My dear friend, Monica, of Mon Amie Events is usually the mastermind behind some of Indianapolis’s most beautiful weddings but when she asked her husband, Paul, what he would like to do for their 15th anniversary, it was HIS idea to redo their wedding! And wow, did they ever! It was just an absolutely incredible day from beginning to end….soo full of love, joy, emotion, family, laughter, stories of the past and present, reminiscing, celebrating! Monica and I have been friends for many years, I’ve been honored to photograph their family many times but this time topped them all, I must say! After prep at the Omni Severin in downtown Indy, we drove to Bloomington to where their ceremony took place. It was a picture perfect weather day, which they deserved after having SNOW on their original wedding day! I said that this was the perfect memory of Beck Chapel on IU’s campus flanked in flowers and blooming trees….to compliment their original one of Beck Chapel by snowfall! After just the most fun afternoon enjoying the weather and celebrating with Paul, Monica, Sabrina and Kyle, we headed back to Indy. You see, Monica and Paul are well loved friends to many in the wedding industry and several of them took it upon themselves to surprise them…and WOW, did they ever! The Omni was stunning with the decor and florals, just the most gorgeous perfect intimate setting for this occasion, complete with a divine 7 course meal that we all shared. The surprises were at every turn all day, really….from everyone, Paul, the kids, their family…and even a surprise first dance coordinated by our friend, Bob Ridge of Indy Visual who co-shot the day with me. Watching the surprise and joy on their faces all day was truly priceless! It was a beautiful day, celebrating beautiful people on such a special occasion….and it was such an honor to have been chosen to document this day! All of my love, Richard family! 🙂
