James and Mary say I Do! Notre Dame Basilica Wedding

We were blessed to be a small part of Mary and Jame’s marriage story. One that began with years of friendship ultimately culminating in a wedding day. James and Mary were reminded by the best man in his speech and we agree that friendship in marriage is so important and that having a successful marriage depends on building and nurturing that friendship. I think these two will have no trouble with that! Just watching them it’s easy to see the pure joy they have being together and see how their friendship flows effortlessly.

Our team Zarah & Sam began the day with James and Mary at the Basilica bright and early for the 9am ceremony time slot. Outside the Basilica doors Mary and her father had their first look before he walked her down the isle to see James! It was a beautiful ceremony followed by a brunch style reception at the recently renovated Carnegie library events center in South Bend.

Wedding Day Film // Maggie and Mike at St. Pius X and Morris Park Country Club

What should you expect with a gorgeous couple, great family and beautiful locations? A gorgeous Wedding Day of course! There were many things that made Maggie & Mike’s day extra special but when I asked Maggie the bride for special insights she replied. “A couple things that were special was having my grandma’s rosary beads wrapped around my bouquet (she passed away in January) and my mom’s wedding gloves around the bouquet. Also, the weather was supposed to be 100% chance of storms all week and it turned out to be the most beautiful day- 70s and sunny!”

Well we couldn’t have been any happier to film on a beautiful 70’s and sunny day and had a blast working with the couple. The ceremony was at St. Pius X Catholic Church in Granger and Reception at one of our favorites the Morris Park Country Club. Check out this Short Film!

Bobby & Meredith’s Wedding Day, Filmed at St. Joseph’s Farm

Every time I edit a wedding video it takes me on a journey through the wedding day and also through the story of the couple which led them to that day. Meredith and Bobby’s story is beautifully told through the words of friends, families, and themselves but also by things unsaid like the fun they have being together.

One of our goals in creating excellent wedding films is portraying the love and life that lies ahead for our couples in marriage. The best thing is the love story doesn’t end with their wedding day but is only just beginning. Our best to Bobby and Meredith as they write their story and chase their dreams together. And many thanks to our talented team Zarah and Sam for filming the day. Check this sweet wedding film!
