It seems like you are always hearing those stories about ‘marrying your high school sweetheart’ and the wedding of Mary Kate & Lee is just that. These high school sweethearts decided to get married at the one place that meant so much to them as this place was also a huge part of their relationship. The commons of IU created the perfect setting for their wedding. Not only did it hold a sentimental meaning to the couple as they spent 4 years of their relationship on the campus, but the commons also had gorgeous windows that were able to showcase the beautiful fall colors that the couple fell in love with, confirming the reason they decided on a fall wedding. I absolutely love the different style bridesmaid dresses and cranberry accents every way you turn. This color is a stunning choice for a fall wedding; it is one to notice, and one that won’t soon be forgotten.
From the Bride:
IU’s campus in the fall is such a beautiful place, so after spending 4 years on the campus we both came to love the months of September and October. We both knew right away we would want a fall wedding. The Commons was an obvious choice then as the large windows really showcase the warm colors of the season.
Our favorite moment from the day was right after the ceremony. We went straight from the sanctuary to the bridal suite downstairs to wait for the bridal party for pictures. It gave us a minute alone to really appreciate what just happened. Then, all of our bridesmaids and groomsmen came running down the stairs hugging and congratulating us.
The funniest moment was definitely seeing Mary Kate’s dad break it down to Gangnam Style on the dance floor.
Our advice to other couples would be to relinquish some control to those that offer to help. We never felt stressed about the planning, because we were happy to let others assist. It is an exciting day for a lot of people, not just the couple, and having a little input from friends and family helps them to feel included and eases the stress.
