Erica and Greg had a bumpy road to their wedding day thanks to circumstances beyond their control. First off their wedding got postponed, fortunately for us we were free on their new date and could still film for them. After rescheduling their date the University had a mandatory lockdown go into effect and had to shut down their reception venue and hotel just two weeks prior to the event! The university event professionals were so gracious and so helpful as always with providing transportation and other free services to help facilitate their switch to a new venue format. However with only 8 days to go before the wedding Erica’s mother aka (rockstar) wedding planner went into high gear searching out and booking a new venue. Keep in mind this includes updates from vendors to change the lighting, food service, flowers and room dressing, not to mention updating all the guests to a new hotel! Long story short they were able to pull it all off and hosted a really breathtaking wedding. Funny story during the FOB speech Erica’s dad got emotional when thanking the vendors and quipped he’s probably the first dad ever to cry at a wedding while talking about the vendor team!
We couldn’t have been more happy to be there for them to see their day unfold and to create a beautiful film to describe their wedding day. Cheers to you Eric and Greg, we love you guys!
We were delighted to film Ken and Mami’s wedding reception at Morris Inn on the campus of Notre Dame. Ken and Mami were legally married in their country of Japan but wanted to have a special event at Notre Dame to honor their many friends and associates from the US. Ken attended Notre Dame and his grandfather lived in South Bend and began their family business there so it was a beautiful way for them to honor this heritage. Check out our short film of their reception!
Wow, did we love working with these two! And how fortunate we were to be apart of the day. Their wedding was a beautiful summer day with record high temps and equally scorching imagery!! Check out this short trailer first!
Getting ready was a blast at the Morris Inn with beautiful natural light moments filming the lovely bride and handsome groom. We soaked up all the fun along with their wedding party and talented photographers Katie & Chris Whitcomb who always arrange the activities and details to look the finest. Do I have to mention how great it is to have talented, experienced and helpful photographers for your event? Ok, let’s go ahead and show you the Trailer Film then if you have a few extra minutes go ahead and watch their Feature Film as well!
It was sweet to kick off the year with Catherine and Conor at their wedding in South Bend. The weather was cool and cloudy and the light was perfect but they didn’t need help from the amazing sunlight to look great. They’re a beautiful couple!
The reception was full of amazing speeches but one thing Catherine’s father said really moved the room. “What do Conor and I have in common? 37 years ago I was standing at the alter of the Basilica waiting for those two medieval doors to open and I saw a vision. I saw a vision of strength, grace, intelligence with a smile as wide as the Mississippi and a heart and soul that are stronger. And from that day to this nothin changed. Conor three hours ago you saw the exact same thing. And because that apple didn’t fall far from that tree we have a bond that will never be broken.”
