Lauren and Jordan truly are a match made in heaven! But poor Jordan he had to ask Lauren out three times! Fortunately, on the last time she accepted his invitation. Persistence is key indeed. Lauren said she had seen the signs they were meant to be and although she was hesitant at first she knew right away that Jordan was the one for her.
We love love stories. Sometimes the path is very clear and a couple just knows like Lauren and Jordan did. Other times it’s not so clear and that confidence comes through testing and time. Either way when it’s meant to be it’s meant to be. And with Lauren and Jordan it’s easy to see it was meant to be.
the wedding day
We began the day filming at Lauren’s parents beautiful home in South Bend, IN. It was fantastic seeing all the Wade family again (since Andrea and Garrett’s wedding) and getting covered in Champagne during the girls impromptu champagne toast wasn’t too bad either. After Jordan and his friends finished getting ready at nearby at the Aloft hotel. We witnessed a beautiful first look outdoors by the pool and sped off to the ceremony! Lauren and Jordan incorporated their faith into their ceremony with communion and a cord braiding moment. Said their wedding vows, kissed and that was that. It was reception time at the Palais Royale and the party went down. We were so fortunate to witness this match made in heaven!
Whether it’s easy or difficult I believe all couples will face challenging times in their courtship when they must dig deep and recon with the prospect they are choosing a partner for life. That’s pretty stressful! So kudos to all our amazing engaged and married couples who stuck it out through the courtship, engagement, wedding planning and marriage process. Your dedication to one another, faith and love is inspiring. If you’re reading this and facing uncertainty or indecision I would encourage you to look to God for help!

It was a pleasure to create one of the sweetest wedding films for one of the sweetest couples Jacob and Annie! They came to us through another wonderful couple we filmed for years ago Sarah & Daniel. Throughout Jacob and Annie’s wedding day everyone around them were just so happy for them. It may have been a bit embarrassing but whenever they showed affection the whole party would start cheering and egging them on.
Jacob’s sister Mckenzie told a really sweet story about them at their reception. On a family vacation together Mckenzie and her sister observed the couple sitting on a dock overlooking a lake at sunset. According to her it was like a moment you see in the movies. She said and I quote “they were looking at one another kinda bashful then looking again doing that whole in love thing.” McKenzie then turned to her sister and said “if they don’t get married then there is no hope for anyone else!” Lol, as it turns out there is hope for the rest of us. It was at that exact same time Jacob and Annie were thinking the same thing. It was at that was the moment they knew they wanted to be married.
Isn’t that cool? It’s more than a coincidence but destiny. Jacob’s two sisters were witness to a life changing moment for their brother and Annie. Not only were they witnesses but they were taking part by thinking the same thing at the same time. So another thing we noticed is Jacob and Annie are not only one of the sweetest couples but a lot of fun! We had a blast filming portraits of them and their wedding party. It was a cold wintery day in December but we all braved the weather. Soul Creations wedding photography and I got great results filming their candid session. This because Jacob, Annie, us and wedding party forgot the cold and just had a great time! The results were stunning, fun beautiful shots to help create one of the sweetest wedding films.
We wrapped up the day with dinner, speeches and dancing. Then sent them on their way in a surprise getaway near the end of the reception. Our best to the new Mr. and Mrs Bohannon! Keep showing us a wonderful example of love. Continue to embody the beauty of love and life. Stay true to one another and keep the flame of your affection alive. And to Jacob’s sister. There is hope for all of us!
I love to hear a good love story, don’t you? After all, that is why we do what we do here at Vibrant. Cassidy and Bryon are blessed to have a timeless love story to tell their children someday. During the ceremony the minister did a beautiful job of telling their story and Bryon’s brother added more detail during his speech at the reception. Naturally, I tried to include as much of their story as I could in their feature film because their story is what made their union. Cassidy met Bryon while interning at his church in his hometown of Almo, Michigan. After they struck up a friendship and got to know one another Bryon wanted to ask Cassidy out but assumed she had already placed him in the dreaded friend zone! It wasn’t until Bryon’s brother and another influential person (who the minister jokingly referred to as “a prophet”) in his life encouraged him to just go ahead and ask her out. So he did. And of course the rest was history.
The wedding Film
This is where we come in. Bryon and Cassidy asked us to capture their wedding that took place at Cassidy’s home church Church at the Crossing in Indianapolis. They hosted family and friends during their reception at the beautiful Iron + Ember in Carmel. We had awesome weather for filming outdoors given it was in November. Having a fall wedding can be a risk but it was well worth it. There were still some colorful leaves on the trees and we had an incredibly warm day which made filming portraits and cocktails outdoors a delight.
We never grow tired of the opportunity to capture someone’s special day. Bryon and Cassidy – thank you for making our jobs easy! We wish you the best knowing your best is yet to come — cheers!
What a lovely South Bend wedding for Molly and Jake! We were absolutely stunned by the beauty of this summer wedding at St. Joseph Catholic Church and The Gillespie Center, in South Bend, Indiana. Having a beautiful wedding day is a major win, but Molly & Jake as the bride and groom really 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. Jake’s reaction during the first looks said it all as he was so excited to see Molly for the first time that day.
According to Molly’s mother. Because of the pandemic there were some serious questions about how many guests would even be able to attend the wedding. After downsizing the guest list several times the frustration no doubt was daunting. So when Molly’s mother asked if they wanted to cancel and move the wedding date Molly and Jake both said a resounding NO!! And as amazing as their day was we’re very glad they did. We’re very grateful to have recorded this beautiful wedding for two very persistent and courageous people. And we’re happy they can share their video with their friends and family who weren’t able to attend. 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!
