Molly & Jake’s Lovely South Bend Wedding Day Video

What a lovely South Bend wedding for Molly and Jake! We were absolutely stunned by the beauty of this summer wedding at St. Joseph Catholic Church and The Gillespie Center, in South Bend, Indiana. Having a beautiful wedding day is a major win, but Molly & Jake as the bride and groom really made the day amazing by just being themselves and showcasing their love for one another! They are a beautiful match as you can tell and as we heard in speeches by their family and friends. Jake’s reaction during the first looks said it all as he was so excited to see Molly for the first time that day.

According to Molly’s mother. Because of the pandemic there were some serious questions about how many guests would even be able to attend the wedding. After downsizing the guest list several times the frustration no doubt was daunting. So when Molly’s mother asked if they wanted to cancel and move the wedding date Molly and Jake both said a resounding NO!! And as amazing as their day was we’re very glad they did. We’re very grateful to have recorded this beautiful wedding for two very persistent and courageous people. And we’re happy they can share their video with their friends and family who weren’t able to attend. Congratulations, Molly and Jake! We are so happy for you, and as the father of the groom said, “your persistence paid off.”

We hope you enjoy watching this wedding video!

divine road trip married at St. Monica and Morris Park CC in South Ben

Chrissy and Rick’s Divine Road Trip as Husband and Wife!

Wow, what fun it was to witness the beginning of Chrissy and Rick’s divine road trip as husband and wife! Their whole day was great. Chrissy, Rick and their wedding party had no trouble goofing around and posing for us and the lovely Sarah Sage Photo who kindly referenced us to them.

Highlights

A couple of additional highlights. Their priest was not only hilarious but very insightful in his homily. He correlated marriage to a divine road trip. I’ve never heard this expression used but it really makes sense. In marriage much like a road trip you choose your partner and start your adventure. On a long road trip you better like your travel partner because you’re going to be spending a lot of time together. Also as in marriage choose someone who can help you get through. The divine aspect being marriage is orchestrated and ordained by God. Marriage is his idea. So there you have it, a divine road trip! Another highlight, though not as thought provoking. Rick and his groomsmen made a human pyramid! That’s something isn’t it? I’m glad to say the pyramid stood strong and no one was crushed. So there’s a good metaphor for Chrissy and Rick’s marriage!

The wedding

The wedding ceremony was at the beautiful St. Monica Catholic church and the reception at the newly renovated and amazing Morris Park Country Club in South Bend, Indiana. In fact Chrissy and Rick were the very first couple to host a reception at Morris Park since it’s remodel so they got to do their turns on a brand new dance floor and we got a first look at all the new updates. And of course Elena and team did a great job serving a delicious dinner and hosting us all. Also check out the new space in the film we did for Lindsay and Stephen just a couple weeks later!

Our best to Chrissy & Rick in their divine road trip as husband and wife!

Wedding at Industry 828 was great. The Industrial venue boasts lots of exposed brick and plenty of natural light. Enjoy Laura & Glenn's film!

Wedding at Industry 828 in Indianapolis, Ind. | Laura & Glenn

To say Laura & Glenn’s Wedding at Industry 828 was exceptional would be an understatement. Weddings as lovely usually don’t come easy. 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. The venue has a cool industrial vibe with lots of exposed brick and natural light for getting ready and photos. 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 can tell they’re great together.  The ease with which they communicate is on point. You also recognize the trust between them and just an easy enjoyment being together. This all came out so well during video and photos on their wedding day. Don’t take my word for it though. Check out their film and see all the moments that create the tapestry of their love story!!

Tyler and Kelly’s Stylish Wedding Day

It’s not very often we get to shoot video for multiple weddings from within the same family but this was the case with Kelly and Tyler!

Kelly contacted me early on about her August wedding day. I was excited to hear she had been looking forward to having me film her wedding since seeing her sisters video several years ago!

Kelly and Tyler, it was a privilege to film the beauty of your wedding day and see you let loose and enjoy yourselves as the day unfolded. The two of you are a beautiful couple. Thank you for having us tell the story of your day. Congratulations!
