Blooming Blush Spring Wedding | Megan & Robby | Ritz Charles • Carmel, IN
Megan & Robby
Blooming Blush Ritz Charles Wedding
After a long winter, spring officially sprung on March 23rd, 2019. Abundant sunshine and blue skies created perfect wedding day weather, totally fitting for Megan & Robby’s relationship. Megan & Robby are the sweetest, most thoughtful, fun-loving couple ever and they deserved nothing less than the best. The morning started off with the girls munching on Chick-fil-a at Kathryn’s Bridal Bar while getting prepped and pampered. A gorgeous downtown Indianapolis Airbnb situated atop the salon made the perfect space for Megan to slip into her sparkly lace & tulle Morilee gown.
The groomsmen hung out at Ritz Charles while Robby finished up the final details in preparation for seeing his best friend, bride, and soon-to-be wife for the first time.
Megan & Robby teased me because I kept saying “LOVEEEE” after every fifth shot. But c’mon look at these two! swoon!
Knowing how freakin’ awesome Megan & Robby are, I knew their friends would be just as cool! All of the girls attended Purdue University (Boiler Up!) while Robby and some of the guys were from IU. So we may have had a bit of a house divided, but a rivalry doesn’t mean anything when it can bring two people like this together!
As the ceremony start time neared, Disney instrumental music filled the air as guests trickled into the Ritz Charles Chapel. Megan & Robby exchanged vows, lit a unity candle, and sealed their marriage with a kiss.
I absolutely love when I get to photograph a couple in their untouched reception venue! It’s so fun to see their reaction to the final design while also capturing them in the space they envisioned for so long. Incredible cherry blossom trees anchored the elegant Garden Pavilion, while light poured in through the 360 degree windows. The blush, ivory, and navy color palette that Megan and Robby chose perfectly accompanied their elegant, classic, and fun wedding day theme. All of the blooms by Bella Sorella were, as always, absolutely exquisite!
Some amazing toasts centered around how loved Megan & Robby are as a couple and how sweet of a person Megan is (drink!) One of my absolute favorite moments from the reception was when Megan shared a first dance with her two brothers. Not only did I tear up during that moment, but yet again when editing those images! After one heck of a day, a popcorn bar kept the dance floor alive while guests continued to celebrate the new Mr. & Mrs. Potter.
After a wedding like this, I can’t help but want to go back and do it all again! Megan & Robby, it has been such a pleasure getting to know you over the past year and a half and I feel so honored to have been invited to capture your special day. You two are the best and I’m so happy for you both. Cheers to a lifetime of love & happiness! See you at Harry’s!
