Molly and Adam’s wedding was another story of triumph over adversity in the midst of a very goofy, disruptive wedding season! Molly and Adam were married in a scaled back ceremony on their original wedding day in May. This was right when restrictions were so tight however they couldn’t invite many friends or family so they hosted a second celebration of their vow renewal and reception party later in September. It was a beautiful, fun wedding day which we were so happy to attend and film for them. They did just a couple of things differently from their first ceremony being a vow renewal which was fun and thoughtful, see if you can spot them!
We were blessed to be a small part of Mary and Jame’s marriage story. One that began with years of friendship ultimately culminating in a wedding day. James and Mary were reminded by the best man in his speech and we agree that friendship in marriage is so important and that having a successful marriage depends on building and nurturing that friendship. I think these two will have no trouble with that! Just watching them it’s easy to see the pure joy they have being together and see how their friendship flows effortlessly.
Our team Zarah & Sam began the day with James and Mary at the Basilica bright and early for the 9am ceremony time slot. Outside the Basilica doors Mary and her father had their first look before he walked her down the isle to see James! It was a beautiful ceremony followed by a brunch style reception at the recently renovated Carnegie library events center in South Bend.

What a lovely day in South Bend for Molly and Jake’s Wedding! We were absolutely stunned by the beauty of this summer wedding at St. Joseph Catholic Church and The Gillespie Center, on the campus of St. Mary’s College in South Bend, Ind. Having a beautiful wedding day is a major win, but Molly & Jake as the bride and groom 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. The groom’s reaction says it all as he was so excited to see Molly for the first time that day during their first look.
During the pandemic there were some serious questions about how many guests would even be able to attend the wedding. When asked if they wanted to cancel and move the wedding date Molly and Jake both said a resounding NO!! We’re very grateful to have recorded this amazing wedding for two very persistent and courageous people, along with their amazing friends and family. 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!

Rosemary and Greg hosted their fairytale wedding day at the University of Notre Dame where they both attended school. The day began with Rosemary getting ready fine tuning all the details hair, make up etc. Rosemary and her ladies had an awesome chill attitude and enjoyed all the moments and laughs with the cameras rolling. After Rosemary’s first look with her dad we scuttled over to the Basilica to get some coverage of the main man (and groom) Greg and prep for the ceremony. There wasn’t much time to get shots in the Basilica due to the current restrictions in place but we work at the Basilica often and have an efficient routine to get ready there so we did our best and got great looks with Greg! As Greg and Rosemary met one another singing in the choir at ND they wanted to make a nod to that by singing a song on campus with other member of their wedding party and friends who were also in choir. They sang at the Grotto on campus and we were right there to record it all. It was a beautiful moment and a perfect, emotive score to begin their film with. So kudos to the couple for trying something a bit different on their wedding day and for doing a beautiful job with it!! Check out their short film.
