Casey + Tyler | Black Iris Estate Wedding in Carmel, Indiana


May 5, 2022

Well, it’s official!  Casey and Tyler are married!!  Casey and Tyler were one of the first couples to book with me after moving to Indianapolis, and little did I know back then how elegant their wedding day was going to be.  But oh my goodness, it was gorgeous!  Not only all of the little decor details and the classic venue that the Black Iris Estate is, but the love that Casey and Tyler share is like nothing else!  I can’t wait to share more about their wedding last weekend at Black Iris Estate!

Casey and Tyler have a love that will last a lifetime!

I’m sure I mentioned this a little bit back on their Holcomb Gardens engagement blog, but Casey and Tyler couldn’t be more perfect for each other.  They met through a recreational volleyball league and ever since!  Tyler treats Casey like gold, so much so that everywhere I looked on their wedding day there were more and more gifts from Tyler!  The gorgeous diamond band, just because, and the small pearl hoop earrings and bracelet that Casey wore were all tokens of love from her man.  Tyler takes her on all of the trips he wins through work, and they get to travel the world together several times a year!  Casey is the most gentle soul that you’ll meet, and not once through the wedding planning process did she ever seem stressed.  She was just so dang excited to finally get to marry her best friend!  I’m so honored to know Casey and Tyler, and to have been the one to capture their Black Iris Estate wedding!

Casey and Tyler’s Black Iris Estate wedding was as classy as it gets! 

If you haven’t seen Black Iris Estate wedding photos, then you’re in for a real treat.  The venue itself is so beautiful, from the grand winding staircase that greets you when you enter the front door, the chandeliers and coffered ceilings, and all of the perfect photo spots in the backyard.  Casey and Tyler were initially planning on getting married in the Willow Chapel, but due to the chance of rain during the time of their ceremony time, and that the greenery hadn’t fully grown in at the top of the outdoor space, they decided to move it indoors.  The staff at Black Iris Estate was incredibly efficient with flipping the space after the ceremony, while guests mingled in the front cocktail space area and patio!  

One of my favorite moments of their day was during the getting ready time.  The girls were so laid back and fun, and there wasn’t a sense of stress to be found!  They got their hair and makeup done at Society of Beauty, and then went to the venue to change into their dresses where we captured some jaw dropping bridal portraits of Casey!  The guys were also a lot of fun, being silly in their groomsmen portraits and doing a faux first look as well for fun!  There were a lot of happy tears shed during the first dances and speeches from the best man and maid of honor!  It was such a beautiful day inside and out, and everything this gorgeous couple deserved on their wedding day!

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton!

I’m so honored that you chose me to photograph this season in your lives and to be a part of your beautiful day! I can’t wait to see what adventures you go on next together and know that you’re having the best time in Italy on your honeymoon! Guys, I hope you love these wedding previews of your classy Black Iris Estate wedding!

Thank you to all of the amazing vendors that made their day so special!
