A Champagne spray to start the wedding day! Notre Dame, Indiana

When I first arrived to the air bnb Shannon and her ladies were at Shannon was readying for the champagne spray and toast. I grabbed my camera jumped out of the car and yelled wait for me! I’m glad I was there to catch it as it was an awesome scene to begin the day with.

After cleaning any excess champagne off of their hands Shannon and the bridesmaids began getting ready as we went into filming the details! Shannon’s mother helped her into the dress and it was time for the big reveal. Katie from OMG photography did a great job positioning the bridesmaids at the bottom of the stairs while Shannon walked down to them. All the ladies swooned over seeing her in the dress the first time. It was definitely a highlight of the morning!

Meanwhile Christopher was getting prepped and hanging at the Morris Inn on campus with his guys. He graciously read the letter Shannon had wrote him on camera as Shannon had done with his letter earlier. I always encourage couples to write and read a note from one another if they’re comfortable doing so. It’s a great way to hear in their own words how they feel. Shannon and Christopher’s notes were very sweet.

After all the prep Christopher took one last stroll as a single man along with his guys across the quad over to the Basilica for the wedding mass. Shannon arrived shortly thereafter and was soon coming through those beautiful medieval double doors. All eyes fixed on her as she made her way down that long basilica isle to the man of her dreams.

The reception was on campus at Downes Ballroom overlooking the football stadium. There was speeches, dinner, dancing and a surprise video appearance from the former women’s basketball coach Muffet McGraw! For all family and friends who couldn’t join Shannon and Christopher asked us to provide live streaming of the reception. It was a really thoughtful way to include everyone they cared about and really showed their character. Our best to the newlyweds!

Stephanie & Michael’s Wedding | Videography at The Columbia Club in Indy

It was a beautiful winter wedding day for Stephanie and Michael. As we did videography we noticed the mood was almost always whimsical and fun. The light was soft and cool, perfect for pics and video. Stephanie said she always dreamed of a downtown Indianapolis wedding in the evening and her dream became a beautiful reality. Partly due to Indy Gigz’s excellent design work and the Columbia Club’s perfect event accommodations the wedding was a beautiful affair. The Columbia Club looked magical with the christmas lights from the Circle Monument peeking through the windows and a warm fire burning in the hearth during their ceremony. Nothing quite like it! Our best to Stephanie and Michael in their future together!

Trailer – Danielle & Nate’s wedding at the Indiana Statehouse

It’s really cool to film multiple weddings for the same family and that happened for us this year with Nate & his sister Brittany. The funny thing is Nate looked me up online and saw his sisters film trailer only then realizing we did his sisters video. He was actually doing military service at the time and couldn’t attend the wedding so had no idea we were there. Long story short we ended up filming his and Danielle’s wedding in December and really enjoyed working with them as well!

First we captured Nate and his groomsmen at the Omni Hotel doing a pre ceremony tequila toast which has come to be a tradition among his friends. Then we took a short hop over to where Dani and her friends were getting ready at the Statehouse and got some great shots of them. Of course it was then go time for the ceremony and a very cool paper airplane sendoff – which was appropriate as Nate’s in the air force! Best of luck to the couple. Take a second and enjoy their video!
