Everything about Colleen + Joe’s wedding day could be described as “classic with a modern twist”. The historic venue, her lace Rosa Clara dress, the hand painted cakes, the textured linens, all the way down to the master of ceremonies (who just happened to be the groom’s brother and a professional comedian). Each element had a timeless ease with small touches to surprise guests.
Early in the planning process Colleen realized that she would be sharing a wedding date with the Indianapolis Mini-Marathon and Cinco De Mayo celebrations. They decided to embrace the pairing by choosing a venue in the heart of Indy’s hustle and bustle and throw a party no one would forget. The venue was a clear catalyst for so much of the planning that followed.
The Indiana Landmarks Center stuns with its classic beauty and impeccable structural details. Guests were welcomed to cocktail hour by views of stained glass windows on a brick-paved courtyard. Cook Theatre, a room built in 1900, hosted the couple’s intimate reception and sparkled with accents of gold amidst the muted green and cream color palette. We loved how the guest tables were soft and detailed. The mixed linens: feathers, sequins, and embroidery, added a touch of whimsy to the historic space. Colleen thought of everything down to carrying the gold detailing from the invitations onto the Gallery Pastry Shop cake trifecta, and 2to1 Photography captured it all beautifully.
Overall this wedding oozed style and thoughtfulness, a true reflection of Colleen + Joe. Thank you both for allowing us to be a part this amazing celebration!
