The Marriott looked absolutely amazing and everything was magical for you two.  The reception was a blast and you two have super fun friends and family.  The wedding day, the story behind your love is absolutely wonderful.  I loved the happiness you two find in each other and I loved seeing everything come together.  All of us around you are all so happy for you and know that you will enjoy married life.  Now that you have gotten to see a few of your highlights at our Wedding Photography Preview Party and a few of your photos, I am super excited to share some wedding photography highlights!!  There are so many photos to chose from, so here are just a few favorites of Jen and Troy's beautiful wedding day and more about their love story . . . 
Jen and Troy met on eHarmony!  Jen and Troy shared, “We emailed back and forth for a while, and then decided to meet.  We went out every weekend the first few months, and the rest is history!”  When it came to knowing and realizing that they had found “the one," Troy said it was on New Year’s Eve 12/31/11.  Jen and Troy were having an in depth discussion about their future, and that is when he realized that he couldn’t picture his future without her.  Troy began to think about asking her to marry him at that point, and he proposed 6 months later.  Jen said that she knew very quickly, about 6 months in, that she wanted to marry Troy.  She shared, “He treated me with such genuine care, and I was blown away everyday with the way he treated me, and how romantic he is.  I have lived every girls’ fairy tale for the last 2 years.  He is so dreamy.”   I love hearing this!  One of my conversations early on in my relationship with Jen stands out to me, because she shared and gushed about how amazing Troy was to her and the thought that always went into making one another happy.  I see how much they care for one another and how much love they share.  So getting to see this amazing couple getting married means so much.  I am absolutely thrilled for them. 
On their “date nights,” they love to do many different types of activities.  They are always out on the town!  But they also both love a quiet evening-in watching a movie with a fire in the fireplace.  Troy loves James Bond movies, and Jen loves any romantic comedy!
For the wedding proposal, Troy was over the top!  He surprised Jen at work with a Marriott Grand Welcome.  The entire office was in on it and definitely an amazing surprise.  It is even on You Tube!  Please click on the link below to see the proposal.  What fun!!  Great job, Troy!  

Shortly after the engagement, they started planning the wedding.  It was all about “location, location, location!”  They had a downtown wedding, which is so perfect for Jen and Troy.  I associate downtown with them, so I loved that they are downtown Indy for their big day.  Roberts Park United Methodist Church for the ceremony, and then the Reception was at the Indianapolis Marriott.  Because Jen works at the Marriott, it made her choice very easy and everyone at the Marriott took such great care of them leading up to and on the big day.  They said, “It has been a wonderful experience!”  One of their favorite parts of the wedding planning was working with some of their favorite vendors.  All of their vendor friends helped make so many wonderful memories.  
What is this amazing couple looking forward to most on the wedding day?  For Troy, was super excited to getting to see Jen for the first time.  For Jen, she “absolutely couldn't wait to marry this man and become Mrs. Troy Barenie.”
