Tori + Brian 7*23*11

Tree Suites Garden*The Tudor Room
Bloomington, Indiana

Oh my sweet Tori…loved her from our first meeting! All this selfless bride wanted was for everyone to have an amazing time at her and her fiancé, Brian’s wedding. Pulling this summer time theme off perfectly, Tori chose elements of vibrant and bold colors with a touch of vintage class.
The ceremony was held at the IMU (Indiana Memorial Union) Tree Suite Garden. A cute and quaint space in the middle of regal student union where lifetime’s of love begin. Hearing the faint sounds of Vivaldi on strings, guests entered the gardens and were offered ice cold bottles of water as they headed to their seats on white chairs lined up in perfect rows. Finally, the bride arrives down the aisle with her dad on her right meeting her eager groom. The brides hand tied bouquet is made of fresh colorful sunflowers, pink and yellow roses, dark red dahlia’s and a hint of purple. A family friend and confidant, Sam, preforms the ceremony and the couple is wed!
Cocktail hour begins down the hall in the rich and regal Tudor Room. Dark brown wood frames the space. Hanging on the walls are beautiful oil paintings in thick, ornate gold frames. The bride chose to decorate with vintage light blue, light green and clear Ball jars in varying sizes, filled with more fresh flowers and glowing candlelight. Guests mingle with a cocktail while gazing at framed engagement photos of the bride and groom throughout the space.
The evening gets started with heartfelt introductions of all the bridal party, dinner, toasts and dances. The lights turn low and the party gets started! The fairy tale continued when Tori and Brian headed off to sunny Jamaica for their honeymoon, and are now starting their marital lives right here in B-town!
