Meet Our Team 

Angel Bodenhamer

Angel Bodenhamer

Owner

 

One of the greatest joys in my life has been performing wedding ceremonies. I have personally married over 1000 couples since I started this amazing adventure. Whether it is Starbucks, or the Scottish Rite Cathedral, every wedding is touching, special, and unique.  I have been featured on Internet Radio, and well on local and national news programs.  In addition to managing this awesome team of wedding officiants, photographers and DJ's,  I own the Irvington Wedding Chapel on the east side of Indianapolis, and Indiana Proposal Planning!  

 

My signature officiating style can best be described by one of my favorite quotes "You know what? I don't do up tight and formal. I want you to be excited, but comfortable. At the end of your big day, you may not remember the words that I said, or who walked down the aisle before who, but you will ALWAYS remember the way I made you feel" I have been featured in several local news stories, and a national news story about our business, and I have even been seen in My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding. I also make appearances in a few local podcasts here in Indianapolis. 

 

I grew up in northern Putnam County. I feel that growing up in a rural area instilled wonderful values in me, as far as work ethic, and in being a good wife, and mother.  I attempted to complete college at Florida State University, but the temptations of college were just too strong. I finished up at Manatee Community College, and then moved back home to the state of Indiana. I spent several years in the staffing industry, and equally as long in the bar business. 

 

I am married to my best friend, Scott. We have three children, Emily, Hailey, and Avery. We live in Eagle Creek, though I have also lived on the South Side of Indianapolis previously. We are VERY social people, and never turn down an event where we can get dressed up and have a great time! We love to travel, and spending time with family and friends. We love having poker parties, cookouts, and family get togethers. We are always interested in fine dining, and late nights out! I LOVE cooking, and never miss a time to offer a home cooked meal to anyone! I adore gardening and being outdoors. I consider myself a professional bargain shopper in regards to fashion...especially high heels. Most importantly, I appreciate it when the couples I marry open their social media up so I can continue to watch them grow as couples and families.

Azia joined IWD later this wedding season and fell even more in love with the many aspects of the wedding industry. While she's mainly a photographer, she's also an officiant and day of coordinator.

Sara Dodson

I grew up on the west side of Indianapolis and I am currently a resource management analyst for a mail order pharmaceutical company. 

 

In  September 2016, I married my best friend, partner in crime and true soulmate, Jeff. I have an 8 year old step-daughter Emilee who loves to keep me on my toes. Our free time is generally spent on our 4.5 acre property, where we love to spend time with friends and family.

 

I was introduced to this industry by chance. I was looking for an officiant for our wedding, and was fortunate to find Angel and Indiana Wedding Design, LLC. Angel was able to assist in making sure our day was perfect. I couldn't be happier being a part of this amazing team!!

Wedding Officiant

Senior Photographer

Growing up in an Italian home means you are exposed to Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, I Love Lucy reruns, and large Sunday spaghetti meals with the whole family.  I believe that is where my deep love of retro and vintage style comes from.  I can go from listening to rock, to blasting Tony Bennett in the blink of an eye.  Most days you can find me with my camera, cuddling with my adorable puppies, or working on a vehicle in some way.  While my style is distinctly retro, I am a deep-down tomboy and will never hesitate to face any challenge put towards me. 

 

I have a sincere passion for love, and a huge desire to share in the people I meets love stories.  There is nothing more beautiful to me than that moment that 2 become 1. 

Brianna Lillard

I was born in Winona, Mississippi and raised in Indiana. I always knew I had a talent for planning but I grew up wanting to be a nurse like my grandmother. I wanted to make a difference in people's lives. As I got older, I planned and decorated family events and realized that nursing was not for me. So I decided to work toward an event management degree with a certification in event and wedding planning. I stumbled upon this amazing business when I had to complete a job shadow. The day I job shadowed for Indiana Wedding Design I knew for sure that this is what I wanted to do and I'm glad that I've gotten this far! It's a great feeling to be able make a difference in someone's life, even if it's not saving lives like I originally planned!

Lori Bradley

Senior Officiant 

Busy woman with own business, part time nursing, civic volunteer work, but always ready to work with Indiana Wedding Design celebrating your wedding day! I love officiating large weddings but think those small intimate services are especially special as well. You can count on my working with you to make those vows perfect and memorable for your guests!

Temple Rice

Yes, Temple is my given first name. I am the mother of a beautiful son named Robb and a dog named Ava. They are my heart and soul.

 

I am currently the Regional Manager of Business Development for City BBQ. I was raised in Indiana and immediately after graduation I spent 8 years in the US Navy traveling overseas and in Desert Storm. I was visited many countries and experienced very diverse cultures. I am proud to have served our country. I have quite the eclectic resume and all of my opportunities allowed me to be a servant leader. I feel best when helping people and making them happy.

 

I joined the team at IWD to be a part of something great. I believe that everyone deserves to marry the love of their life and have their special day. I am very excited to be a part of that.

Cait Potter

I am an Indianapolis photographer specializing in wedding and couples photography. I LOVE this city. I moved to Indy on a whim nearly 4 years ago for a job, but I stayed because I found home.

 

I started my business because I truly believe that everyone deserves to have their special moments captured beautifully, regardless of their budget. I love partnering with companies that strongly exhibit these values and I am proud to have such a strong partnership with IWD. No matter the size of your wedding, you can count on me to be there, tears in my eyes behind the lens, excited for the future alongside you.

 

When I'm not capturing life's most precious moments, I'm saving the world at a local nonprofit, playing with my 2 dogs, or getting in over my head on home remodeling.
