Over the past year I have made some really incredible friends in the wedding industry and one of those amazing people is Maria! She is the creative force behind Maria McKenzie Photography LLC and I think she is just the coolest! Maria recently partnered up with Nerdy Fox Rentals and Whisk Bakery and Catering to create a beautiful concrete glam styled shoot at Indy’s newest wedding venue, Industry! Maria was kind enough to invite me to come along for the day and the super talented Erin of Erin Kay Photography joined us as well. It was an awesome day!
Industry is a modern oasis nestled just down the street from Lucas Oil Stadium. with warm brick walls, bistro lights and a fresh industrial feel. With pops of pretty green succulents, soft light blue touches and strong concrete – this styled shoot showcased the many ways this versatile venue can be transformed into your dream wedding location!
Cheyenne of Nerdy Fox Rentals and Designs did an incredible job bringing the concrete glam vision to life! (She even hauled all of the concrete blocks in her car… ALL of them! Skills!) Gold candelabras and ivory and baby blue candles complemented the glowing bistro lights that dot the ceiling of industry. Tiny green succulents added pops of color and a tall archway framed the space. It was elegant and modern all at once!
Chanda of Whisk Bakery and Catering was also on site helping Cheyenne create each beautiful table scape. Chanda is a cake wizard if you are not aware and created the most stunning modern cake. I loved the marbled effect she did on the bottom layer! The creativity didn’t stop there – Twin Sisters Designs sent over the most gorgeous invitation suite. I am totally in love with personalized stationary and can not recommend it enough for your wedding day!
One of the coolest parts of this shoot is that we able to feature two incredible dresses from Sophia’s Bridal Tux and Prom. One of which we highlighted on two different brides. For me, it really showed the versatility of the dress – which was just stunning! Our first couple, Kelly and Zach, are a real life couple who were fabulous to work with! I loved exploring the areas surrounding Industry with these two – and we made sure to show off all of the cool options couples would have for photos on their wedding day!
Next up was Morgan and Alex. These two are actual newlyweds which made this even more special. I loved working with them because Morgan made the most gorgeous and classic bride! And she has some of the prettiest blue eyes I have ever seen! Not to be outdone, Alex made a strikingly handsome groom! In between photos they’d sneak smiles at one another and you could tell that they are still in the honeymoon phase, which was pretty sweet to see!
Our final bride was the beautiful Ren! From the second she walked through the door she was all smiles! I was so impressed by her and all three of us photographers just had a blast photographing her! It was the perfect way to end our shoot!
