It was a pleasure to create one of the sweetest wedding films for one of the sweetest couples Jacob and Annie! They came to us through another wonderful couple we filmed for years ago Sarah & Daniel. Throughout Jacob and Annie’s wedding day everyone around them were just so happy for them. It may have been a bit embarrassing but whenever they showed affection the whole party would start cheering and egging them on.
Jacob’s sister Mckenzie told a really sweet story about them at their reception. On a family vacation together Mckenzie and her sister observed the couple sitting on a dock overlooking a lake at sunset. According to her it was like a moment you see in the movies. She said and I quote “they were looking at one another kinda bashful then looking again doing that whole in love thing.” McKenzie then turned to her sister and said “if they don’t get married then there is no hope for anyone else!” Lol, as it turns out there is hope for the rest of us. It was at that exact same time Jacob and Annie were thinking the same thing. It was at that was the moment they knew they wanted to be married.
Isn’t that cool? It’s more than a coincidence but destiny. Jacob’s two sisters were witness to a life changing moment for their brother and Annie. Not only were they witnesses but they were taking part by thinking the same thing at the same time. So another thing we noticed is Jacob and Annie are not only one of the sweetest couples but a lot of fun! We had a blast filming portraits of them and their wedding party. It was a cold wintery day in December but we all braved the weather. Soul Creations wedding photography and I got great results filming their candid session. This because Jacob, Annie, us and wedding party forgot the cold and just had a great time! The results were stunning, fun beautiful shots to help create one of the sweetest wedding films.
We wrapped up the day with dinner, speeches and dancing. Then sent them on their way in a surprise getaway near the end of the reception. Our best to the new Mr. and Mrs Bohannon! Keep showing us a wonderful example of love. Continue to embody the beauty of love and life. Stay true to one another and keep the flame of your affection alive. And to Jacob’s sister. There is hope for all of us!
Places matter to us as we move through the journey of life. It’s amazing how places can shape who we are and leave such an impact on our memory. I think the biggest reason for this is because of the people we encounter in those places. Sarah and Justin met on the campus of Notre Dame while they both attended undergrad together, got engaged on campus and fittingly enough said “I do” on the same campus some 6 and half years after first meeting! So to say the university has special place in their hearts and life is by far understatement!
From the getting ready at Morris Inn to the ceremony at the Basilica and following reception at Dahnke Ballroom. It was a day filled with beauty and so much joy. I wish many years of life, love and happiness for Sarah and Justin together!!
Emily and Mark had an absolutely beautiful wedding day at The Basilica of the Sacred Heart and the Morris Inn, two of our favorite wedding venues. I thought the speech by Emily’s father shared at the reception was especially moving. He said “Emily has always been a perfectionist. This is evident in all aspects of her life from her gymnastics to even packing a suitcase.. so it’s no surprise to me she picked Mark.” What a great compliment to them both! It was a joy sharing the day with Mark and Emily, laughing with them and seeing them enjoy the whole event. Check out their feature film!
Here at Vibrant Productions we take pride in discovering the unique characteristics of every couple who commission us and highlighting this in their film. For Jessie and Chris I believe it’s their ability to have fun and to attract people to themselves. From our experience we could tell they have many fun and genuine friends. So many in fact they filled the Basilica at Notre Dame all the way to the back rows and jam packed the dance floor at Palais Royal. Not to mention the fun we had filming their super sized wedding party with Jessica Strickland Photography on the field at Notre Dame Stadium. So here’s to Jessie and Chris, two awesome fellow Fighting Irish fans. Cheers!
