Melanie & AJ’s micro wedding | filmed in Indianapolis, IN

A micro wedding, mini wedding or minimony. Call it what you will the idea is pretty cool. It was a nice alternative for Melanie and Aj, the other option being to postpone their wedding day. Going mini meant they could still have the wedding ceremony of their dreams with their closest friends and family in attendance. They could plan it, live it, photograph it with Conforti Photo and of course Vibrant Productions to film it! And they could still host a big party later.

benefits of going mini

There are several benefits to a scaled back micro wedding. Who wants to narrow their guest list down to 30 or 40? Not many couples but it does mean a more intimate group. There’s a different atmosphere in a room of 40 than a room of 300. Fewer guests may mean more flexibility and there’s less pressure to impress extended family and social circles. Going micro shouldn’t necessarily mean going cheap. I like the way Melanie and AJ didn’t skimp on having the things they wanted. They had all the details of their choosing and it showed. Of course, mini weddings can also be a great money saver as many vendors and venues offer special rates for those asking. For example we offered them a modified ceremony only plan with half the usual coverage time and a shortened highlight film.

done right!

The day was all about Melanie and AJ and they enjoyed every minute together. There was lots of quality time spent and wonderful memories made. They incorporated a close friend to preside over the ceremony and included their two dogs in the procession. The weather cooperated and we were able to get some amazing footage with them outdoors. Their locations were The Hilton Garden Inn for prep and ceremony at The Sanctuary on Penn in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Stephanie & Michael’s Wedding | Videography at The Columbia Club in Indy

It was a beautiful winter wedding day for Stephanie and Michael. As we did videography we noticed the mood was almost always whimsical and fun. The light was soft and cool, perfect for pics and video. Stephanie said she always dreamed of a downtown Indianapolis wedding in the evening and her dream became a beautiful reality. Partly due to Indy Gigz’s excellent design work and the Columbia Club’s perfect event accommodations the wedding was a beautiful affair. The Columbia Club looked magical with the christmas lights from the Circle Monument peeking through the windows and a warm fire burning in the hearth during their ceremony. Nothing quite like it! Our best to Stephanie and Michael in their future together!
