SEE OUR LATEST EDITION OF INDIANA BRIDE

Indiana Bride is published twice a year, in January and August. A flipbook of the latest issue appears above.

Is there any better way to start your life together than saying "I Do" under a clear blue sky and radiant sunshine? Holding your wedding ceremony and/or reception outdoors lends a romantic quality to your special day, no matter the season in which it's held. Of course, because Mother Nature doesn't always cooperate, an al fresco event brings a unique set of considerations. We talked to local wedding professionals for their advice on keeping cool during an outdoor event—and how to make sure your hair and makeup, food, cake, and flowers survive, too.

One of the hottest trends in weddings right now is a rustic venue. Central Indiana has plenty of them, but for our photo shoot, we headed to Lizton and The Barn at Kennedy Farm. It provided the perfect background for our gowns, accessories, and bouquets.
