A Spring Wedding at The Willows Indianapolis Indiana | Neil & Andrea | 05-20-17

The Wedding day

I met Neil and Andrea almost a year ago at one of my 2016 weddings. I was so so so excited when they asked me to be apart of their special day. May 20th, 2017 was a typical spring day in the midwest. The night before the wedding it was a monsoon of rain. The sky just would not stop raining. I had a feeling that the rain would changed Neil and Andrea’s big day plans slightly. Then the morning of the wedding was overcast and chilly. By the time it was picture time the clouds had parted it was warming up and it was humid! None of this really mattered my beautiful bride and handsome groom where saying I do and one of the prettiest venues The Willows on Westfield. We knew for sure even if the ceremony had to be inside due to the saturated ground we wanted out-door photos. I did a search beforehand and found the perfect spot not far from the main building.

The Ceremony

We were so thankful for The Willows on Westfield staff and employees they were so great moving the outdoor planned wedding inside, they did a wonderful job! The ceremony was sweet and performed by the brides brother which made it extra special.  Neil and Andrea had family and friends travel from all over to be apart of this special day.

The Reception

The Banquet hall at The Willows on Westfield was simply stunning from the white linens to the touch of greens on the chairs and the super neat ceiling lights. The Dj Jeremy from Dj Direct kept the night running super smoothly and the dance floor was hopping all night!

Here are some of my favorites from Neil & Andrea’s special day.

The cake topper was from Andrea’s grandparents wedding who got married in 1951. They were married for 57 years. Andrea’s Grandma passed away in 2009. After Andrea’s grandpa passed away last year, we discovered the cake topper and brought it back for Andrea’s brother Eric’s wedding last September and then again for their wedding.
