About the Hosts

The Sixpence Wedding + Event Space offers a premier hosting experience for clients in the Midwest and beyond. Owner Shelby Dempsey’s background in professional photography prompted her vision for a distinctive, elevated wedding venue in greater Indianapolis and beyond. 

The Wedding Studio is a multi-location bridal shop founded by owner Adrienne Love. With a vision of creating a bridal studio where everyone belongs, The Wedding Studio offers a one-of-a-kind experience for brides, striving to make every bride feel beautiful, supported, and loved on their wedding day.

Together, Shelby and Adrienne dreamt up an event that offered an elevated fashion experience for the Greater Indianapolis community. Hannah Ann, American television personality and model, joined Unveiled as co-host alongside Shelby and Adrienne. Being a future bride, lover of fashion, and well-known socialite, Hannah was the perfect host to join Unveiled.

“Here’s to Unveiled setting a new standard for fashion in our area!” – Diane Brooks.

Benefitting a Worthy Cause

What set this event apart was its unwavering commitment to social impact. A portion of the proceeds from the Unveiled Runway Show were directed towards Vow for Girls, a global movement dedicated to ending the international child marriage crisis and empowering girls to live lives they love. Through partnerships with brands, individuals, and vendors within the wedding industry, Vow for Girls aims to create a brighter future for girls around the world. The Unveiled Runway Show was more than just a showcase of luxury fashion; it was an opportunity to make a meaningful difference in the lives of girls everywhere. By supporting Vow for Girls, The Sixpence and The Wedding Studio contributed to a cause that resonated deeply with our values and vision for a better world.

A Night to Remember

The evening of Unveiled encompassed 3 dedicated runway show sessions, punctuated by roomy intermissions featuring decadent bites, signature sips, and unforgettable photo moments. The first runway show, sponsored by Fitzgerald Hospitality Group featured the newest collection by Colby John Bridal and an appearance by Colby John himself. Colby is a force in the bridal industry, bringing new and distinct designs to the runway. The second runway show, entitled Structural Minimalism and sponsored by Christopher Jones MD, featured gowns exhibiting a modern take on bridal classics by designers like Viktor&Rolf Mariage, Nicole + Felicia Couture, Hera Couture, and Signature by Justin Alexander. The third runway show, Bold Glamour, sponsored by Lockhart Cadillac, featured gowns created for the maximalists and lovers of drama, with top-to-bottom beadwork and extravagant detailing by designers from around the world including Martina Liana Luxe, Chosen by Kyha, and Berta Bridal

After the close of the Bold Glamour show, the screen flickered to hot pink and hosts Shelby and Hannah announced the surprise launch of MaddLove Bridal, a bridal look line by Adrienne Love and Haley Maddox. The MaddLove Bridal brand embodies innovation, passion, and an unwavering commitment to redefining bridal fashion. After the confetti and the last round of curated bites by Fitzgerald Hospitality, VIP guests were ushered into the High Noon VIP After Party. DJ Lockstar set the tone as the guests mingled with the sponsors, hosts, and designers while enjoying a midnight bite and beverages throughout the space. 

The Unveiled Bridal Runway Show brought New York Fashion Week to the Midwest, establishing an event that was designed with purpose and offered an elite, intimate showcase of bridal style and inspiration.
