We always get excited when we have a Conrad Hotel Wedding. It is one of our favorite venues downtown. We started off our day at the Conrad to get Nick and Katey getting ready for their big day. The buzz of the preps is always so fun to capture. The anticipation, nervousness, and excitement as the time gets closer to seeing each other for the first time. Nick and Katey are extremely close with their family and friends. It was so evident seeing the interactions all morning.
Nick and Katey did a first look in the fabulous Kite Suite. I loved hearing Nick’s reaction when he turned around and saw Katey for the first time that day. I am pretty sure it took his breath away. We were able to have some time there to get some wonderful shots of just the two of them before meeting up with their bridal party for more photos before the ceremony. Before leaving The Conrad Nick and Katey each had a special bracelet that was inscribed for each of their new mother-in-laws. It was so sweet and I (Jen) was for sure crying behind the camera.
Next we were off to the the infamous Circle in the very center of downtown Indianapolis for bridal party photos. One of the things I love about working with Jessica Strickland is her energy. It also carries over when I am editing and I can hear her commentary with the bridal party and bride and groom while she is shooting their photos. Once photos were finished it was time for their lovely ceremony at Christ Church Cathedral. Dating back to 1837 Christ Church Cathedral has a long history right in the heart of downtown. Dean Steve Carslen performed a beautiful ceremony for Nick and Katey.
It was time to head back to The Conrad Hotel for the reception. As Katey’s dad Mike got up to give his welcome speech you can tell the guests were so excited and ready to have a good time. It was a wonderful party with the dance floor packed all night (thanks Jim Cerone)!!!
Thank you Nick and Katey (and your amazing families) for having us document one of the most important days in your life.
You may remember their TRAILER we posted right after their wedding.
