jane + matt :: indianapolis new year's eve wedding
Most people celebrate New Years Eve with confetti, hats, and libations of the bubbly variety. But instead of that this year Matt + I rang in the New Year with this lovely couple. Jane + Matt live in Massachusetts but most of Matt's family lives here in Indianapolis. Because of this they decided to have a very intimate wedding with 30 of their closest family and friends on New Year Eve at The Conrad Indianapolis Hotel. It was a beautifully simple cermony in The Conrad's art museum.
This is one of my favorite photos of them. So happy to finally be married after all of the planning + craziness of this day!
Check out the rest of their New Years Eve celebration!
Jane had picked out some amazing fashion details for her wedding. Her champagne colored dress and sparkly champagne shoes really spoke to the celebration of the New Year! If I wore heels more often these would be perfect for my style! Love them!
Her bracelet and earrings were also some favorites of mine. Apparently the lady at Bloomingdale's told Jane that "bride's don't wear bangles." I don't know what she was thinking but I loved this bangle bracelet and these earrings. They totally fit her style!
Simply beautiful white and green bouquet. Not much to say other than I love this!
I loved the big windows in their hotel suite. Great for natural light + details! Loved their rings all together.
Yes, Jane cried like a baby during the ceremony when Matt's Aunt said some special words. Love happy those tears look!
Finally, the kiss! Probably one of my favorite first kiss photos. It's like its from a movie or something! Look at you two actor-lookin' fools!
After the ceremony we took some time to walk around the beautiful Conrad Hotel and grabbed some photos of just the two of them. The one of the blown glass chandelier in the lobby with her flowers is one of my faves. I love that chandelier.
I love these indivdual shots of the two of them. They both look so schnazzy!
Jane picked out these super cute chair signs for their spot at the head table. They actually sat with their family at a round table. So having these adorable signs to designate their spots at the table were such a great idea!
After cocktail hour, dinner, and coffee at The Conrad the party moved to The Colts Grille just across Illinois off of Washington Street. A quick walk and everyone was off to the after party! Jane had a great time dancing and goofing around to the music while waiting for the hour of the New Year!
Finally when the New Year came everyone kissed, cheered, and danced welcoming 2013! I caught this wonderful photo of Jane + Matt sharing a moment ringing in 2013! What a great way to end a great night!
Thank you for allowing me to spend this super fun, festive, special day! It was a truly special day and I had such a wonderful time spending the day with you!
