Styled Shoot at the Barn in Zionsville

Yesterday was an absolute dream come true, in every literal sense of the phrase! My best friend Sarah (http://www.sarahcooperevents.com) is a wedding planner, so naturally for years we have been talking about doing a styled shoot that was "our dream wedding". We have very similar styles so we knew it would be easy to figure out a concept once we got started. Sarah owns a barn venue in town, The Barn in Zionsville, and our initial vision was a snow covered barn in the middle of winter, so we planned it for the end of January, figuring in Indiana there would definitely be snow on the ground. Well, it all melted just in time for our shoot, but it did snow for the tail end of the day, making for some really beautiful shots, so that makes up for the lack of snow on the ground :) You never know what you'll get in Indiana!

As soon as Sarah and I came up with everything we wanted in our "Wedding", Sarah quickly got to work getting all of the vendors on board and we created our "Dream Team"! Everyone did an above and beyond job of bringing our vision on paper come to life. Several times yesterday we stood back and just took it all in and hugged each other because it looked so good! I can not express how grateful I am to all of the people who helped yesterday! From moving furniture, to sweeping leaves and delivering hand warmers, we are so thankful for you! It went flawlessly!

Here is small peek into our big 2015 Styled shoot for Wedding inspiration everywhere!
