Nicki + Justin

Words cannot express how much I adore Nicki and Justin. They are both such genuine people who live for each other.

Ken and I were so happy to hear that they were getting married at The Mavris in downtown Indianapolis. We LOVE that venue!!! In fact, we love it so much that when I was selecting photos for the blog, I first ended up with over 100 (which is crazy), then narrowed it down to about 75. I knew I couldn't post 75 photos in one blog because it would never load correctly, so I forced myself to narrow it down even further. I seriously agonized over this for 2 days! I think I ended up with 41.

Here are a couple of my favorite getting ready shots. Nicki's friend and bridesmaid, Meghan Cutsumbis, provided the makeup. Meghan is a makeup artist based in Dallas, Texas. She did an awesome job!!!

Me and my shoe shots. I loved the dramatic window light here.

The dress. (See how cool this venue is?)

Meanwhile, Ken was with the guys on the 3rd floor and caught this one of Nicki's dad preparing for his speech.

The guys wore Puma Speed Cats with their tuxes. Rock on!

I'm not going to lie -- I'm incredibly proud of this photo.

This was just moments after their first look.

Justin, you are one handsome groom!

And hello, GORGEOUS bride! These next few are some of my favorites from the day.

When Nicki contacted me about wedding photography, she said she wanted an industrial, photojournalist, fashion feeling to her photos. I hope I didn't disappoint.

She nailed that pose, don't you think?

I love this!

You guys know I love the next two. By the way, Tolly Foster and Nicki's family provided all the flowers.

This is one of my favorite group shots I have ever taken!

All the guys are looking good.

And so are the girls!

I adore this photo not just because it's a great shot of the guys, but because all the girls are headed up the stairs.

The caterers served fresh lemonade for the guests to enjoy during the ceremony. How cool is that? (P.S. I had some and it was really good.)

This is pure happiness.

Taken during the golden hour, just minutes after the ceremony concluded. This is my favorite light!

Classic Cakes in Carmel created this delicious beauty. Hands down, they are the BEST in Indiana.

Here is Nicki's dad giving his speech. It was so touching. I don't know if I have ever seen such a proud papa.

Hoaglin Fine Catering provided the delicious cuisine. The theme was "miniature childhood favorites" and the food included things like mini cheeseburgers, tiny caeser salads, fried macaroni and cheese bites, soup in shooter glasses, and more. It was all so delicious!

Nicki's and Justin's first dance (and reason #207 why we love The Mavris).

The sweet father daughter dance. I love everything about this photo.

I'm going to end with this fun shot of the crew dancing. Go Meghan!

Nicki and Justin, we had a blast at your wedding!!! We absolutely loved every detail. Ken and I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!


  1. Lindsay & Ken - These are *PERFECT* We cannot express enough how much we appreciate your doing our photography and being our friends! You always have a place to stay in Chicago, don't forget!

  2. Those bridesmaid dresses are to die for! I wish when my friends got married, they picked something so cute. Dangit!

    Amazing shots. Nicki is a doll!

  3. Oh wow, these are amazing. I'm loving the details and all the urban photos! Great job, Lindsay and Ken!

  4. This is my all time favorite venue. This was a really fun day!
