Yesterday started off nice and early with a breakfast date with Brian’s mom. We headed to a little breakfast restaurant called Le Peep. It is a simply little restaurant with a happy team of waiters giving the restaurant a very welcoming feel.
To start my day, I ordered a yogurt and fruit parfait with some egg whites on the side for extra protein. I had to teach a spinning class afterwards and knew that I needed the extra energy boost.
After breakfast, spinning, and doing a little shopping, it was time to get ready for the big event of the evening…Tori and Kegan’s wedding!
The weather couldn’t have been more perfect. It was beautifully sunny, and very warm so no jacket was needed for me!
The ceremony was held at the state house. I had never been to the state house, but I knew that they had a lot of rules in regard to decorating for events, so I wasn’t quite sure what Tori and Kegan were going to do for their ceremony.
Everything was absolutely beautiful. There were rose petals lining the aisle, and the beauty of the building was enough decoration on it’s own.
Because the state house was downtown and the reception was downtown most people walked from one location to the next. We made a sign so that everyone attending the wedding could follow us as we led the way through downtown Indy to get to the reception. We called it the Boover Bash (because of Tori’s request). Boover combines Bertsch (Tori’s last name) and Hoover (Kegan’s last name). How clever!
Before heading out to the reception, we waited outside the state house to send Tori and Kegan away in a horse drawn carriage. So romantic.
Once we arrived at the reception venue, it was time for cocktail hour to begin. The tables were not available for seating yet, but of course I had to take a peak at the decorations 😉
Little appetizers were served, and I think the bruschetta was the best. The toast was very crisp, and the bruschetta was cold. The flavors and textures blended together perfectly.
Tori and Kegan provided sunglasses with their names and wedding date as party favors.
And in the women’s bathroom there were flip-flops, so all of the girls could kick off their heels and hit the dance floor. You better believe I took advantage of that!
Instead of having a full cake, they had a ton of little cupcakes from a local cupcake bakery called the Flying Cupcake. There is a Flying Cupcake located right by Butler, so we were all familiar with their decadent, famous Red Velvet Elvis cupcake.
Dinner was served and was absolutely delicious. We began the meal with a salad.
But the main course is where the real action happened. I opted for the vegetarian meal and was completely happy with that decision. The eggplant parmesan was delicious and filling.
After dinner it was time to cut the cake, Tori and Kegan were kind and didn’t make a big cake mess on the other’s face.
Since we were seated right by the cupcakes, our entire table had been eyeing them since we walked in the door and couldn’t wait to have our share.
I snagged a mini red velvet and a regular “What’s Up Doc” (carrot cake) to share with Brian. Delish!
Tori and Kegan had their first dance to “Crazy Love” sung by their amazing wedding band.
And the rest of the night was spent dancing on the dance floor. The music was a live band the entire night called My Yellow Rickshaw and they were so great! They all had great personalities and speaking voices as well as a great repertoire of popular current music. It was such a fun night. The head of the band played the fiddle and ended the night with a personal favorite of mine….The Devil Went Down to Georgia.
It was perfect in every single way. I am so happy for Tori and Kegan to finally start their lives together as husband and wife!
