The Bluffs at Conner Prairie wedding | Katie & tony

Katie and Tony had a beautiful August wedding surrounded by friends and family at The Bluffs at Conner Prairie.

This couple had a blast and were awesome to film with! I wasn’t personally available for their date but fortunately it worked to have our team film for them and I was able to do the editing. Katie later gave a special shout out to our videographer Zarah for being the hype girl she didn’t know she needed. Although a little hype is fun for pictures and video I don’t think they really needed it much. Just being themselves and letting their personalities shine through was more than enough. Their genuineness and affection for one another and their guests came through beautifully.

Katie and Tony hosted their wedding at St. Alphonsus Church in Zionsville and the reception at The Bluffs at Conner Prairie. If you haven’t heard of it the Bluffs is a newish venue. It’s the outcome of a partnership between Ritz Charles and Conner Prairie to renovate the historic Eli Lilly Chinese house plus build a new venue in the woods – the Bluffs making both available for special events. It’s interesting that they didn’t create a separate social media pages for the venues. I think they would benefit from doing that because they’re really cool spots. If you’re looking for more pictures of the space social media for the Bluffs is currently under @ritzcharles for Instagram & Facebook. Thanks to our team Zarah & Sam for filming!

Romantic Stylized Shoot at FORUM Events Center || Fishers, Indiana

We recently had the opportunity to film a stylized shoot at the FORUM in Fishers. Many thanks to our friend Sarah for inviting us to take part. It was a little different than our typical wedding film in that if something didn’t look quite right we could say uhh “can you try that toast again” or “can you turn towards the camera more during the vows”? But seriously, it was awesome exploring the amazing looks there at the venue and working with the talented vendors and models whose contributions made the shoot possible!

Kristy & Mario, Wedding Video at The Forum in Fishers, Indiana

Kristy and Mario had a personalized and fun wedding day. It began at St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church in Carmel, Ind. We captured Kristy and her bridesmaids having lunch and rehashing old times as college friends at IU. Mario was also there getting ready with his groomsmen and hamming it up for the camera which came natural for them! After a wonderful homily by their priest Mario and Kristy said their vows and it was go time for the reception! Everyone rolled into The Forum Conference and Events Center in Fishers and the party was underway! I must say Mario and Kristy are pretty light on their feet. They showcased some excellent moves during their first dance which started out slow and transitioned into a traditional mexican fast dance. Mario and Kristy’s event was a wonderful celebration of them coming together and also of their cultures coming together. They incorporated ceremonial events, foods, deserts, and music from both his and her backgrounds. We would like to thank the bride and groom for including us in their special day!
