Photos from 'Good Bones' Star Mina Starsiak's Dream Wedding

When it comes to throwing a wedding, Mina (now Mina Starsiak Hawk, officially) does it with style and aplomb. We brought you a sneak peek and a recent followup via our HGTV blog. Now Mina is sharing more photos and video from the visually stunning event. Indianapolis photographer Mallory Talty of Stereoscope Photography was there to record the whole thing in a photo essay that blends atmospheric portraits, impromptu snapshots and skillful documentary style. Presented here with limited captioning. These pictures (and that dress!) speak for themselves.

Mina and Stephen

...were wed on Saturday, the eleventh of June, two thousand and sixteen. The ceremony and reception were held at the historic 1899 building in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Practice Makes Perfect. The bride and groom show off some of the dance floor skills they mastered during the 10+ lessons taken at Starlite Ballroom in preparation for their wedding. The couple was determined that their first dance at the reception be flawless. This photo, by the way, was one of Mina's favorites from the wedding according to her instagram post.

Dedication to Craft. Mina may have swapped her hand tools for a handful of pink peonies and hydrangeas for the day, but a photo-op on a work ladder and in beautiful wedding dress was simply too tempting to pass up.

Officiating the Ceremony. As some dedicated HGTV fans already know, Mina's mom Karen is something of a renaissance woman. Not only does she renovate houses and co-host a TV series, she's also an attorney and a licensed minister. With credentials like that, the choice of who would perform the wedding was an easy one. Plus, as Mina noted, mom's fee — at "free-ninety-nine" — was quite reasonable.

Who Needs Cake

...when you can have donuts?!

In lieu of a traditional wedding cake, Mina and Stephen opted for 400 donuts from Long's Bakery — an Indianapolis institution that was recently named to a list of the 33 best donut shops in the US.
