A great celebration

When I first spoke with Steve he laid out his vision for their wedding very articulately. It was to be a great wedding celebration of his and Meredith’s love and life together so far and their future. Celebration being a key word for them. I thought this made a lot of sense. With a wedding we tend to look toward the future naturally as it’s a beginning but we should remember we’re also celebrating the past. People that helped raise us, friends and experiences that helped shape us. Even the time, memories and accomplishments made together as a couple. Some couples have more experience together than others based on the length of their engagement and courtship. I’ve filmed for couples who met literally a few months before the day and those who have been dating for 9 years or more!

Meredith and Steve are a couple who had a rich history together already. They’ve been dating several years, have a son together and naturally wanted to make him a big part of their day. What was originally planned to be a big city wedding in Chicago because of stifling covid restrictions became a wedding in the countryside of Plymouth, IN at Swan Lake Resort. I do thing they made the right choice. Not only did they avoid Chicago restrictions on guest count and big city rates, Swan Lake is a premiere wedding resort location. We’ve enjoyed filming there several times before and actually filmed our first ever wedding film there as a company! The resort is located on a golf course, has lodging on site including some rustic log cabins as well as traditional hotel rooms. The couple took advantage of both with Steve staying in the hotel and Meredith in a cabin. Steve and Meredith chose to have their ceremony in a nearby church and hosted the reception at Swan Lake.

The wedding

It was a beautiful event full of incredible speeches and moments. Meredith and Steve were genuinely wonderful to work with throughout the process. They were very intentional and made everyone feel welcome and appreciated on the day. Our best to them and their family. May they make many new memories and celebrate many more life milestones together. Thanks Jacob and Mary Kate for filming the day!

Holly & Trent – Wedding day at Mustard Seed Gardens

Holly and Trent were truly pleasure to be around and work with on their day. Their wedding was unique, filled with personal touches and beautiful moments. Not to mention their venue rocked. The Mustard Seed is a rustic barn and farm that’s been renovated for weddings and was perfect for Holly and Trent’s fall wedding with the leaves changing color and cocktails outside around the fireplace. Check out these highlights to see what I mean!

Matt + Meg {Lafayette, Indiana Wedding}

In late September I filmed for my wife’s cousin, Matt Piekunka, and his bride, Meg Touvell. The wedding was in West Lafayette – the home of Purdue University where they first met. I had a great time both filming and being a family member guest. Thanks Matt and Meg for asking me to film your special day!
