Journeyman Distillery wedding | Three Oaks, MI | Natalie and Eric

The journeyman!

What a space! Natalie and Eric hosted their Journeyman Distillery wedding in Three Oaks, Michigan. We love Michigan weddings Journeyman is actually a distillery, restaurant and event venue all under one roof. The wedding and reception took place in Warren Hall one of three event spaces on the third floor. The upstairs event areas are full of natural light which are perfect for cinematography. Everything about the space was warm, inviting and full of character. The building space was originally the feather bone factory, a corset and buggy whip maker some 100 years ago and still bears old industrial remnants as reminders of that. The bottom floor of the space is the Staymaker restaurant, whiskey distillery and store. If you enjoy the sweet smell of hash brewing and the savory aroma of food on the grill you’ll love this place. I liked the chill vibe of the restaurant and whiskey bar with tasting tours going on. You might think a wedding wouldn’t want to share a building with a restaurant full of strangers but that’s kind of the culture of an up scale distillery. People, food and drink and social interaction. The Journeyman is known for it’s excellent whiskey and having special drinks & whiskey on site is a boon for many wedding guests.

The wedding!

Bride and groom got prepped on site, did their first look in an empty bar on the 1st floor. Then we went upstairs to the venue where we enjoyed their photo session in the Grainery. They had a beautiful ceremony right at sunset we could watch through the windows. Then it was a room flip from ceremony to reception while guests enjoyed cocktails nearby. Floral and event design by Snapdragon designs and Cyndi Basker from Celebrated Events. Guests enjoyed day of party favors, catering and drinks by Journeyman. A nice advantage of having a restaurant/distillery in house! The sights and sounds of Natalie and Eric’s wedding were absolutely lovely. We had a fantastic time seeing their event unfold in before our eyes and our cameras! Eric was a former professional soccer player and he and his friends put some of the energy and endurance required for soccer towards their dancing! It was a wild dance floor let me tell you.

From their first look when we arrived to getting down on the dance floor Natalie & Eric’s energy and chemistry together was amazing. Congrats to the new Mr and Mrs. Gehrig!

Audrey + Jalen’s Wedding Day // Filmed at Three Fat Labs Event Barn

Great videographer!

When my assistant and I arrived at 3 Fat Labs we were greeted by Jalen who let us know we were kind of a big deal for their wedding day. We were like awesome, and soon Audrey reaffirmed this by letting us know we were a top priority for her! It was really special to know they cared this much about our work.  Sometimes video isn’t deemed very important which is a shame but we always take our work seriously. We’re a company who cares about our work and our clients!

Amazing couple!

Audrey and Jalen were the sweetest couple to work with. Every aspect of their day had been lovingly considered. Their planner and event designer Audra of Hearts Arrow Events executed the plan perfectly. The mood was fun, light, natural and romantic.

beautiful venue!

Three Fat Labs Wedding and Event Barn in Greencastle, Indiana hosted the event. Have I mentioned we love barn weddings? Where else can you roll in, meet the property owner first thing and check out the wood smoker cooking dinner on site? At 3 Fat Labs the main event space is a beautiful handmade barn set on 30 private acres of woods. Fun fact, the structures are made from timber harvested on the property itself. The property also includes a bed and breakfast which can be rented by the wedding guests.

Also on site is a separate bride’s cottage. It was here in the bride cottage we filmed Audrey getting her hair and makeup finished. Meanwhile Jalen and his guys were hanging out and getting ready in the basement of the event barn. The ceremony took place on site behind the barn on a patio looking over the woods. The evening was filled with speeches and dancing at their reception. All in all the sights and sounds of the day were absolutely beautiful. Take a few minutes to enjoy their film and relive the day with us!

Brittany & Braden’s Wedding Day | Alsip, Illinois

Brittany and Braden are shared their Wedding Day with friends and family in style at The Chateau Bu-She’ in Alsip, Ill. The reception hall and ceremony site were conveniently in the  same building, attached but separate. The reception was indoors while the ceremony was hosted under a beautiful covered atrium that allowed the outside light in while still being climate controlled inside.

We really enjoyed spending the day with Brittany and Braden. They’re two very endearing individuals and really perfect for one another! And as the preacher mentioned they shared the most amazing, handwritten vows for one another. Our thanks for Brittany and Braden for having us come out to film your day. May you have joy and peace and as Brittany’s father said enjoy “hanging out” as husband and wife the rest of your lives together!

Bobby & Meredith’s Wedding Day, Filmed at St. Joseph’s Farm

Every time I edit a wedding video it takes me on a journey through the wedding day and also through the story of the couple which led them to that day. Meredith and Bobby’s story is beautifully told through the words of friends, families, and themselves but also by things unsaid like the fun they have being together.

One of our goals in creating excellent wedding films is portraying the love and life that lies ahead for our couples in marriage. The best thing is the love story doesn’t end with their wedding day but is only just beginning. Our best to Bobby and Meredith as they write their story and chase their dreams together. And many thanks to our talented team Zarah and Sam for filming the day. Check this sweet wedding film!
