A Black Tie Wedding at Laurel Hall in Indianapolis

“This day I will marry my friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with, love.”


Kristen + Mat had the most beautiful wedding day at Laurel Hall in Indianapolis, Indiana. Goodness, I felt like I was in a dream! Kristen’s elegant gown and veil paired with Mat’s black tux, so classic! The details keeping its romance ⏤ an illustrative floral invitation suite, gold customized wax seal, neutral florals with a touch of blush, the prettiest daisy perfume and a pair of white wedges.

Kristen got ready in Laurel Hall’s gorgeous bridal suite upstairs, it was so pretty! The large windows with all the natural light, the vintage furniture, and intricate detail in the decor. Laurel Hall has got to be one of my ultimate favorite venues. Their ceremony was so sweet ⏤ as Kristen walked down the aisle, Mats eyes started to tear up. Kristen, you looked so stunning coming down!

I absolutely loved how Kristen + Mat held dinner outside as the sun was setting, it made for the dreamiest images! But once dinner was finished, the party headed inside to have some fun and begin the events. The Mr + Mrs were surrounded by one of the best parties, I was blown away by the excitement. The dance floor was on fire and I also want to give props to the DJ for making that happen as well. If you’re looking for an amazing DJ, check out Troy Miller! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! It was seriously one of the most fun receptions to be a part of!

Kristen + Mat,

I had so much fun photographing your wonderful love, you two have such kind hearts and made me feel so welcome! I cannot thank you enough for having me be a part of this journey with you both. I wish you the best of wishes on your new adventure together!! Congratulations you two!!
