A Match on Bumble
They met five years ago when they matched on Bumble while living in Los Angeles, where Ashley is from. A few years after modern dating brought them together, Steven moved to Indianapolis for his new job, and Ashley and their three sweet pups were right by his side!
Having both lived in California, Ashley and Steven really missed not being close to the water, especially being cooped up during the pandemic. So one weekend in October 2020, they took a day trip to Lake Michigan in northern Indiana! While walking the beach hand in hand with their three dogs running around, Steven proposed to Ashley and asked her if she would spend the rest of her life with him. Spoiler alert: she said yes! Ever since these two have been so excited to take their relationship to the next level!
Their Wedding at Guggman Haus Brewing in Indianapolis was the perfect fit for them!
Ashley and Steven frequently grab a beer Guggman Haus Brewing with their dogs on the weekend, so when they were looking for a wedding venue, it was an easy choice! Not only do they love the beer (Ashley especially loves their berry sour beer!), but it was close to where they wanted to have their ceremony at White River State Park. Ashley was worried about the weather, since their ceremony would be outdoors, but luckily their November wedding day was unusually warm and sunny!
After getting ready at the JW Marriot, we hopped around to different locations downtown for bride and groom portraits outside at The Eitelijorg Museum and the War Memorial Plaza! We met their bridal party and families on The Canal for portraits before walking a few minutes to their ceremony! One of my favorite parts of their wedding day, was capturing some photos in front of the trolley that they rented from 317 Limo. This not only added a fun variety to their bride and groom portraits, but helped transport their guests quickly between locations!
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Welc!
