In July, we were invited to photograph Jenny + Berto’s amazing wedding day in Indianapolis! It was a beautiful, sunny day in downtown Indy. Though Jenny and Berto did not want to see each other before the ceremony, we did have some time for separates portraits with their attendants after they were dressed. I had an assistant with me for the day, so we were able to split up and do portraits of each side simulteanously. Downtown Indianapolis has beautiful monuments and squares that lend itself well to wedding portraits!
From there, we headed to the ceremony, which took place at the State Capitol building just down the street from the hotel. It was such an amazing space – so large, beautiful and well-lit! A gorgeous chuppah and ketubah were all set up in the center atrium. Their interfaith ceremony, blending their Argentinian and Jewish heritages, was just beautiful. (I know I’m using that word a lot!) They had so many personal touches throughout the day, but one I especially loved was when they used a Chinese finger trap as their “unity” ceremony – this was a tribute to their first date, which took place at an arcade. It was a complete surprise to everyone in attendance!
After the ceremony, we shot portraits in the State Capitol, and then traveled to the neighborhood around their reception venue for additional portraits as the sun began to set. At their reception at the Fountain Square Theatre, guests were entertained by sweet and hilarious toasts, a lively hora, and lots of dancing! We ended the evening with some night portraits beneath the marquee and on the roof of the theatre. Mazel Tov to Jenny and Berto!
