Indianapolis Arts Garden Wedding – Kelly and Rishi

Where to even begin with this one!

Kelly and Rishi’s wedding was a weekend full of so much crazy fun and the nicest bunch of people, so so so good!

We arrived at Rishi’s parents home Saturday evening to cover the mendhi party. While the ladies got intricate mendhi tattoos guests hung out and ate incredible food before some wild dancing and tumeric paste being rubbed on Rishi’s face by family and friends. Such a fun way to get the weekend kicked off!

The next morning we arrived at the Hyatt Regency as Kelly and her bridesmaids prepared for the Hindu ceremony. After the saris were tied and jewelry carefully placed we headed to the Indianapolis Arts Garden for their first look before the ceremony. We shot a few portraits around the downtown area before Rishi and the guests headed to Monument Circle for the barat. The circle was shut down from traffic as the guests partied their way to the Arts Garden with Rishi and his sister bringing up the rear in a horse drawn carriage. After arriving back at the Arts Garden entrance the couple made their way to the mandap for their beautiful ceremony. While their Hindu ceremony was a shortened version it still held all the important rituals and the pair had the sweetest looks on their faces whenever they caught each other’s eye.

After the Hindu ceremony we shot a few more portraits in the Arts Garden before Kelly rushed off to change into her wedding dress and head back to the Arts Garden for their Christian ceremony. After their I do’s and first kiss we headed out around downtown Indianapolis for portraits and even climbed up the Indianapolis War Memorial to get a shot of Kelly and Rishi with their first apartment together in the background.

We headed back to the Hyatt Regency for their reception once we had finished portraits. After their entrance, speeches were made and dinner was served. After  an amazing dinner the couple cut their cake and shared their first dance and dances with their parents before the dance floor opened. Hindu weddings always have the best dance floors and this one was no exception, everyone was out there all night busting their best moves.

We can’t even begin to express how honored and lucky we are to be able to be involved in days like this one! Kelly and Rishi are gems and their day is one we will be sure to remember for a long, long time.

Hidden Hollow Farm Wedding – Whitney and Dave

Whitney and Dave’s wedding was a total fairytale the whole day and such a joy.

We started our day with the girls getting ready on one side of the barn at Hidden Hollow Farm and the guys on the other. After dresses and bowties were on and sweet letters exchanged we shot a few portraits before their ceremony was to begin. Their ceremony was nestled in a sunny spot by the woods and the crowd gasped as Whitney made her way on a horse drawn carriage. After vows and I do’s the pair greeted their guests and we shot a few more portraits of them and their fun wedding party before their reception entrance.  Hidden Hollow Farm’s barn was so gorgeous with the huge windows and roses on every table. After dinner and speeches the party moved outdoors for their first dance and dances with their parents. We headed to the edge of the property as the sun was setting for the best golden hour light we’ve had all year and returned to the dance floor in full swing. We wrapped up for the night after a sweet dance with guests all holding sparklers around Whitney and Dave.

This wedding was pure magic and Whitney and Dave are two of the best around!

Indiana University Bloomington Wedding – Jessica and Ken

Big, dark clouds were the first thing we saw after getting up and ready for Jessica and Ken’s wedding day. I thought for sure we’d be moved inside for the entire day but the weather was nice enough to give us a perfect cloudy day to shoot these two sweethearts.

Our day started with Jessica getting in her dress before a few portraits around the IU campus. Their ceremony was held at the Rose Well House and was so sweet, from the moment Ken saw Jessica until their first kiss. We walked around Indiana University for a bit to shoot some portraits of the two of them and their wedding party before heading the Indiana University Memorial Union for their reception. Their reception, held in the Tudor room, was so pretty with roses and greenery covering the tables and the softest light coming in from the huge windows. Right after they entered they shared their first dance before dinner and speeches. The pair cut their cake and tossed the bouquet and the guests made their way to the dance floor. We finished our night shooting a few more photos of just the two of them under the soft cloudy skies.

These two are just the nicest and their day was so perfect.
