FROM THE EDITOR One of the benefits of working in the wedding industry is the joy of working with happy couples on a daily basis. It’s hard to imagine anyone being grumpy while trying on wedding gowns or going to a cake tasting. Telling the stories of these real weddings is what we do at WeddingDay Magazine. This spring, Indiana weddings took center stage in the national media. And our story was not told in a positive way. We have always believed that our magazine is an inclusive one that welcomes brides of all races, nationalities and sexual orientations. We also believe that we feature the best vendors in the State of Indiana and Michigan and know that those vendors believe in the power of love and acceptance as much as we do. Of course, we can always do a better job of making sure everyone feels welcome and part of our magazine. Let us know if you have an idea or would like to have your wedding featured. Our editorial team is always on the lookout for great stories and photography as we strive to provide the best guide for brides. In that vein, we are launching a new website that allows couples to get up to date on the latest in gowns, décor, bouquets and rings, while at the same time, helping to plan a wedding that reflects the personalities of the couples starting their lives together.

MAY 24, 2014 SOUTH BEND, INDIANA PHOTOGRAPHED BY JOSEPHINEY PHOTOGRAPHY

ALICIA & JEFF MENSAH

You’ve got to love your friends, especially when they bring two people together as husband and wife. Mutual friends in Chicago introduced Alicia Highsmith and Jeff Mensah. While love at first sight can be debated, this couple knew immediately that there was a spark between them that was special.

romance on the water Classic Elegance Redefined

The Proposal Jeff, who is from London, proposed during a romantic sunset cruise in Florida. He rented a private gondola for a tour. “While posing for a picture with the beautiful sunset, he got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. I was so overjoyed I said ‘yes’ to my best friend,” says Alicia, who is from South Bend.

The Ceremony Alicia said her favorite part of the ceremony was the look on her husband’s face when she was walking down the aisle toward him.

The Reception Carrying through their theme of elegance and a water backdrop (remember the gondola proposal), the two had their reception at Century Center of South Bend with the rushing waters of the St. Joseph River behind them. “Similar to the way Jeff proposed, we were able to experience our special evening ‘on water’ with a beautiful sunset in sight,” says Alicia.

The Dress The bride’s mom and sister took a train to Chicago for a special fall afternoon of wedding dress shopping in the big city. Alicia was fortunate enough to find the perfect dress almost immediately. “As I walked out of the fitting room, my mom/ sister’s facial expressions confirmed my thoughts,” she says. While she didn’t want to make a rash decision, she looked around for about another week and then went back and made the purchase.

the Color Palette Gray, silver and white were the central colors used in this stylish and elegant wedding.

elegance and ease at the eiteljorg: a museum quality wedding

The proposal Leah and Steve had looked at a ring while in Seattle and she was suspicious he had bought it for her. But he told her he was not able to get that one and they had to look at some different options. She was fine with that because marrying him meant more than a particular ring. “He then turned and pulled out the ring we saw in Seattle,” Leah says.

The ceremony Leah and Steven added meaning to the ceremony by using Steve’s brotherin-law Matty, as the officiant. The couple also incorporated different colored ribbons in a hand-tying ceremony to symbolize two becoming one. They tied Leah’s grandmother’s wedding band onto the end of the braid to honor her grandparents who had been married 60 years.

34

The venue The ceremony and reception were oh-so-veryconvenient for guests who walked from one to the other at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis. The couple chose the venue because of its downtown location, the museum gardens and the beautiful circular ballroom with mahogany accents.

The CAKE An elegant, simple gold cake topper sat on the top of their light, refreshing sweet treat. The cake was flavored with lemon and raspberry with textured icing adorned with fresh cut flowers in peach and light pink with flowing greenery.

WHAT WE

love

“Guest Libs” tucked into the pocket of the folded napkins allowed wedding guests to add some unexpected details about the upcoming honeymoon (we hear Table 12 was particularly creative).

The décor Leah had her heart set on making large Geronimo balloons to save some money and add some whimsy to the big day. She didn’t realize it would take eight hours to cut the tissue paper, staple and inflate the balloons.

WHAT WE

The ceremony “One of my favorite memories of the ceremony is my dad walking me around the walnut tree grove. It was a peaceful, personal moment and we could see everyone waiting for us through the trees,” Lauren says. Parchment bags were transformed into unconventional programs. The bags contained pink and blush rose petals to be tossed at the newlyweds.

