This Finley Creek summer wedding was a hit

Who said a wedding has to be stuffy?

Emily Richards and Aaron Hieneman held their wedding outdoors on a sunny summer’s day at Finley Creek Vineyards, and it was relaxed and picture-perfect!

By 3:30 in the afternoon, 150 guests had come to our picturesque, rolling Zionsville vineyard to witness the couples’ vows under a lovely billowing curtained canopy. The backdrop was of trees, farms and sky. You could hear birds chirping all around. The mood was peaceful and sweet.

A country-themed dinner followed the reception just a few steps away, in the Finely Creek Vineyard barn.

In keeping with the relaxed atmosphere, Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering provided farm-to-table hors d’oeuvres and sustainably produced southern barbecue. Everything was Indiana grown and raised, from the vegetable platter to the cheese and butter, right down to the Indiana raised chicken and beef:

  • Jacquie’s own Southern Barbecue buffet
  • Pulled Chicken – BBQ on Side Texas Style Beef Brisket
  • Macaroni and 3 Cheese with a Parmesan Garlic Crust
  • Baked Idaho Potato with Sour Cream, Bacon, Cheese and Butter

The reception progressed inside the rustic barn with music, dancing and drinks, lit up with elegant chandeliers. And outside, by the light of strung lights, crisscrossing the path leading to and from the barn.

The day was sweet, simple, delicious, and as you can no doubt tell from these photos, lots and lots of fun.

Cheers to the happy new couple!
