Purdue Memorial Union Wedding | Indianapolis Wedding Photographer | Brad & Molly
Yesterday was absolutely lovely and so full of love that its hard to find the words to describe it. Brad & Molly stood out to us from the very beginning with their candid and silly love for each other. I knew immediately this was going to be a stunning day, even before I arrived at the venue.
Brad & Molly chose Purdue University's Memorial Union for their special day even though Brad is a Purdue graduate, and Molly is an Indiana University graduate. If you are from Indiana, you know how deep the competition goes. Maybe this was a great way to show off Molly's great ability to compromise?
Molly chose a gorgeous all lace champagne colored gown that just breathed, "bless your heart" with its classic southern charm. She complemented the gown with pearl accents and a very special bracelet her mother surprised her with. Engraved with "always remember your daddy loves you" to honor her father that passed. This was such a special gift from her mother.
Brad & Molly chose to share a private first look. The staircase helped build the anticipation between these two as Molly slowly walked toward her future with Brad.
We gathered together with their friends and family in an emotional ceremony that joined them together forever. I absolutely loved Brad's emotional reaction to Molly walking toward him, and hearing her mother say "her father and I do" as they shared that moment together was emotional for not only the guests, but for Rich and I as well.
Brad & Molly chose a small bridal party which only added to the love and intimacy of their special day.
How could we not tie in their IU vs Purdue battle?
During portraits, we were joined by Brad & Molly's adorable furbaby Sammy. How cute is this little guy?
When it was time to enter the reception, we were treated to gorgeous table setups with wildflowers, golden accents, and great food.
We were so happy that Brad & Molly chose "Lean On Me" for their first dance. The song perfectly suited their fun personalities.
Its so hard to say goodbye sometimes, but I know we will be seeing Brad & Molly in the future! Wishing you two all the best of love in your new life together!
