Cari and Alex’s Classically Romantic Indiana Wedding

The Ingredients for an amazing Indiana Wedding

Working in wedding catering gives you a front-row seat to all the love and joy that comes with getting married. It’s no wonder that so many couples who work in the industry end up finding love themselves. Such is the case with Cari and Alex. They met while working on a weddings together with One World Catering. Soon, they found themselves at the start of their own love story. First-hand experience in weddings around Indiana gave them insight into exactly the dream vendor team that could make their late summer wedding absolutely perfect. Coordination by Ashley Weddings and Events oversaw all the final details, and the day was captured by Anna Clark Photography.

An easy start for this Bloomington Wedding

Cari and Alex bonded over their shared love of exploration and connecting meaningfully with people. When they started planning their own Indiana wedding, they knew that they wanted to create a celebration that was all about love, laughter, and good food. Taking advantage of our Stay Wilds rentals conveniently located on The Wilds property, they were able to soak in each of those elements with their bridal party at the start of the day. Glam was provided by Something Blue Stylists who brought fresh-faced beauty and easy romantic hair to bride, Cari.

The pair opted for an intimate first look, and took a quiet moment to themselves to exchange their vows and set their focus for the day.

Must-have florals brought the classic romance

They prioritized having a great party and chose a classic pink and white floral palette to create a romantic and sweet atmosphere. One of their early must-have vendors was Cathy Teeters Beautiful Weddings for florals. Cathy is one of our local favorites and perfectly captured the classic romantic feel that bride, Cari, was dreaming of. Cari and Alex also made sure to include personal touches throughout the event, with a bespoke neon sign photo backdrop and a signature cocktail menu that they created together.
