, but they pulled it off well. It’s not everyday you come across a couple that first met in the church like Jessica and Scott. This strong foundation will give them a marriage built on solid ground with the Lord as their number one priority.

I like the shot of the flower girl coming down the aisle and meeting up with her proud mother. I also love the reaction on Jessica’s dads face when she hugs and kisses him after the ceremony. But most of all, I think when Scott’s brother mentions that their dad is looking down on them and smiling, was my favorite part of the day. Jessica and Scott, may the years to come be filled with even more joy than this special day.
