B & B say " I Do"

Laurel Hall

June 26,2010

AHHHHH!!!!! Well as some of you may know Circle City Planners had SIX weddings over the past weekend. We had one on Friday and FIVE on Saturday!!! All the weddings went off without a hitch!!!!! WTG team CCP!

Brookley and Bart were our first June 26th couple and we worked together on all the aspects of their wedding! They both live in Chicago so much of the planning was done over email and on the phone. The couple came down to Indy a few times during their engagement for all day planning sessions!!! We had so much fun!

When I first met Brookley, she told me she loved the color purple. We accented the wedding with platinum and vanilla. Brookley also told me she wanted a vintage wedding. So we used feathers and crystals in the floral decor. Laurel Hall was the perfect spot to pull together this plum, vintage wedding.

The day of wedding everyone was so relaxed. Spring (Brookley's mom) was a little nervous but I reassured her that all was well and she had nothing to worry about. The ceremony was set to be outside, there was a small chance of rain but Laurel Hall has a beautiful chapel upstairs so I knew everything would be okay even if it rained. BUT it didn't. After I left Spring's house, I went to check on my team. Carrie, Ashley, Stacy and Megan were on top of everything. They all worked together to setup everything and the flowers and decor looked AMAZING. Way to go Circle City Designers. Brookley and Bart decided to see each other before the ceremony so Andrew Scallini was able to take some FANTASIC shots. He even worked late into the night and sent me over these pictures.

The ceremony was simple but looked beautiful. We used a custom white branch arch from Tom's custom trees. This time it didn’t tip over!! The air was filled with sounds from Jan Alridge and her wonderful harp. Everyone was able to hear Brookley and Bart's vows with the help of Evans Audio Visual. There wasn't a dry eye in the crowd.

After the ceremony guests mingled on the terrace and sipped on fruit infused champagne and munched on hors d'oevres. Hoaglin Fine Caterers catered the event and the lobster nachos were a hit! They also had fun playing Brookley and Bart trivia on the personalized cocktail napkins. Afterwards, guests then gathered in the foyer for the grand entrance. Brookely's dad, Tyler gave a heartfelt speech. For dinner, Brookley wanted to do food stations instead of a formal sit down dinner. Again, Hoaglin did a GREAT job! We had a mashed potato bar, a craving station and salad station. Hoaglin even baked the 3-tiered cheesecake. We dressed it up with ribbon, flowers and we added bride and groom penguins to the top!! They are Brookley's favorite animals. After that Chris Burger from Copper moon Entertainment took over and the dance floor was rockin all night long! Later in the evening, we served bar food! Jalapeno poppers, quesadillas and french fries! They were quite the hit with all the guests.

This wedding and reception ROCKED. Everyone involved did an AMAZING job!!! Brookley and Bart could not of been happier. The couple is now off to St. Lucia for their honeymoon!
