Alex and Sam's wedding this past weekend was undeniably the hottest wedding I have ever shot. You would think that spending 8 hours in the 100F heat and 1000& humidity would be miserable but incredibly it was the exact opposite. Alex and Sam were surrounded by so much love from friends and family who were over the moon to watch them tie the knot that the energy was off the charts. The accumulated energy was magnetic. The Laughter, the dancing, the emotional tears. All of it just seemed to make the usually oppressive heat a non issue. Its clear that Alex and Sam have worked hard not only on their own relationship but with the relationships between family and their friends. Their wedding was lighting in a bottle.
Brittney and Brian shared their wedding date with another wedding. The royal wedding. A wedding where the bride is about as close to a true princess as someone could be but I would argue that Brittney and Brian had the truly royal wedding. Their wedding was packed with personal details including their love for Disney and Brittneys love for Disney Princesses. Brittney and Brian proved that you dont have to have royal blood running through your veins or have your wedding televised for the world to see to have a royal wedding. All you need is to be surrounded by close friends and family. Their wedding sure looked royal to me.

You want your wedding to be personal and intimate to who you are as a couple. You want elements of your wedding day to reflect what makes you two unique and bad ass. Maybe you are serving donuts instead of a traditional cake, or you might be planning to have your bridesmaids walk down the aisle with puppies in their arms instead of bouquets of flowers. You want your wedding to be uniquely your own so why not pick a wedding venue that is as unique as you are and will show off your personalities. Luckily Indianapolis has no shortage of incredible wedding and reception venues that are as unique as you are! Have you been to a wedding at any of the venues below? Leave a comment at the end of what you thought to help other brides make the right choice!
I’m not kidding! You get married at the zoo! How cool is that? The zoo is an incredible venue with some amazing perks! First it’s in a great location downtown. Close to plenty of hotels for your guests. Because It’s in a great location you will also get some incredible views of the Indianapolis skyline which is magical at night! Having your wedding at the zoo also means that you’re helping the efforts to protect endangered wildlife with their conservation efforts. And my favorite reason why anyone would have their wedding at the zoo, you get private access to the WORLD’S only underwater dolphin viewing dome! Think of how great those photos are going to turn out! To find out more about how to have your Wedding at the zoo, CLICK HERE!
This place is incredible. It’s almost 16,000 sq feet! You can fit 2 major league baseball diamonds inside of this place! If you are looking for a wedding venue with history and want to make a grand entrance- this is the place for you! Also in the heart of downtown just two blocks from the Soldiers and Sailors' Monument there will be plenty of hotels for your guests to stay with no worry about who is driving where when the night is over. It really is a sight to be seen and will leave a lasting impression on all of your guests! To find out more about how to have your Wedding at the Indiana Roof Ballroom, CLICK HERE
Were you the kind of girl growing up who loved spending time playing outside not caring if you got a little dirty? Were you a Summer Camp junkie? Well Jameson Camp might be the right answer for you! Off bridgeport road near Avon this place is a diamond in the rough! It’s a bonafide summer camp for Indianapolis’ at risk youth! They are helping mold our future leaders today! Having your wedding on this beautiful piece of property is like a breath of fresh air. Surrounded by trees, streams, rope courses, and gardens- these spacious log cabin fits right in! And like the zoo, you can know that by having your wedding here you are helping out a great cause! To find out more about how to have your wedding at Jameson Camp, CLICK HERE!
Do you lust after the old plantation wedding venues you would find in Georgia or the Carolinas? Mustard Seed Gardens might be right for you! Just North of Fishers, Mustard Seed Gardens is a large venue with 5 meticulously landscaped areas for you two to say “I Do”. Their “Olde Barn” is large enough to accommodate up to 200 guests and is perfect in the later months when it starts to get cold earlier in the evening. “The Maple Tree” couldn't be a more picturesque if you’re having a evening ceremony. Right as the sun is starting to set and the sky starts to turn into the beautiful colors Indiana is known for.. Now, THAT is the perfect time to tie the knot. To find out how to have your wedding at Mustard Seed Gardens, CLICK HERE!
The Community Life Center has to be the most unique on this list because it is also a funeral home! But before you make any rash decisions, hear me out. The Community Life Center is beautifully landscaped, has an incredible indoor space for guests, spots for dancing with large windows, has more chandeliers than Buckingham Palace AND it’s generally cheaper and has much better availability than some of the more traditional wedding venues here in Indy. I highly encourage you to entertain the idea and go for a tour. To find out how to have your wedding at the Community Life Center, CLICK HERE!
No matter where you get married in Indianapolis, it will be uniquely yours. Your day will be special and memorable for all involved, especially you and your groom. But a badass venue couldn’t hurt.
If you're looking for a wedding photographer who focuses on your unique relationship shoot me an email. I typically book weddings 10-12 months in advance so don't wait!
Marissa & Ryan's wedding this past weekend was one of the most challenging weddings I've ever shot. It was also one of the easiest. Marissa was hoping for snow (and so was I!) but we got rain all day, the churches beautiful European charm was equally matched by how dim it was inside, and the reception was split between what felt like an endless amount of stairs. But you know what I didn't care about any of that because Marissa and Ryan's wedding day was so full of personal connections. Between friends who traveled great distances and family who would go to the end of the earth of each of them, made a little rain or a few stairs simply did not matter. The amount of energy and excitement these two brought to their wedding day was infectious and something I will remember for a long time.
