Jessica and Matt’s Wedding

If I had three words to describe Jessica it would be calm, kind and wonderful.  I met Jessica when she was in middle school and she played volleyball for me at GCA.  She was always so kind to everyone with such a gentle spirit and a smile that would light up a room.  I loved watching her grow from a little middle school girl into a beautiful high school girl (with a killer volleyball serve) and then seeing her head off to my alma mater – Asbury University!  Now Jess is all grown up and married to Matt – the love of her life!  I’m seriously starting to feel so old.  They were married a few weeks ago on June 3rd.  The girls started their day with hair and makeup at Robert’s Salon and Day Spa (which is owned by Jessica’s precious dad, Robert).  After that, we drove down to Martinsville to Jessica’s home church for photos before the ceremony.  I tell ya, it was pretty hot that day but luckily half of the bridal party was from Texas so they said the heat was nothing compared to what they are used to, ha!  The ceremony was perfect and completely focused on Christ.  And we ended the day with an amazing reception which took place in Jessica’s parent’s back yard.  It was an awesome party – filled with sweet moments that made you cry and crazy moments that made you laugh.  I’m so honored every time I get to photograph someone’s wedding day.  Thank you, Jess and Matt, for allowing me to be a part of your big day.  I’m so happy for you and can’t wait to see what your future holds.  Congrats!2017-06-23_00012017-06-23_00022017-06-23_00042017-06-23_00052017-06-23_00072017-06-23_00082017-06-23_00092017-06-23_00102017-06-23_00112017-06-23_00122017-06-23_00132017-06-23_00142017-06-23_00152017-06-23_00162017-06-23_00172017-06-23_00182017-06-23_00212017-06-23_00202017-06-23_00222017-06-23_00232017-06-23_00242017-06-23_00252017-06-23_00262017-06-23_00272017-06-23_00282017-06-23_00292017-06-23_00302017-06-23_00312017-06-23_00322017-06-23_02242017-06-23_00352017-06-23_00362017-06-23_00372017-06-23_00382017-06-23_00392017-06-23_00402017-06-23_00422017-06-23_00432017-06-23_00442017-06-23_00452017-06-23_00462017-06-23_00472017-06-23_00492017-06-23_00502017-06-23_00512017-06-23_00522017-06-23_00532017-06-23_00542017-06-23_00552017-06-23_00562017-06-23_00572017-06-23_00582017-06-23_00592017-06-23_00612017-06-23_00622017-06-23_00632017-06-23_00642017-06-23_00652017-06-23_00662017-06-23_00672017-06-23_00682017-06-23_00702017-06-23_00712017-06-23_00722017-06-23_00752017-06-23_00762017-06-23_00772017-06-23_00782017-06-23_00792017-06-23_00812017-06-23_00822017-06-23_00832017-06-23_00842017-06-23_00852017-06-23_00862017-06-23_00872017-06-23_00882017-06-23_00892017-06-23_00912017-06-23_00922017-06-23_00932017-06-23_00942017-06-23_00952017-06-23_00962017-06-23_00972017-06-23_00982017-06-23_01002017-06-23_01012017-06-23_01022017-06-23_01032017-06-23_01062017-06-23_01072017-06-23_01082017-06-23_01092017-06-23_01102017-06-23_01112017-06-23_01122017-06-23_01132017-06-23_01142017-06-23_01152017-06-23_01162017-06-23_01172017-06-23_02212017-06-23_02222017-06-23_02232017-06-23_01212017-06-23_01222017-06-23_01232017-06-23_01242017-06-23_01262017-06-23_01292017-06-23_01302017-06-23_01312017-06-23_01322017-06-23_01332017-06-23_01342017-06-23_01352017-06-23_01362017-06-23_01372017-06-23_01422017-06-23_01392017-06-23_01402017-06-23_01412017-06-23_01432017-06-23_01442017-06-23_01452017-06-23_01462017-06-23_01472017-06-23_01482017-06-23_01492017-06-23_01502017-06-23_01512017-06-23_01522017-06-23_01532017-06-23_01542017-06-23_01552017-06-23_01562017-06-23_01572017-06-23_01582017-06-23_01592017-06-23_01602017-06-23_01612017-06-23_01622017-06-23_02252017-06-23_01642017-06-23_01662017-06-23_01712017-06-23_01722017-06-23_01732017-06-23_01752017-06-23_01762017-06-23_01772017-06-23_01782017-06-23_01792017-06-23_01802017-06-23_01812017-06-23_01822017-06-23_01832017-06-23_01842017-06-23_01852017-06-23_01862017-06-23_01872017-06-23_01882017-06-23_01892017-06-23_01902017-06-23_01912017-06-23_01922017-06-23_01932017-06-23_01942017-06-23_01952017-06-23_01962017-06-23_01972017-06-23_01982017-06-23_01992017-06-23_02002017-06-23_02012017-06-23_02022017-06-23_02032017-06-23_02042017-06-23_02052017-06-23_02062017-06-23_02072017-06-23_02082017-06-23_02092017-06-23_02102017-06-23_02112017-06-23_02122017-06-23_02132017-06-23_02142017-06-23_02152017-06-23_02162017-06-23_02172017-06-23_02182017-06-23_0219

