Indianapolis Wedding Photographers: Romantic Military Wedding at The Indiana War Memorial with Avon Gardens Reception
We wanted to share some photos from an Indiana War Memorial and Avon Gardens wedding in Indianapolis with you and reintroduce you to a great couple, Taylor & JD!
About the Wedding:
Wedding Colors: Lavender, Purple, Eggplant & Pearls!
Theme/Inspiration: Simple. Sophisticated. Chic.
Pearls: Did you notice one of the wedding colors is pearls? Don’t think pearls is a color? Well, when you love pearls as much as Taylor, they certainly can be a color! Needless to say, Taylor wedding jewelry featured pearls, as did the detailing on her dress and her hair pins and veil barrette. The mom’s and bridesmaids all wore pearls, too, and many of the female wedding guests had them on in honor of Taylor, as well! To make a great day even better, JD presented Taylor with a gift of pearls at their reception. Forget diamonds, pearls are this girl’s best friend!
DIY Projects: The Bride’s mom did most of the floral work, including the all the boutonnieres & corsages and all the center pieces. (Please note the strings of pearls incorporated in to the centerpieces and atop the cake). Mom also made the the bridal party wine glasses. Yes, you better believe those are wine glasses with tutus on them!
Personal Design: The bride’s best friend (and bridesmaid) made all the wedding invites & wedding programs. They are truly unique and one-of-a-kind. Just like this awesome couple!
Military Flair: You’ll notice the groom and most of the groomsmen are in some branch of the military. Each serviceman wore his dress blues in lieu of a tux or suit. You’ll also notice the saber arch as Taylor and JD left their reception, a military tradition.
