Is there really a more perfect color combination than grey and yellow? It seems that no matter the time of year a couple weds, this smashing color duet always looks magnificent. Especially at the Indiana State Museum. Using the museum’s architecture to create a unique reception atmosphere, Libby and David’s beautiful June wedding was nothing short of magical. The sun was shining and the weather was absolutely perfect for this Saturday affair. Congratulations Libby + David!
Before marrying under the steam clock along the canal that separates Military Park from the museum property, Libby and David shared an intimate first look with one another on the Canal Overlook Bridge. First looks are growing in popularity and are perfect for the couple that wants to spend more time enjoying their party and their guests instead of taking pictures directly following the ceremony. Libby made a grand entrance at the start of her ceremony, walking arm-in-arm with her father to her groom as he waited for her under the clock tower.
Following their vows and highly celebrated first kiss as husband and wife, Libby and David joined their guests on the IMA Café terrace for cocktail hour. In place of a traditional guest book, Libby and David invited guests to write their names on different color hearts and slip them into a frame. David’s niece, Grace, had the very important job, and honor, of inviting everyone to dinner by chiming the dinner bells and did so with a very bright smile.

Rapp Reception Hall created an intimate and unique reception space for the bride and groom. Café lights were hung overhead adding more touches of warmth along with their yellow tulip centerpieces. Tables were dressed in grey linen with yellow napkins. Each place setting included a menu card for the evening’s meal tucked into a pocket folded napkin. Libby and David enjoyed their reception from a sweetheart table similarly decorated to their guests tables, with the exception of the wooden signs announcing them as the new Mr. & Mrs! Champagne was poured, toasts were given, and Libby and David were glowing with smiles all evening long!

As stunning as Libby’s grand entrance down the exterior stairs of the Indiana State Museum was…. Her and David’s exit was even better! Framed with sparklers on either side, Libby and David made their way down their second aisle of the evening, this time as husband and wife.
