Melissa and Nick

I was so honored when Melissa and Nick chose me as their photographer. We were such a good fit for each other! So many elements of this day I would personally have as my own. Nick and Melissa have known each other for a very long time, but it wasn’t right away that they started dating. I’m glad they did! Their families live just a mile or two down the road from each other in Zionsville so it was only natural that they would have their ceremony at Nick’s family home, which couldn’t have been more perfect! Having an outdoor ceremony is risky, but I admire their courage and it paid off! We did have all the seats covered with trash bags and right before the ceremony the rain stopped, the heavens parted and beautiful sun poured through the clouds. A sure sign that this wedding was meant to be!Mitch Daniels was their officiant. I am amazed at Governor Daniels’ commitment to Nick and Melissa…only the day before their wedding did he have an unfortunately accident that left him with many stitches! We have photoshopped that out:)

The Scottish Rite looked amazing with Melissa’s attention to detail and Marjan’s guidance. Jim Cerone created the most perfect evening with his amazing talents. I was impressed when he started their first dance so seamlessly from the dance floor after addressing their guests in the balcony. Jim is by far the most sophisticated and classy D.J. in town. The dance floor was packed all night long!