The details Oh where do we begin? This is Lauren’s forte and she said her penchant for detail work actually is a genetic trait she inherited from her mother and grandmother. Everyone contributed to the special touches (we can only list a few!): a restored 1945 John Deere tractor; the table number stands made of reclaimed wood from the big barn; caramel corn from the Ocean City boardwalk; the signature cocktails: Lolo (the bride’s nickname) Smash and Tommy Manhattan, and the antipasto charcuterie course as a nod to the couple’s picnic at Versailles. 42

the dress Lauren found the Monique Lhuillier gown while visiting her sister in Scottsdale, Arizona. “When I tried on ‘the one,’ for once my dad was speechless,” she says. The dress features a beaded floral and a leafy-pattern bodice. The fern detail was used throughout the décor on everything from stamps on the invitations to lush Boston and Tiger ferns located throughout the ceremony and reception.

The family farm The Family Farm: Love of family brought the wedding to Lauren’s maternal grandparents’ farm – The Fisher Farm in Franklin, Indiana. The 60-acre farm has been in the family since 1865 and was the site of some of Lauren’s most treasured childhood memories, including picking blackberries and strawberries right from the garden and playing hide-and-go-seek in the cornfields.

The color palette The nine bridesmaids matched the Indiana summer sky wearing variegated shades of blue, Lauren’s favorite color. Navy menu cards tied with twine and fern and vintage French ticking striped dinner napkins adorned the farm tables.

the cake The cake - a stunning five-tier creation combining ruffles, flowers and details from the bridal gown - completed the look. The groom’s cake featured a Yale bulldog rowing a Longport Beach Patrol lifeguard boat.

11th Annual Table Design Charity Event Written by Monica Richard, MBC -Mon Amie Events, Inc Photos by Jennifer Driscoll Photography & Andrew Scalini Photography

K. sherrie and company mcnamara flowers

The Indiana Chapter of the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC) celebrated its annual event benefiting the American Cancer Society at Sahm’s Atrium at the Tower on March 7th and 8th. Now in its 11th year, this event included a weekend of designer tablescapes created by Indiana’s elite florists, wedding planners and event professionals. Specialty tablescapes and vignettes for weddings, wedding events (bachelorette parties and showers) and social events filled the space for the weekend celebration.    Popular wedding themes including the 1920s Gatsby inspiration and barn style wedding took center stage, along with cutting-edge looks for couples with more contemporary styles in mind. This year, there were additional tables to honor non-profit charities close to individual designer’s passions, adding another layer of depth to the themes of the event. Proceeds from ticket sales and other contributions were donated to the American Cancer Society to honor ABC member Betty Jackson. More info about the event, along with additional photos, can be found by visiting: www. artofthetable.info

the VISION For our one-of-a-kind inspiration shoot, we wanted to take the current trends of 2015 and turn them up a notch. With blush being the color of the year for many brides, we focused on a beautiful ombre to blush palette with pops of gold and the surprise of polka dots.

the CENTERPIECES The floral arrangements were soft and romantic with protea, roses and vines.

the CEREMONY Dots made of flower petals lined the aisle, which lead to a bright and playful acrylic arch with hanging orchids, metallic gold polka dots, and crystal globes.

The DÊcor A lavish king’s table greeted guests walking into the reception. From the large, crystal floral arrangements down to the gold-dotted menu cards, every detail delighted the senses. Large, gold foil balloons spelled out L-O-V-E and soft pink uplighting enhanced the mirrored walls and the high ceilings.

The HAIR & MAKEUP Soft, natural makeup and romantic hair adorned with a beaded hairpiece and gold polka-dotted fingernails added up to perfection.

BEHIND THE SCENES

hair Soft and flowing waves serve as a complement to the beautiful gowns. A headpiece and a more relaxed updo were created for the reception.

MAKEUP The inspiration for the makeup was the model’s natural beauty and captivating eyes. A deep wine lip color syncs perfectly with the dark plum calla lilies.

The cake and dessert table The sweets table is adorned with a chalkboard-based cake, a glittery gold vintage cake and a blush, ruffled floral cake. Goldglittered doughnuts, blush-colored macaroons with raspberry jam filling and blush-colored Whoppers add as much sweetness as one table can hold.
