What a wedding! Imagine a 4th of July wedding in downtown Indianapolis where the ceremony took place on top of the Sheraton Hotel… it was beautiful! It was a very, very, very hot and humid day here in Indy, but Kari & Brook didn’t complain at all as we trotted through downtown to capture their day. Complete with a horse and buggy carriage ride, a rain-free outdoor ceremony and fireworks to end the evening… Kari & Brook are now married and celebrating their honeymoon in Hawaii. I have to make a special mention of my business partner, primary second photographer and wonderful husband, Jerry for his amazing work at this wedding. He was sweating from head to toe and got some killer shots of his own… not to mention his impeccable support.:)We had so much fun getting to know this couple throughout the year and their wedding party and guests were a blast to be around as well. Enjoy your sneak peek and Congratulations!

Getting Ready…
Shoutout to Makeup by Megan Alexis … it was a pleasure working with you again!





What a beautiful bride!! Kari, you are stunning!



And the groom:)

A great wedding party to work with… they were troopers as we walked through downtown in the super super SUPER hot weather….




You couldn’t beat this view at the ceremony!




They had a candy bar at the reception….how cool is that?! I say the candy screamed for ring shots:)


Love these intimate moments…. *sigh*



There I go… stopping traffic again… hehehehe 😉

This is a great city, by the way.:)


The Sheraton on the circle was a beautiful location for a ceremony and reception. This was the first time we have shot a wedding there and I would highly recommend it! The service was amazing as well.

First dance… love this:)

And the evening ended with the fireworks show back on the deck…. where we had to kick people out of the way LOL! It’s amazing how much power you have with a bride and groom with you and big expensive camera equipment.. haha!:)
