hotography documented the couple’s big day. The Rings: After sneakily obtaining access to her private Pinterest ring board for ideas, Nick was able to surprise Kaylee with a vintage-style engagement ring that included a center diamond and channel diamonds on the side. He bought the ring and its matching wedding band from J.C. Sipe Jewelers in Indianapolis, a shop owned by family friends, and where his grandfather and father both purchased engagement rings for their wives. Kaylee, unaware of the family tradition, originally purchased Nick a tungsten ring from a big box retailer. However, that ring fell off Nick’s hand not long after the wedding and was replaced by a custom piece by J.C. Sipe. The Music: Tim Reed, of Carry Me Music Publishing, played piano for the ceremony, alongside Nick’s younger brother Jake. For the reception, the couple hired Dash DJ & Sound Productions. The Food: The couple chose Terry’s Catering to provide the meal on their big day, which both praised highly for their flexibility in working with their budget, and the quality of the food. (“I don’t know why you would go with anyone else,” says Nick.) They opted
for a buffet-style meal with barbecue beef brisket, chicken in a pesto cream sauce, roasted sweet potatoes, broccoli, fettuccine with aioli sauce, salad and rolls as options. The Cake: The couple wanted cupcakes, but also wanted to do a traditional cake cutting at the wedding. Sugar Daddy’s Cakes and Catering came up with the perfect solution, allowing the couple to pick a three-tiered wedding cake with the bottom two layers being artificial. The couple cut into the top layer and dined on that, while guests had their choice of red velvet, white, chocolate or lemon poppy seed cupcakes.
The Men’s Apparel: Nick’s close group of friends included a man who was also getting married the same summer. Since the entire group of friends would be in both weddings, the men opted to select one gray suit for everyone to wear to both weddings. For the Tate wedding, the couple accessorized Nick and his groomsmen with black shoes, black belts, black pocket squares for a classic look, plus funky socks from each of their respective universities for a fun personal addition. The Primping: Kaylee had her hair and makeup done at Hair International Day Spa on the day of the wedding. The Printing: The couple ordered their invitations from VistaPrint. The Honeymoon: The couple booked a honeymoon in Jamaica through Travel Leaders of Indianapolis. wg
