Caroline and Bobby's Wedding

Caroline and Bobby

Omni Severn Hotel

January 24,2009

YEAH!!! The first wedding of 2009!!! Caroline and Bobby were married last Saturday at the Omni. It was an amazing success. Caroline was so organized and loved personalizing her wedding. She made just about everything herself from her invitations to even the chuppah where her and Bobby exchanged wedding vows! We started setting up for the wedding on Friday. Sonya and the Omni staff were wonderful to work with and was so accommodating with all of our special requests. Caroline did a bridal shoot on Friday before the rehearsal. Doing this was a great idea. Caroline was so relaxed and was able to get some great shots in her soft green wedding dress.

On the wedding day Caroline went to the salon to get her hair done while Cara (my wonderful assistant), the Omni staff and I started setting up the ballrooms. The ceremony was very simple. Mostly all in white. While the ballroom was decorated in tall flowering branch centerpieces, river rocks and fake snow.

Caroline and Bobby are both Purdue alums and so it was only fitting that the wedding carry thru this theme. Tables were named after campus landmarks and the BIG surprise was Purdue Pete (the university's mascot) came and stood as groomsmen. All the guests clapped along to the Purdue Fight song after the couple was pronounced man and wife. Caroline and Bobby decided that instead of doing a traditional receiving line they would greet their guests at dinner, so the couple had a private dinner during cocktail hour. After dinner, the party moved back into the ceremony area where it was transformed into the dancing room. Guests dined on wedding cake by legendary baker Gale Gand and sweet treats from the Omni. Brian Whitis kept the everyone on the dance floor all night! This party ROCKED! A big Thank you to all that helped make this wedding a success.

Congratulations Caroline and Bobby! I wish I had been able to get a photo of Purdue Pete, but he was definitely a highlight of the day. Thanks everyone for an awesome wedding!
