Doug proposed to Tiffany during a Christmas trip to Japan, and before they even got on the flight home, Tiffany knew exactly where they wanted to get married. Tiffany had fallen in love with Irvington at first sight when she attended her first Halloween Fest with Doug. Since Doug had grown up there, they always knew that this close-knit, preserved neighborhood is where they would celebrate one of the best days of their lives. It was a special community full of amazing people and businesses. They wanted to utilize as much of Irvington and the local Indianapolis area businesses as possible. Within a week of returning to the states, the tent, tables, linens, and lighting were all booked, and then the crafting began.
Doug and Tiffany designed and made most of their décor, allowing them to save hundreds. Doug started by building a bar that would enable their guests to fill their pint glasses with the best of local brews. While Tiffany constructed flower boxes and grew wheat grass for decor.
Their wedding weekend was definitely filled with a lot of local Indy lovin’. They kicked off their wedding weekend enjoying some great slices of Jackamo's Pizza after their rehearsal. Following up dinner, they had fun playing a few rounds of bowling at Duck Pin Bowling in Fountain Square. The bride, bridesmaids, and bride's family stayed at The Nestle Inn in the heart of Chatham Arch the night before the wedding, staying up late to make the bouquets and boutonnieres.
On the special day, Tiffany started the day off with an intimate family breakfast. It was a perfect way to spend some quality time with her parents, siblings, and bridesmaids. After getting ready and adorning herself in her beautiful gown from ReTulled, it was time to head to the ceremony.
Located on the front lawn of the Benton House, guests were seating in the front of the property. Tiffany and Doug tied the knot on the steps of one of the most beautiful, historic houses in Indy.
After the ceremony guests relocated to the tent on the front-side of the property, for a fun filled Indy wedding reception. Mac Genie pull curbside for dinner service and their favorite Indy beers from Flat Bierworks and Outliers Brewery on tap.
Most of their family and friends were traveling from out of town for the wedding, they wanted to showcase as many of the things that they love about Indy as possible while keeping everything small, affordable and locally sourced. Their love for each other, and for their community, combined to create a truly special evening.
