A micro wedding, mini wedding or minimony. Call it what you will the idea is pretty cool. It was a nice alternative for Melanie and Aj, the other option being to postpone their wedding day. Going mini meant they could still have the wedding ceremony of their dreams with their closest friends and family in attendance. They could plan it, live it, photograph it with Conforti Photo and of course Vibrant Productions to film it! And they could still host a big party later.
benefits of going mini
There are several benefits to a scaled back micro wedding. Who wants to narrow their guest list down to 30 or 40? Not many couples but it does mean a more intimate group. There’s a different atmosphere in a room of 40 than a room of 300. Fewer guests may mean more flexibility and there’s less pressure to impress extended family and social circles. Going micro shouldn’t necessarily mean going cheap. I like the way Melanie and AJ didn’t skimp on having the things they wanted. They had all the details of their choosing and it showed. Of course, mini weddings can also be a great money saver as many vendors and venues offer special rates for those asking. For example we offered them a modified ceremony only plan with half the usual coverage time and a shortened highlight film.
The day was all about Melanie and AJ and they enjoyed every minute together. There was lots of quality time spent and wonderful memories made. They incorporated a close friend to preside over the ceremony and included their two dogs in the procession. The weather cooperated and we were able to get some amazing footage with them outdoors. Their locations were The Hilton Garden Inn for prep and ceremony at The Sanctuary on Penn in Indianapolis, Indiana.
To say Laura & Glenn’s Wedding was exceptional would be an understatement. Weddings as lovely usually don’t come easy but Laura and Glenn’s wedding seemed like an easy composite of their favorite things. All grounded by love, great design, and lots fun on Laura and Glenn’s part!
Their day, ceremony and reception all took place at Industry 828 Events Center in the historic Industrial center of Indianapolis, Ind. The venue provided plenty of space for their guests with lots of exposed brick and plenty of window light for the getting ready process. Industry also comes with easy access to the city of Indy for pictures and video.
If you watch Laura and Glenn interact for more than a few minutes you realize the ease with which they communicate, you also recognize the trust between them and an easy enjoyment of being together. This all came out so well during video and photos on their wedding day. But don’t take my word for it check out their film and see all the moments that create the tapestry of their love story!!
Courtney and Matt tied the knot in a lovely ceremony at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in the heart of the Fountain Square district of Indianapolis. Their reception was hosted at the beautiful Indiana Roof Ballroom downtown. It was the quintessential midwest summer day and we loved spending it with them experiencing all the beautiful sights and sounds of their wedding. To paraphrase Courtney’s maid of honor, “marriage isn’t about things like money or competition its about the small moments and gestures of love shared with one another.” Our best to the happy couple, may you enjoy the small moments. Cheers!
It was a beautiful winter wedding day for Stephanie and Michael. As we did videography we noticed the mood was almost always whimsical and fun. The light was soft and cool, perfect for pics and video. Stephanie said she always dreamed of a downtown Indianapolis wedding in the evening and her dream became a beautiful reality. Partly due to Indy Gigz’s excellent design work and the Columbia Club’s perfect event accommodations the wedding was a beautiful affair. The Columbia Club looked magical with the christmas lights from the Circle Monument peeking through the windows and a warm fire burning in the hearth during their ceremony. Nothing quite like it! Our best to Stephanie and Michael in their future together!
