Ali and Frankie were surrounded by a community of friends who are family and family who are dear friends on their #bestdayever. Their day was overflowing with love and laughter. We started the day in the Presidential Suite at the Omni Severin with the ladies getting ready and made our way to the Crowne Plaza Union Station Grand Hall's infamous stained glass window for the bride and groom's first look. We followed up their first look and exchange of personal vows with photos at Newfields, a grand Catholic ceremony at St. John's Evanglist Indianapolis, photos around the city with their wedding party and immediate families, followed by an epic reception at Crowne Plaza's Grand Hall at Union Station. Wedding dreams came true for this special Indianapolis Wedding!
A first look in Crowne Plaza's grand hall in front of the famous stained glass window (original to the nation's first union station). After a moment they exchanged personal vows.
We headed to Newfields for photos with the couple's family, bridal party and to snag some epic couple's portraits.

Let the celebrations begin!
Bring on the tuscan vibes for this Indianapolis wedding reception. Sprawling greenery everywhere!
Personalized menus added an extra special touch for guests. No detail was left unturned at this Crowne Plaza wedding at the Grand Hall in Union station.
After introductions, the wedding recpetion was kicked off by the "Friend's Prayer", sang to the tune of Edelweiss and led by the bride's grandfather. This wasn't the last time our team was teary eyed throughout the night!
Among the traditional special dances, Ali had a very special dance with her grandfather. It was sweet, upbeat and oh-so perfect. I imagine they danced like this in the living room many times as Ali was growing up. #imnotcryingyourecrying
Heart felt toasts to the special couple
The dance floor was hot and the party didn't stop... well except to indulge in wedding cake and late night snacks.
Guests sent the couple off in style with a sparkler exit outside the entry to Union Station Grand Hall.
