Jessica and Jared - May 8th 2015 - Conrad Indianapolis

A little late getting to this one - A favorite from 2015.
Jessica and Jared sure knew how to throw one amazing wedding! The couple really had an all-star team of wedding professionals and I was thrilled to be a part of it. Both the ceremony and reception were held at the luxurious Conrad hotel in downtown Indianapolis. During the ceremony (music provided by harpist Elizabeth Ahlgrim) they were surrounded by their closest friends and family as they said “Forever” to one another. The room where dinner and dancing took place was dripping with amazing details from corner to corner - Much credit to Boldly Chic Events - Pink up lighting (by Grapevine) around the entire room completed the romantic setting. I don't think I have seen a bride so wide eyed and smiling during the "first look'. The wedding was filled with so many heart-felt and humorous moments it will defiantly be one remembered by everyone in attendance. Jessica and Jared were the first couple to use Grapevine's new DJ-Drummer combo and after dessert, guests danced up a storm as you can see in the video below the photographs by Molly Connor, One of Indy's best photographers! A confetti cannon blast showered the guests during the last dance and then it was time to say good night. Jessica and Jared, thank you for choosing me to play a role on one of the most important days of you lives together … Wishing you all many years of love and laughter and dog kisses : )

Susan and Todd - October 31st 2015 - Crowne Plaza Union Station Indianapolis

Susan and Todd were married last Saturday at Crowne Plaza Union Station in Indianapolis. The smiles on the couples faces says so much about the whole day. Though it was Halloween, the Susan and Todd did not want to have a Halloween themed wedding - They did break out masks for everyone at 10:30 and had me play Michael Jackson's Thriller. The day was non-stop fun and every bit of awesome as I expected. After dinner, a handful of really great toasts welcomed guests and entertained us all, and then the party took over. The dancing was crazy, and so high energy -  Guests danced a solid 3 hours with no let up. One of my favorite moments was the Hora dance; friends and family (mostly non-Jewish) packed the dance floor in a huge circle as the bride and groom were lifted in their chairs and paraded on the dance floor! A sparkler exit completed this magical wedding that was one for the books, and I'm thrilled to have been a part of it.
I also got to work with a couple of my favorite photographers, Cybil and Brandon and they were kind enough to allow me to post some of their awesome photos.
