Cassidy and Bryon’s wedding film | A love story for the ages

The Love story

I love to hear a good love story, don’t you? After all, that is why we do what we do here at Vibrant. Cassidy and Bryon are blessed to have a timeless love story to tell their children someday. During the ceremony the minister did a beautiful job of telling their story and Bryon’s brother added more detail during his speech at the reception. Naturally, I tried to include as much of their story as I could in their feature film because their story is what made their union. Cassidy met Bryon while interning at his church in his hometown of Almo, Michigan. After they struck up a friendship and got to know one another Bryon wanted to ask Cassidy out but assumed she had already placed him in the dreaded friend zone! It wasn’t until Bryon’s brother and another influential person (who the minister jokingly referred to as “a prophet”) in his life encouraged him to just go ahead and ask her out. So he did. And of course the rest was history.

The wedding Film

This is where we come in. Bryon and Cassidy asked us to capture their wedding that took place at Cassidy’s home church Church at the Crossing in Indianapolis. They hosted family and friends during their reception at the beautiful Iron + Ember in Carmel. We had awesome weather for filming outdoors given it was in November. Having a fall wedding can be a risk but it was well worth it. There were still some colorful leaves on the trees and we had an incredibly warm day which made filming portraits and cocktails outdoors a delight.

We never grow tired of the opportunity to capture someone’s special day. Bryon and Cassidy – thank you for making our jobs easy! We wish you the best knowing your best is yet to come — cheers!

high school sweethearts married. Wedding plans, venue, locations and vendors changed last minute. shutdown and rescheduled wedding day.

Erica & Greg | High school sweethearts finally married at The University of Notre Dame

The wait

It’s hard to believe but Erica and Greg were high school sweethearts married after some nine years dating! They met in high school, attended Notre Dame together, graduated and began their careers together. All while maintaining a healthy relationship and deferring marriage until the time was right. Wow, that’s incredible!

I can’t imagine waiting 9 years to get married but due to shutdowns they had to wait even longer than planned. Their wedding was planned for spring and got postponed to late summer. fortunately we were free on their new date and could still film for them. Then just two weeks before their new wedding date the venue they were planning to host at had a big scare and mandatory lockdown go in effect. This left their wedding venue and guest hotel shuttered just two weeks prior to the event. Whelp, what terrible timing! But they didn’t give up and went to work on planning for the 3rd time!

The wedding

With only 8 days to go before the wedding Erica’s mother aka (rockstar) wedding planner went into high gear searching out and booking a new venue. This included updates with vendors. Changing the lighting, food service, flowers and room design. Not to mention updating all the guests to accommodations! The university event professionals were so gracious and so helpful as always through it all. They assisted with free transportation and other services to help facilitate Erica and Greg’s location switch.

It was all such a big and challenging process Erica’s dad got emotional during his speech thanking the vendors. To which he quipped he’s probably the first fob to cry while thanking the vendor teams 🙂 Long story short Erica and Greg were able to have their day and hosted a really breathtaking wedding at Gillespie conference center. If you’re looking at the venue check out this other great film we did there for Molly & Jake!

We couldn’t have been more happy to be there for Erica & Greg to see their day unfold. It was a privilege to create a beautiful film to describe their wedding day. Congrats to you Erica and Greg you’ve come along way, from high school sweethearts to married professionals. We celebrate you guys!

A wedding emergency! Last minute schedule change. Cancelled videographers so we filled in a pinch to fit their schedule and film the day!

Wedding day bliss for James and Jaz! | at Nappanee Missionary Church

Am I a wedding hero? Lol sometimes I get the chance to feel like it. It all started with a worried phone call from Jame’s mother. She was scrambling due to a last minute cancellation to find a videographer for her son and daughter in law Jasmine’s wedding. I was sorry to hear about the unfortunate situation they were in but I was really happy to help in a pinch. In fact it turned out I knew James the groom from our high school days and I was excited to make the connection with their family.

So we began to make plans. From talking with the mob, the mog (that’s mother of the groom) and James & Jasmine as they were traveling home for their wedding. Yes, it was that close! We got the details sorted out. James and Jasmine were very easygoing about the whole thing despite their plans suddenly changing which I was really impressed by and grateful for.

It didn’t take long to realize that Jasmine and James are a very special much loved couple. They’re also models and fitness guru’s! Check out their site James and Jazz. Getting great looking footage wasn’t hard when working with these two and let me tell you they look fierce together!

Their wedding ceremony at Nappanee Missionary Church was beautiful with special songs, a sand ceremony, heartfelt vows and a moving message by their minister. One thing we noticed is they made time for the things that were important to them about their day. And they made certain to take the time to look around and take it all in throughout the day. I think it’s great when a couple is in the moment. Well enough blogging now check out the real wedding heroes!

A Union Station Wedding in Indianapolis | Joe & Natasha

Wow, what a wedding and what a couple! We got to know Joe and Natasha through friends we filmed for nearly five years ago, Amanda & Greg. It was great to see Amanda and Greg and their growing family at the event. They were both standing up in the wedding and their little boy was a ring bearer!

I met Joe and Natasha almost a year before their wedding at a Starbucks in Castleton Square. It didn’t take long to realize they had a beautiful chemistry together and their wedding day would just as lovely. Natasha had a clear vision for what her day would be and I could tell Joe was on the ball with her during the planning! Being in December their wedding had that Christmas in winter feel by incorporating lots of whites plus candles and warm tones which gave the grand hall at Historic Union Station a gorgeous glow. Working with these two was an absolute joy! We wish them all best!
