Wow, what a wedding and what a couple! We got to know Joe and Natasha through friends we filmed for nearly five years ago, Amanda & Greg. It was great to see Amanda and Greg and their growing family at the event. They were both standing up in the wedding and their little boy was a ring bearer!
I met Joe and Natasha almost a year before their wedding at a Starbucks in Castleton Square. It didn’t take long to realize they had a beautiful chemistry together and their wedding day would just as lovely. Natasha had a clear vision for what her day would be and I could tell Joe was on the ball with her during the planning! Being in December their wedding had that Christmas in winter feel by incorporating lots of whites plus candles and warm tones which gave the grand hall at Historic Union Station a gorgeous glow. Working with these two was an absolute joy! We wish them all best!

Molly, Steve and their friends were awesome to work with. I could tell at the morning hair and makeup session that everyone was pumped up for the day by the way they cheered non-stop for Molly as she was getting ready at Ado! At the church Steve and his groomsmen had the same outlook with the guys even picking Steve up on their shoulders for a photo op with The Parkers! From the ceremony at Joan of Arc to the reception at Ritz Charles it was a spectacular day with Steve and Molly so happy to marry one another. Enjoy the trailer!
The Last wedding Vibe Productions taped was Krystal Kalb and Braden Weldy December 6th. This was a unique event for several reasons one being the time of year and there just so happened to be a snow storm that day which made for a really neat look and feel. The other being that the ceremony and reception took place in the same room. For brides wondering whether a late year wedding would be successful I would say the answer is definitely yes. If you don’t mind a little cold weather and snow its really cool.
One thing to consider when doing a winter wedding however is location and I would say the fewer the better! Thats what Krystal thought as well being she had the wedding ceremony and reception at the same location. It was held at the Spohn Ballroom in Goshen, IN. an absolutely beautiful restored ballroom on the top floor of the Spohn building. This facility was recently restored and since then has been booked almost solid for events on weekends. So with some clever set up; Arranging seats in the front for the ceremony and tables previously set in the back the ceremony chairs were simply removed after the ceremony and the tables were slid into place all while guests were in the overflow reception area of the ballroom having appetizers. This was all made to flow smoothly by the staff of Pumpernickle’s Catering of Elkhart who also served an excellent dinner.
Overall it was a very romantic evening seeing the snow fall out the windows on main street below and being warm inside. Braden and Krystal had a wonderful wedding and their guests had a great time dining and celebrating with them. Congrats guys!
