We had the BEST time planning Kirstin + Ben’s wedding at the home on Lake Wawasee and reception at the Oakwood Resort Hilltop! We had so much fun planning every tiny detail from their watercolor monogram to the stunning florals! Thank you Matt Carlson for capturing their day so well! We couldn’t have done it without our entire team: Amanda DeBusk Photography, A Party Apart, Something Blue Stylists, Oakwood Resort, Deoc Ensemble, Lakeside Entertainment, Accent Floral Design, Aubrey Kash Designs, and Sassie Cakes!
Kirstin and her mom were clients I was so sad to see go! We had the best time planning things down to the tiniest detail (see the intricate cookie favors with matching water bottles at the ceremony that match the menu, program, and invitation)! Kiristin lived in Indiana part of the time while we planned their Lake Wawasee wedding which is about 2.5 hours away from Indianapolis. She moved with her man in uniform to California so we had a mix of planning locally and far away for a destination wedding. Good communication is the key to planning a wedding when you don’t live locally and Kirstin and her mom were a dream!
It was a beautiful and FUN day full of big smiles (can you tell by how smiley Kirstin is in all these gorgeous pictures?!), happy tears, champagne, and lots of dancing! See all the dreamy goodness below from Amanda DeBusk. It was an honor to help Kirstin and her mom plan this beautiful backyard wedding on Lake Wawasee followed by a stunning reception at the Hilltop at the Oakwood which we totally transformed with the help of A Party Apart and Accent Floral Design. A big thanks below to a mix of Ft. Wayne, Indianapolis, and out of state vendors below!
