Vows, Rings, Dresses and Flowers. These are some of the elements that make up a wedding day. There of course are many many more details for your average bride and groom to consider and this is why the words “wedding planning” sometimes bring with them some level of stress! But the most crucial element and one that shouldn’t bring too much stress I believe is the love that binds. Without that love all the other elements seem pretty pointless don’t they? Although every detail of Matt and Lauren’s day was skillfully accounted for resulting in a beautiful ceremony and reception at the Omni their love for one another seemed to shine the brightest! From tears when they saw each other for the first time to the kindness they showed one another throughout the day they clearly made one another the priority. So engaged couples when you’re working hard on your wedding lists and start to get some stress don’t forget to take some time to keep your relationship healthy because that’s the key to your best day!

There are often striking similarities between schedules and locations during our wedding season. This year we had two couples in back to back weekends get married at St. Louis De Montfort Church in Fishers, IN. I think it’s God’s way of telling us he has a plan!
The first couple we just posted about, Nora and Dan. The next was Molly and Zach! Molly and Zach are a joy to be around and had a truly amazing wedding day. The day started with some rain showers as we were filming the ladies getting ready. Molly said before meeting Zach she would’ve been totally freaking out about it but so much of her attitude toward life has changed since knowing Zach. His easygoing approach helps her not worry too much about the details! Not to mention she and Zach are serious golfers and a golfer never lets a little rain stop them! So they had fun and enjoyed every minute of the day.
I loved filming at Daniel’s Vineyard for the second time in as many years. It was perfect with it’s covered patios for guests to be indoors and venture outside to overlook the vineyards. The grand ballroom was nicely decked out and perfect for their large group.

Nora and Dan are a beautiful example of a couple so in love and committed it got them through years of long distance relationship including literally hundreds of flights back and forth and thousands of hours FaceTiming together! To say they were ready for this moment in life (their wedding day) would be an understatement! It was awesome to witness the excitement between them and those who came to support them at their union and the culmination of that long sought after togetherness.

Their wedding was a beautiful compilation of locations and moments. Many thanks to our crew Zarah & Sam for filming the day. We began with Nora getting ready at her parents home and Dan getting ready downtown Indy in a swanky hotel. The ceremony was at the lovely St. Louis De Montfort Catholic Church in Fishers. After the ceremony we went for a candid photo/video session at the Ambassador House and Military Park downtown. The Reception did not fail to wow at the Scottish Rite Cathedral.
I think charming and delightful is a good way to describe Claire and Andrew and their wedding day! Claire wanted an intimate sized wedding for close family and friends with an easygoing vibe which their space Fort Harrison provided. When we arrived they were staying in cozy side by side guest houses on the campus which were actually renovated captains houses. The grounds and gazebo were perfect for their ceremony and the reception hall at the Inn fit everyone comfortably for dinner. Their vendors were all very accommodating. We enjoyed working with the banquet facility, 2to1 photography and PBJ Pro DJ throughout the day. From the grounds of the Park to the amazing sunset photo session everything came together perfectly to create the most beautiful experience for them! Take a minute to check out their short film!!
