A navy + gold wedding with Ivan & Louise Images

Heather + Abhi’s navy and gold wedding was full of lush florals, greenery, and so much love! Their fall wedding was held at the incredible Laurel Hall here in Indianapolis, which has so many different locations for photos. Our favorite has to be the gorgeous staircase where Heather + Abhi entered their reception. These two wanted a neutral color scheme, and navy was the perfect neutral because it compliments almost any other color. For this design they chose to add in shades of ivory and gold, with touches of fall colors in the bouquets.

Looking through the phenomenal photography by Ivan & Louise Images, it’s hard not to be pulled right back into the emotions of the day. The way Abhi’s hand gently caresses Heather’s face when they kiss just shows how much this navy and gold wedding was overflowing in love. And just wait until you see the photo of Heather’s dad seeing his little girl in a wedding gown for the first time. We’re not crying, you are!

Florals played a huge part in the overall design. Isibeal Studio used gorgeous floral arrangements and greenery to decorate the ceremony and reception space, as well as the beautiful fireplace behind Heather + Abhi’s sweetheart table at Laurel Hall. The custom vow booklets, menus, and other personalized paper goods from Minted added an extra touch of gold that made their day so elegant.

Congratulations Heather + Abhi! We hope your first few months of marriage have been incredible and full of love!

Our newborn session with Ivan + Louise Images

 

In honor of Mother’s Day weekend, I am {finally} sharing our newborn session with the lovely Ivan + Louise Images! Mike and I welcomed our first little one, William Dale Mattingly, into the world on January 18th and we simply cannot get enough of this little guy! He’s just shy of four months old already, sporting more smiles these days, starting to laugh, and has lost most of all that hair you see in these photos…with the exception of a little mohawk-action going on!! Ha!

As far as Will’s nursery goes – we chose to keep it neutral with a mix of gray, white, and wood elements (sources sited below), especially since we were waiting to find out the gender! Simplicity was probably my biggest goal with the space, and I loved incorporating a few DIY projects, handmade pieces and even some items from both of our childhoods.

Thank you Emily + James, for capturing such a special time in our lives! We adore you both and are anxious to meet YOUR little one here in the next couple of weeks! Will’s excited for a new friend to play with, too!!

Enjoy!

Xo,
Jess

A Kate Spade-Inspired Styled Shoot

We are beyond thrilled to see our Kate Spade-inspired Styled Shoot featured over on Borrowed & Blue this week! The goal was to step outside the box a little – mixing black and white stripes and polka dots, with bright and bold colors… and incorporating unexpected details like sassy signage by Whim & Proper Design Co, gold snails from West Elm and even a confetti bar. The unique alleyway backdrop in downtown Indianapolis allowed us to create a unique and FUN look to remember!

So much time, talent and effort went into this gem of a project, and kudos to the incredible group of vendors who helped bring it to life! Be sure to visit them below and check out the feature on Borrowed & Blue!

Jess
