Boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! I am so excited to share with you Anna & Zach’s beautiful wedding at St. John’s Catholic Church and The Mavris Arts and Event Center in Indianapolis. This wedding was definitely a stunner of a day!! I had so much fun hanging out with these two and their giant wedding party from all over the world! That’s right! ALL. OVER. THE. WORLD. If you remember correctly from their engagement session Anna and Zach live in sunny California! Anna being from Indiana and Zach being from St. Louis and then traveling to LA one can imagine their friends they chose to stand with them on their wedding day are from all over. People flew in from all parts of the United States and the Best Man and his wife (also a bridesmaid) flew in from LONDON to be with them! Honestly though, that just shows how amazing Anna and Zach are! Here I thought I was lucky to be able to travel out last year to meet them for their engagement session and photograph them on the Venice Canals Walkway and El Matador Beach in Malibu! Definitely a fun time! I seriously could have photographed there all day! But I digress…
Anna and Zach met while they were both working together in Chicago back in 2010. They were in the same new employee orientation group and then their cubicles ended up being right next to each other. I’m not sure if their office KNEW they were playing match maker… but they definitely were! Haha! After meeting on that first day at their new jobs it was history from there. They’ve been by each other’s side ever since! Including moving out to LA together when Zach needed to finish school! Which he just did! Which is SUPER cool. He even traveled to China for a little while to study. Super rad. I’m kinda jelly!
This wedding was full of all sorts of fun things! Like, Anna’s LOVE of all things The Colts and Peyton Manning. A donut wall in lieu of a traditional cake. A stunning dress and shoes from BHLDN. Gorgeous dusty purple long bridesmaid dresses. Bridesmaid prep at The Alexander Hotel. The most gorgeous organic florals from Lauren Brown of Woven Blooms. A fun reception at The Mavris including some of the best toasts I’ve seen in a long time, emotional songs, dancing, and corn hole in the garden. So basically you just need to check out this wedding and see all that there is to offer because I’m pretty much in love with it! Go on now! Go!
