Meet Saralyn & Aaron! These two were so fun to work with. We love Indianapolis weddings, so we jump at the chance to shoot them! When Saralyn and Aaron reached out to us to do their wedding photography, we were pumped! If you would like to view their entire wedding gallery, click here (CLICK ME)! At the end of this post is Saralyn and Aaron’s wedding video done by Big Burrito Creative. Give it a listen!
Saralyn and her bridal party got ready in the morning at home! When it came time to put on her dress, Saralyn’s mom buttoned her in. The delicate lace details and cap-sleeve style of dress (paired with leather boots and a long, high pony tail) matched Saralyn’s sweet and fierce personality perfectly. After getting ready, Saralyn and Aaron had an EPIC first look. What made it even better was the fact that they included both their dogs in it! The sweet embrace and love shared between these two was so fun to capture. The whole day just felt light and easy and natural – everything was personalized and unique to Saralyn and Aaron! Of course, we also took some bridal party shots after the first look. Then we headed to the ceremony spot!
The ceremony and reception were held at Blu Falls Arts and Event Center in Indianapolis. We love when wedding day events are at the same location: less stress for the bride! Not that stress was a problem for Saralyn – She was nothing but happy on this big day! The ceremony location was stunning. The covered wooden platform overlooked a beautiful brook with rocks and lots of greenary. The whole thing was decked out with gorgeous floral arrangements and dreamy white fabric. The cozy location made it an even more romantic spot to get married! And just like that, the two were married!
The reception was just inside from the ceremony location – awesome! Family and guests found their way to their seats and then entered the newly weds! Saralyn and Aaron shared lots of dances, sweet moments with family, and lots laughs. The day included lots of dogs, a golf cart ride or two, and a marriage that is surely to last a lifetime. We loved having the opportunity to capture this awesome day for you guys. Best of wishes to you both!

Here is their beautiful wedding video by Big Burrito Creative!
Meet Jane & Jim! From the moment we met with Jim and Jane over coffee we knew we had to photograph their wedding. And It had nothing to do with the budget, or venue, however, I think you can tell by the photos that the Indianapolis Artsgarden is pretty fricking spectacular! The reason we knew that Jim and Jane had to join the roster of Dustin & Corynn brides and grooms was that they were authentic and crazy in love with each other, oh and they LOVE to laugh which is huge for Dustin because he thinks he is funny.
Jane & Jim’s wedding day went off without a hitch. We started the day at the Westin downtown Indianapolis where the ladies had gotten a hotel room to get all there hairs in place and their make up just right. But the best part was when Jane slipped into her dress and walked out into the room for all of her favorite people to see her for the first time. We then headed to Saint Peter & Paul Catholic church where these two lovebirds tied the knot. They then hopped on a trolley and off to downtown Indy we went. After an amazing time taking photos of these lovebirds, we arrived at our new favorite venue, Indianapolis Artsgarden! You may have walked through it or under it and didn’t even know. It is a giant glass dome in the middle of downtown Indianapolis intersection that is like five or six stories up off the ground, that on any ordinary day is just a public area connected to the circle center mall downtown.
Jim & Jane you guys were and continue to be such amazing people both inside and out. I’m not going to lie we both got a bit choked up during all the heartwarming toasts that were given in your honor. I hope once life settles with your new house and the honeymoon we can hang out.
And in case you missed their engagement session, it was equally awesome!
Meet Amber and Joe! We knew we were a good fit for each other the moment we sat down with these two lovebirds. What we didn’t know was that we would end up having our baby on the morning of their wedding! But rest assured we had all of our bases covered and our amazing friends Micala and Jordan stepped in to give these two some amazing photographs. Don’t take our word for it, take a look for yourself at these beautiful Indianapolis wedding photos at the famous Valley Vista Resort and Country Club just south of Indianapolis in Greenwood, Indiana.

Angela & Jake are such a great couple for so many reasons, and getting to know them over the past several months has been such a pleasure. Dustin and Jake both share a fascination for shoes for one thing. Their wedding day celebrated at the Saint Joan of Arc church could not have been more perfect, all week Dustin and I were praying that the rain they called for would stay away, and God heard our prayers and decided to do us one better and give us the most beautiful white winter wedding we could have ever asked for. Enjoy this Indianapolis wedding, I know we did!

When you think destination wedding in February your mind rushes with images of warm sandy beaches and gorgeous sunsets. For Melissa and Sean, their destination wedding took them back to their snowy hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana. There may have been snow on the ground and a cold breeze blowing, but the love between Melissa and Sean filled your heart and soul with warmth. That’s why we love Indianapolis wedding photography!
Melissa was truly stunning in her ballgown and Sean, the image of the perfect gentleman, in his classic black tuxedo. Eyes were on Melissa and her father as they began their journey down the aisle of St Luke Methodist in Indianapolis, Indiana. That’s when we snuck a peek at Sean to see his reaction of his gorgeous bride. There were hints of tears in Sean’s eyes and it was in that moment that you could see just how much he loved his bride. Those are the moments we love to capture! The ceremony had touched on Melissa’s musical background and featured a local vocal group which Melissa belonged to before moving to Washington D.C. The ceremony was gorgeous, classic and every girl’s dream.
With the Dinosphere and Water Clock, the perfect backdrop was set for the reception at the Indianapolis Children’s Museum. The reception was an amazing celebration of love, family, and friends. The Bishops, one of the hottest bands in the Indianapolis area, got everyone on their and feet and kept the celebration alive!
Melissa and Sean, thank you for letting us into your life. We are so thankful to have met you! Enjoy your new life as husband and wife!
Lots of love,
Dustin and Corynn McKibben
