Emily and Evan’s wedding was hosted in Elkhart, Indiana otherwise referred to as Heart City. Emily and Evan were fun, easygoing and very in love with one another. It’s also easy to tell they are both very loved by their many friends and family who joined them on their day.
Our time started with Emily and her ladies at the Blown Away hair and makeup salon in South Bend, Indiana. I can never overstate the importance of getting ready time for our films and we were fortunate to have plenty of that thanks to Emily’s mother who was so helpful with the wedding plans. It’s true what they say you know mother knows best! There was a great vibe that morning as the ladies got prepped and pretty. Those moments are important as getting ready is when the wedding experience really starts to kick in for the bride. She can physically see her transformation beginning and the excitement becomes palpable. I’ve often filmed brides prepping with just a friend or two but it’s especially fun when a bride’s full squad is there to support her! In addition to being fun it helps ease tension by bringing normalcy to the days events..
Evan at the same time was getting ready and hanging with his groomsmen while waiting for the days events to begin. With the guys it’s always less about appearance and more about jokes and camaraderie. The camaraderie was awesome and seemed to keep Evan chill. He was relaxed and enjoying his last moments of singleness, giving gifts to his groomsmen, writing a letter to Emily and suiting up for the day. Some of his closest confidants were there for him as they had been through the years. As a bride and groom you want those you trust and are comfortable with there at this crucial point of the day.
Our best to the new Mr and Mrs! May you have many years of wedded success together.
