Collette+Jason :: Indianapolis Wedding Photography

Another beautiful summer wedding to share with you on the blog today! Collette and Jason were married on Saturday, June 18 at the White River Yacht Club in Indianapolis, IN. ย This was a special wedding for me to be a part of with the fact that I have known Collette since we were 6 years old and in 1st grade together! We grew up together playing sports and going to school together, so it was an honor to reconnect with her and be asked to capture her and Jason’s wedding day. I loved how easy-going and laid back they were (and their family) on the day of the wedding. They were up for all of my crazy photo ideas in the rather sweltering June day ๐Ÿ™‚ I also had the pleasure of working with Emily from Emily Ventura Designsย who was the wedding planner for the day ๐Ÿ™‚
We started the day getting ready at a family friend’s house, which was also located on the White River just down the road from the Yacht Club. And then we actually took a boat from the house to the Yacht Club to arrive for the ceremony!
Enjoy some of the small and big moments captured from Collette and Jason’s special day below ๐Ÿ™‚
