{One of} My Best Friends Wedding{s}

I cried when I saw her in her dress before the ceremony. I cried when she walked down the aisle. I cried when Terry was repeating his vows after the preacher and ended each one of them with "...my Queen." Example: "I promise to celebrate your passion, because it makes you who you are....my Queen." I cried when her parents eyes were watering during the Lord's Prayer. I cried because of the heart-warming ceremony led by the Groom's cousin. I cried because of the sheer beauty of the day and the fact that one of my best friends was marrying one of the nicest men I have ever met. Kristen and Terry, I wish you years and years of happiness.

Kristen and Terry tied the knot at the Columbia Club on the circle in downtown Indianapolis. There was a gorgeous light streaming thru the windows during the ceremony....the space was remarkable.
The cake was simply amazing and so elegant.
Kristen chose to adorn half of the tables with a "short" arrangement of green hydrangeas (above). The other tables had striking "tall" arrangements of 3 Calla Lillies....it was stunning.

Kristen and Terry have strong ties to the University we went to...it is the reason why they are together. So, as a gift to the couple, I had the school mascot come in to take some pictures with the bride & groom and all alumni and staff that were at the wedding. Above is a shot of our sorority sisters and the mascot.
