Lenox of Love


The Lenox Event Venue, which was once a bank, is located in downtown Elkhart. It has been beautifully restored to its 1905 design with stunning marble details, an imported fireplace, gorgeous woodwork and a breathtaking glass skylight! The Lenox features a bridal suite, a billiards room, and an upstairs bar for your guests to enjoy.


AAYS Event Rentals designed the most beautiful tablescape! We loved how they incorporated different textures, colors and designs. The gold leaf charger was one of our favorites. Sticking with the fall design, they included real artichokes and pomegranates as table décor. A refreshing and unique idea that was executed masterfully.

Gown & Tuxedo

Our bride and groom, Leanne and Maxim Ivanov, looked absolutely exquisite and in love! Leanne’s gown, provided by Here Comes The Dress, was jaw-dropping. From the intricate details of the bodice of the gown to the elaborate lace train, she radiated with joy. Maxim looked rather dapper in his black tux and bow tie from Louie’s Tux Shop. What a classic and modern look.


Matzke Florist created the most exquisite floral arrangements. The floral display around the fireplace was an elegant focal point that tied everything together. We also loved how they made smaller centerpieces for the tablespaces so guests can engage in conversation easily. Matze Florist incorporated several varieties of floral throughout, such as dahlias, Amaranthus, astilbe,heliborus, peach feather celosia, cosmos, seeded eucalyptus Podocarpus, dusty miller and sage. 

Hair & Makeup

We loved how Wild Rose Hair Artistry styled Leanne’s hair for this shoot. The low loose bun created a whimsical look and highlighted the color of her hair.

Her makeup, done by Ashley Urban Artistry, looked ravishing. We loved the slight smokey eye and light pink lip on Leanne. It paired well with her updo.


With over 20 years of experience behind a camera, B Graves Photography knows how to take amazing photos. Her eye for detail and lighting is exactly what you would want from your wedding photographer.


Mini Snack Confections made the most delicious cake for this stylized shoot. The simple yet intricate design with the rose gold tipped layers was absolutely magnificent. They also provide other confections like mini cakes, cake pops, cupcakes, cheesecakes and so much more!

Did someone say macarons? Le Macaron French Pastries created a delicious array of different types of macarons. To say which one was the best was much harder than you would think! Each and every flavor made you want to grab another. We love how macarons are such a unique treat that incorporates your wedding colors so easily.
