Sophia & Shaun | Malverde Wedding

Simplicity really can be an art form, as evidenced by Sophia and Shaun’s classy and modern wedding in May. A gorgeous white dress without any tulle or fluff that draped her body, a bouquet of happy sunflowers and roses, and wearing a sleek side bun and Badgley Mischka heels, Sophia was a Grecian goddess-like vision at the Westminster Presbyterian Church. Shaun clasped his hands nervously as she walked towards him for their first look, and the anxiety in the air dissipated as they held one another. “Show me your suspenders,” she said, and Shaun made motions as if he was going to strip right there in the church!

Their reception, held downtown at the Malverde cocktail bar, was packed full of well-wishers and dancers, Mexican food and round cakes. Food, festivities, and fun were the themes of the night, and it was a truly special and wonderful time. Here are just a few of my favorite images from Sophia and Shaun’s wedding day.

DIY Lavender Hair: Redux

A year ago, I shared my DIY purple ombré hair. This has been the most popular post of all time on my blog — much to my surprise! After going back to black for a little while, I felt the itch to change it up again and did my own silver/lavender hair!

I’ll be happy to write up a tutorial in the near future, but I’m still working out how to make the hair perfect. I’ve realized that silver is pretty finicky, and it’s not 100% where I want it to be.

But I’m always a little happier when my hair is a weird color, so I’m sharing a few shots! My friend and Indianapolis wedding photographer Anne was in town over the weekend and took a few photos for me.
