Wow, what a wedding and what a couple! We got to know Joe and Natasha through friends we filmed for nearly five years ago, Amanda & Greg. It was great to see Amanda and Greg and their growing family at the event. They were both standing up in the wedding and their little boy was a ring bearer!
I met Joe and Natasha almost a year before their wedding at a Starbucks in Castleton Square. It didn’t take long to realize they had a beautiful chemistry together and their wedding day would just as lovely. Natasha had a clear vision for what her day would be and I could tell Joe was on the ball with her during the planning! Being in December their wedding had that Christmas in winter feel by incorporating lots of whites plus candles and warm tones which gave the grand hall at Historic Union Station a gorgeous glow. Working with these two was an absolute joy! We wish them all best!

Emily and Mark had an absolutely beautiful wedding day at The Basilica of the Sacred Heart and the Morris Inn, two of our favorite wedding venues. I thought the speech by Emily’s father shared at the reception was especially moving. He said “Emily has always been a perfectionist. This is evident in all aspects of her life from her gymnastics to even packing a suitcase.. so it’s no surprise to me she picked Mark.” What a great compliment to them both! It was a joy sharing the day with Mark and Emily, laughing with them and seeing them enjoy the whole event. Check out their feature film!

Katie and Augie took a stress free and fun approach to their wedding. They made the day more about each other and their families and friends than anything else. One highlight of the day was the notes they read to each other on camera, which described their feelings in a beautiful way. Katie’s father also had some wonderful words for the couple included in this trailer. Katie and Augie can hopefully look back on this film years later and be reminded of the amazing love they share. Our best to the new couple!
As a wedding professional I often come across cool wedding ideas. Here’s a few that can bring some unique flavor to your wedding reception.
-Silhouette cutter. These people take little pieces of black paper and use small scissors to cut silhouettes of the guests, which they mount on a card for them and let them take home. Sounds cool! Indiana silhouette artists.
-Polaroid camera guest/photo book. You have attendants take pictures of the guests as they arrive, the guests write a message on it when its developed. When done the guests can put the pictures in your album. As this can be a slow process you may want a couple attendants taking pictures and a large enough table to let them develop on.
-A snow cone stand or frozen drink machine. Sounds awesome to me! I’ve even witnessed hotdog stands set up outside the reception for departing guests on several occasions. Pretty cool idea however I’d say a drink or food stand set up inside the reception area would get a lot more attention.
-Last on my so called list but not least. The famous Photo booth. This is always fun and of course gives people something to take home for a memento.
