Your life is your interruptions…
The quote above was used by Mick and Heather’s priest during the Homily. The sentiment rings true many times in life I’d say. Though these interruptions are unexpected and catch us off guard, they are not random meaningless events. In fact, I believe these interruptions are divinely placed in our path for a reason.
I must say after working closely with Heather’s family to book the shoot and throughout the day they’re the nicest people I could hope to meet! It was also amazing to me how into each other Heather and Mick were the entire day. Sometimes weddings can be so hectic that the couple forgets to relax and enjoy one another through it all. Not these guys! It was clear that they were truly into every moment and really in love. And of course there’s less to stress about with awesome vendors including Katie and Chris with Katie Whitcomb Photo and Angie with Belle Behind the Ball who helped things go flawlessly. The ladies got ready at The Morris Inn on campus and the ceremony was at The Basilica with the reception following at The Blue Heron on Blackthorn golf course. Clear skies and warm weather were the theme of the day!
What can I say other than Allison and Aaron are two outstanding individuals and were a real joy to work with. We loved working at Laurel Hall as beauty was everywhere from the grounds outside where their ceremony was hosted to the event space and bridal suite indoors which are both rich with character and light. These spaces were elegantly envisioned and decorated by Tara Nicole Weddings and Events. We consider ourselves fortunate to capture beauty like that of of Allison and Aaron’s wedding through process of videography and loved telling the story of their day!

We recently had the opportunity to film a stylized shoot at the FORUM in Fishers. Many thanks to our friend Sarah for inviting us to take part. It was a little different than our typical wedding film in that if something didn’t look quite right we could say uhh “can you try that toast again” or “can you turn towards the camera more during the vows”? But seriously, it was awesome exploring the amazing looks there at the venue and working with the talented vendors and models whose contributions made the shoot possible!

Lizzy and David were married by Father Fischer at the historic St. Joseph Church in Mishawaka, Indiana. The reception was at The Morris Inn on the campus of Notre Dame University. The Morris isn’t the largest or most elaborate event spaces in town but it is in my opinion one of the most elegant ballrooms in the city. And it really was perfect for Lizzy and David. With a beautiful yellow linens, spot and up lighting plus floral by Poppies it looked awesome. Years ago we actually had the privilege to be the first videographers to ever film in the Morris after it was constructed. We’ve been back many times since and of course hope to keep coming back for awesome events like this one. Check out some of our other favorite Morris Inn wedding films here!
This lovely evening was made possible by the efforts of many including: event design by the bride! Room lighting by Shawn Saros of Pro-Show, coordinating was Mary Anne of the Morris Inn, floral arrangements by Poppies By Polly, photography by Hannah Grace, and of course Cinematography by Vibe Video Productions. Entertainment was provided by the smooth sounding Blammo Band!
