Andrew & Elizabeth Married like champions! | here come the eckert’s!

We enjoyed filming with Andrew and Elizabeth as they married like champions! From the moment I arrived and the ladies were dancing to the classic tune everlasting love, I knew it was going to be great. I think there was some pent up energy since the wedding had been delayed for over a year. Andrew and Elizabeth were married in a small civil ceremony in 2021 when they had to cancel their plans due to covid. They never gave up on their dream of a big Notre Dame wedding though and their persistence paid off! As the best man said in his speech Notre Dame has a history of winning and often takes three years of planning to pull off the championship. Or in their case three years to pull off the dream wedding!

The day began and ended on campus. We started filming at the Morris Inn, a short walk from the Basilica and ceremony site. Getting ready was really fun. Andrew showed us his jacket with special lining portraying the Dome and brought along his collection of ND football helmets to see. Of course the ladies were super pumped for Elizabeth and loved prepping with her. The ceremony was beautiful with a very full room of guests. And after the ceremony we filmed all around campus in the snow and cold! Kudos to the wedding party for braving that wind chill. Although we didn’t linger long outdoors we filmed beautiful scenes with the couple. All followed up by a picture perfect wedding reception with dances and speeches at the stadium in the beautiful Dahnke Ballroom. I think it’s safe to say Andrew and Elizabeth married like champions! Check out their short film!!

Brittany and William make a promise and say "I do" to one another in the wedding ceremony at the Basilica of Notre Dame University

Brittany & William say “I Do” | Notre Dame Wedding

The Day

It was a picture perfect Notre Dame wedding day in October where we were privileged to witness Brittany and William say “I do”. The weather was mild and the colors just starting to change offering some beautiful scenes on campus for filming. The weather, locations plus ceremony and reception events all flowed nicely for a seamless wedding day.

“I do”

I began Brittany and William’s film edit with them saying their vows to one another. I don’t typically start a film this way but it seemed appropriate them. I believe the crux of the wedding ceremony is making of a promise. Whether it takes 100 words or two words it’s the same result. Brittany and William waited a long time for their big day, overcame a cancellation like so many others in 2020 so it was extra special to get to that point. I know it meant the world to them to finally stand up on the alter of the Basilica and make their vows to one another in front of God, family and friends.

The Film

We created a full 10-12 minutes feature film highlights for them plus their ceremony and reception documentary films. Their feature film includes a little segment from everyone who had a toast or speech. Over the speech segments I placed scenes from pre to post ceremony including bride and groom getting ready. The father daughter first look. The ceremony. The photo session around campus. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. And of course all the fun reception events at Downes Club! I think my favorite part of the day was filming Williams reaction to seeing Brittany as she processed up the isle of the Basilica. Well done William and Brittany!
