Lisa & Fred’s  Factory 12 Loft Wedding | Columbus Indiana Wedding Photographers

Fred is a fun, silly guy which pairs perfectly with Lisa’s organized, sweet demeanor. Their wedding was a blend of the pair. Lisa’s dress… stunning. I have never seen anything like her stripped Haley Paige gown and I hope to see more like it. Fred’s striped gray suit complimented Lisa’s dress to a t. My favorite moment of their day was when Lisa was about to walk down the aisle and covered her beautiful face with her bouquet as she was overcome emotion. They were a fun group to document around Columbus and at the Factory 12 loft. Thank you Fred and Lisa in having Walter and I document your day. Also thank you in letting us steal you away for some sunset portraits. They were well worth it!

 

Wedding synopsis with Fred and Lisa:
The day was a whirlwind and it just flew by! We chose the venue by finding a place in Columbus, Indiana, that could be both fun and classy. We ended up calling the Factory 12 Event Loft and reached Gethin Thomas. We toured the Loft on one of those negative degree days in January 2014, and we loved it! The hardwood floors and exposed brick gave the venue rich character and a romantic touch. After seeing the venue and speaking with Gethin, we were sold on this place.

When it came time to pick a date, we ran into a few challenges. Freddie wanted to get married as quickly as possible so we could start our lives together. Being that it was already January 2014, dates available were very limited. We knew we wanted to get married in early fall, however, the Loft and Saint Bartholomew Catholic Church did not match up with available dates until mid-November. The very day we went to finalize a November wedding date, we were told a date had opened up in September due to another couple changing their wedding venue location. Freddie and I were ecstatic. We immediately verified with Saint Bartholomew that September 6, was still available, and that’s how we landed on the perfect day of September 6.

Favorite moments
Lisa: Meeting Freddie at the alter. He looked so sweet standing there, and it was a surreal moment.
Freddie: Lisa walking down the aisle was beautiful. The toasts and memories with everyone were really special.

Late Summer Columbus Indiana Engagement Photography













Aaron & Anna’s Summer Columbus Indiana Engagement Photography

It was a delight to meet up with Anna and Aaron in the town they met, Columbus, Indiana, for their late summer engagement photography session. Anna’s clothing selection for Aaron and her was perfection. Leslie Hair and Makeup did a fabulous job creating the perfect wave/curl in Anna’s gorgeous locks. Then, we hiked in some atmospheric places to achieve some pretty epic bridge shots. They also put up with my silly commentary which made for great laughing captures.  Anna and Arron, it was great to get to know you two better and I can’t wait for your wedding next August! xo

Q&A with Anna and Aaron:

How did you two meet?
Aaron and I met in June 2011. After graduating from college, we each unknowingly made the move to Columbus to start our careers at Cummins. We met on our first day of work at the company’s OnBoarding program. Aaron asked me to lunch the next Friday, followed by drinks at 4th Street Bar that same evening. A friendship quickly developed which led to us dating a few short months later, and the rest is history!

How Aaron proposed?
Aaron proposed a few weeks shy of our three year anniversary. It was any typical Saturday; Aaron started the day off golfing with friends, and I began it with a kickboxing work out at the gym followed by a shopping trip to Bloomington. Later that afternoon, Aaron asked if I wanted to ride our bicycles downtown. The weather was absolutely beautiful so we made our way from the west side of town on the people trail. This is something we have done a million times, so I definitely had no suspicion! As we were riding into town, Aaron said we should stop for a beer a 4th Street Bar. Again, nothing out of the usual. However, this was the place of our first unofficial date. After we paid our bill, Aaron said we should take the long way home and ride down Washington Street. From there we cut over to Jackson Street where the Cummins Corporate Office Building is located. By the corporate office there is a nice area with fountains, a pond and park benches. Aaron asked if I wanted to stop and relax for a bit. Again, we had been here before when we first started dating, so I still didn’t suspect anything at the time. We sat there for a while and chatted before Aaron asked me if I wanted a drink of water (he so smartly packed a back pack before leaving for our bike ride!). Instead of pulling the water bottle out of the bag, Aaron pulled out a ring box and got down on one knee. This is where the story gets a little blurry as my first reaction was to start crying… a lot. But that was soon followed by “yes, yes, yes!”

