Wow, what a day for Shannon and Kellen! We arrived to busy wedding party preparations at the Morris Inn and got right to work capturing the bride and groom getting suited up! It wasn’t long before the makeup was done, the tux and dress were on, Kellen was off to the Basilica and Shannon went to see her father for the first time that morning. And what a beautiful moment that was. Seeing her father’s joy for his daughter was really special. The whole day was beautiful and everything fell right into place. Enough from me about the day, see for yourself!

It’s not all the time you meet a couple who are as likable as John and Gina. They’re both very genuine, good hearted people. These characteristics which have no doubt served them well as individuals will surely make for a very successful marriage going forward.
The day got rolling with John, Gina and their party getting ready at the Doubletree Hotel in South Bend. John presented Gina with a beautiful pearl necklace and a surprise reveal of their honeymoon destination. Gina presented John with a beautiful pocket watch and her mother and father with traditional hankies to dry their tears. Gina joked the Old wives’ tail goes “if you catch one of the Bride’s tears with the hanky, your crops will be grow and be watered.”
For the ceremonies Gina and John said their vows in the Basilica and partied afterward at the beautiful Palais Royale.
We wish Gina and John the best that life has to offer!

I was happy to produce a promotional video for our friends at Belle Behind the Ball recently. They’re a busy social event planning company located in South Bend, Indiana. They wanted a short promo video for their new website to help visitors get a better impression of their brand identity and make their site experience more personal.
We did a short interview of Angie, the owner of Belle Behind the Ball, talking about herself, the company, and things that inspire her. We also recorded footage of day in the life scenes to show what Angie and her colleagues do as wedding event planners. The ladies at Belle did an awesome job and I think the video represents their brand very well!
It was a beautiful fall day for Megan and Jesse to be married. We enjoyed spending the day with them making video of their beautiful outdoor ceremony and vintage indoor barn reception. Megan and Jesse are such a nice couple, we felt right at home around them and just really enjoyed taking the whole day in through our cameras and our memories. Our best to the new couple!
