kara + jordan :: indianapolis art center

When their original photographer moved to Washington, DC (miss you, Amanda!) and I got the opportunity to meet with Kara, I was all in. First of all, her name is WAS a sentence. If you know me, you know how much I love sentence names. Secondly, the wedding that she described to me sounded nothing short of perfection. I was THRILLED to be a part of it.

And, as you will see, it didn’t disappoint. They literally had the perfect wedding. Everything was just as they’d wished for. At one point during dinner, I turned to Micah (my ace second shooter) and said, “there is more love for Kara and Jordan in this tent than I can even put into words.” And it was true. These two are loved.

Let’s talk about this dress. When Kara showed me this dress, things went a little crazy in my head. I’m obsessed with this dress. First of all: blush. Second of all: insanely gorgeous. And Kara knows the way to my creative and stylish heart, because she texted me a photo of her Louboutin bag as she was leaving the store.

And, as first looks go, this one has to be one of my all-time favorites. Seriously, they’re THAT adorable.
