I was humbled when my cousin Madi asked me to photograph her wedding day. They had a winter wedding at the Columbia Club in downtown Indianapolis. The Columbia Club is a beautiful, historic, elegant venue built in 1925, located on monument circle.
I started their day by taking some photos of her beautiful dress. Shortly after, I got photos of Madi and Adam separately reading private notes they wrote to each other. They both shed tears and it was so sweet and emotional!
Madi wanted to do a first look with her father, and finally a first look with Adam. With both, tears were shed again. The amount of love this family shares is so beautiful.
After the first look, we were able to head to step outside for some bridal party photos prior to ceremony. Monument circle is the perfect spot for photos, no matter the season. After that, we took some time to do portraits of Madi and Adam inside the hotel and outside around monument circle.
It came time for the ceremony and it was stunning. Instead of the traditional unity ceremony, these coffee lovers poured their favorite coffee together. I love when couples incorporate their personalities into their day.
The reception was a blast. Towards the end, Madi and Adams fathers came out dressed up as “Dumb and Dumber”. No one knew they were going to do this. It was a complete surprise and SO much fun!
Here’s to Mr. + Mrs. Cibulka!
