Natalie and Tom! Indianapolis, Indiana Wedding Photography
“Your love is bright as ever
Even in the shadows” – John Mayer
Natalie and Tom and their beautiful Indianapolis Central Library wedding are HERE!!!!
And what a spectacularly beautiful day! I LOVED photographing them and spending time with their awesome crew of bridesmaids, groomsmen, and best women ;).
I’m going to take a moment here and just let you know that green is one of my least favorite colors, but HOLY COW, how much do I LOVE their color scheme. Maybe it’s the beautiful deep green that they chose for those dresses? Maybe it’s that green with Natalie’s awesome red hair? Maybe it’s those beautiful bouquet colors? I don’t know, but I’m so much in love with it all!
Natalie and Tom did a first look, and if you read below, both the first look AND walking down the aisle were their favorite parts of the day [her for the first look and him for her walking down the aisle]. Lot’s of people think first looks take away from the aisle feeling, and here’s a pretty good example of how both moments of their day were incredibly special and wonderful in their own way.
Things I loved about this wedding: the colors [duh], that one groomsman who was all “Turn it UP!” basically the entire day [yay!!!], the adorable ring bearer [Tom’s nephew], who was so fun and charming throughout the day, but when it came time to walk down the aisle got a bit freaked out and cried the whole way walking towards Tom and the other groomsmen, while his sister the flower girl followed close behind with a bit of a bewildered look on her face, the AMAZING location [it feels like it fit Natalie and Tom PERFECTLY], the beautiful weather, and the awesome party!
Natalie and Tom, we’re so grateful you found and hired us to photograph your wedding day! We loved spending the day with you and wish you all the best for your first year of husband and wife!
PS: Special shout out to Ashley, awesome second shooter for the day!
