What a celebration! Joe and Shelby’s wedding had so much love which made my job all the more fun. Their family and friends were very welcoming. I also have not seen a dance floor that packed in years. It was truly an honor to capture your celebrations!
Bride and Groom Q+A:
Words can’t describe that day. Before getting married people would always say either one of two things, “It will be the best day of your life!” or “Not everything will go right, but no one will notice.” It was, by far, the best day of my life and everything went perfectly. I was certainly blessed with the perfect wedding day. Not only was I able to marry the love of my life, but I was able to be surrounded by the people I love most. What’s not to love about that?
From the start my husband and I started looking at larger venues to fit our huge group of family and friends, so that ruled out a couple of venues. Then we were able to narrow it down to the small group of venues in Columbus, IN. The day we went to visit venues, The Factory 12 Event Loft was perfectly decorated with Blush (the color I knew I was going to use) and I was set. I could picture our perfect day and the first moment when we walked into the venue. It was great.
We ended up using The Paper Lantern Store for our Lanterns for over the dance floor. We used SBPI Graphics for our seating chart board and our welcome boards. The Factory 12 Event Loft was able to give us great options for linen colors. Our candy buffet and the cookie table were great aspects of our wedding. The candy buffet coordinated with our colors of our wedding. The cookie bar was specially made by multiple members of our family with love.
How the day went overall: The day was absolutely perfect. I also loved reliving the day with Stacy Able’s pictures.The one feeling I cannot wrap my head around is the overwhelming love, support, and friendship that Joe and I felt from our family and friends. It was definitely an amazing feeling.
My favorite moment was the moment I was about to walk down the aisle. I was able to see my soon to be husband, my friends and family smiling at me, and my dad by my side. Couldn’t be happier.
I thought it was hilarious that I had multiple guests say that we needed to keep dancing if we all fell through the floor at The Factory 12 Event Loft… Needless to say, it was definitely a dancing group we had there.
Our first dance song was White Dress by Ben Rector.. definitely a beautiful song! My tip would be to practice first! We definitely didn’t do that!

Toni has to win the award for best fiance. She arranged for Jason and her engagement session to be the Lucas Oil Stadium. Being Jason is a big fan, it was an amazing way to incorporate him. The two donned Colt’s jerseys which also was conveniently their wedding date (6-18-2015).
Slight shameful fact: this was my first time in the Stadium as I have not yet been to a game. It was so amazing for my first visit to be for Toni and Jason’s engagement photography session.
I can’t wait for their wedding in June 2015 as these two were great to work with!
Josh and I met at Indiana University. We were both in the Marching Hundred there and basically fell for each other instantly! We have been together for 3 years now!
He proposed to me on May 9 this year. We went out to a fancy dinner with my family to celebrate me graduating college and to also celebrate my birthday coming a few days later. He gave me an early birthday present which was a photo collage of a bunch of our favorite pictures together. Each picture was covered up with a sweet love note and the last picture in the frame had a hand drawn picture of him proposing. When I looked over, he was down on one knee with the ring! After the engagement, the restaurant brought out champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. It was very sweet!
Josh was the one who picked out the engagement ring. I had given him plenty of “hints” about what kind of ring I wanted. I have always been drawn to colored rings, especially blush colored. He picked out my amazing rose gold ring with a morganite stone and I absolutely love it!
We are getting married in April of 2016 in Columbus, IN which is my hometown. We will be having a very romantic, intimate feel to our wedding with lots of soft colors and other personal touches.
