Indianapolis Winter Wedding at D’Amore

We have been snowed in for days and it reminded me of a winter wedding we did last December. It actually was not as cold as expected for a December wedding, but the bride was prepared with a fabulous coat. She didn’t let cold weather get in the way of some great outdoor photos.

The other exciting thing about this wedding is our bride was our January Bridal Show Winner and she won help designing her wedding. One of the comments she had when we first talked was she really liked the long tables full of people. She did not think it would happen, but we showed her how she could mix both rounds and long tables together to create a look just for her. It turned out great and we could not have been more pleased.

Love Stories: Robbie & Stephanie

We are so excited that we get to be sharing some beautiful photos from our August 13th wedding at the Eiteljorg. I met this couple at the end of December last year and worked with them all year to create their perfect day. I enjoyed meeting and working with the whole family and in fact, miss not talking to them on a regular basis. The rain held off that day for the outside ceremony, our only hitch was the practicing bands behind the ceremony site. I think Stephanie’s dad said it best in his welcome speech when he said, “it is hard to get 30 rival bands to play together, but they did for Stephanie’s wedding.” It may not have been ideal but it will be a memory. Please enjoy the photos!

Love Stories: Gary and Tammy

A couple of weekends ago I receive a call from a father asking me if I was available for the August 27th weekend, the call was on August 20th one week away. I was available and I was able to talk to the bride on Sunday night. The problem was their reception was in a gym (not the bride’s first choice, but only one that worked) and the bride did not want it to look like a gym, can you blame her? On Sunday I got her linen order, so I could order linens on Monday. I then did not meet the bride at the site until Tuesday morning. We then came up with a plan on how she wanted the room decorated. Three days later we showed up and made it happen.

What we started with

What we ended up with

 

It is not always easy to design an entire reception room in three days, but we did and the bride and groom were extremely happy (mom and dad too). Here are some more shots from the reception.

Half the Room – Love the Black Table Cloths with Ivory Napkins

Table Shot – Accents of Purple and Green

Fun Idea – The centerpiece at every table was a cake, uuummmm!

Head Table – Adding Drama

The Bride Loved My Ruffle Table – So I gave it to Her

Drama on the Dance Floor – This Helped Transform this Room

We were excited to help this couple realize their wedding dream. Remember, even when you think you have run out of time, there is still a chance you can have what you want. It was hard work, but we are very excited we were able to get this done in less than a week.

What do you think, did we transform the gym?

Love Connections: Laura from the Sheraton Downtown City Centre

Have you been thinking about where you would like to get married or where you would like to have your wedding reception?  The Sheraton Indianapolis City Centre has a wonderful staff and facility that will accommodate you in all your wedding needs!  We had the opportunity to sit down with Laura Buttry from the Sheraton in downtown Indianapolis.  Laura is the catering sales manager and wedding specialist at the Sheraton.  We asked her a few questions pertaining to love.

1)  What do you love about weddings?
-I love seeing the brides excitement when she is talking about her vision and then seeing it come to life on the big day.

2)  What do you love about your business?
-At the Sheraton Indianapolis City Centre, I like how we are a place for people to gather.  We are their home away from home, their family reunion for the year.  I like that they feel comfortable sitting in the lobby just chatting or can relax in the sun by the pool.

3)  What is your love craving and why?
      – I love ice cream. I could eat it any time of the year and in all different flavors.

4)  What do you love about living in Indiana?
-I grew up in a small town and moved to Indy four years ago. I love that by going 15 minutes out of the city, you are back in farm country.  It is so relaxing to leave the city behind and be in nature.

5)  Love Advice
-My love advice is to be real about marriage and love itself.  It is not always roses’ falling from the sky but this is the person that is your partner in life.  They are with you there in the morning when you aren’t looking your best and by your side proudly at the work holiday party.  There are times when you will fight and not want to be around each other but these just make you stronger.  Realize that you are different people and he doesn’t always know what you are thinking so a little hint goes along way.  Always love one another and remember to always kiss good night.
