Allison and Kyle’s epic wedding celebration | filmed at The Gillespie

Let’s Party!

When I first talked to Kyle about filming his and Allison’s wedding he said their friends and family love to party and dance when they get together. He was correct. They did have an epic wedding celebration which was awesome to capture for them on film.

Bride Prep

We got started filming the day with Allison at the Nicholas j salon on Eddy street. Always a great choice for brides in the South Bend, Notre Dame area. Following from that we filmed with Kyle, Allison and friends at their hotel capturing all the special details. Rings, shoes dress and more. Allison was super excited to get into the dress as any bride should be.. so when the dress did go on it was time for some celebratory dance moves, also caught on film:) The transformation was complete and it was time to show it off to the special men in her life!

Groom Prep

All this time Kyle was busy with the task of getting himself and his groomsmen all suited up. This involved some finesse to get the details just right. Fortunately Kyle had an ace up his sleeve. A groomsman his friends jokingly referred to as Men’s Wearhouse:) There’s several scenes where our star groomsman comes through folding pocket squares and adjusting cufflinks in a pinch. I’ll say it’s nice to have a guy in the group who gets it and can help his bros out. I’m sure Kyle would agree. But my favorite scene from the guys getting ready is Kyle lovingly adjusting his son’s shirt and jacket getting him all ready for day. What a great dad.

Married at Last

After all the preps there were emotional first looks for Allison with her dad, her son and of course Kyle. Following was a short but beautiful outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing all at the Gillespie Conference Center. All said we had a magical day filming the event. Special thanks to Angie from Belle Behind the Ball for planning & coordinating the event and contacting us on behalf of her friends Kyle and Allison.

Videographers for Joshua & McKenzey’s Swan Lake Resort Wedding

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!
