Destination – Indiana
Couples looking for a great place to have a destination wedding, do not need to look further than right in our own state of Indiana. West Baden Resort is an excellent place for a beautiful destination wedding.
My Events by Design couple, Amanda and Michael, wanted to get away, but wanted something close enough that their favorite friends and family could attend. They hired me to help coordinate and plan the wedding.
The resort made it pretty seamless. Everyone arrived on Friday, and after the rehearsal, the dinner following was in the restaurant, Sinclair’s. This planner retired early to prepare for the day ahead.
The resort now has a staff florist, but at the time of their wedding the person they were using left for another job. With that being the only issue, Events by Design was readily able to bring in flowers from Indianapolis. We got the vision of the mother and the daughter and we were able to deliver the classic English Garden look they so desired. The floral team arrived with everything already prepared and ready to be placed, except the garden urns (they were concrete and part of the resort’s garden décor).
Besides a perfectly beautiful day for the garden ceremony, the resort itself offers so much. People can golf, bicycle, or even play a game of chance at the nearby casino. The hotel is rated in the Historic Hotels of America, Preferred Hotels and Resorts, and won the Readers Choice Award in 2014 in the Conde Nast publication. The sleeping rooms are luxurious, and the inside circle of rooms have balconies overlooking the magnificent atrium.
From the beautiful and intimate lobby reception room, to the gold chivari chairs, elegant linens and beautiful English Garden centerpieces, the Events by Design wedding itself was flawless, captured beautifully by Kevin Swan Photography.
