As you can see, there is nothing cookie-cutter about this chic boutique.  All of the fashion-forward clothing is provided by chic and fun up-and-coming labels.  You will not find these designs in your local big name department store.  The staff and owner are absolutely fantastic and eager to serve each and every client that walks through the door.  If you live in Indianapolis, check out the Broadripple location.  If you live a bit further south, check out the Bloomington location.  That’s where that “other” school is located…I can say that as a Purdue Alumni. 🙂 But whatever you do, don’t delay.  Spring is right around the corner and you definitely want to be prepared with a stunning romper or gorgeous dress.  Hey, maybe you’re having a wedding that calls for something out of the ordinary for the bridesmaids.  I bet Niche has a collection for you checkout.

Lights, Camera, Action | Lahr Atrium | Lafayette, IN | Ratpak Wedding DJ


 

Bride and groom

Everyone says wedding photography is hard. Yes, it can be challenging at times, but if you ask me the wedding DJ has one of the toughest jobs.  Think about the preparation involved for a wedding DJ. They have to have a collection of music suitable for the cocktail hour, bridal party entrance, dinner, and dancing well into the night. You know every wedding couple is different, thus their collection must be vast to cover many genres and eras of music.  That’s only the beginning! When you consider the load in/out of gear depending on the size venue and parking locations, that can be very time consuming and strenuous work! This makes my photography job seem like a piece of cake.

I was however very impressed with Nick and his crew at Ratpak Mobile DJs in Lafayette, IN.  Not only did they effortless rock the house, they killed the lighting too!  As a photographer, we greatly appreciate a well-lit venue. The lighting craftsmanship at shown at this wedding at the Lahr Atrium in downtown Lafayette was nothing short of amazing! Check out all the pretty colors and amount of light for this large venue. I also have a blog up on this wedding if you’d like to see more fantastic wedding photography from Mike Washington Photography.

Christie & Jason | Chateau Thomas Winery Wedding | Plainfield


Bride and groom

When you sit down to a great glass of wine, do you ever think about where that wine was made?  Have you ventured out to the local winery?  If not, you should!  I think Chateau Thomas Winery in Plainfield, IN is such an amazing place to go visit and try out their various offerings.  If you’re truly a wine lover, then why not have a Winery Wedding.  Congrats to Christie and Jason on their recent winery wedding!  We had a blast creating and shooting at this magnificent venue.  The Chateau Thomas Winery is an awesome place for a wedding.  I was super excited that we were allowed to capture a few images in the wine cellar.  To top that, once the wedding day was over and most of the guest had gone home, we got to sit and enjoy the great glass of wine!

Stunning Wedding Dresses, Affordable Prices | Indianapolis


Nancy's Bridal Boutique wedding dresses

During this past summer I had the grand opportunity to meet Nancy Homsy, owner of Nancy’s Bridal Boutique.  We chatted briefly before I proposed setting up a photo shoot using a few stunning wedding dresses from the boutique.  I had never made this approach to anyone before, let alone an owner of such a great store.  To my surprise, she kindly said yes!  I was on cloud nine already and had even set anything up.  Anyhow, I waited awhile and prepared myself with a model, makeup artist, hair artist, and venue and finally got around to pulling off an epic photo shoot. (Blog: Wedding Vendor Extraordinaire)

I say all that to get to this, I was amazed by the breathtaking beauty of this boutique.  Nestled in the Castleton area of Indianapolis, IN, you will find this gem which every bride-to-be should visit.  I know each and every bride out there has been dreaming of their wedding day since they were 13, maybe even before that, and I’m sure who have that specific dress in mind.  I bet you will definitely find what you are looking for here at Nancy’s.  I can just image a bride and her mom, and bridesmaids spending hours in here trying on dresses and sipping mimosas, until they see that one!  The staff is so friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable that you may not make it  past the first round of mimosas.  Let’s not forget the guys!  They also have a nice selection of wedding tuxes available too.

So, don’t wait.  Reach your Cloud Nine and say YES to the Dress at Nancy’s Bridal Boutique!

Ashley & Kevin | Valle Vista | Gatsby Wedding


 

horse drawn carriage with bride and groom

 

This gorgeous Gatsby Wedding took place at the Valle Vista Golf Club and you couldn’t ask for a better day or bridal party!  Ashley and Kevin were an absolute pleasure to work with for their wedding and we wish them many wonderful years to come!  I was impressed with the professionalism of the golf club and the provided transportation throughout the day.  The groom and bridal party where driven to the wedding in the “Gatsby’s,” which are these cool little decked out golf carts.  They even had a cooler in the engine compartment to keep the champagne cold. 😉 The bride and father were delivered to the wedding on a horse-drawn carriage, which was so stunning to see coming around the corner and up to the ceremony.  I just loved the different areas around the club that were great for photography.  It gave us options when shooting the bridal party.  Mike Washington Photography is definitely a lover of all flash techniques and even though the sun goes down, we still have the ability capture great images outdoors at night and in dark reception areas as you’ll see below.

This wedding was definitely one that reminded me of a storybook prince and princess.  I hope that another bride and groom comes along and uses this same venue, because I’m ready to rock the shots again!
