Grant and Jennifer had such a gorgeous and classic wedding at French Lick Resort. They were surrounded by family and their closest friends. These two amazing people have so much love for one another! They are the kind of couple who are super fun, always laughing together and when planning their wedding day they knew having a great time was their first goal. They wanted an all around experience. They wanted an experience to remember and one that their family and friends would remember too.
When I first met Jennifer, she was so kind and sweet. We talked about all the things she had planned for her engagement session and wedding day and I fell in love. Jennifer is such an amazing person inside and out. I knew that Grant would be too and sure enough, we met up for their engagement session at West Baden and he was seriously all smiles. He never hesitated, not once, to do anything for her. Kiss her forehead, kiss her cheek, twirl, dip Jennifer and so much more. He was so amazing to her the entire time! I absolutely knew that the wedding would be amazing too. We had a drink together and I loved getting to know these two amazing people.
On the day of, Jennifer got ready in her hotel room at French Lick. We documented the beautiful details that Jennifer had been planning for so long. The invitation, the wax seal, gorgeous gown + bridesmaids dresses of the perfect green…the florals that were perfectly perfect for her vision. Her bridesmaids poured champagne and they toasted to this amazing day! To the love her and Grant share. And to the friendships that have brought them together in this special moment. She had her mom help her with the veil and gown. She buckled her heels and put in her wedding day earrings. This bride was ready to get married!
Grant and Jen said their vows to one another at Our Lady of The Springs in French Lick. It was quaint and beautiful. These two wanted nothing more than this moment. When it was over and they were ‘officially’ official…the fun began! They were now Mr. and Mrs. Grant Holder! We all hopped on a train car and headed to French Lick in style. We had fun with the wedding party and then with just the new married couple. When we wrapped things up…we all headed to an outdoor cocktail hour. Every single one of their guests had such an amazing time. Fresh hors d’oeuvre’s and cocktails, live music playing and the company of the newly married bride and groom. If I can give advice to anyone planning a wedding…it’s definitely to be present during your cocktail hour. This really gave Grant and Jennifer time to relax, grab a drink and enjoy all of their guests. I loved watching them mingle and have a great time.
Their reception was AMAZING. They had a live band…and what is better than live band? And Grant and Jennifer did well choosing one. They were so amazing! These two got to dance the night away in style. Twirling, enjoying a cocktail or two and dancing the night away with amazing people.
