Christina and Tyler’s ‘Boho Industrial’ Travel Themed Wedding by Adam and Becca

Happy Wednesday everyone and well done at making it to the middle of the week. I have another double blog post day for you today, January sure is shaping up to be a busy month here on the blog! Today it’s the turn of Christina and Tyler who were married last year in a ‘Boho Industrial‘ wedding in Indianapolis. They both wanted something urban, yet soft and this they found in their venue INDUSTRY. With high ceilings and exposed brick, the space was light and airy and made to feel welcoming with the soft tones of the decoration and warm colours in the flowers. I just love the whole look of this wedding, I do love an industrial wedding, especially when it looks like this. Big thanks to Adam and Becca for the beautiful photos.

Our wedding day was so much fun and felt like a big party surrounded by all of our closest family and friends. Our wedding was so “us” and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.

Christina and Tyler were married on 16th October 2021 at INDUSTRY in Indianapolis. ‘We are both from Michigan and both of our families still live there. However, we have lived in Indianapolis for 5 years and wanted to create a more intimate, mini-destination wedding for our guests. We were excited to show off our new city and give our loved ones an opportunity to see why we love Indy so much! As for the venue, I really wanted an industrial, boho vibe that didn’t require too much decorating. I was instantly drawn to the brick walls, exposed beams, and market lights at Industry. The location in the heart of downtown helped with our first goal of having our loved ones right in our new home. We ended up around 120 guests.Oh boy, the planning took too long. We were engaged for 2 years before our wedding date, but planning took a back-seat as we decided to buy a house first. Our venue was booked a little over a year in advance, photographers were next, and after that I really didn’t start my serious planning until probably closer to 6 months out!’

How they met 
On the cross country team in college at Saginaw Valley State University. We first met at cross camp when Christina was a freshman and Tyler was a senior. After the first few weeks of school, Tyler eventually slid into Christina’s Twitter DM’s to get her number.

Tell me about the proposal
Tyler proposed at sunset on the coast in Cap d’Ail, Monaco while we were on vacation. We were walking along a tiny coastal path on the way to dinner and he stopped me about halfway there and got down on one knee. We then had dinner up on a cliff-side at an amazing local Mediterranean cafe.

How did you allocate your budget?
Early on, we each picked what was most important to us and used those as our “big budget” allowances. Our big three ended up being the venue, photography, and food. For flowers, I saved money by choosing the workshop option offered by The Flower Boys. This ended up being one of my favorite things I did– the florist ordered all the flowers, then myself, my parents, Tyler’s mom, and my bridesmaid Sophie built all the arrangements and bouquets under their guidance. I also tried to save on the rest of my decor, doing a lot of DIY and supplementing with pieces I either already had or could find a use for in my home after the wedding.

How did you choose your photographer?
It was one of the first things we decided on. I researched people through the knot, WeddingWire, and
recommendations on Facebook…got it narrowed down and knew I wanted Adam and Becca after our phone call. I wanted a photographer whose images were candid and would capture our day as it actually happened. Becca’s editing style enhances her photos without making them look or feel overly edited, adding to the realness she creates in her photos. On top of that- I could tell just from our first phone call that she was so friendly, laid back, and fun!

Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We went to Hawaii (Kauai and Mauii) for two weeks and it was amazing! We are big outdoorsy people and wanted to go somewhere we could adventure and relax. Kauai was unreal– I’d never seen landscapes like that and the views were unbelievable. We hiked cliffs, waterfalls, canyons, and beaches, ate super fresh delicious food, and drank maybe a few too many Mai tais.

Personal touches
Of course– the personal touches were what was most important to me. We love craft beer and going to breweries, so we did a beer pouring for our unity ceremony. I picked a beer from Michigan where we met in college and Tyler picked a beer from Indiana where we currently live. We had my brother and Tyler’s sister help with the ceremony by doing the readings and helping pour our beers. We poured them together and each took a sip in unity of our marriage!
Our dog couldn’t be there for the reception, so we had a mini statue of him on our cake- it was one of my favorite things!
We love to travel and have been to 10 countries together. To incorporate this into our wedding, we used an old atlas as our guest book and had people sign their favorite places or somewhere they think we should go and our table numbers were pictures of us from our travels.

Special moments
The first look with my dad. Having Sebastian there while getting ready and taking photos. Honestly our entire ceremony was so fun and I was surprised that it was a highlight of our day. Tyler is really into music and we picked music that was unique and meant something to us. We had a friend officiate,
did our beer ceremony, told lots of stories, and wrote our own vows.

Advice for other couples
Make your day whatever YOU want it to be! It is your day that should be about you and your partner above all else. I’d also say to decide early on what is most important to you both and hold each other accountable to make sure you don’t lose sight of that

Biggest surprise 
This is probably cliche, but I was surprised at how fast the day flew by. I also was very surprised at how
relaxed I felt– I guess that’s what happens when you have complete trust in your vendors!
