A great celebration

When I first spoke with Steve he laid out his vision for their wedding very articulately. It was to be a great wedding celebration of his and Meredith’s love and life together so far and their future. Celebration being a key word for them. I thought this made a lot of sense. With a wedding we tend to look toward the future naturally as it’s a beginning but we should remember we’re also celebrating the past. People that helped raise us, friends and experiences that helped shape us. Even the time, memories and accomplishments made together as a couple. Some couples have more experience together than others based on the length of their engagement and courtship. I’ve filmed for couples who met literally a few months before the day and those who have been dating for 9 years or more!

Meredith and Steve are a couple who had a rich history together already. They’ve been dating several years, have a son together and naturally wanted to make him a big part of their day. What was originally planned to be a big city wedding in Chicago because of stifling covid restrictions became a wedding in the countryside of Plymouth, IN at Swan Lake Resort. And it was great. Swan Lake is a premiere wedding resort location. We’ve enjoyed filming there several times before and actually filmed our first ever wedding film there as a company. The resort is located on a golf course, has lodging on site including some rustic log cabins as well as traditional hotel rooms. The couple took advantage of both with Steve staying in the hotel and Meredith in a cabin. Steve and Meredith chose to have their ceremony in a nearby church and hosted the reception at Swan Lake.

The wedding

It was a beautiful event full of incredible speeches and moments. Meredith and Steve were genuinely wonderful to work with throughout the process. They were very intentional and made everyone feel welcome and appreciated on the day. Our best to them and their family. May they make many new memories and celebrate many more life milestones together. Thanks Jacob and Mary Kate for filming the day!

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!
