Oh gosh you guys, I KNEW Monica and Kevin’s wedding day was going to be so perfect the minute I saw Monica pull up to the church (St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church) in Carmel. She looked GORGEOUS! And true to course, the entire day went so great. A bride and groom that are both RIDICULOUSLY good looking, a wonderful message delivered to them before exchanging their vows, and weather that made for a perfect evening reception at the Indiana State Museum. How about I share more of their big day with you?
I had my AWESOME friend and second shooter, April, with me to capture the guys getting ready and I had to laugh when I saw this shot she captured. I’m not sure if it was intentional, but I like that Jesus decided to join Kevin and his friends for some R&R before he said his vows! :) And also, how GREAT does Monica look in her dress? I was so in love with her gown. The bottom reminded me a bit of my own wedding gown … I’m such a sucker for dad-and-daughter shots in those moments right before he gives her away. Hands-down one of my favorite “real” moments of a wedding day. April and I both agreed that this church had some beautiful architectural elements going on… Time to party down in the trolley! (But not before first making sure the driver knew which way she was going, right guys? ;) ) I love when a groom and his groomsmen get creative with their apparel … See what I mean? These two are so beautiful together they made my job EASY. (and Monica wins props for possibly my favorite wedding updo ever) From photos at Monument Circle to a few more snaps along Indianapolis’ Canal Walk, Monica’s wish for a wedding that paid homage to some of her favorite spots of the city definitely came true! These two capped off the night with a BEAUTIFUL reception at the Indiana State Museum. As we were approaching the venue, Monica told me she had dreamed about a perfect night with her guests mingling over cocktails along the Canal and when we pulled up, it was so awesome to see herplans for this wedding executed so perfectly. Monica and Kevin, thank you AGAIN for hiring me to photograph your wedding. It was such a pleasure to get to know you and to see you guys soak in all the love and affection your family, friends and guests bestowed upon you on this special day. I hope these photos help you always remember it!
