Hi there, we are Simply Sacred!  We're a small company that believes in the beauty of marriage, the respect that love brings, and of course, the joy of weddings!​

We officially formed in 2018 after working in different areas of event management to create the first planning company dedicated solely to Catholic wedding celebrations. We prayerfully made this decision in order to help couples navigate the (sometimes complex) details of Catholic ceremonies, and assist with fitting their unique wedding vision in those rubrics. At the end of 2021, we changed our name to reflect our unique point of view- with a nod to the parish where we first embarked on our wedding journey, Sacred Heart.

We have a patron saint (St. Zelie Martin) a patron designer (Kate Spade) and a fondness of overly sweet coffee. We love the process of getting to know our couples, and contributing our experience and organization to make their wedding as perfect as possible, no matter how many details are involved!

Our Story
est. 2018

Hi, I'm Mary! I just love watching all the little details come together to make a cohesive experience after months of hard work! Professionally, I spent several years in restaurant management, where I learned the never ending joys and woes of catering and customer service, before jumping at the chance to transition into weddings with Joy in early 2018. I met my own husband in 2014 and we were married on a cold and wet day in May of 2016. We've since been blessed with two energetic little girls.  My passion for weddings stems from the beautiful example of marriage that I was fortunate enough to witness in my own parents and I strive to give that gift to my own children.

Hi, I'm Joy! When it comes to events, I believe good food, good music, and good company are the heart of both small gatherings and grand celebrations. After years of working with vendors for local educational conferences, I accepted an on-site wedding coordinator position for my parish; one of the beautiful, historical churches in downtown Indianapolis. ​After just one wedding, I was hooked! 3 years and 70 amazing ceremonies later, I left that position, and with Mary, officially began our planning company in 2018. My husband and I are the parents of three young adult sons.
