Sometimes in order to create something beautiful you need to have a vision before you create. Lexi’s dad mentioned in his father of the bride speech that when they walked into the barn for the first time to visit it was a cold winter day and he had a hard time envisioning how it would look and feel for the wedding but was he was blown away by the outcome on the wedding day! Lexi and her mother along with their vendors & St. Joe Farm had that vision and left no stone unturned with creating the picture perfect wedding day!
Lexi chose a lovely earth tone color palette of navy, cinnamon, orange and gold accented with their floral that suited the venue and season. The bridesmaids dresses were cinnamon orange which was a hard color to describe but looked amazing! Although they hosted their wedding ceremony off site at St. Puis X Catholic Church they did their wedding prep at St. Joe Farm in an adjacent structure designated for a bride/groom suite. After the ceremony we returned directly to the farm for their wedding pictures and reception celebration.
St. Joe farm is really special as it’s a barn space but a massive space, with lot’s of room overhead not interrupted by a loft. It’s also an original wood structure dating back 100 plus years. And in addition there’s plenty of unique spaces around the farm for your photography sessions. One location that really jumps out is a hay mow that can open up for a photo in another small barn on the property. You can see this in the very last scene of Lexi and Brock’s film. Having great photo settings is huge when you’re looking at a rural venue where you will be all day and won’t have time to travel to another photo site because you’re out in the country and there isn’t other options. So if you’re looking for a barn wedding venue to host a good sized crowd it’s definitely one to look at.

Caitlin & Ryan have a beautiful story of how they met and fell in love. Telling their story was a matter of putting the pieces together from speeches and from their own words that they wrote to one another. One common thread through the stories was that Ryan knew the first time he saw Caitlin that she would be his wife one day. He even said this aloud to his friend at that moment, wow! Maybe Caitlin wasn’t as sure as Ryan was right out the gate. But she was soon to realize she had found Mr. right and the rest.. after several years of dating was history!
I loved all the speeches and although I don’t usually include the groom thank you speech in the highlights film Ryan’s speech was special. I like that he didn’t feel the need to thank Caitlin’s parents for the wedding. What he did thank them for is how they raised their daughter and for accepting him into their family as a son-in-law. Hosting a wedding is a huge gift of resources however raising a child in a way that will enable them as a healthy adult and a blessing to their spouse then giving them to that spouse is the greatest gift.
Hiring a wedding videographer is important, but we believe hiring the videographer who knows how to tell your story is even better. We know how fast the day goes by and in the end you want to remember it through the eyes of an expert storyteller that you can trust!
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.
When my brother in law Garrett and I arrived at Audrey and Jalen’s event we were greeted by Jalen who let us know we were kind of a big deal for their wedding! And Audrey reaffirmed that soon after by letting us know she had been very excited about the videography for the day! This made us feel very welcomed and it was really special to know that they cared about our work so much. As a company who cares about our work and clients we always love to be appreciated!
Audrey and Jalen were the sweetest couple to work with. You could tell every aspect of their day had been lovingly considered by themselves and their planner Audra of Hearts Arrow Events. The mood was fun and light, natural and romantic.
The event took place at Three Fat Labs Wedding and Event Barn in Greencastle, Indiana. The location is a beautiful handmade barn set on 30 private acres of woods. The barn was built from timber harvested from the property. The property also includes a bed and breakfast which Jalen and Audrey and their families rented out for their wedding weekend. Also on site is a separate getting ready cottage where the ladies were in the morning. We filmed Audrey getting her hair and makeup finished and wedding details like the dress, rings and shoes in the bride’s cottage. We filmed Jalen and his groomsmen hanging out and getting ready in the basement of the event barn. The ceremony took place on site behind the barn where there is a patio looking over the woods. That evening was filled with speeches and dancing at their reception. All in all the sights and sounds of the day were absolutely beautiful. Take a few minutes to enjoy their film and relive the day with us!
