Nothing better than to marry your best friend. A confident Bride and groom in Notre Dame and Morris Park wedding full of love, hope and joy.

jennifer and patrick married | a Notre Dame and Morris Park CC wedding

There’s not a better match than to marry your best friend. This is one key sentiment that Patrick and Jennifer expressed to one another on their wedding day. That they found and married their best friend in the other.

There’s also not much better than a joyful bride on her wedding day. Fully happy and confident with the choice she has made! And also full of hope and excitement for the future that awaits her and her spouse. This got me thinking why is it that a bride should feel this way? I think it says a lot about the partner she chose. He’s made her feel confident in his love for her, and is a great compliment to her. Additionally she knows he will cherish and protect her all of their days. It’s evident that Patrick has the same joy in marrying Jennifer. And why is that? It must also come from his confidence in choosing the right partner. He knows in Jennifer he has found that one who will love and cherish him all his days.

Their wedding day was lovely. From getting ready at the Embassy Suites to the ceremony at The Basilica and the reception at Morris Park Country Club it was a day full of much beauty, joy and love. Our best to the new Mr. and Mrs Loughery. Thank you Patrick and Jennifer for choosing us to tell your story. We’re so glad you could marry your best friend and we’re excited for what your future holds!

Katie and Tony hosted their wedding at St. Alphonsus Church in Zionsville and the reception at The Bluffs at Conner Prairie

The Bluffs at Conner Prairie wedding | Katie & tony

Katie and Tony had a beautiful August wedding surrounded by friends and family at The Bluffs at Conner Prairie.

This couple had a blast and were awesome to film with! I wasn’t personally available for their date but fortunately it worked to have our team film for them and I was able to do the editing. Katie later gave a special shout out to our videographer Zarah for being the hype girl she didn’t know she needed. Although a little hype is fun for pictures and video I don’t think they really needed it much. Just being themselves and letting their personalities shine through was more than enough. Their genuineness and affection for one another and their guests came through beautifully.

Katie and Tony hosted their wedding at St. Alphonsus Church in Zionsville and the reception at The Bluffs at Conner Prairie. If you haven’t heard of it the Bluffs is a newish venue. It’s the outcome of a partnership between Ritz Charles and Conner Prairie to renovate the historic Eli Lilly Chinese house plus build a new venue in the woods – the Bluffs making both available for special events. It’s interesting that they didn’t create a separate social media pages for the venues. I think they would benefit from doing that because they’re really cool spots. If you’re looking for more pictures of the space social media for the Bluffs is currently under @ritzcharles for Instagram & Facebook. Thanks to our team Zarah & Sam for filming!

triumph over adversity in a goofy wedding day. Vow renewal in Chesterton Indiana at Trinity Banquet Hall

Molly and Adam’s vowel renewal | Married in Chesterton, IN

Molly and Adam’s vow renewal wedding was another story of triumph over adversity in the midst of a very goofy, disruptive wedding season. Molly and Adam were married in a scaled back ceremony on their original wedding day in May. We attended their second celebration including their vow renewal and reception at Trinity Banquet Hall later in September. It was a beautiful, fun wedding day which turned out perfectly. We had a great time filming alongside Soul Creations Photography, real professionals at their craft. Molly and Adam did just a couple of things differently with their ceremony being a vow renewal which was fun. See if you can spot them!

high school sweethearts married. Wedding plans, venue, locations and vendors changed last minute. shutdown and rescheduled wedding day.

Erica & Greg | High school sweethearts married! | The University of Notre Dame

The wait

It’s hard to believe but Erica and Greg were high school sweethearts married after some nine years dating! They met in high school, attended Notre Dame together, graduated and began their careers together. All while maintaining a healthy relationship and deferring marriage until the time was right. Wow, that’s incredible!

I can’t imagine waiting 9 years to get married but due to shutdowns they had to wait even longer than planned. Their wedding was planned for spring and got postponed to late summer. fortunately we were free on their new date and could still film for them. Then just two weeks before their new wedding date the venue they were planning to host at had a big scare and mandatory lockdown go in effect. This left their wedding venue and guest hotel shuttered just two weeks prior to the event. Whelp, what terrible timing! But they didn’t give up and went to work on planning for the 3rd time!

The wedding

With only 8 days to go before the wedding Erica’s mother aka (rockstar) wedding planner went into high gear searching out and booking a new venue. This included updates with vendors. Changing the lighting, food service, flowers and room design. Not to mention updating all the guests to accommodations! The university event professionals were so gracious and so helpful as always through it all. They assisted with free transportation and other services to help facilitate Erica and Greg’s location switch.

It was all such a big and challenging process Erica’s dad got emotional during his speech thanking the vendors. To which he quipped he’s probably the first fob to cry while thanking the vendor teams 🙂 Long story short Erica and Greg were able to have their day and hosted a really breathtaking wedding at Gillespie conference center. If you’re looking at the venue check out this other great film we did there for Molly & Jake!

We couldn’t have been more happy to be there for Erica & Greg to see their day unfold. It was a privilege to create a beautiful film to describe their wedding day. Congrats to you Erica and Greg you’ve come along way, from high school sweethearts to married professionals. We celebrate you guys!
