wedding - Bedford, IN

Gooooood afternoon! :) (And happy Friday!) Last week Andy and I photographed Nancy & Sam's incredibly sophisticated wedding in Bedford, IN. The more time we spent with these two, the more we felt like family. Nancy and Sam mastered the perfect balance of putting great emphasis on what mattered most to them. And it was; in a word, wonderful. :)

Their ceremony took place at the beautiful Red Brick at Otis Park.

Nancy incorporated crystals into all facets of the wedding. ;)

The shoes.

The dress.

The blossoms.
Flowers created by the fun ladies at Artful Blooms.

Here's Nancy, being breathtaking. :)

And her amazing ring. Sam did a nice job ;)

I tested the waters and asked if Nancy and Sam minded laying in the grass for a few photos. We knew we were meant to be when they snuggled right up next to each other and took a few minutes to themselves. One from my view...

And one from Andy's. :)

Isn't she one lovely lady!? :)

Speaking of lady... ;)

No words for this one. Just smiles :)

These next few are my absolute favorites of the day.

Andy caught this one. Look at that LIGHT! :)

:) :) (Andy's already told me I've used too many smilies. I don't even care. I love this couple :))

On to the reception! Which was held at the Indiana Memorial Union, on IU's campus in Bloomington.

In the Federal Room. Is this not exquisite!?

More incredible details by Artful Blooms. Nancy and Sam incorporated fresh pears into their decor and into the meal :)

Nancy and Sam, we cannot thank you enough for choosing us to be a part of your memorable, meaningful day.

e-session - Indianapolis, IN

Danielle & Kevin's session was scheduled for a different day this week, but Danielle, being the fabulously organized lady that she is, checked the weather and saw that it was supposed to rain on their session! Story of our LIFE this year! ARGH! And they had already had to cancel their session with us a few weeks ago for the same reason, so we were NOT going to let it happen to us again! (Stupid rain!) SO! We all moved some things around and were able to make today work. I'm sure you loved reading all of that. Details, details. :) On to the photos!

We found some sweet street art. That's one big lady ;)

An Andy set. Isn't he the coolest? :)

This mural is kind of terrifying, but we were diggin' it ;)

Don't worry, they were just cleaning the truck (and we asked permission to stand in front of it, just in case!) We're sticklers for safety :)

Favorite. Such amazing light!

Another favorite. Just hangin' out, takin' a nap in the grass :)

Look at those eyes! GORGEOUS! :)

Love this set :)

SCHOOOOL BUUUUSSSS! I think I must have been shouting that while shooting this. Note the smirk :)

These could be ads for RV's. Or... not ;)

Look at that little spot of catch light Andy caught in her eye. PERFECTION! :)

We finished with some kisses as a tribute to the perfect weather. Thanks Danielle and Kevin! We CAN'T WAIT for your wedding next May! :)
