Classic elegance is the best description of Travis and Kathleen’s wedding earlier this summer.  The couple held their reception in The Ballroom at The Willows and everything from the bride’s gorgeous satin and lace dress from Marie Gabriel Couture Bridal Pronovias to the cake from Classic Cakes Carmel  was classic and tasteful. The entire event came together flawlessly thanks to event coordination from Jessica Dum Wedding Coordination. Here are our favorite parts of the day courtesy of incredible wedding photographer Danielle Harris, who captured every single part of the magical event! It all started with the creamy, classic invitations.

Then the entire bridal party and their guests travelled on to The Willows where our staff was ready to continue the perfect day.

The Ballroom at The Willows is a waterside, classic venue in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Inside, everything was ready.  The gold chargers on the tables, sheer gold bows against the white linens and other shining touches really popped and continued the classic elegance vibe. Pink flowers at the head table provided some beautiful color to contrast with the gold.

Sprigs of greenery and white flowers were a key part of the décor.

The happy couple opted for one of the hottest wedding trends, a grazing table! Cheese, fruit, nuts, crackers…there was a little something for everyone.

After dinner, it was time to cut the cake.  It seemed a shame to slice into one this beautiful!  But, it was too delicious not to share!
