Jessica & Ben's Wedding

posted on: July 3, 2008

What do you get when you combine an organic creamery and two people in love? Jessica & Ben's wedding!

I believe that Jessica & Ben are the FIRST couple to be married at Trader's Point Creamery in Zionsville, IN! With its rolling hills, pastural views, intimate loft, and DELICIOUS local and organic foods, what's not to love?!

The girls started their day off at the salon, getting their hair done, with makeup to follow at Ben's family home...

The first thing I saw when I walked into the house was this huge white plastic bag hanging from the second floor railing, with a note...

Once everyone was ready to go, Jessica and Ben saw each other for the first time in the hallway..

Before the guests arrived, the family members and wedding party gathered for some casual portraits, several of which included the local fauna, who wanted to be a part of the action...

The details were absolutely beautiful, from the autumn colored bouquets, to the handmade yamakas and ketubah, to the leaf placecards that coordinated with each table and the half floral, half edible centerpieces...

The weather had threatened rain all week long, so a tent was prepared just in case. However, what was supposed to be rain, ended up being a sunny 85ºf+ day! Instead of holding off the rain, the tent helped shade the guests from the heat of the sun!

After the ceremony was a beautiful cocktail hour where Jessica & Ben were able to mingle with guests while they were enjoying appetizers of local in-season foods, and cool drinks before heading into the Creamery loft for dinner...

(There something I really love about this candid portrait of Jessica that I just can't put my finger on!)

The harp and flute provided light sounds for the dinner hour... but they also had a few tricks up their sleeves with some unexpected rock tunes thrown in like Stairway to Heaven. My husband would love this picture... mainly because of all the cheese stored in the background!

I guess Jessica had seen a picture of a dog made out of mums somewhere and decided she just had to have one! I've definitely never seen anything like this before! Neither had the florist!

Ben's brother gave a great speech about how Ben has become a more loving person since meeting Jessica, it was really sweet...

Where's the dance floor you ask? Why- there wasn't one! It was just a wonderfully intimate dinner and dessert with good friends and family...

Jessica & Ben - thank you so much for letting me capture your wedding day!! I hope you continue to improve each other's lives every day!! Oh yes, and I think you win the award for the most "Green Wedding" so far!!!

  1. i love the idea of getting married at an organic creamery! that's awesome.

    and hello from a not-too-distant photog neighbor in missouri. :-)

  2. Anne! Thank you so much! The photos look amazing! I <3 the cows, even if they didn't cooperate as much as we wanted!

    Also, in case any of your brides in the area ask - we actually had the catering from The Juniper Spoon out of Crawfordsville. I would recommend them any day! She (the owner) uses almost entirely foods from her own county and her own garden, and did great features of the Trader's Point cheeses!

  3. all I can say is HOLY COW!!! :-D That's my joke for the day. ;) I LOVED the details for this wedding. :)
