New Years Eve Wedding day for Kaley and Sean! Wintery white wedding video filmed at The Armory in South Bend, IN.

New Years Eve wedding filmed at The Armory in South Bend

This is maybe the third New Years Eve wedding I’ve filmed in my career and I have great memories of them all. I mean what’s not to like about a New Years Eve wedding? Lot’s of champagne, glitter & noisemakers, plus guests who are ready to celebrate! The latest, Kaley and Sean’s wedding may be one of our most memorable yet.

The day

I’ve gotten to know Sean’s family over the years filming his siblings weddings so it was great to see them all again. It was a perfect wedding day. Wintery white & brisk but not too cold. The locations they chose were on point from the getting ready session at Knownover Farmstead to the reception at The Armory in South Bend. But the main reason the day was an amazing success was Sean, Kaley and their families. They were all very happy for the couple, supportive and a joy to work with.

Locations

I mentioned locations. I always find locations are key to any event. Sean’s mother Gail actually discovered the Knownover farmstead in Granger for her daughter Heathers & Ryan’s wedding a couple years back. I had never heard of it before then but was very impressed. Sean and Kaley like Heather and Ryan rented the whole house for the weekend and it was again a perfect choice. We filmed Kaley getting ready in the main level of the house with the oak floors and bay windows. And filmed the guys hanging out in the rustic (pub like) basement. The results were stunning. Not to mention the cozy front yard photo session for their first look plus wedding party photos.

the countdown!

Kaley & Sean hosted a beautiful ceremony at Trinity Lutheran Church. Their reception venue choice was the Armory in South Bend. The Armory had that perfect vibe for a New Years Eve event. Bustling wine bar in the front. Crystal chandeliers, large dance floor and a sweet cocktail and bar area for guests. Bride/groom and their guests got busy drinking champagne and danced the night away. We were all having such a great time midnight snuck right up on us. I forgot all about the ball drop until the dj started counting down the seconds and soon we were out of 2020 and into 2021! It was a beautiful New Years Eve wedding topped with a Kiss at midnight and sparkler exit for the bride and groom!

Congrats to the newlyweds may your lives be full of blessing, love and joy!

Brandon & Amelia’s Winter Wedding // at Tabor Hill Winery in Buchanan, MI

Brandon and Amelia hosted their wedding event outdoors in November at Tabor Hill Winery in Buchanan, Michigan. It was a perfect day for a winter wedding with a little snow on the ground but clear skies and not too cool. Amelia, her family and co-workers with Burns Rentals did an amazing job designing and furnishing the event. We were honored to be part of their celebration!

Pete & Molly’s Indianapolis Wedding at Scottish Rite and Indianapolis Central Library

With all the elements of a show stopping wedding day Molly & Pete’s wedding was the toast of the town! There were a lot of moving parts with a giant, fun wedding party and several locations but Indy Gigz did an amazing job of coordinating the multi-site event and it went off without a glitch.

Molly and Pete

We started the day filming Molly and Pete and their bridesmaids and groomsmen getting ready at The Alexander Hotel (guys) and the Omni Hotel (ladies). Molly gifted Pete with an amazing Omega watch and he gave her a second diamond ring!Pete's Watch

The wedding ceremony was beautiful and hosted at Indianapolis Central Library in the historic Simon Reading Room. Followed by their equally beautiful reception at the nearby Scottish Rite Cathedral.
