It was a beautiful September day for JoAnna and Brian’s Wedding celebration at Tippecanoe Place Restaurant in South Bend, IN. Sometimes magic really strikes between the location, planning, weather and execution and it did this time in spades! I love how JoAnna and Brian’s wedding although elegant and refined had an very relaxed feel. Cheers to Belle Behind the Ball for excellent planning and double cheers to JoAnna and Brian for saying I do!
Excitement was in the air as we filmed Katie and Chris getting ready at their hotel. The ladies were enjoying their starbucks drinks and getting made up while the guys were having a beer to relax and looking good in their tuxes. Things went into full gear as the wedding party arrived at the Mustard Seed! Katie had an emotional first look with her dad which we were present to record and guests began to filter in. Although we got a little unexpected rain and had to move the ceremony inside it was no problem as the Mustard Seed is well suited to have an indoor or outdoor ceremony and have it look great either way! Take a look at this sneak peak from Katie and Chris’s film!

Becky and Dan had a beautiful wedding day as you can clearly see by watching the trailer. They were fully involved making the most of every special moment and we were right there to capture those moments for them!
The day was a buzz of activity starting with Dan and his groomsmen at the JW Marriot and Becky and her ladies getting ready at Becky’s house. The ceremony was at St. Pius X with the reception downtown at the JW. We got some amazing scenes with Dan and Becky posing for pics and video on the circle downtown. Becky and her crew did an awesome job with the reception ballroom creating lots of eye candy for their guests.
Dan, Becky and their cat Lola are off to a great start and we wish them the best!

Maybe it was the beautiful light or amazing locations but Ashley and Kyle just seemed to be impossible to get a bad shot of! We started the day filming with Ashley at the Omni Hotel downtown and then proceeded to film Kyle and his groomsmen hanging out and getting ready at the Indianapolis Public Library. Ashley and Kyle had a beautiful first look outside in the library garden we then accompanied them on a hike to the war memorial for an amazing candid photo session. I have to hand it to Ashley for walking over a mile with heels on. She was one tough bride! We finished the day with their awesome ceremony and reception at IPL.
Our best to the happy couple!
