I am so excited to finally be able to share this wedding today! Mark and Lauren are such a fun, yet extremely romantic, couple who really know how to entertain! They were married on October 23rd at the Radisson Hotel at Star Plaza in Merrillville, Indiana near Lauren's hometown.
It does not get more romantic and bridal than having a pink and purple wedding! Lauren did a fantastic job selecting everything from the color of the bridesmaids dresses down to the color of her shoes. Mark Amelse with Amelse Photography was a blessing when we had to switch to our rain plan for photos. He escorted the bridal party around the huge hotel getting all of the creative shots the bride and groom were wanting. Do not miss the gorgeous floral arrangements created by Patrick and crew at House of Fabian!
As a passionate fisherman, Mark was able to incorporate his love for fishing in the groom's cake. The two ring-bearers carried fishing poles down the aisle with a ring tied on the end of each. Lauren, being the crafty bride, handmade pink and white spheres that were hung from the pergola at the ceremony. The pergola was made by Mark and Lauren and now resides in their backyard. Crafty, crafty!!
Four Leaf Events was pleased to be able to provide the uplighting for the ceremony and reception which added a great ambiance for the party. At the reception, a real-life glee club from Purdue University got the crowd to their feet with their version of "Shout".
It was so rewarding to work with this very special couple because of the love that surrounded them from every corner of the room. You can witness this love in the the highlight video filmed and created by Bob Ridge with IndyVisual on our next blog. It will be worth the wait!
Congratulations, Mark and Lauren! May your life together see many blessings and great happiness...
