All of this winter has me craving some green (I know you are shocked). I posted Jess + Nick's magical wedding photos here, but have not shared their super fun reception with y'all yet! This was really one for the books. Visit my last post (here) to learn about how I met these two awesome humans and why this was such a cool project to work on.
Jess + Nick got married during an intimate ceremony at Irwin Gardens in Columbus, Indiana. Then they went on a killer honeymoon and had their reception when they returned to Indy. I am about 5.5 weeks out from my wedding and thinking they might be smarter than me! In keeping with their creative and laid back ways, they wanted an out-of-the-box celebration and they executed it flawlessly. The celebration was held at my home base, The Hatch. It was the perfect backdrop to see their vision come to life. I created woodland inspired (they love the outdoors and bright colors!) centerpieces that were designed to replicate her bouquet and a greenery hoop installation for their photo booth. The pictures are so freaking fun. I got to work with their coordinator Courtney Colbert who was a hoot and I loved getting know. They had Fitzgerald's cater yummy food and the two cutest cakes from Bon Vivant - driven down from Chicago!! The groom's sister, Lindsay of SassyFras Petals, made the prettiest paper flowers. Such a meaningful touch. Maybe my favorite part? Jess surprised Nick with a new canoe as her gift to him! Love, love, love. What was most evident to me, besides the love between Nick + Jess, was the love and support of their friends. It was such a warm event and I am grateful I got to be a small part of it! The reception photos are a mix of Meagan Lawler (shout out! thanks for sharing girl), photo booth, and my own. They are so much fun to look through - enjoy!

Photo Booth Fun!
Behind the scenes! Can I just say that I had TWO weddings that day and I was solo. I was pretty proud of myself. Cheers to celebrating our own wins, friends!
