Laura & Evan

The ceremony was set at Bryan Park at the exact tree that Evan proposed to Laura. The setting was so beautiful in the fall with colorfully changing leaves. Laura made her own diy floral paper backdrop that we hung from her special tree, which added to the beauty of the ceremony site. And of course, their dog Ruby was there for all of it!

Sycamore Farms was transformed for the reception.  Tables had unique quirky floral arrangements with wooden elements or lanterns and vivid yellow florals and succulents. Laura’s mom, Nancy, created custom table runners, yellow & gray patterned, which went over a linen textured sand linen. Instead of table numbers, the bride and groom chose their favorite Bloomington landmarks. On the dance floor, Laura wanted a fun ribbon chandelier – which we had so much fun creating.

Every detail was carefully thought of with making the guests as comfortable as possible. They offered blankets for chilly guests and flip flops for the women to change into for dancing shoes! For dessert, they had over 20 different types of homemade pies and a rice crispies cake for the groom! During cocktail hour, IU’s acapella group Another Round sang as guests played corn hole and drank the signature cocktails.

After the cake cut, Laura had a fun surprise for Evan – a surprise flash mob! Evan was sat down in a chair and Laura started the fun dance number with bridal party members, with all guests eventually all joining in for this dedication to Evan.
