Lauren & Jared (A Downtown Indianapolis Wedding at the Cyrus Place)


Let me start by saying I love this couple! Jared reached out to me after I had worked with his talented sister for a styled shoot (thanks Melissa! 😉 and after finding out that Lauren loves Disney as much as I do, I knew we were a match made in heaven! Lauren told me she had stopped looking at Pinterest because she loved my work and trusted me to capture the moments of her day. Can I tell you how AMAZING that is?! I knew I liked this girl 😉 

When describing their wedding day, one of the words Jared and Lauren used was magical, and I couldn’t agree more! From the bride’s Haley Paige wedding gown to getting ready at The Alexander and portraits on the cobblestone streets of the Lockerbie District, the day could not have been off to a better start! The ceremony was held at The Cyrus Place, a brand new downtown Indianapolis venue that was decorated beautifully by Detail and Design, who were also the coordinators for the Sparkman’s wedding. Did I mention that Jon McLaughlin was the live music for all of the first dances and performed a set of songs to end the night?!! It really doesn’t get more magical than that!

Mr. & Mrs. Sparkman, your day was truly unforgettable. Everything was beautiful and magical, but what I loved most of all was seeing the two of you together. Watching Jared tear up when he saw Lauren for the first time and kissing her shoulder whenever he had the chance. Seeing the way Lauren’s eyes lit up when she walked down the aisle and the way that Jared could make her laugh. I pray you never lose that romance and joy and that your marriage will continue to impact the lives of everyone you meet. Wishing you only the best and hope you enjoy my favorites from your day!
