indy soiree and mustard seed gardens.

I'm really proud to be a part of a group of wedding professionals who are, in my opinion, the best of the best. We provide photography, invitations, planning, catering, baking, florals, and beauty and together we call ourselves Indy Soiree. We're a unique crew because we remain individual companies but love working together to create events that define and excite Indy couples. 

Over the past few months, the Indy Soiree gals and I have fallen in love with Mustard Seed Gardens. This stunning venue is absolutely one of a kind. With a barn perfect for receptions and outdoor ceremony space, a place like this is hard to find. We really wanted to show off it's unique and versatile nature and what better way to do that than with pictures!

So we put our planning caps on, used each of our individual strengths, and did just that.

Together we created two themes. The first was a chic outdoor affair with crystal and floral centerpieces, a gourmet BBQ buffet, cake display with a delicately draped cake as the focus, and a champagne station that doubles as an escort card table.

Inside we put together a more rustic set-up that would tend to the vintage loving bride. We set the table with vintage chairs and benches, a burlap runner, an array of florals, and gold details. Staying within the rustic theme we included vintage post-dinner stations including a dessert buffet topped upon barrels, a mug and tea favor station, and a popcorn and soda table.

I loved every part of yesterday. It was so fun to work with my friends and see them in their elements. And of course, I loved photographing all of their beautiful details and ideas.

Big thanks to Mustard Seed Gardens for letting us use their space, Bella Bridesmaid, for the beautiful gowns and accessories and for being so helpful during the shoot, and Megan from Mustard Seed for being a wonderful model.

And of course, one million thanks to the amazing Indy Soiree gals: Boldly Chic Events, Interprintations, La Dolce Salon, Design Group, Cake Zen, and A Cut Above Catering. You guys are some real talents!

Enjoy this (very long) sneak peek of our day!
