Blanton House Brunch Wedding

Looking at this wedding from T&C Photographie, you’d absolutely never guess that newlyweds Kindra and Taylor lost their venue a mere three weeks before their wedding. Luckily they stumbled across the incredible Indiana venue The Blanton House, which would soon house one of the prettiest weddings we’ve seen to date! We love the idea of lowering reception costs by hosting a post-ceremony brunch instead of dinner — not to mention more time for daylight pictures!

From the bride, Kindra: Three weeks before wedding our planner (Linda Cook) received some news; our venue was double booked! Calmly we called venues around the city. That day we went to visit the only venue still open. It was out in the country, I am not a country girl and I did not want a country wedding. I was certain it was going to feel like a step down from our current venue. I was so wrong. The Blanton House was perfect! Early 1900’s home with beautiful grounds and the most elegant white tent for the reception already in place!

Next we needed a caterer and rental company. Matt Mills, our caterer, fell into our lap with a brilliant brunch menu. We heard about the most amazing rental company Violet Vintage. They blew my mind! The warehouse was filled with unique lovely vintage items ranging from chairs to plates to old doors. We almost rented the entire place!

A week before the wedding we went to the floral warehouse. We hit another speed bump. We were told this crazy drought we were experiencing was going to inhibit any chance of getting the flowers I had always dreamed of having!

The week of the wedding my husband and I went to get our marriage license. When we got to the city we saw a huge weekly farmers market happening. I LOVE farmers markets so we had ourselves a look. We ran into a very cute woman selling beautiful garden flowers and it clicked. She was going to be the fix to my flower problem. The day before the wedding our day of planner Drew drove a total of 2 hours to get fresh back yard flowers from our new friend. Needless to say, they were stunning.

Our wedding day was a beautiful 80 degree day; which would make it the coldest day of the entire summer! My husband looked handsome and my maid of honor was beautiful! The ceremony site was stunning and the brunch was delicious! It was a perfect way to start a life with my best friend.

  1. It sounds like this couple is cool, calm, and collected in the face of adversity! It’s a good thing, because it looks like they were able to create a beautiful day despite all the mishaps. I have seen more wedding brunches lately, and I LOVE the idea! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I have worked with both Matt Mills Catering and Violet Vintage and you couldn’t have a better team for a lovely event! The wheeled cart is one of my favorite pieces from Violet Vintage and it’s amazing how a few special items can transform a space into a unique celebration. Congratulations!!
