A classically beautiful wedding with Sami Renee Photography

Matt + Molly’s summer wedding was a classic, simple, and elegant affair. Their ceremony was held at the always beautiful St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and the reception was at the Woodstock Club. Woodstock has so much natural beauty with its gorgeous golf course and always polished landscaping, but inside is a treasure trove of beautiful pieces that make the space look grand!

These two chose simple, neutral linens and décor for their reception space. Everything was clean and understated to the beauty of the room, and luscious florals from The Empty Vase were the focal point! Sami Renee Photography took gorgeous images of the day’s events and Molly looked stunning in her off-the-shoulder gown – a classic, timeless bridal look! Their vendor team was a pleasure to work with and everyone helped make the day go so smoothly.

Thank you, Matt + Molly, for allowing JDWC to play a part in your special day!!

Meet our Lead Coordinator, Kendra

Today I’m thrilled to officially introduce you to our newest Lead Coordinator, Kendra! Kendra joined our team this year and suddenly we feel complete! I don’t know what it is about her, but I know our brides will fall in love with her personality, attention to detail, great style and will be well loved on from beginning to end!

It’s because of our Lead Coordinators, like Kendra, that we have the capability of executing, managing and bringing to life the visions of so many couples weekend after weekend! And sometimes even more than one wedding in a weekend at that! I’m excited for you to get to know her a little better through this Q&A, and cannot wait to see what’s to come!

Xo,
Jess

Years with JDWC: Almost 1 year!

Tell us a little bit about you: I’m Kendra – wife to Peter and mom to our daughter Landyn. I love a clean space, fresh flowers, and quiet evenings at home with my family. I have a business management degree from IU and a passion for being organized and efficient.

What’s your favorite way to spend a Saturday when you’re not working a wedding? With my family. During the warmer months we love to go to the farmers market, ride our bikes to breakfast or lunch, and hit up our neighborhood pool. When it’s cold you can find us waking up slowly and making breakfast at home, enjoying a fire, and cuddled up with a movie.

You’re a Lead Coordinator for JDWC – what do you love most about working with brides and executing their wedding day? I love seeing a bride’s face light up when she first sees her vision that has come to life! So much time, thought, and preparation has gone into this one single day. You can literally see relief sweep her face as every worry and stressor transforms into pure joy!

If you had one piece of advice for couples on their wedding day, what would it be? Take a few moments to step back and soak in your day with your new husband or wife. Everything goes by so quickly, but those few minutes alone are something you’ll never regret!

Tell us what your favorite wedding trend is right now: Right now I am loving suspended greenery and florals, whether they be centerpieces or a feature above the head table, I think they add so much interest and intimacy to the space!

Your top 3 places to shop: Nordstrom, Zara, and Amazon (for everything!)

What’s your go-to coffee order? As big as they’ve got, with soy or almond milk and A LOT of Splenda!

Elegant gold downtown Indianapolis wedding with Jessica Strickland Photography

Katey + Nick’s elegant gold downtown Indianapolis wedding was chic and glamorous in every way possible! From the intimate Christ Church Cathedral located in the heart of the city and the Conrad Hotel where their reception was held, to an incredible vendor team, a F-U-N Bridal Party and the most beautiful couple around (no, seriously!!) – it was a perfect day from beginning to end!

The Conrad was the perfect location for Katey + Nick’s swanky affair, and their wedding reception played right into the chic vibe! Their first look took place in the stunning Kite suite overlooking the city, and was captured beautifully by Jessica Strickland Photography and Northernlight Filmworks! Their décor was simple, but complimented the Conrad perfectly with neutral linens, gold chiavari chairs, and a mix of high and low floral arrangements with gold accents and greenery throughout, created by Bella Sorella Floral Design!

Thank you again, Katey + Nick, for allowing JDWC to be a part of your big day!
