Aaron and Ava : Wedding | Canal 337

Indianapolis Wedding Photographers

Wow, where do I even start?! Aaron and Ava got married on Friday and let me tell you, the day was just gorgeous. I suppose we should start from the beginning. I actually met Ava seven years ago when she was in her sister’s wedding. It wasn’t one of my first weddings back then. But now that I’ve shot so many since then it does seem like it was one of my firsts. I was thrilled to see Ava contacting me for her own wedding, after all these years. I got to know Aaron better at their engagement shoot and I’ve been looking forward to their big day for months!

I’ve been shooting weddings for 13+ years now but Ava and Aaron did a few new things that I hadn’t seen before. It was really fun to shoot for them! The weather was absolutely beautiful on Friday. A near-perfect September day, in my opinion. Ava picked the increasingly popular but still unique terracotta as her main color. She said she went to four bridal stores looking for the perfect dress she was told didn’t exist. She obviously found what she was looking for and she was just stunning. And I love, love the veil she chose. I’ll never get tired of shooting with veils, especially longs ones that like to be dramatic for me.

“they had twirls, dips, and lifts in their dance”

Aaron and Ava decided they wanted to walk from their church ceremony back to their reception venue. They timed it out beforehand and figured it would take us 15 minutes to walk. We had an hour and a half for portraits and it was super fun to stroll along the Canal Walk in Indianapolis with them. We had the freedom to stop wherever I saw the “good light” and I was having a blast! After we got back to the reception they had their first dance outside, overlooking the river, and right next to all their guests enjoying cocktail hour. This was different and so beautiful! You’ll see they had twirls, dips, and lifts in their dance. It was impressive. Also, is it just me, or do they look especially stunning in a black and white photo? Maybe it’s their matching dark hair, her veil style, his tux, their striking good looks, or the fact Ava reminds me of a young Elizabeth Taylor.

I loved what their friends and family had to say about them in all the toasts. And they washed each other’s feet at their reception, which was super sweet. The party went to the top floor of Canal 337 to have a fun evening of dancing, including some swing dance lessons for everyone. There were actually three #evysbrides at the wedding and I loved getting to see them and their growing families again! It was just a lovely, lovely day and I’m so happy for these two to begin their life together!
