Seeing White – Le Diner En Blanc Indianapolis

30 years ago in the heart of Paris, François Pasquier invited fellow Frenchmen to wear all white to celebrate an elegant popup style picnic dinner in the city center.  Their all white attire was the only way guests would know who else was indeed invited to the exclusive fete who are only told the location of the celebration mere moments before the event’s start time.  Since then, in over 80 cities, the event has grown in size, scale and the host […]

Wedding Highlight – Shelby and Alex

    I had to wait for Shelby and Alex’s first year anniversary to truly put into words the iconic nature of this wedding, and this family. Shelby and Alex’s wedding day was … beyond. The color, well, it only seems fitting it was ultimately named the 2018 Pantone Color of the year. 😉 It took a year to plan, and a year to wrap my head around. The rich textures, the decadent fabrics, the luscious fragrance of the florals […]

Wedding Highlight – Julie and Michael

On this first day of spring, and National Proposal Day, it seems only fitting to bring you the wedding of Julie and Michael.  Their spring wedding was just the kick off to wedding season all of us need.  After a cold winter, it was the perfect way to allow springs flowers to bloom and have a garden wedding – both outside and in. The ceremony was held at Michael’s childhood home which allowed guests to mingle with some wonderful guests, […]

Wedding Highlight – Nikki & Weston

  There is something magical that happens when a bride sees the space she’s going to host her wedding in for the first time and she knows it’s the right place.  It’s like when she puts on her gown for the first time.  All is right with the world.  For Nikki and Weston, that moment occured they stepped foot onto Trader’s Point Creamery a little tabby cat ran up to the veterinarian bride.   Even on the cold December day […]

We Have A Sister!

  Mon Amie Events, Inc has had the honor of creating weddings for many years with families from the start of the wedding planning process through the wedding weekend.  We’ve gone to site inspections, dress fittings, chosen invitations, designed spectacular celebrations and tasted many flavors of cake over the years.  It’s been a delightful and delicious process, but we understand not every couple needs full wedding planning services.  It’s what we do, it’s where we excel.    We know though, […]

Wedding Highlight – Casey & Nick

The moment I met Casey I wanted to help her create the wedding of her dreams. I thought, if she doesn’t select me as her wedding planner, I will have “planner envy” for whomever she selects.  Then she said the magic words.  She said words every wedding professional loves to hear “I trust you.” Casey and Nick first learned of my work from “blog stalking” (she used that term – which I love) her photographer, Jessica Strickland’s website.  I knew […]

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!

Each quarter the sleek issue of WeddingDay Magazine premiers with much anticipation.  Inside its pages the beautiful magazine includes some of the state’s prettiest weddings, most couture designs and always a behind the scenes look at the cover styled shoot.  This winter, once again, the editors asked me to create and plan their cover shoot. Nothing makes me more excited than planning an event where I can control the elements – all of the planning and decor elements – including […]

Forty Under 40

I am entirely overwhelmed by outpouring and response from the Indianapolis Business Journal’s inclusion of me in their 2015 Class of Forty Under 40. For over 20 years the newspaper has put together a collection of our city’s business leaders and stars in a variety of fields from medicine and law, to politics and finance.  Typically there are a few sports figures or celebrities included as well.  Very rarely is someone from  the event industry included, and never before has […]
