Lindsay + Nick at Indianapolis Museum of Art

Lindsay and Nick were one of our first 2016 weddings, and so marks the start of a season of celebration! We had the pleasure of working alongside the Indianapolis Museum of Art for this gorgeous event held in Randolph H. Deer Special Events Pavilion Pavilion.

Their look was crisp and clean – featuring white linen and overlays, accents of pink and natural wood chiavari chairs. We truly love their tall arrangements that featured hanging candles. This was a beautiful touch that added an element of enchantment!

Guests began arriving around 5:30pm following an off-site wedding ceremony at Saints  Peter and Paul Cathedral. Butler passed hors d’oeuvres were offered to guests, along with a refreshing Italian soda bar.

Following cocktail hour, guests and the bridal party were invited to be seated before Nick and Lindsay made their grand entrance to the pavilion. The father of the bride gave a brief welcome to all their guests for the evening prior to dinner being served.

Typically brides and grooms opt to offer a duo entree when they do not want to offer a choice of entree, but Nick and Lindsay had a different idea. They offered guests their choice of two duo entrees, one featuring chicken and beef, and another featuring beef and fish.

Assorted breads, flatbreads, french butter and sun-dried tomato butter

Each place setting featured a gold charger and a menu card. Some table has short floral arrangements and other tall, all featuring beautiful full roses in blush, pink, white, and cream. Regardless, every table was perfectly set. Their cake table, front and center in the room, was set with white floor length linen and a white overlay with gold detailing. The table itself hosted a gifted cake knife and server dressed in white roses and bows.


Following dinner, guests danced the night away with the new Mr. and Mrs. to the sounds of a live band. The lights of Randolph H. Deer Special Events Pavilion Pavilion dimmed and a stunning colorful glow was cast around the room from the band’s stage lighting. The giant skylight anchored the room with a subtle golden glow.
