Wow, what a wedding and what a couple! We got to know Joe and Natasha through friends we filmed for nearly five years ago, Amanda & Greg. It was great to see Amanda and Greg and their growing family at the event. They were both standing up in the wedding and their little boy was a ring bearer!
I met Joe and Natasha almost a year before their wedding at a Starbucks in Castleton Square. It didn’t take long to realize they had a beautiful chemistry together and their wedding day would just as lovely. Natasha had a clear vision for what her day would be and I could tell Joe was on the ball with her during the planning! Being in December their wedding had that Christmas in winter feel by incorporating lots of whites plus candles and warm tones which gave the grand hall at Historic Union Station a gorgeous glow. Working with these two was an absolute joy! We wish them all best!

Wow, what a day! What an adventure of sights, sounds and all the feels. We followed Rachelle and Brooks down memory lane in their own words learning about how everything began with a non date date to a Chicago cubs game. How they went from friends going to a baseball game then full circle to their wedding day. They celebrated well with awesome vows, notes, speeches, dances and an epic sparkler send off in a classic sports car at sunset! Join us in celebrating Rachelle and Brook’s wedding and journey through their day via this heartwarming wedding film! Thanks to Zarah and Sam for filming and Brooks and Rachelle for including us in their day.
We recently had the privilege to film Shannon and Adam’s wedding in Lafayette, Indiana. Shannon first contacted me during the pandemic lockdown back in May. She and her then fiancé Adam were gracious and took plenty of time to call and talk with me. I noted right away they were a great team! Two kind and thoughtful people. We talked over the challenges of doing life and planning a wedding during a lockdown and about how they met at their work both being engineers for a company in Lafayette, Indiana. It’s really neat to hear how God’s hand in providence brought them together from far apart. Adam coming from Texas and Shannon from her study abroad in Germany both to Lafayette, Indiana where they both felt comfortable settling in and starting a life together. Long story short Shannon and Adam had been planning their wedding for awhile and were a bit ruffled by the pandemic but not deterred from their plans to be married! They kept their date but did need to scale back. This is where we the videographers came into the picture, to help tell their story for those who weren’t able to attend. I loved Shannon and Adam’s attitude and positivity. Rather than being beat down about the circumstances they wanted to make the best of it, enjoy the day and enjoy getting married to each other. It’s that attitude that made their day a great success and I know will serve them well in their married life together! Our best to Adam and Shannon, may all your dreams come true and have many happy years together!

I got a call from a concerned mother not long ago telling me about how her son and daughter-in law’s wedding day plans had changed last minute due to the videographer having health concerns and and how they now needed a videographer late notice. As it turned out I was available and was delighted to secure the date! So we began to make plans. Between talking with Jasmine’s mother and with Jasmine and James as they were in the airport on their way here we got the details sorted out and all was set! Come to find out the videographer we were replacing was then available to make it for shooting photos so they had double the talent.
It didn’t take long to realize that Jasmine and James are such a great down to earth thoughtful couple. Their wedding ceremony at Nappanee Missionary Church was beautiful with special songs, a sand ceremony, heartfelt vows and a moving message by their minister who joined them from LA to preside over the wedding. They made time for the things that were important to them including friends and family and they made certain to take the time to look around and take it all in throughout the day. Making sure not to let the moments pass by unnoticed. Well enough blogging now check out the film here!
We’re happy to share Carrie and Mark’s Wedding Film! It took a lot to keep their date and wedding plans intact during the pandemic but they pulled it off! From large last minute changes like a new wedding venue to small adjustments such as seating arrangements and elbows rather than handshakes they made it work and made the best of every minute! Like Carrie said “I don’t want to put off getting married any more. Now more than ever I realize how important it is to spend time with the people we love. ” What a beautiful take away from all this. Congrats Carrie and Mark!
