Autumn in Indianapolis on Snippet & Ink | Part I

bride-groom-formal-portraits Autumn in IndianapolisWe’re happy to share that Emma + Brian’s wedding is up on Snippet & Ink! Autumn in Indianapolis is exactly what the season should be. Cool, crisp, and bursting with rich color. Emma and Brian were looking for a classic and sophisticated celebration that incorporated their love for all things Austin.

We began by creating a classic invitation suite with a custom crest, deep, marsala silk ribbon, and a gold wax seal. The marsala color was carried throughout the wedding in the bridesmaid dresses, florals, and table settings. We then created depth and dimension in the florals by combining shades of blush pink and cream, along with touches of greenery.

Stay tuned for Part II where we’ll share photos of the reception. Thanks to the team of amazing vendors that helped us to make everything possible!

Happy New Year from Team TNR

Happy New Year from Team TNR

December is a special month for many of us– the holidays, the end of another year, looking back at what we’ve experienced and achieved, looking forward to plans for the year to come. It also happens to be our birthday month. We’ve turned five! So on this NYE, we’re feeling extra celebratory and maybe even a bit sentimental.

We are so lucky to be in a business where we get to create memorable celebrations for our clients on their most special of days. It’s easy at times to get caught up in the smallest of details, the behind the scenes, the packing and unpacking of u-hauls at 2am, the not-so-glamorous sides of this industry. But in the undercurrent of everything we do is joy and gratitude. Gratitude for the opportunities, the experiences, the incredible people we get to meet and collaborate with each day, and for those of you who follow along on our journey and show us so much love through social media. To each and every one of you– thank you. A huge, warm, joyful, thank you.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year from Team TNR!
