The Barn in Zionsville Rainy Day Wedding | Indianapolis Barn Wedding | Nick + Kaitlyn

Nick & Kaitlyn met while they were students at Purdue University. Although they had mutual friends, it wasn't until their senior year that they met. Once they did, though, there was an instant connection. 

Kaitlyn was the girl who dreamed about her wedding day her whole life. Even though the rain poured on her wedding day and altered her plans, she was such a trooper. It was still a beautiful wedding. Nick and Kaitlyn focused on what was most important on their big day: each other and their family and friends. 

Here are a few samples of their Indiana Barn Wedding Day at The Barn in Zionsvile.

Thank you so much to everyone who made Nick and Kaitlyn's wedding day special.

Traditional Catholic Wedding with a Galt House Reception | Erika Brown Photography | Josh & Paige

Paige was sitting on the lawn in Louisville enjoying a beautiful day by the river. Soon, a helicopter arrived to take Paige for a surprise ride. Her destination was Lexington where Josh was waiting for her at beautiful castle, ready to propose. Of course, she said yes. 

Their wedding was a beautiful, traditional Catholic ceremony at the church where Paige grew up. Following the ceremony, their reception was held at the historic Galt House Hotel in Louisville where you can't help but imagine that you are living amongst the pages of The Great Gadsby. Their decor was gorgeous muted pinks and gold that blended beautifully with the historic art deco style of the Galt House overlooking the river. Here are a few samples from their day.

Indianapolis Scottish Rite Cathedral Wedding | Erika Brown Photography | Jarret & Lauren

Jarret surprised Lauren with a quick trip to Paris last fall. Little did she know that the even bigger surprise was that the trip was planned as a part of an elaborate, romantic proposal. 

After returning, they began planning their wedding at the gorgeous Scottish Rite Cathedral in downtown Indianapolis. It was a beautiful, grand affair with every detail thoroughly thought out. We loved the beautiful flowers, gorgeous gown, and the amazing antique cars. Here are a few samples from their day:

Indiana University Wedding | Bloomington, Indiana Wedding Photographer | Caleb & Casey

When Caleb and Casey were five years old, they played on the same soccer team. Well, always the competitor, Caleb played, but Casey was much more concerned with holding hands and talking to her friends. Throughout their lives their paths crossed on and off. Often, it involved soccer as Caleb played with Casey's brother and became friends. Finally, at the beginning of their senior year of college at Indiana University, they began dating. In the fall of 2015, Caleb took Casey to the IU soccer field, where he played for 4 years and won a national championship, to propose. Their relationship came full circle to where it began 20 years before. 

We loved being a part of their beautiful, classic wedding in Bloomington with their reception in Franklin Hall right on IU's campus. It was a day filled with beautiful details and wonderful people. Here are a few samples from their day.

Vintage Inspired Backyard Wedding | The Blanton House | Hendricks County Wedding Photographer

Jake and Lauren chose Grove City College in Pennsylvania for their college studies, Lauren from Indiana and Jake from Colorado. When they met their freshman year, they became fast friends. It wasn't until they returned to school the fall of their sophomore year that they began dating. Then, one day, while Lauren was home in Indiana, Jake surprised her by flying out from Colorado to propose in front of the historic home near her house, called the Blanton House. 

It was in the backyard of the Blanton House where they were married in their vintage themed ceremony. They had so many cute details that nodded to their love of travel and history. We loved the historic postcards, china pieces, and antiques incorporated into their day. However, sweetest centerpiece to the wedding was Lauren's decision to be the third generation to wear the same wedding dress without any major alterations! 

It was a great wedding day at a lovely location surrounded by love. Here are a few samples from their day.

Indianapolis Omni Severin Hotel Wedding | Indianapolis City Wedding | Dustin + Christina

Christina had just moved from New Jersey earlier that week, so a grocery shopping trip was in order. As she was placing her order at the deli counter, Dustin noticed her accent and struck up a conversation. He did the only gentlemanly thing and gave her his number so that he could show her around. There is a dispute over who contacted who first, but the fact remains that they went on their first date three days later. That was the beginning of their relationship that they celebrated on their wedding day at the beautiful Omni Severin Hotel in downtown Indianapolis. Here are a few of the samples from their wedding day.

Her wedding dress was absolutely gorgeous! Christina and her sister, who lives in Europe, had a special moment picking out the dress. Her sister was back for Christmas, and, since Dustin proposed right before Christmas, they were able to go shopping together!

They wanted to incorporate elements into their wedding day that honored their parents. Their wedding cake was an exact replica of Dustin's parent's cake, made by the same bakery. They chose to give the same favors to their wedding guests as Christina's parents did at their wedding.

Christina and Dustin both had sweet dances with their parents.

D'Amore Indianapolis Wedding | Indianapolis Chase Tower Wedding | Erika Brown Photography

Michael and Adrienne were married high above Indianapolis at the top of the Chase tower. D'Amore Events was the perfectly elegant location for their wedding with 360 degree views of the city. After getting ready at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown, we walked over to D'Amore to take advantage of the gorgeous light and views. It was a beautiful day all around. Enjoy a sneak peek from their wedding day.
