The language of love has never rang so true as it did for college sweethearts Lainie and Jack. After meeting through their university’s speech and debate team, their close friendship turned romantic. The couple continued to pursue their love of performance with each other as they joined a cabaret show. In what turned out to be a complete surprise for the self-proclaimed “Nancy Drew”, Lainie was stunned when Jack proposed right before the show, with family and friends close by to join in on the amazing moment!
Given Lainie’s affection for theater, the Indianapolis Artsgarden was an easy choice for their reception. Lainie had been dreaming of the modern and chic space ever since she performed there with her third grade choir! For their ceremony, Jack and Lainie went in a more traditional direction with an old Gothic style church.
Now it was on to the dress! Lainie found her true match made in heaven when she spied the gorgeous Laurie ballgown at the very first shop she went to. Between the smooth satin, and the timeless princess silhouette, she knew trying it on was a must! Lainie was taken not only by how she felt in the gown, but by the reaction of everyone else she had brought with her! The intricate lace details gave her that extra special something she had been hoping to find.
The big day was filled with joy and excitement from start to finish for the newlyweds. Both bride and groom were so grateful for their first look, a chance to be present in the moment just the two of them.
Jack and Lainie decided it wouldn’t be a true celebration without a duet performance. Family and friends were totally surprised and wowed by Lainie and Jack’s rendition of Aladdin’s “A Whole New World”!
The sleek city venue, bursting with natural light, was decorated in a light blue and white palette. Twinkling lights wrapped around tall greenery added to the glamorous décor. The new Mr. and Mrs. wasted no time dancing up a storm with their family and friends, until the very last minute the DJ had to close the party down! But for this fun loving couple and their guests, the celebrations continued into the wee hours as they headed to an after party and finally some late night eats to cap off the night. A magical affair as lively as this duo ever could’ve hoped for!
