Amy & Rick

Amy and Rick
September 8,2007
WOW! What a wedding. The day started off early at Mavris Arts and Event Center, unloading 142 pounds of white unscented candles, wine bottles and far too many wine corks for one person to count. The Christmas Light Pros were already there setting up. And John, Amanda and the rest of Mavris gang were dropping linens and cleaning up the room for the night's event. Things really started moving when Lindsey, our intern got there. Chad even swooped in and saved the day when the parents realized that they forgot the escort cards (Sorry about the speeding ticket).
Amy was beautiful in her ivory gown coupled with her cathedral length veil that has been passed down from generation to generation. The ceremony took place at Christ Church Cathedral. The couple had 9 of their closest friends standing up with them. Although, the day was raining it didn't bother either one them. We were even lucky enough to get some outside shots.
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed drinks and hors'duvoers on the 1st floor of Mavris. They also took Polaroids of each other and wrote in Amy and Rick's guest book. After the couple took a sneak peek of the room, they invited everyone to join them upstairs for dinner and dancing. After the cake cutting ceremony, Amy and Rick both wrote a speech for one another, there wasn't a dry eye when they finished. Both speeches were so touching and showed how much they really loved each other.
At the end of the evening guests grabbed a cab back to their hotel and a favor bag filled with Krispy Kreme doughnuts. The evening was magical, another great wedding.

Autumn & Brian

September 2, 2007

I FORGOT MY CAMERA! This wedding was amazing and I can't believe I forgot my camera. Autumn's mom sent me these photos that a family friend captured. Let me first say that my prayers were answered and the CCP tradition lives on; Autumn and Brian were married OUTSIDE in the White River Gardens at the Indianapolis Zoo. It was about 85 degrees and as Autumn and her father walked down the aisle I got chills. She was beautiful and the Gardens were too. A chiffon arbor hung over the couple as they exchanged their vows. The cocktail hour and reception were held at the Five Star Conrad Hotel. As guests got off the elevator they saw a long table of wheat grass with placecards on top. Autumn and Brian took a sneak peek at the ballroom before the first guest arrived. I knew my job was complete when she said, "I never thought it would look this beautiful". There were high and low centerpieces, a monogram gobo shining on the wall behind the band, and chandeliers hanging down giving off just the right amount of light . Just like the ceremony the ballroom space was gorgeous. Guests enjoyed dinner and danced into the night. At the end of evening everyone threw tiny heart-shaped candy marshmallows as the newlyweds got into a horse and carriage for a ride around the city. How sweet! I also want to thank my team of professionals;you all did a great job!
