Richmond Indiana wedding at Forest Hills Country Club
Adam and Mary’s wedding was a blend of sweetness, romance, and elegance. Their wedding colors of Green/Ivory paired with the warm fall sunlight was a stunning combination. Not to mention working alongside one of my favorite assistants, Greg, as well as the very considerate Lovesreel videographer team made for an enjoyable day. I am so appreciative of Mary and Adam letting us borrow them right before dinner at sunset. The images of them strolling into the sunset of the Forest Hills Country Club are some of my favorite wedding images I’ve taken this year. Thank you Adam and Mary, from the bottom of my ginger heart, in having Greg and I there as your photographers. You two were an awesome couple to work with and I hope to see you again soon!
Q&A with Mary and Adam:
I’d say that it was wonderful to see everything we’d planned for come together. It was a really beautiful day and most things seemed to go smoothly & without a hitch thanks to countless people behind the scenes.
The venue was chosen by me as it is the church I’ve grown up in & the club for the reception had a lot of wonderful memories spent with family (quite a few deceased) that I will always hold dear. Decor was to be classic & elegant but also simple. The date was special to me as it is in between two of my favorite couples of all time anniversaries, my parents at the beginning of September & my Grandparents at the end of September.
The day overall was a success! We got married & had fun doing it surrounded by loved ones! One of my very favorite moments was when I opened the charm bracelet from Adam. Without his knowing, the night before our wedding day, my mom had surprised me with my Grandmother’s charm bracelet that I believed to have been lost. I was incredibly close with her & it meant so much to me. As I inspected it, I came across a charm that said “A date to remember” that had her anniversary with my Grandfather on it. When I opened the gift from Adam…it had the same charm saying with our wedding date on it. I felt like my Grandparents were looking over us in that moment. I also loved walking down the aisle on my dad’s arm. I just love my family so much!! Adam’s favorite moments were our first look/reveal, lighting the unity candle & chatting during the service, me walking down the aisle (as well as his God-daughters/flower girls) & having a calming moment outside to himself, looking at the sky prior to the ceremony.
I’d say one of the funniest moments would be that the old car we had planned to use as our getaway car broke down before even making it to the church so we went in my parent’s car. I think I found out about it right before walking down the aisle. Adam thinks it was funny when he gave my dress train/veil a kick at the alter…he also found it funny when my Pastor had my four or five rows of my family nationwide stand & then about half of the church stand as his family members.
