 [br]What was the most memorable moment of your day?

Emilie:  Matt and I both said seeing each other for the first time when I was walking down the aisle. Another moment that really sticks out to me is when Matt had the bouquet of flowers delivered to my room. It was such a sweet surprise and made me feel so special.

[br] Any advice for future bride/grooms?

Relax and really enjoy the day. Everyone always tells you this, and it’s really hard to do. But looking back on the day it really does go by so fast. And enjoy having all the people you love all in one place at the same time. It really is an amazing feeling

 [br]Funniest memory from your wedding day?

Emilie:  Matt and I both said when we were taking pictures in front of the state house and Dustin split his pants!!

 [br]If you could do it all over, would you change anything?

Emilie & Matt:  Nope!

 [br]Where did you go on your honeymoon?

Olé! Olé! Olé! Seriously though… what am I doing?! 28_bbmk_Indianapolis_Wedding_em14_2014I mentioned this on Instagram and I’ll mention it again here… It’s unfortunate for the bride/grooms that photographers aren’t allowed anywhere other than this exact spot. I’m guessing a few bad apple photographers ruined it for everyone.  To those planning their weddings, be sure to ask what kinds of rules churches have for wedding vendors. I remember, years ago, there was a Lutheran church that we (the photographers) weren’t even allowed to enter during the ceremony.  I’ve noticed that many couples are blind-sided by these restrictions the day before or on the day of their wedding.  In the past, we’ve had couples ask us to break the church rules… unfortunately, if we want to remain photographers in this city, that’s not an option. 🙂 As a matter of fact, I know of many photographers who are on the banned list for this church. So to photographers, be respectful and follow the rules. To couples, be sure to ask what the rules are before finalizing your church. And to church-appointed wedding coordinators, please know that we have a job to do and while there are a few bad apples, many of us are not.  We understand the need for some rules to keep the occasional new/clueless/classless photographer from becoming a distraction.  But, many times the rules are restrictive to the point that it adversely affects the photographs, and thus the couples’ memory of the wedding – and their perception of your church.  Please be flexible and consider both the level of professionalism of the photographers and the wishes of the couple getting married.  OK, off my soapbox!  🙂29_bbmk_Indianapolis_Wedding_em14_2014A fence around the circle?! Psh. MAKE IT WORK BOBBI! 😉
