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!

Sarah & Brian’s Soulful Wedding Day, Filmed in Sunman, Indiana

It’s always humbling when couples like our work and entrust us to film their wedding event. In Sarah and Brian’s case, it was an even bigger honor because Sarah herself is a wedding videographer! Let’s just say that may have added a little pressure. ūüėČ I believe we exceeded expectations thanks to Sarah and Brian both being superstars to work with. I hope to never take for granted how special it is to capture such special moments like at Sarah and Brian’s wedding. It was filled with beauty, pure joy, and a lot of soul. It was also a blast working alongside the talented Sinikka of Soul Creations Photography and hearing the soulful, rich sounds of Brother Smith Band. Our best to Sarah and Brian, may God richly bless your marriage!

 

Jessica & Chris | Wedding Filmed at Forest Hills Country Club

Jessica & Chris truly had a wonderful wedding day. They were married at Forrest Hills Country Club in Richmond, Indiana¬†(70 miles East of Indianapolis) and¬†they began¬†the day at Jessica’s parents beautiful home also in Richmond. Jessica and Chris are the¬†nicest¬†couple. I appreciated¬†how much family meant to each of them, and how they were able to incorporate their love for family into the wedding. As Chris had waited (until the time was right) to¬†propose to Jessica he took plenty of good natured ribbing from family and friends for taking so long but I’d say it turned out just right! Thanks Zarah and Rachel for capturing all the beauty and special moments on film.

Juanita + Hugo {Beautiful Wedding Film}

Hugo and Juanita had a lovely traditional Spanish influenced wedding ceremony and a traditional reception to match. It was great to see how they integrated older traditions within the modern wedding design they chose.

Thanks to Zarah & Ben for filming the day. The editing was done here in our Indianapolis Studio.
