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!

Krystal & Parker’s Lake James Wedding Film

It was a beautiful day in Angola, IN for Krystal and Parker’s Wedding! Lake James at Pokagan St. Park was the perfect setting. It’s a hotel resort area with a large lawn and lake as a backdrop for photos and just has a great easygoing vibe.

Krystal is the third of the Schwartz sisters to be married and I’ve been privileged to film for all of their weddings so far! The family and spouses are just great individuals who know how to throw a party and have fun. Our best to Krystal and Parker!

Sarah & Brian’s Soulful Wedding Day, Filmed in Sunman, Indiana

It’s always humbling when couples like our work and entrust us to film their wedding event. In Sarah and Brian’s case, it was an even bigger honor because Sarah herself is a wedding videographer! Let’s just say that may have added a little pressure. 😉 I believe we exceeded expectations thanks to Sarah and Brian both being superstars to work with. I hope to never take for granted how special it is to capture such special moments like at Sarah and Brian’s wedding. It was filled with beauty, pure joy, and a lot of soul. It was also a blast working alongside the talented Sinikka of Soul Creations Photography and hearing the soulful, rich sounds of Brother Smith Band. Our best to Sarah and Brian, may God richly bless your marriage!
