Rosemary and Greg hosted their fairytale wedding day at the University of Notre Dame where they both attended school. The day began with Rosemary getting ready fine tuning all the details hair, make up etc. Rosemary and her ladies had an awesome chill attitude and enjoyed all the moments and laughs with the cameras rolling. After Rosemary’s first look with her dad we scuttled over to the Basilica to get some coverage of the main man (and groom) Greg and prep for the ceremony. There wasn’t much time to get shots in the Basilica due to the current restrictions in place but we work at the Basilica often and have an efficient routine to get ready there so we did our best and got great looks with Greg! As Greg and Rosemary met one another singing in the choir at ND they wanted to make a nod to that by singing a song on campus with other member of their wedding party and friends who were also in choir. They sang at the Grotto on campus and we were right there to record it all. It was a beautiful moment and a perfect, emotive score to begin their film with. So kudos to the couple for trying something a bit different on their wedding day and for doing a beautiful job with it!! Check out their short film.

Wow, did we love working with these two! And how fortunate we were to be apart of the day. Their wedding was a beautiful summer day with record high temps and equally scorching imagery!! Check out this short trailer first!
Getting ready was a blast at the Morris Inn with beautiful natural light moments filming the lovely bride and handsome groom. We soaked up all the fun along with their wedding party and talented photographers Katie & Chris Whitcomb who always arrange the activities and details to look the finest. Do I have to mention how great it is to have talented, experienced and helpful photographers for your event? Ok, let’s go ahead and show you the Trailer Film then if you have a few extra minutes go ahead and watch their Feature Film as well!
Places matter to us as we move through the journey of life. It’s amazing how places can shape who we are and leave such an impact on our memory. I think the biggest reason for this is because of the people we encounter in those places. Sarah and Justin met on the campus of Notre Dame while they both attended undergrad together, got engaged on campus and fittingly enough said “I do” on the same campus some 6 and half years after first meeting! So to say the university has special place in their hearts and life is by far understatement!
From the getting ready at Morris Inn to the ceremony at the Basilica and following reception at Dahnke Ballroom. It was a day filled with beauty and so much joy. I wish many years of life, love and happiness for Sarah and Justin together!!
Several years ago I filmed for Anne’s sister Leigh and her husband Nate on their wedding day and what an epic day it was. Needless to say I was thrilled when Anne’s mother requested our services again for Anne and Matthew’s wedding. They’re such an amazing, genuine and good looking couple! As their dad said for both sisters he knows how to build beautiful daughters who in turn bring amazing son-in-law’s into the family!
We started the day with the ladies getting ready at the bride’s family home while the guys got prepped at the ceremony location – First Presbyterian Church in Niles, MI. The reception was hosted by VenueND at Downes Ballroom in Notre Dame Stadium.
Our crew Zarah and Sam did an awesome job filming. I’m actually jealous they got to have all the fun shooting as I was filming a previous engagement but I’m proud to have taken part as editor in chief! Thanks again Anne and Matthew, we hope you enjoy your Wedding Film as much as we did making it. Now check out their Trailer!
