Katie’s dad said he never thought anyone would be good enough for his little girl. This was his thought process about first meeting her then boyfriend Brett. And so he didn’t expect to like Brett! It’s hard for us girl dad’s to imagine who will take our daughters hand someday. I mean that’s a huge thing. Handing over the responsibility of someone so dear to another person. Someone you must trust will look after her like you do. Will treat her with the love and respect she deserves. It’s just a bit hard to picture that day even though as dad’s we know that it’s good and the day is coming. I pray for the right one for my little girl.
Perhaps these are some of the hesitations Katie’s dad was feeling when meeting Brett for the first time. He described Katie as kind, compassionate, talented and intelligent. It’s obvious Katie has always been the apple of his eye and he wasn’t about to accept just any guy for her. He would have to be a good one. And thankfully Katie found a great guy in Brett. Some of the words used to describe him were genuine, kind, considerate, intelligent, a great sense of humor and optimistic. So, fortunately Brett made a good impression and as they say the rest was history!
Katie and Brett both attended Notre Dame where they met and fell in love their freshman year. They wanted to have their wedding on campus where they shared many special memories. They had a beautiful wedding with colors Slate blue, white and greenery. Their day began at the Morris Inn on campus. The ceremony was at the Basilica of the sacred heart and the reception at Danke Ballroom in the Stadium. All hosted by Venue ND.

Here’s some other amazing videos we’ve filmed at Notre Dame!
What a lovely South Bend wedding for Molly and Jake! We were absolutely stunned by the beauty of this summer wedding at St. Joseph Catholic Church and The Gillespie Center, in South Bend, Indiana. Having a beautiful wedding day is a major win, but Molly & Jake as the bride and groom really made the day amazing by just being themselves and showcasing their love for one another! They are a beautiful match as you can tell and as we heard in speeches by their family and friends. Jake’s reaction during the first looks said it all as he was so excited to see Molly for the first time that day.
According to Molly’s mother. Because of the pandemic there were some serious questions about how many guests would even be able to attend the wedding. After downsizing the guest list several times the frustration no doubt was daunting. So when Molly’s mother asked if they wanted to cancel and move the wedding date Molly and Jake both said a resounding NO!! And as amazing as their day was we’re very glad they did. We’re very grateful to have recorded this beautiful wedding for two very persistent and courageous people. And we’re happy they can share their video with their friends and family who weren’t able to attend. Congratulations, Molly and Jake! We are so happy for you, and as the father of the groom said, “your persistence paid off.”
We hope you enjoy watching this wedding video!

Here at Vibrant Productions we take pride in discovering the unique characteristics of every couple who commission us and highlighting this in their film. For Jessie and Chris I believe it’s their ability to have fun and to attract people to themselves. From our experience we could tell they have many fun and genuine friends. So many in fact they filled the Basilica at Notre Dame all the way to the back rows and jam packed the dance floor at Palais Royal. Not to mention the fun we had filming their super sized wedding party with Jessica Strickland Photography on the field at Notre Dame Stadium. So here’s to Jessie and Chris, two awesome fellow Fighting Irish fans. Cheers!
