An Oliver Inn Wedding. A Tippecanoe Place Wedding Reception. An intimate gathering of family and close friends. A day to remember.

The Couple

You may remember Miles and Cat from their engagement session a few months ago. They’re the faces behind Cat Alkire Photography, and we’ve been so honored to get to know them as they’ve planned their wedding. If you remember, they met on MySpace and had common “friends.” They dated long distance before Miles made the move to Indiana. Watching these two interact is heartwarming. Their love RADIATES. I think Troy and I were both crying during their first look :).

The Wedding

I always wonder how I would plan my wedding differently now that I’m a wedding photographer. I play that game of “if I were to choose a dress today, which one would I choose?….” Cat and Miles got to live my dream :). They knew they wanted a small, intimate wedding with their closest friends and family. They chose two perfect venues that complimented the ease of their day so well. The spared no details– Cat’s lettered invitations,  Miles’ custom suit, an incredible tablescape planned and executed by Cat and her florist, Always N Bloom, ITALIAN WEDDING COOKIES– what more can I say?!

Here’s a few of our favorites from their perfect October day…

We’ve been a little quiet on the blog recently, but we’re back with a Marion, Indiana engagement session that we’re excited to share with you!

Andrew and Cecilia don’t live in Central Indiana anymore so imagine how thrilled we all were when the evening and temperature were PERFECT for our session. We had our plan and locations in place, and can I just tell you how excited I was to pass by the architecture on this building and see it in a new light?! I drive by this building at least once a week so how have I never noticed it before?!

These two met as Freshman at Purdue so I love that they’re going to get married on campus next September. Once again, we believe wholeheartedly we have the privilege of photographing the most amazing couples and Andrew and Cecilia are no exception! Here’s a few of our favorites:
