Emily and Evan’s wedding was hosted in Elkhart, Indiana otherwise referred to as Heart City. Emily and Evan were fun, easygoing and very in love with one another. It’s also easy to tell they are both very loved by their many friends and family who joined them on their day.
Our time started with Emily and her ladies at the Blown Away hair and makeup salon in South Bend, Indiana. I can never overstate the importance of getting ready time for our films and we were fortunate to have plenty of that thanks to Emily’s mother who was so helpful with the wedding plans. It’s true what they say you know mother knows best! There was a great vibe that morning as the ladies got prepped and pretty. Those moments are important as getting ready is when the wedding experience really starts to kick in for the bride. She can physically see her transformation beginning and the excitement becomes palpable. I’ve often filmed brides prepping with just a friend or two but it’s especially fun when a bride’s full squad is there to support her! In addition to being fun it helps ease tension by bringing normalcy to the days events..
Evan at the same time was getting ready and hanging with his groomsmen while waiting for the days events to begin. With the guys it’s always less about appearance and more about jokes and camaraderie. The camaraderie was awesome and seemed to keep Evan chill. He was relaxed and enjoying his last moments of singleness, giving gifts to his groomsmen, writing a letter to Emily and suiting up for the day. Some of his closest confidants were there for him as they had been through the years. As a bride and groom you want those you trust and are comfortable with there at this crucial point of the day.
Our best to the new Mr and Mrs! May you have many years of wedded success together.
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!

It’s not very often we get to shoot video for multiple weddings from within the same family but this was the case with Kelly and Tyler!
Kelly contacted me early on about her August wedding day. I was excited to hear she had been looking forward to having me film her wedding since seeing her sisters video several years ago!
Kelly and Tyler, it was a privilege to film the beauty of your wedding day and see you let loose and enjoy yourselves as the day unfolded. The two of you are a beautiful couple. Thank you for having us tell the story of your day. Congratulations!
Stacey and Taylor had a beautiful, wistful wedding day at the Indiana State Museum. We love weddings at the ISM. It’s a unique location right on the Canal Walk with fantastic photo opportunities and amazing views of Indianapolis. The grounds are especially great on a nice day when there’s people walking, running, paddle-boating or bicycle riding. That kinetic energy between people, nature and space creates an almost magical atmosphere. The kind which I think embodies the spirit of a wedding. Maybe a way to describe it is like stepping into the scene from (La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat) one of my favorite paintings 🙂
Well enough from me, check out this sweet couples wedding film!!
