This Lafayette, Indiana Winter wedding at Fowler House Mansion is the perfect venue for all year. It was especially perfect for Clint and Kristy and their intimate wedding at Fowler House Mansion.
It has housed many families over the last century and a half and is now the perfect venue in Lafayette, Indiana for Clint and Kristy’s winter wedding!
Our modern day technology has allowed us many miraculous and wonderful feats throughout the years. We’ve been able to enhance our lives with technology and enrich one another as well. One of the most wonderful things that has come from it is the connection it has brought about–and no, I’m not talking about social media. I’m talking about dating apps. Apps that allow two users to find one another based on their likes and interests. Bumble, a dating app, allowed Kristy to reach out to Clint safely and securely online years ago. Through their mutual interests of love of amazing music, animals, and their kind hearts of giving–these two found love. What I love about love stories are that while there is a common thread between all of them–the love and desire of their partner, they’re also unique and as beautiful as four-leaf clovers. All luck aside, these two were meant to be with one another and it shows in the way that they speak to one another, look at one another, and how they easily communicate their needs and feels to each other.
Kristy and Clint were married at the historic Fowler House Mansion in Lafayette, Indiana on March 14, 2020. March in Indiana has just about every season there is available to a midwesterner. You’ll sometimes find snowy winter-like days, brisk and windy days like the fall, wet and flowery days like Spring, and even, toward the end of the month–some warm days like summer. It’s really the most versatile of our months and instead of going toward winter–it brings us right out of it and into a beautiful Midwestern Spring. Kristy and Clint’s wedding day was a typical March day with some Spring like rain, a beautiful slow snowfall, and filled with all the luck and love and excitement of the seasons of life to come!
The Fowler House Mansion built in 1852, is owned by a non-profit organization called, aptly, The 1852 Foundation–which focuses on ensuring that the historical home remains as a functional and beautiful landmark and now wedding and event venue. Choosing The Fowler House Mansion was an easy decision for these two as it fit the intimate and grand feel that these two wanted to share with their guests.
With an onsite bridal and groom’s chambers, these two lived their wedding day fantasy with close family members and dear friends by their sides. In place of adult groomsmen and bridesmaids, the couple elected to have their nieces and nephews stand with them by their sides. Gorgeous floral arrangements filled the entire mansion with bold colors of yellows and purples.
Kristy and Clint decided that they’d opt for a more comfortable shoe choice and both purchased the same color low top converse shoe to wear. While this couple chose to wait until their wedding to see one another, they did have an intimate gift exchange with one another around a corner. Kristy gifted Clint a scrapbook of adventures they had taken together with room for new ones in the future. Clint made for Kristy a beautiful and cheesy (their words) composite of their wedding bands being entwined together with the lyrics from Journey’s famous song, “Faithfully” — the tune of their first dance. Along with all of the wedding festivities, another special day was being celebrated across the globe as well. It was national Pi day. To honor and celebrate this beloved tradition, they ordered dessert pies for all of the guests as both dessert and wedding favors from my favorite local dessert stop in Lafayette, Sweet Revolution Bake Shop.
Clint and Kristy were blessed with not only one another’s undying commitment and love for one another that day but also one of the smoothest and easiest going wedding days I’ve ever witnessed. This gave way to, essentially, a stress free and beautiful wedding. These two even took the time to venture outside two times during their reception for an impromptu snowball fight and to play with some smoke bombs. Since the outbreak of the Coronavirus this past December, we’ve all been a little leery of large gatherings. Thankfully, Clint and Kristy thought of everything including providing colorful hand sanitizer at each table to match and mesh with their beautiful floral centerpieces.
The rest of the evening flowed smoothly and through their first dance with one another to their wedding party “Cha Cha Slide” dance–it was a lovely March wedding. I wish this couple all of the happiness and love that marriage and being soulmates can bring!
Thank you, Clint and Kristy! You two are so wonderful! Give Edgar and Peanut all my love and stay healthy!
