Married like champions at Notre Dame basilica and Dahnke ballroom wedding. Here come the Eckert's!

Andrew & Elizabeth Married like champions! | here come the eckert’s!

We enjoyed filming with Andrew and Elizabeth as they married like champions! From the moment I arrived and the ladies were dancing to the classic tune everlasting love, I knew it was going to be great. I think there was some pent up energy since the wedding had been delayed for over a year. Andrew and Elizabeth were married in a small civil ceremony in 2021 when they had to cancel their plans due to covid. They never gave up on their dream of a big Notre Dame wedding though and their persistence paid off! As the best man said in his speech Notre Dame has a history of winning and often takes three years of planning to pull off the championship. Or in their case three years to pull off the dream wedding!

The day began and ended on campus. We started filming at the Morris Inn, a short walk from the Basilica and ceremony site. Getting ready was really fun. Andrew showed us his jacket with special lining portraying the Dome and brought along his collection of ND football helmets to see. Of course the ladies were super pumped for Elizabeth and loved prepping with her. The ceremony was beautiful with a very full room of guests. And after the ceremony we filmed all around campus in the snow and cold! Kudos to the wedding party for braving that wind chill. Although we didn’t linger long outdoors we filmed beautiful scenes with the couple. All followed up by a picture perfect wedding reception with dances and speeches at the stadium in the beautiful Dahnke Ballroom. I think it’s safe to say Andrew and Elizabeth married like champions! Check out their short film!!

Wedding Videographers for Karrmann & Korbin in Carmel, Indiana

There was such an ease in working with Karrmann and Korbin. From the time we began filming at Karrmann’s parents home in Carmel everyone treated us like friends and made us feel right at home! It was a perfect April day for a wedding and we loved every minute filming outdoors at the Central Park in Carmel, IN with the couple and Taylor Thoman Photography. We also had a great time recording video for their beautiful, inspired ceremony at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church and wrapped up the evening perfectly at 502 East Event Centre with speeches, dances and dinner. Our best to the new Mr. and Mrs!

Brandi & Brian’s Wedding {Filmed at Avon Gardens}

I met Brandi and Brian nearly two years ago in Broad Ripple at Starbucks. Although it was elbow to elbow crowded and we had to shout to be heard we established a great connection and I knew we would have a great time working together. As you can see from their film it was a lovely day full of amazing moments. Our best to Bk and Brandi!

Dan and Colleen {Wedding Trailer Film} at Notre Dame and Palais Royale

It was great spending the weekend with Colleen and Dan. To say they know how to throw a party would be an understatement. They and their families left no stone unturned from their Rehearsal dinner at the Exchange in South Bend which we were present to record to their amazing wedding day.

They were married at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on the campus of Notre Dame, IN.  After the ceremony the campus served as a backdrop for gorgeous candid shots taken along with the talented Josephiney Photography. Family is very important to Colleen and Dan, and they were active participants in the wedding day. Colleen’s sisters  had double duty as maid of honor, and Dan’s sister was also in the wedding party. Both father’s gave eloquent speeches at the rehearsal dinner and reception respectively.

The reception was at the Palais Royale. The grand venue was perfect for the large group of guests plus the band for dancing. The event design added to the elegance of the space and candles all along the balcony where the couple was introduced were a unique touch. You can see what I’m talking about in their trailer film!