  

Heather and Aaron

I don’t even know where to start to tell you how much fun this couple is to be around.  I met Heather years ago when I photographed her brother’s wedding and I immediately wanted to be her best friend.  Heather is soooo much fun!  She is full of laughter and smiles and if that isn’t enough to make you love her – add on the fact that her spirit is caring, loving and giving.  She is an encourager and a cheerleader and uses words to describe things in such awesome detail that I swear she needs to become a writer.  She has a voice of an angel and you actually may have heard her sing around the city at various events.  Then there is Aaron.  I met Aaron at the engagement session and immediately knew why Heather fell in love with him.  I loved watching them interact with one another.  The laughter and the jokes were adorable.  They way he looked at her, made me smile and when he held her – it was nothing short of perfection.  And did I mention how gorgeous of a couple they are???  So, yes, I’m pretty darn excited for their October wedding.  It’s going to be a great day.  But for now – lets just enjoy some images from their engagement session.  Congrats, Heather and Aaron!  Thank you for allowing me to capture your love in photographs.  2017-06-15_01592017-06-15_01602017-06-15_01622017-06-15_01632017-06-15_01642017-06-15_01702017-06-15_01712017-06-15_01732017-06-15_01742017-06-15_01752017-06-15_01802017-06-15_01822017-06-15_01832017-06-15_01862017-06-15_01872017-06-15_01892017-06-15_01912017-06-15_01932017-06-15_01952017-06-15_01982017-06-15_02002017-06-15_02012017-06-15_02042017-06-15_02052017-06-15_02062017-06-15_02072017-06-15_02092017-06-15_02102017-06-15_02132017-06-15_02142017-06-15_02152017-06-15_02162017-06-16_00012017-06-15_02202017-06-15_02212017-06-15_02222017-06-15_02232017-06-15_02242017-06-15_02252017-06-15_0226

  

Andrea and Elijah’s Wedding

I fell head over heels for this couple when I photographed their engagement session last November (check it out here!).  I was sitting here trying to think of the best way to explain how awesome this couple is and then it hit me.  I could tell you about their centerpieces for their reception.  At first glance you would think they were just beautiful flowers in normal vases.  But if you got closer, you would notice a little sign by each vase explaining that this sweet couple had to do a long distance relationship for almost 3 years.  The vases for the centerpieces are from various occasion when Elijah sent flowers to Andrea during their time apart.  And if that wasn’t enough to make you say “Awe!” the sign went on to tell you what each vase’s occasion was.  For example – Birthday, Valentine’s Day,  Just Because, Sorry that I Ruined the Ending of the Good Wife, etc.  The fact that Elijah sent her so many flowers is simply wonderful and the fact that Andrea kept every single vase and remembered the occasion for each one makes me smile.  So, now you know a little bit about how wonderful these two people are and they are even more wonderful together as a couple.  Their wedding took place on May 28th at the Montage on the North side of Indy.  It was a beautiful, quaint, small wedding in the outdoor garden with a yummy reception filled with omelets, waffles, donuts and coffee!  Thank you guys for letting me be a small part of your wedding day!  Congrats.
