Franklin Hillview Country Club Fall Wedding // Miranda & Jordan

“You and me together, we could do anything, Baby. You and me together yes, yes.” // Dave Matthews Band

A few weeks ago (gosh almost a month ago!) I was lucky enough to photograph a couple tie the knot in Franklin, IN at the Hillview Country Club. This duo have not just been a wonderful couple but I seriously feel like we’ve all become friends. We had such a wonderful time bonding during their engagement session in Bloomington on the IU campus where they both graduated from! After that I knew we would have so much fun at their wedding! Spoiler Alert: I was right. We had a flipping blast.

Miranda + Jordan met at The Ale Emporium while they were both watching a basketball game featuring their beloved IU Hoosiers. Although the team lost, they ended up winning and falling in love. Now two years later I get to show you guys all how stinkin’ adorable they are. They’re seriously the coolest. And their fall wedding filled with shades of purple, white, and orange was one heckuva good time. So come on over, pull up a chair, and check out this duo. You know you wanna...

Sharpsville Kelley Agricultural Historical Museum Blush Rustic Wedding // Toni & Miah

“Yeah we’re home. That’s what you feel like, home. Yeah girl, you’re the only one who gets me.” // Charles Kelley

Toni + Miah’s big day at The Kelley Agricultural Historical Museum was one heckuva day! I only wish I could have spent the whole day with them myself! Thanks to the amazing work of Rachel Law and Robin Shannon I was able to photograph another wedding on the same day as Toni and Miah’s while these two gals took the utmost care of documenting this duo’s memories! Their sweet, simple, and fun blush rustic wedding definitely looked like a good time! When I finally got to go through all of their photos and edit them!

I met Toni + Miah last year at Mackenzie + Casey’s wedding. Toni was Mackenzie’s maid of honor while I’m pretty sure I met Miah while he was driving a golf cart! :-D Throughout the night I watched the two of them interact, dancing together and having fun at the wedding. Already knowing that they owned a house together I knew it wouldn’t be long before they got engaged. It was only a couple weeks later when Miah proposed to Toni at what she thought was her birthday dinner. I’m so glad I met them at the wedding because even though I was already booked for the wedding date the ultimately picked we found a way to make it work and we got to work together at least in some capacity!

These two are just so sweet and fun loving. I loved spending the time I did get to spend with them and I am so happy I was able to help them out to the best of my abilities for their super fun big day!

Zionsville Greek Orthodox Palomino Ballroom Wedding // Cara & Nick

“Been more smiles than there's been tears, been more good than bad years. Ain’t it crazy baby how we got here, and it all started with a beer.” // Frankie Ballard 

Opa!! I’m so excited to share with you guys Cara + Nick’s big, fat, fun, crazy, super fun, and awesome Greek wedding! It was so cool to be part of this interesting ceremony for this duo. I loved all of the traditions of Cara + Nick’s Greek Orthodox wedding ceremony. I had never photographed a Greek Orthodox wedding but I was thrilled and honored to be at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox church in Carmel last Saturday. We had some undesirable rain up until the end of the ceremony but once the ceremony commenced the rain cleared, the sun came out, the sky was blue and it was a gorgeous evening from then on out! The weather here in Indiana this spring has definitely given me a run for my money with all of it’s ups and downs but we’ve made it work every time!!

Cara + Nick were surrounded by amazing friends and family from all over the United States and Worldwide! Intertwining Nick’s rich Greek culture with both of their love for friends, family, and a good time the wedding resulted in a wonderful event with smiles, laughter, and happy tears. So pour a shot of Mystique and cheer OPA because it’s about to get real Greek up in here on the Team JSP blog!

