Meet the Gabberts! A striking combination of color, style and culture made this day at Hotel Carmichael one to remember. Kim + Ryan were a perfect mirror to the day they planned. It was full of energy and bold beauty like Kim and classic and timeless stature like Ryan.
Take a look at this spring fling through the lens of Sarah Elizabeth Photos. It is bound to give you so much inspiration for how to highlight all the best parts of each of you on your favorite day.
Kim + Kyle’s ceremony took place at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church with portions spoken in both Spanish and English to ensure all guests felt included in their nuptials. They then spent the rest of the day at the newly constructed Hotel Carmichael in Carmel, Indiana. The elegance of this hotel and abundance of architectural details allows for a unique backdrop to any day.
In the cocktail space they added a photo wall complete with greenery, the bride and groom’s new moniker lit on a pink neon sign, and polaroid cameras to capture the fun of the night. Bright pops of pinks, blues, creams, and greens, could be found throughout the entire day. The bridesmaids floor-length dresses were a bold pink and complimented by the groomsmen ties. Kim’s ring was a blue stunner surrounded by diamonds. We couldn’t help but notice its perfect pairing to Kim’s hand-beaded gown. The florals by Royal Creations tied in all of the colors beautifully.
Guests were welcomed into the reception space with a choice of champagne (Kyle) or tequila (Kim). There is no better way to set the tone of a party and party they did! It was kicked off with a live mariachi band following dinner. The room was electrified! They then turned the night over to Grapevine Productions who kept the dance floor packed until the end of the night. The fusion of music was the perfect way to honor both Kim + Kyle.
The day did not lack special, memorable touches. During toasts guests were each served fortune cookies as an homage to Kim + Kyle’s first date. The fortune cookie on their first date read “a passionate new romance will appear in your life and when you least expect it.” We are so happy the universe sent you this sign, Kim + Kyle, and know that your marriage is destined to be a great one!
Cheers to your forever!
