I’ve been looking forward to Ally and Michael’s day ever since we talked on the phone last year! We hit it off right away and I knew that her day would be absolutely gorgeous from start to finish – and I was right. Ally and her girls got ready in the Gallery Suite of the Conrad in downtown Indianapolis – the suite was filled with light on the top floor of the hotel and famous artwork from Warhol and Picasso adorned the walls. We photographed both of Ally’s wedding dresses and her beautiful Jimmy Choo’s before celebrating with a champagne toast to get the day started!
Their ceremony took place at Sacred Heart, and there wasn’t a dry eye as everyone watched Michael see Ally for the first time in her walk down the aisle. After portraits downtown we headed to the reception at Indiana Roof Ballroom and it was a fairytale come to life! Ally and Michael’s custom monogram was carried from the welcome sign to the stage decor behind the live band. McNamara florist designed stunning centerpieces and a luscious floral runner for the head table to give the room a whimsical and romantic ambiance. The team at Roof Ballroom were incredible – bringing the food out timed to music, spotlighting the first dance and Ally threw her bouquet out of a turret from a balcony – similar to Rapunzels 😉 I loved the custom Coke bottles that were gifted to each guest to ‘Share a Coke with the Clark’s’ and Ally’s dress change for the second half of the reception.
All in all, it was an exquisite day, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have captured these moments for such a fun and sweet couple. Mr. & Mrs. Clark, we loved celebrating you both! You know how to throw a party, and we felt welcomed from beginning to end. Thank you for treating us like family and for inviting us into these special moments. Can’t wait to see you again soon 🙂
