Jennie & Mark's Black Tie Classic Elegant Wedding in Downtown Indianapolis | Indianapolis & Carmel Wedding Invitation Studio
Posted on October 30, 2019 by Cari
You can never go wrong with a classic black and white wedding, especially when you toss in elegant dashes of golds and soft neutrals. This was the color palette our clients, Jennie & Mark, selected for their nuptials in downtown Indianapolis.
Their special day began with a full mass Catholic wedding ceremony at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church in downtown Indianapolis. This church is one of our favorite ceremony spots in the Indianapolis area. The historical cathedral is simply breathtaking and a perfect setting for something as intimate and sacred as a wedding ceremony. For their wedding ceremony, we created a folded program booklet, featuring the couple's monogram on the front. We added elegance to the program booklet with a thin black satin ribbon tied around the binding. It set the tone perfectly for what was to come....
After the ceremony, guests made their way to the Indiana Repertory Theater (one of our favorite wedding reception venues!). They were greeted by a beautiful welcome sign printed onto an antique mirror, live music from Endless Summer Band, and a cocktail hour - complete with a custom signature drink themed for the bride and groom.
Following the lively cocktail hour, guests received a glass of champagne, which also doubled as their seating escort card...leading them to their designated table and seat in the reception area. The theater was decorated with an abundance of string lights (always a romantic touch!), soft white floral centerpiece arrangements and accents by The Empty Vase, black chivari chairs, and beautiful uplighting. Each guest's place setting was personalized and marked with a laser cut gold mirror acrylic name plate, which doubles as a keepsake from the evening. Tucked into each guest's black silk napkin was a custom menu card, featuring the couple's wedding crest printed in metallic gold foil. (Their menu card also included a personal thank you note from the bride & groom - an addition we highly recommend! It ensures your guests know just how much you appreciate their attendance & how much you're looking forward to celebrating the evening with them.)
The couple's wedding cake was created by the ever popular Heavenly Sweets, located in Noblesville. The bride and groom kept the overall cake style to a classic look, with subtle textures and monochromatic ribbon and monogram. The Empty Vase also added a few floral touches, to soften the overall look.
Jennie & Mark's special day was planned and pulled together beautifully by the team at Jessica Dum Weddings. It's always lovely working with Jessica and her talented team, and we know our clients are always in great care when the select her as their day-of wedding coordinator.
We can't forget to thank our pal, Jessica Strickland for these incredibly beautiful photos! She is such a talented photographer - if you're still looking for a wedding photographer, look no further! She's the best in Indy!

I’m a country girl, small business owner, wife, mother of three, and a proud alumna of Purdue University (Boiler Up!).
Wondering what life is like for a busy mom with a graphic design & laser cutting business? My days are filled with pretty paper, blissful brides, half-finished sketchbooks, half-eaten lunches, and lots of cuddling with my little ones. I look forward to sharing with you all of life's fun happenings (both in & out of the studio) here on the blog!
