Angie and Erik’s “Sweet” Wedding | Real Wedding


Venue: Indiana Memorial Union

Colors: Apple Green, Black

Inspiration: Sweets, Fun


We at Social Butterfly were so thrilled to be a part of Angie and Erik’s wedding. As a former butterfly and current event planner, Angie designed and planned her stunning wedding down to their very smallest detail. The ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were decorated with beautiful green, black, and white touches and entertainment for hours! Bobbie+Mike were nice enough to give us some of their truly stunning photography from the day which show all the details and a few of our adorable couple!

Since the bride and groom started dating while attending Indiana University, returning to the IMU on campus was very meaningful for the two of them. The ceremony, which took place in the Tree Garden Suite, was fun and light-hearted as the wedding party walked down the aisle to some of the couple’s favorite love songs by Colbie Calliat, John Mayer, and Jason Mraz. Adding more personal touches, the groom’s aunt, Julie Alvarez, read an excerpt from Dr. Suess’s “The Places You Will Go.” Angie and Erik’s ceremony was a perfect expression their own young, happy-go-lucky personalities.

Following the ceremony, guests were invited to the IMU’s Solarium for a quick cocktail hour, which was beautifully decorated with countless green and white paper lanterns and dramatic green lighting. Immediately after, the extravagant reception in Alumni Hall was revealed featuring modern floral designs, vivid lighting, fun table settings, and more!  Throughout the night, more entertainment was available for guests, including a photo booth and caricature artist. Upbeat music also continually played, and guest danced into the early morning hours. Thanks Bari Kuhlman for help and as always for the amazing staff at the IMU. Teresa and Karen of Artful Blooms, you outdid yourselves! The amazing lighting by Mike Schwandt set all the details of the room off perfectly.
