What a better way to ring in the New Year than with an awesome couple like Jen and Mike?! Both are graduates of Indiana University (go hoosiers) and Jen is a good friend of my friend Julie (who was a bridesmaid).
I knew that this was going to be a very fun wedding the second I met Jen and Mike. At the time Jen was about 7 months pregnant with their son, Nolan, who is adorable and can makes an appearance below. They talked about how they met and what they had in mind for there big day. They wanted their guests to really have a great time and with it being New year’s eve the party was essential to kick off 2012 right.
We lucked out and it was in the 50′s on the day of their wedding. It’s been such a weird winter I didn’t know what to expect. After their traditional Catholic ceremony we spent some time cruising around downtown taking photos. LOVED the big fur coat Jen rocked for some of the night photos!
From there it was off to the reception at the Murat to get the party started….. and a party it was! The dance floor was packed all night. I even busted out some moves at one point. The space was gorgeous – shout out to Oasis Events! And I loved that they named each able a different date after a significant date in their relationship or the relationships/anniversaries of their guests.
Ceremony: Immaculate Heart of Mary
Bridal Gown/Bridesmaids dresses and tuxes : Nancy’s Bridal
Event Coordinator: Patti with Oasis Events
DJ: Jeremy with Pro Audio Indy
Floral : VS Designs
Then we headed downtown for some photos before the recepetion
Love night time photos The Christmas lights were still up on the circle and around Mass Ave. We took advantage of both and the Murat, where they had the reception.
This reception was GORGEOUS!!! Patti at Oasis Events did an amazing job of transforming the room.
Each table was named after a significant date, either to the couple to one of the guests at that table. Such a unique idea!
Almost time to ring in 2012!!!
And last but not least me with Jen and Mike!
