Vintage Glam Wedding at 20West Newburgh

Wedding

Katie & Bobby | Newburgh, IN

078.jpgOur hearts were so full and our cameras were SO happy as we spent the day celebrating this sweet new marriage!! From the vintage glam reception at 20 West, to working with a dream team of amazing vendors…this wedding was incredible from start to finish!!

Katie and her bride tribe started the day off sipping mimosas and getting pampered at Maison 200!  This gorgeous, historic home has the perfect combination of modern, high end touches and timeless charm. A dreamy space + a sweet bride = pure PERFECTION????Our photographer hearts were FULL of inspiration & the joyful giggles of the gals meant we were in heaven!!  Ashley & Ellie made an unstoppable duo as they worked their magic on hair…and Brooklyn & Chelsea wrapped up each girl’s look with flawless makeup!  And then, watching these talented ladies transform Katie into a bride was pretty magnificent!

After Katie slipped into her stunning gown from House of White, she quietly added the finishing touches to her bridal look.  There’s something so elegant & sincere about a bride calmly putting the final touches together…the jewelry, the veil, the shoes…Katie was glowing with joy & anticipation!!

Meanwhile, across town, Bobby and his groomsmen were having their own little party as they got ready for the day!  Bret met the guys at DoubleTree where he was welcomed by the happiest groom.  Bobby was more than excited to marry his bride!!  Bret swears that Bobby’s smiles were nonstop the entire morning!!

Following the sweetest ceremony at Neu Chapel on University of Evansville’s campus, the entire bridal party and the new Mr. & Mrs. loaded up in the trolley to venture across town to the reception.  There was a magical party ready and waiting to celebrate!! 20 West was full of all things glittery and glamorous.  The head table was elegantly lined with touches of greenery, gold accents and the most beautiful blush tablecloth.

Watching Katie and Bobby dance the night away under the stars surrounded by family and friends was the best. Congratulations again, you two!! ♥️ Here’s to love, laughter, and happily ever after!!

Do you have a favorite date you’ve ever been on together?

“When Bobby proposed to me – at Bills restaurant in Owensboro on my birthday last year! (He knows I take my birthdays seriously lol) He had roses for me, a special request made by the chef on the menu just for me & took me upstairs to the art gallery where he proposed on a bottle of a my favorite drink – diet Coke. Then my parents surprised me with champagne and cake to celebrate AND we went out with friends as another surprise after that!” – Katie
