What time is it? Game time. That was the feeling we got when walking onto the scene at Black Iris Estate for Winston and Shelley’s Wedding. Everything was picture perfect and went along like clockwork from the get go. Winston and Shelley and their party were in high spirits and ready to party! If ever there was an expressive couple it was Winston and Shelley. They wrote each other love letters. Wrote each other beautiful personal vows, laughed out loud whenever they had the opportunity and made the best of every single moment all day long. Our best to the happy couple!
As Jessica’s father eloquently stated in his speech, planning a wedding is like preparing for a new baby. There’s lots of anticipation, planning, hard work, stress, some anxiety, and in the end you get to welcome a new member into the family! So our warmest congratulations to Jessica, Austin and their families on their brand new bundle of joy via a new marriage!
Our team Zarah, Sam and myself had a great time hanging out and filming for Jessica and Austin. The entire bridal party, especially the couple, were so great to work with. They really cared about our role as videographers and made every effort to help us be successful in our job.
We started the day with getting ready at The Oliver Inn in South Bend. The ceremony was at the Basilica at Notre Dame. This is truly one of our favorite places to film! You can’t go wrong with the gorgeous architecture and stain glass windows. Following the ceremony we had a blast doing videography on the ND football field, filming with the very talented Katie and Chris from Whitcomb Photography. For the reception Lori Kimmel and her team took excellent care of everyone at The Homestead 1835.
Thank you again to Jessica and Austin and their families for letting us capture their beautiful wedding on film! We hope you enjoy the short trailer film.
It was a pleasure getting to know Alicia and Paul during our pre-planning process and working with them on their wedding day. The day was a wonderful expression of their love and shared experiences. From their personal vows to the gigantic apple fritter wedding cake (from their favorite bakery) these personal touches really helped make the day special. We can’t fail to mention, Paul being a talented composer wrote and recorded the song you’ll hear for Alicia. Amazing yes?

I realized when writing this post that Swan Lake Resort was the site of our first official wedding shoot as Vibe Video Productions 10 years ago to the month! Although we’ve been back a couple of times since it seems fitting that after 10 successful years in business we returned to where it all began!
McKenzey and Josh were such a joy to work for. There’s a certain light in their eyes and ease of interacting with one another that’s magical. But don’t take my word for it check out their short trailer and see for yourself. Thanks to Zarah, Sam & David for filming the day. Our best to the new couple!
