White winter wedding in December at Union Station in Indianapolis. Good friends we met and enjoy working with. Romantic storybook appeal.

Picture perfect Union Station wedding for Joe and Natasha | Indianapolis, IN

the planning

Wow, a picture perfect union station wedding for the perfect couple! We got to know Joe and Natasha through our friends Amanda and Greg. We filmed for Amanda & Greg several years ago and then for Greg’s sister and her husband. Come to find out Joe works with Greg, so it was great to make the circle of friends larger!

When I met Joe and Natasha a year before their wedding at a Starbucks in Castleton Square it didn’t take long to realize they have a beautiful chemistry. And just hearing about their wedding day plans I could tell it would amazing. Natasha is a wedding planner professionally. She wasn’t overbearing at all as you might think a planner/bride would be. She naturally had a clear vision for what her day and what it would look like. And Joe bless him wasn’t slack he was right there with her working hard on the planning! When they told me their wedding was at one of my all time favorite venues Union Station – I seriously couldn’t wait to secure the date for them.

the wedding day

We were present to film starting with the wedding party getting ready at the nearby Omni Hotel. Once ready Natasha & Joe had their first look then all the bridesmaids and groomsmen piled in the party bus. We took video downtown at monument circle and the nearby Memorial Park. Both were beautiful locations. We filmed beautiful candid’s and formals alongside Sami of Sami Renee Photography who was great as ever. After the first look and pictures we headed back to Union Station for the entire day. The ceremony was beautiful and included music by a 4 piece ensemble. Surrounded by friends and family Joe and Natasha said their vows, exchanged rings, kissed and we got their party started! Cocktails were in the adjoining room while the staff at Union Station flipped the ballroom to reveal a beautiful set up. After followed dinner, speeches, cake cutting, toasts, and of course dancing! It was an evening and event to remember!

The location

With their wedding being in December it had romantic Christmas wedding vibe built in. The weather was nice with perfect light for cinematography. Add to that the storybook appeal of the historic Union Station. Did I mention we love Union Station? There aren’t many places like it. Beautiful candles and warm gold light inside gave the grand hall at Historic Union Station it’s signature guided age glow. All this to say Natasha and Joe had a very epic, very beautiful Indianapolis wedding day. Working with these two was an absolute joy! We wish them all best!

Laura + Glenn // Wedding at Industry 828 in Indianapolis, Ind.

To say Laura & Glenn’s Wedding was exceptional would be an understatement. Weddings as lovely usually don’t come easy but Laura and Glenn’s wedding seemed like an easy composite of their favorite things. All grounded by love, great design, and lots fun on Laura and Glenn’s part!

Their day, ceremony and reception all took place at Industry 828 Events Center in the historic Industrial center of Indianapolis, Ind. The venue provided plenty of space for their guests with lots of exposed brick and plenty of window light for the getting ready process. Industry also comes with easy access to the city of Indy for pictures and video.

If you watch Laura and Glenn interact for more than a few minutes you realize the ease with which they communicate, you also recognize the trust between them and an easy enjoyment of being together. This all came out so well during video and photos on their wedding day. But don’t take my word for it check out their film and see all the moments that create the tapestry of their love story!!

 

 

Alicia & Paul’s Wedding at The Mill Top in Noblesville, IN

It was a pleasure getting to know Alicia and Paul during our pre-planning process and working with them on their wedding day. The day was a wonderful expression of their love and shared experiences. From their personal vows to the gigantic apple fritter wedding cake (from their favorite bakery) these personal touches really helped make the day special. We can’t fail to mention, Paul being a talented composer wrote and recorded the song you’ll hear for Alicia. Amazing yes?

Nick & Jessica – Wedding at the Hilton South Bend, Ind.

Nick and Jessica had a fantastic day in Northern Indiana. Their ceremony was at Christ the King Church in South Bend with photos at St. Mary’s College campus and the reception following at the nearby Hilton Garden Inn. A couple times during the day it started sprinkling and we’d all run for cover but the rain always cleared allowing us enough time for beautiful sunny/rainy cinematography. We had a great time working with Nick and Jessica and Joan of Josephiney Photography. Many Congrats!
