There is so much I feel I could say about this wedding! What a beautiful and fun day it was! I met up with the bride and groom in their own areas of the church to keep from seeing each other. Their ceremony was at Holy Spirit at Geist Parish. It is a beautiful church! Marques and his groomsmen were getting their final touches. Jackie and her bridesmaids were getting ready as well. Jackie had help with her dress from all her bridesmaids and her mother and sister. Jackie made sure to include parts of her mother's wedding dress on her bouquet and a small piece was added to the front of her dress. She also wore her mother's veil. I loved that she added all these to share in her own wedding day. I also loved that she had her bridesmaids each put on one piece of her jewelry for the day. It was such a neat idea and something she will remember forever.
The ceremony started and Jackie walked down the aisle with her Dad. She looked so beautiful! Marques would look over at his bride throughout the ceremony. He looked at her that way the whole day! It was so sweet! After the ceremony the whole bridal party went out to the front of the church for pictures. They were all laughing and having a blast. They definitely have a great group of friends! The whole bridal party then headed to a local bar in Broad Ripple to have a few drinks before heading to the reception. We had so much fun taking pictures there! They were some of my favorites from their day!
Their reception was at The Willows in Westfield. It is not far from the Broad Ripple area. The venue just opened a huge deck right outside of their reception room. It looked out to a pond and it was so gorgeous! Their guests enjoyed hanging out there after dinner. The toasts had many people tearing up (including myself haha). You can definitely tell these two are well loved and they truly love each other so much. After their first dances everyone headed to the dance floor! Everyone had a blast dancing together. It was such a great day! I'm so happy I got to be apart of their day! Enjoy the many favorites from the wedding and congrats again to Marques and Jackie!
I wish you both many many happy and fun years together!