Noblesville Mill Top Glam Fall Wedding // Kim & Matt

“Love doesn’t like being left alone for long. But come home and love is always happy to see you.” // How Falling in Love Is Like Owning A Dog by Taylor Mali

Last October I had the distinct pleasure of working with some of the sweetest people ever at their big day at The Mill Top Banquet and Conference Center in Noblesville. It was a fun day full of friends and family celebrating Kim + Matt coming together at a beautiful fall wedding surrounded by exposed brick, gorgeous flowers, and twinkle lights. I met Kim + Matt through my past bride and groom Laura + Jon. I remember Kim’s red hair swinging around on the dance floor at their wedding and her own wedding was no exception. These two adorable gingers tied must be well loved because they tied the knot to a packed house and danced the night away surrounded by tons of people!

Downtown Indianapolis Regions Tower Fall Wedding // Lindsey & Dave

“Tell me that you want me, and I’ll be yours completely, for better or for worse.” // Kodaline

My oh my, oh my, oh my! This wedding ladies and gentleman. This wedding is definitely up there in like top five favorite weddings from last year. Not to say anything bad AT ALL about my other weddings from 2015. I love each and every one of my clients. They are all amazing and beautiful people committing themselves to each other for life. That in itself is the reason why I do what I do. To tell love stories. But when you have a super fun loving couple paired with an equally fun wedding party, more time for photos than I’ve ever known what to do with, delicious food, heart warming toasts, a sunset, AND a beautiful rainbow come together into one amazing wedding. Well it’s every photographers dream.

Lindsey + Dave are possibly some of the sweetest people I’ve ever met! One of my favorite things is when my clients become my friends and I feel like Lindsey and I are sisters from another mister! (P.S. She sends the best snapchats of usually one of three things: her/her & Dave at a sporting event, her super sweet pup, or whatever alcoholic drink she is enjoying at that time. Needless to say, I love her and her snaps.) But I digress... Lindsey and Dave tied the knot on what appeared to be a cold, windy, overcast day in our beautiful capital city Indianapolis. On the fifth floor of the Region’s Tower they exchanged vows, shed tears, danced, laughed, and had the best of times celebrating their nuptials. By the end of their ceremony we thought we weren’t going to have much more than some orangey clouds in the distance for a sunset. But low and behold the clouds cleared and not only did we have an exquisite sunset but a rainbow! A flippin’ rainbow y’all. It was great. Aside from all of the amazing things any photographer would dream of having on a wedding day, I was absolutely honored to be there and witness and document their memories. I feel lucky to have met and been chosen by them and working with them has truly reminded me of why I love what I do.

Anderson Intimate & Rustic Barn at Hawks Point Wedding // Kerri & Jonny

Cowboy Boots, Teal, Maroon, & Owls...

You betchya. All those things fit beautifully together one Sunday afternoon for Kerri + Jonny’s wedding at The Barn at Hawks Point in Anderson, IN. The duo traded their handwritten vows in an intimate ceremony at the barn’s beautiful outdoor ceremony space. It was a wonderfully fun day that I was so incredibly honored to document for my past college “hallway mate” aka “wingman.” Kerri and I go way back even before college having a mutual friend from childhood. But it was in college at Ball State University where we lived across the hall from each other that we truly bonded. Even after many fun times going to dorm sponsored black light parties and “studying” in the study lounge I never would have though back then I would be photographing her wedding! It was so wonderful to get to know Jonny and see her family again through this process!

Kerri + Jonny’s wedding was a fun mix of Kerri’s bold personality mixed with Jonny’s flair for the rustic. Complete with bright teal and lovely maroon, her love of owls, his love of feathers, sports team loves, cowboy boots, and wood slices. Their wedding was just full of personal touches. And I was so glad to be there to document it!

Cicero Bright & Fun Backyard Wedding // Mackenzie & Casey

"Nothing can bring a real sense of security into a home except true love." // Billy Graham

My most favorite thing about Mackenzie and Casey's wedding is it started at home. Held on Mackenzie's parents property, where the couple spent a lot of their time. The couple exchanged vows on the bride's parents' front porch surrounded by 200 of their closest family and friends. Yes, two. hundred. Trust me, if you knew this amazing couple, you would understand why 200 people would want to see them tie the knot. They're the nicest and most genuine people I have ever met.

After their ceremony everyone joined for a tented reception in the backyard with food, music and dancing. It was definitely a fun time!