General wedding plans?
We will be married August 1, 2015 at St. Batholomew’s Catholic Church in Columbus, In. Our reception will be held at The Commons, with a cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. Artisan Foodworks will be catering a delicious Italian dinner served family-style, and Alan Trisler with Audio Magic will provide the music to take us dancing into the night. We are extremely excited to host our friends and family in the town that brought us together.

Indiana State Museum Wedding | Indianapolis Wedding Photographers



























































Nan & Yinghao’s Indiana State Museum Wedding | Indianapolis Wedding Photographers

I walked into the Indiana State Museum to Nan’s Blue Manolo Blahniks, you know the one’s that Carrie Bradshaw was proposed to with in Sex and the City, and knew this wedding was going to be awesome. Being a foodie and shoe fanatic, sadly with big feet, I’m not ashamed to say I took A LOT of photos of Nan’s shoes.

Nan and Yinghao were so mellow, happy, and easy to work with. They and family were very patient as assistant Molly and I were having a ball taking them around the State Museum for portraits. In addition to a plethora of Manolo photos, Nan’s dress from Marie Gabriel had this ethereal quality to it which lent to some epic veil/dress in the wind photos. Their sunset with grand entrance by Nan down the Indiana State Museums Canal steps was stunning. To top the evening off, Keith Maddox kept the music playing while Nan and Yinghao let Molly and I sneak them away for sunset and night cityscape bridal portraits. Thank you Nan and Yinghao in having me be your photographer. It was truly my honor!

Eiteljorg Museum Wedding | Indianapolis Wedding Photographers



























































Leah & Steve’s Summer Eiteljorg Wedding by Indianapolis Wedding Photographers: Stacy Able Photography

Where to begin with Leah and Steve’s wedding?  Well, after having a blast with them during their Irwin Garden Engagement session, I knew their wedding was going to be equally spectacular. Leah is vivacious, hilarious, and of course gorgeous. Steve is calm yet goofy, and a overall great guy. Together these two make up the perfect couple. Their wedding, like the couple, was equally as flawless. Leah’s gown from That Special Touch paired with natural hair and makeup by Leslie Hair and Makeup equated to bridal perfection. The bridesmaids accompanying Leah were stunning in their Bella Bridesmaids, my favorite bridesmaids shop in Indiana, gowns. Not to be outdone, Steve and his groomsman held it down in dark navy suits. Despite the Colt’s tail-gait bus having a minor snafu which resulted with Uber saving the day.  Also, the weather cooperated for a beautiful ceremony outside the Eiteljorg Museum in downtown Indianapolis.  Leah and  Steve added some flair with large weather balloons, clear umbrellas in case of rain, a Moscow mule (which is now my favorite drink!) as their signature drink, as well as a sparkly sign from Jupiter and Juno.

Their reception at the Eiteljorg ran smoothly thanks to Jessica Dum Mattingly  as the planner and Alan Trisler/Audio Magic Entertainment as DJ. The gorgeous florals were provided by the Empty Vase and the catering by Kahn’s Catering. It was also great to work along side videographers form Unique Heart Productions.

A big THANK you to Leah and Steve in having Walter and I be a part of your big day. Your families and you were a delight to photograph and I hope to see you two again soon!

The Mansion at Oak Hill Wedding in Carmel Indiana by Stacy Able Photography









































 Vanessa & Jerimiah’s Summer The Mansion at Oak Hill Wedding in Carmel Indiana by Stacy Able Photography

I hadn’t photographed at the Oak Hill Mansion in Carmel Indiana for a long while and it was great to be back. Vanessa and Jerimiah chose a great location to get the best of both worlds – an outdoor Forrest ceremony and indoor elegant reception.  As Indiana goes, a thunderstorm rumbled towards the end of the ceremony. However, we lucked out for their portraits. The couple chose to do a first look and which a majority of their portraits were done pre-ceremony.  The sunset after the storm was stunning and the two let me sneak them away for a few moments for a few extra bride and groom images. Thank you Vanessa and Jerimiah in having Walter and I document your special day! You two were a delight to photograph and we hope to see you again soon.
