An Autumn Wedding at a Beautiful Private Estate | Indianapolis and Carmel Wedding Invitations and Laser Cutting

There's just something extra special about a private estate wedding reception. It provides a beautiful and unique setting, a breath of fresh air from the standard ballroom wedding. It insures complete privacy and the feel of a destination wedding locale, as opposed to just another hotel. 
 
Our clients, Annalee & David, opted to host their wedding reception at a private family estate, and it was heavenly. Today, we’re recapping their special day on the blog!
 
Their wedding day started with a ceremony at the Indianapolis Art Center, nestled in the center of Indianapolis’ popular Broad Ripple neighborhood. The ceremony was held outside, with a geometric wood arch serving as the couple’s nuptial backdrop, provided by Blue Blossom Rentals. The arch was adorned with beautiful florals, designed by David at The Empty Vase.
 
The Empty Vase also created all of the bouquets, wedding reception centerpieces, and all other floral accents…just wait until you see all of David’s beautiful floral masterpieces in the photos below!
 
Our favorite part of the ceremony was that it was officiated by the bride’s grandfather. What a wonderful way to begin your marriage – with your grandfather pronouncing you as husband and wife!

After the ceremony, the couple made their way to the family’s private estate for their wedding reception. The couple selected a stylish Bentley getaway car, with a custom “just married” sign attached to the back. Talk about arriving to their big celebration in style!
 
Guests were greeted by a custom wooden seating chart, adorned with more beautiful wedding flowers. After cocktail hour, guests found their seats inside the large white tent – which was decorated to the nines! The wooden farm tables provided family-style reception seating, and were perfectly paired with wooden cross-back chairs. Atop the tables were varying linens in mauve and neutral hues, along with lush floral centerpieces in varying heights.
 
When it comes to event rentals, we have so many great resources here in the Indianapolis area - many of the items pictured below were rentals from A Classic Party Rental and Atmospheres. The abundance of candlelight added another level of romance to the wedding reception ambiance, and complimented the private estate wedding reception setting quite well.

The evening continued as guests dined on a delicious dinner provided by Pinnacle Catering Group, enjoyed some macarons from the couple's custom Macaron Bar, and sipped on champagne throughout the bridal party's toasts. The bride and groom and all of their wedding guests then danced the evening away under the stars (another plus side to a private estate wedding, we might add). The evening ended on a sparkly note with a traditional sparkler exit for the newlyweds!
 
Congrats, Annalee & David!

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!
