My heart is at home | Wedding at notre dame in south bend, Indiana!

Hearing Mary and Jamie tell their story it’s easy to see their hearts are at home together. Mary says she knew the first time she saw Jamie. Jamie described taking Mary to vacation with his family very early on in their courtship and it being so natural. They are from opposite ends ends of the country. Mary from Florida and Jamie from California but their paths converged at the crossroads of America, Indiana! Since they met at Notre Dame University it was only fitting that they were married in a destination wedding on campus at The Basilica of the Sacred Heart back where it all began.

The idea of home being where the heart is was the meaning behind an awesome song Jamie wrote and performed for Mary at their reception at The Brick. Since they met whether they were just across campus from each other during college years or coasts apart they had found their home in one another. Our best to the new couple. May your home be blessed with happiness and filled with beauty!

Lauren and Jordan | A match made in heaven

perfect match

Lauren and Jordan truly are a match made in heaven! But poor Jordan he had to ask Lauren out three times! Fortunately, on the last time she accepted his invitation. Persistence is key indeed. Lauren said she had seen the signs they were meant to be and although she was hesitant at first she knew right away that Jordan was the one for her.

We love love stories. Sometimes the path is very clear and a couple just knows like Lauren and Jordan did. Other times it’s not so clear and that confidence comes through testing and time. Either way when it’s meant to be it’s meant to be. And with Lauren and Jordan it’s easy to see it was meant to be.

the wedding day

We began the day filming at Lauren’s parents beautiful home in South Bend, IN. It was fantastic seeing all the Wade family again (since Andrea and Garrett’s wedding) and getting covered in Champagne during the girls impromptu champagne toast wasn’t too bad either. After Jordan and his friends finished getting ready at nearby at the Aloft hotel. We witnessed a beautiful first look outdoors by the pool and sped off to the ceremony! Lauren and Jordan incorporated their faith into their ceremony with communion and a cord braiding moment. Said their wedding vows, kissed and that was that. It was reception time at the Palais Royale and the party went down. We were so fortunate to witness this match made in heaven!

inspiration

Whether it’s easy or difficult I believe all couples will face challenging times in their courtship when they must dig deep and recon with the prospect they are choosing a partner for life. That’s pretty stressful! So kudos to all our amazing engaged and married couples who stuck it out through the courtship, engagement, wedding planning and marriage process. Your dedication to one another, faith and love is inspiring. If you’re reading this and facing uncertainty or indecision I would encourage you to look to God for help!

jennifer and patrick married | a Notre Dame and Morris Park CC wedding

There’s not a better match than to marry your best friend. This is one key sentiment that Patrick and Jennifer expressed to one another on their wedding day. That they found and married their best friend in the other.

There’s also not much better than a joyful bride on her wedding day. Fully happy and confident with the choice she has made! And also full of hope and excitement for the future that awaits her and her spouse. This got me thinking why is it that a bride should feel this way? I think it says a lot about the partner she chose. He’s made her feel confident in his love for her, and is a great compliment to her. Additionally she knows he will cherish and protect her all of their days. It’s evident that Patrick has the same joy in marrying Jennifer. And why is that? It must also come from his confidence in choosing the right partner. He knows in Jennifer he has found that one who will love and cherish him all his days.

Their wedding day was lovely. From getting ready at the Embassy Suites to the ceremony at The Basilica and the reception at Morris Park Country Club it was a day full of much beauty, joy and love. Our best to the new Mr. and Mrs Loughery. Thank you Patrick and Jennifer for choosing us to tell your story. We’re so glad you could marry your best friend and we’re excited for what your future holds!

Andrew & Elizabeth Married like champions! | here come the eckert’s!

We enjoyed filming with Andrew and Elizabeth as they married like champions! From the moment I arrived and the ladies were dancing to the classic tune everlasting love, I knew it was going to be great. I think there was some pent up energy since the wedding had been delayed for over a year. Andrew and Elizabeth were married in a small civil ceremony in 2021 when they had to cancel their plans due to covid. They never gave up on their dream of a big Notre Dame wedding though and their persistence paid off! As the best man said in his speech Notre Dame has a history of winning and often takes three years of planning to pull off the championship. Or in their case three years to pull off the dream wedding!

The day began and ended on campus. We started filming at the Morris Inn, a short walk from the Basilica and ceremony site. Getting ready was really fun. Andrew showed us his jacket with special lining portraying the Dome and brought along his collection of ND football helmets to see. Of course the ladies were super pumped for Elizabeth and loved prepping with her. The ceremony was beautiful with a very full room of guests. And after the ceremony we filmed all around campus in the snow and cold! Kudos to the wedding party for braving that wind chill. Although we didn’t linger long outdoors we filmed beautiful scenes with the couple. All followed up by a picture perfect wedding reception with dances and speeches at the stadium in the beautiful Dahnke Ballroom. I think it’s safe to say Andrew and Elizabeth married like champions! Check out their short film!!

incredible Indianapolis wedding day at mavris arts & event center for carly & nick!

It was a beautiful day for Carly and Nick’s wedding at Mavris Arts and Events Center in Indianapolis, IN. I’ve filmed at the The Mavris several times before but I’d never seen the space so fully used as I did for Carly and Nick’s wedding. In all there were 4 floor location changes throughout the day all within the venue. Ceremony was on the 1st floor. Cocktail hour on the third floor. The grand entrance and speeches on the 2nd followed by dinner with three unique serving stations. And last but maybe most incredible an epic baby gender reveal, and a raging dance party back on the 3rd floor!

Back up to the ceremony. It was hosted on the first floor which is normally the lobby. I wasn’t fully sure how that would work at first but it was absolutely great. There’s actually more space for the guests, an elegant stairwell for the bride’s entrance and plenty of what makes the Mavris shine, original wood and brick surfaces. Their ceremony was great. Carly and Nick said their vows and pledged devotion to one another from the heart. The minister joked it’s usually the bride who cries from being overcome with emotion but in their case it was Nick. It’s really cool to see a groom confident enough to share his feelings and so passionate about his bride. I’m happy we were there to capture it all for them.

All this came together smoothly for an awesome wedding at Mavris Arts and many amazing memories for the bride and groom, their family and friends. Check out their wedding day story!
