& Amber Gerald Amber Marie Bananafsh, Tattoo Artist and owner of Bananafsh Tattoo Parlour in New Albany, Ind. and Gerald David Kelly, Jewelry artisan for Designer Jewelry By Renaldo, were united in a handfasting ceremony at six o'clock in the evening of October 25th 2014, at Endris Lodge in Clarksville, IN. The bride chose Endris Lodge because of its privacy and its densely wooded surroundings. The ceremony was performed by Lee Ann Cooper, host and entertainer for the Va Va Vixens burlesque group. the Bride is the daughter of Kimberly Skinner and the late David S. Ellnor. The groom is the son of Rick Kelly and the late J . The bride chose a gown from David's Bridal that made her feel like a princess, featuring a corseted top with pearl and crystal appliqués, lace capped sleeves, and a train longer than she is tall. Attending as maid of honor was Cassandra Waddell, the bride's close friend. Bridesmaids included Cheryl Anderson, Endris Lodge, Clarksville, Ind. Amy Arvin Photography & Chelsea Flint Photography Nikki Pulfer, Amelia Wise, Victoria Kurtz and Donna Hittner. Bridesmaids wore black knee- length dresses with combats boots and carried bouquets that the bride made of fall fowers and embellishments. Matt Knoy, college roommate of the groom, served as best man. Groomsmen included Johnny Goebel, John Voyles, Jon Cox, Stephen Ingram and Stuart Rocho. Groomsmen were attired in black slacks, white dress shirts and suspenders. The memorable day was captured by photographers Amy Morrison and Chelsea Flint, both clients and friends of the bride. The wedding party took a short hike on the trails behind Endris Lodge to capture photos among nature, posing by trees and ravines and even shooting an impromptu comedic scene of running through a feld, into which Amy later edited a Tyrannosaurus rex. The bride and groom incorporated their southern upbringing and infuences as well as their love for nature throughout the wedding. There was most defnitely a Halloween presence as well. Guests were given mason jars with the bride and groom's names on the front, flled with pretzels and candy corn as party favors. Guests were also served craft beer from New Albanian Brewing Company's antique beer truck, Rosa, on the beautiful fall day. Guests were also treated to southern fare prepared by the maid of honor and the bride's uncle, Rob Ellnor — whole roasted pig, baked mac and cheese, and beans. On that evening, the guests partook of cupcakes instead of a traditional wedding cake. They drank and danced into the October night with their closest and dearest, and continued their merriment at Horseshoe Casino later that evening. The bride and groom stayed there for three days of pampering and relaxation. Sample Wedding Album
