Megan and Bob were married in South Bend Indiana at the historic St. Joseph Church by Rev. Matt Fase. They hosted their wedding reception just down the road at the lovely Palais Royale Ballroom, also in South Bend. Both locations were really perfect for their day. With close proximity to the one another and the city of South Bend it made commuting a snap. We were also in walking distance to the St. Joseph River and had some great views there for photos. The Palais is in my opinion one of the most elegant ballrooms in the city and didn’t fail to impress for Megan and Bob. With beautiful white, yellow and gold tones, pin lighting, and floral arrangements it looked amazing. I’ve had a wonderful history filming at the Palais in past years.

The Wedding Day
We began the day getting ready in Megan’s beautiful family home. Lots of natural light for details and makeup with the talented Stephanie Jean were key. Following were the couples heartfelt vows at the church. Speeches by maid of honor and best man and Megan’s fathers hilarious speech. He candidly portrayed the similarities he and Bob shared which helped them get along well. I actually overheard him joke with Bob as he handed off Megan that he would touch his nose during the ceremony if Bob’s team scored, lol.
After all this they packed the dance floor with family and friends for their rocking wedding reception. This lovely evening was made possible by the efforts of many including: event planning by the bride! Room lighting by Pro-Show, catering & coordinating for the reception was Navarre catering, floral arrangements by Poppies By Polly, photography by Kirsten Wray. Cinematography by Vibe Video Productions. Entertainment was provided by the amazing and energizing My Yellow Rickshaw Band
It was an ideal Wedding day for Kerry and Greg. Entering the narrow drive to Saint Mary’s Girls College, the wooded property is so beautiful and tranquil. It’s a private institution with a rich history and boasts over 100 acres of campus along the St. Joseph river in South Bend. The Holy Spirit Chapel nestled into Le Mans Hall treats it’s visitors to soft yellow colors illuminated by natural light and is a wonderful place to be married. A privilege reserved for only students and Alumni such as our bride Kerry!
A grand reception was only fitting at the inviting and elegant Palais Royale. Guests were treated to a choreographed dance by Kerry and Greg, as well as sweet dances between Kerry and her father and Greg and his mother. The whole day was coordinated to perfection by Angie with Belle Behind the Ball and by Richelle with Palais Royale. Our best to Kerry and Greg!
Allison and Brandon hosted their wedding at the Indianapolis ArtsGarden and treated themselves and their guests to the truly unique experience this venue provides. Elevated above street level in the heart of the city the ArtsGarden offers immersive views and exciting atmosphere. Not to mention it’s glass walls and ceilings allow in natural light in abundance.
Our team was with Brandon and Allison from early in the day (to capture Allison and Brandon’s wedding tux and dress going on) until late in the evening for dancing and celebrating. Thanks Sammi Renee Photography for working with us throughout the day to help us capture every moment! It was also truly a pleasure working with the staff at Conrad Indianapolis who did an amazing job coordinating and catering. Thanks to our talented team Zarah and Mitch for filming the day. Here’s a quick taste of the full wedding feature film in a short format.
