Gina + John | Married at the Basilica and Palais Royale

It’s not all the time you meet a couple who are as likable as John and Gina. They’re both very genuine, good hearted people. These characteristics which have no doubt served them well as individuals will surely make for a very successful marriage going forward.

The day got rolling with John, Gina and their party getting ready at the Doubletree Hotel in South Bend. John presented Gina with a beautiful pearl necklace and a surprise reveal of their honeymoon destination. Gina presented John with a beautiful pocket watch and her mother and father with traditional hankies to dry their tears. Gina joked the Old wives’ tail goes “if you catch one of the Bride’s tears with the hanky, your crops will be grow and be watered.”

For the ceremonies Gina and John said their vows in the Basilica and partied afterward at the beautiful Palais Royale.

We wish Gina and John the best that life has to offer!

Courtney & Matt’s Wedding at Indiana Roof Ballroom & St. Patrick’s Church

Courtney and Matt tied the knot in a lovely ceremony at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in the heart of the Fountain Square district of Indianapolis. Their reception was hosted at the beautiful Indiana Roof Ballroom downtown. It was the quintessential midwest summer day and we loved spending it with them experiencing all the beautiful sights and sounds of their wedding.  To paraphrase Courtney’s maid of honor, “marriage isn’t about things like money or competition its about the small moments and gestures of love shared with one another.” Our best to the happy couple, may you enjoy the small moments. Cheers!

Carli & Colin’s Outdoor Wedding at Family Home

I love outside weddings in the summer time. It just seems right for a nature lover like myself to spend a fine summer day outdoors filming with a wonderful couple like Colin and Carli. As Carli’s father mentioned in his speech, Carli was not to be deterred from having her wedding outside at her parents’ home in Brazil, Indiana. And her determination was rewarded from above with a beautiful day for her and Colin. Having a wedding at a parent’s home adds a personal touch to a wedding, giving guests and wedding vendors a glimpse into their lives and upbringing. What an amazing day and couple!

Wedding Videography for White River Garden Wedding at Indianapolis Zoo

Daniel and Yixuan were amazing to work with. This was an extraordinary event for us for a couple of reasons. One, this was the first time I filmed at the White River Gardens in the Indianapolis Zoo and was really blown away by the natural beauty of the space! Another reason was that the couple hired us to do both photography and videography for the day. I don’t typically do wedding photography but in this situation it was a great choice so I shot pictures while our talented filmmakers shot video. I’m so glad we had the opportunity to provide both services! Check out this short highlights from their wonderful event!
