Michelle & Philip

Congrats Michelle & Philip!  What a dream wedding day you had Saturday.  Every detail was perfect...and the smiles and the love you and family shared were beyond perfection.  The day started out in the cutest little AirBnB with all the lovely ladies getting ready.  Just look at that gorgeous bride and all the twirling girls with bouncing curls!  Philip gave Michelle the sweetest gifts, handmade with his amazing woodworking skills...and a few whoopee cushions to keep the laughs rolling throughout the day.  What a fun couple!

While the ladies were getting ready, the guys had a different kind of getting ready to do... complements of Bier Brewery (and a bit of apple juice for the shorter guys).  What a great group of guys, with Philip's dad as best man.  A few toasts, drinks, and then off to finish off the last minute details, which included Jack Donuts - so creative!  Philip's wood working skills once again shined with the donut holders and the beautiful box for the wine, which they later sealed during the ceremony with a bottle of their favorite from Peace Water Winery.  The thoughtful details of this wedding were overflowing.

And now for the first look.  She surprised him from behind, and they enjoyed the moment among friends and family with tons of laughs, a few tears, and gorgeous twirls.  Afterwards, families came together for a few pictures before the guests began arriving.  Don't miss the fun socks below, along with tons of other details which capture the day.

Once all guests arrived at the beautifully unique SpeakEasy Indy, the ceremony began.  Simple, sweet, and elegant.  Afterwards the celebration began with some fun pictures with the bridal party, lawn games outside, and a casual cocktail hour.

The first dance was just perfection, and then the food truck opened it's window!  5280 Bistro served up deliciously unique meals including the Groominator and Bridezilla sandwiches.  Just look at those creations!  The dancing continued, interrupted only by cutting the cake.  The day was a true party...celebrating this new marriage and all the friends and family joining to support Michelle & Philip.
