Morris Park Country Club wedding. South Bend, IN wedding location for ceremony and reception. Beautiful outdoor event!

Morris park country club wedding || Sarah & Trevor

Sarah and Trevor’s Morris Park Country Club wedding was the latest of the three lovely Tyler girl weddings I have been blessed to film! From eldest to youngest first was Leigh and Nate, followed by Anne and Matthew and now finally Sarah and Trevor. We’re very grateful to the Tylers for including us in their weddings over the years. It was a bit bittersweet as this wedding marked the last from their family. But so sweet as we had an amazing time filming this absolutely incredible wedding day for a truly incredible couple!

The day began as it had before at the Tyler family home doing hair and makeup in the basement. The hustle, bustle and energy. I was happy to work with our friend Stephanie Sullivan and her associate Danielle Rzepka Beauty Studio. If you’re looking for a wedding day makeup artist check her out, she’s getting her start and is very good. But don’t take my word for it just look at the results in these ladies and the bride!!

Sarah got made up, dressed up and bam! Did she sparkle in her bride look or what?! After all the sparkle, details and champagne toasts were filmed we had to hustle it over to Morris Park to catch up with Trevor and his groomsmen. They were looking sharp and all suited up themselves for the big event. Trevor did some awesome getting ready scenes with us and quickly began to settle in and collect himself for the ceremony first look and vows.

I will say it was a bit of a scorcher but it was beautiful on the grounds of Morris Park CC and so worth being outdoors. The ceremony out on the tee box was picturesque. Trevor’s father officiated for them and did a great job. After ceremony events we moved to the cocktail hour candid session around Morris Park golf course and then indoors to the newly renovated ballroom for the remaining festivities. There we listened to amazing speeches by the best man, matron’s of honor (Sarah’s sisters) and Sarah’s father Scott. Scott has always delivered show stopping speeches for his daughters and didn’t fail to throw down again this time. I mean just watch the film to see. After all the formal events Sarah and Trevor rounded out the day dancing the night away to music and entertainment by the fabulous David Rothstein Music.

Our best to Sarah and Trevor!

Union Station wedding day for Mallory and Carson! Big city wedding in Indianapolis, Indiana. Wedding videography at Crown Plaza downtown.

Union Station Wedding | Mallory + Carson’s Big Beautiful Wedding Day

Mallory and Carson’s Union Station wedding day was epic! The Union Station at Crown Plaza has long been one of our favorite places to film. It’s just one of those places that has a special energy and is amazing for events.

As we know 2020 was a year for small gatherings and therefore more modest wedding events. Mallory and Carson’s wedding was kinda a triumph over wedding limitations if there was one. Big venue in the city, hundreds of guests and a big beautiful wedding party! It felt great not to have any limitations in celebrating with them. Not to mention the weather was spot on. We took full advantage of that great weather being outdoors for Mallory and Carson’s first look in the ally next to Omni Hotel plus we visited the war memorial plus the circle for photos/video. It was your perfect Indianapolis wedding day for the perfect couple. Cheers to you Mallory & Carson and thanks for inviting us to be part of your beautiful wedding day!!

Katie and Tony hosted their wedding at St. Alphonsus Church in Zionsville and the reception at The Bluffs at Conner Prairie

The Bluffs at Conner Prairie wedding | Katie & tony

Katie and Tony had a beautiful August wedding surrounded by friends and family at The Bluffs at Conner Prairie.

This couple had a blast and were awesome to film with! I wasn’t personally available for their date but fortunately it worked to have our team film for them and I was able to do the editing. Katie later gave a special shout out to our videographer Zarah for being the hype girl she didn’t know she needed. Although a little hype is fun for pictures and video I don’t think they really needed it much. Just being themselves and letting their personalities shine through was more than enough. Their genuineness and affection for one another and their guests came through beautifully.

Katie and Tony hosted their wedding at St. Alphonsus Church in Zionsville and the reception at The Bluffs at Conner Prairie. If you haven’t heard of it the Bluffs is a newish venue. It’s the outcome of a partnership between Ritz Charles and Conner Prairie to renovate the historic Eli Lilly Chinese house plus build a new venue in the woods – the Bluffs making both available for special events. It’s interesting that they didn’t create a separate social media pages for the venues. I think they would benefit from doing that because they’re really cool spots. If you’re looking for more pictures of the space social media for the Bluffs is currently under @ritzcharles for Instagram & Facebook.

All the sparkle and glitter at Palais Royale Wedding for Casey + Michelle.

All the rhinestones, glitter, and pink! | Michelle & Casey’s palais Royale Wedding

Michelle’s father joked in his speech that soon all the rhinestones, glitter and pink would be arriving at their house by the truckload! That got a good laugh but Michelle really did get the wedding of her dreams. She had amazing details, sparkle and her favorite colors. Plus, she had the perfect venue in the Palais Royale to showcase all the glitter and warm, pink tones. The room sparkles without much help (exhibit A, giant ceiling chandeliers) but add in special lighting, floral, glass and table coverings and it really shines. It’s great when a couple can include all their favorites into the wedding day and I think Michelle & Casey did a great job with taste and excellence!

getting prepped

Michelle and her ladies were bustling when we arrived at Aloft Hotel that morning. They were eating Jimmy Johns (a wedding day favorite) and drinking champagne drinks with pretty straws and matching attire. We enjoyed shooting alongside Jessica Strickland to capture all the details and makeup. Casey and his guys were at the family home hanging in the basement and doing their thing. As a videographer, I find lighting in a basement is always so low and flat so I had Casey move outdoors to open his gifts from Michelle and read a letter she wrote him. Michelle also read a letter from Casey and opened gifts which was fun. It’s one of the hidden treats of ceremony prep and gives me insight into what the couple loves.

wedding bells

The wedding ceremony was at Grace United Methodist Church in South Bend. Everything was going right to schedule until we got stuck there waiting out a tornado warning after the service. No worries, Michelle and Casey and their party took it in stride! The guys even played a little basketball in the church gym while we waited. Bride and groom got pictures together under the church carport overhang and later under the entrance of the Morris performing arts theatre. It’s amazing all the beautiful bright footage we got while rain pounded in the background (thanks to great waterproof 4K cameras!). We also filmed beautiful scenes with them inside the Morris Inn lobby area. The gold tones and exquisite architecture provided a romantic background for their portraits. A little rain couldn’t chase the smiles away from this couple. It was a big, beautiful, sparkling wedding day! We’re happy to have added Michelle & Casey to our amazing repertoire of couples married at the Palais Royale.
