Vows, Rings, Dresses and Flowers. These are some of the elements that make up a wedding day. There of course are many many more details for your average bride and groom to consider and this is why the words “wedding planning” sometimes bring with them some level of stress! But the most crucial element and one that shouldn’t bring too much stress I believe is the love that binds. Without that love all the other elements seem pretty pointless don’t they? Although every detail of Matt and Lauren’s day was skillfully accounted for resulting in a beautiful ceremony and reception at the Omni their love for one another seemed to shine the brightest! From tears when they saw each other for the first time to the kindness they showed one another throughout the day they clearly made one another the priority. So engaged couples when you’re working hard on your wedding lists and start to get some stress don’t forget to take some time to keep your relationship healthy because that’s the key to your best day!

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!

As Jessica’s father eloquently stated in his speech, planning a wedding is like preparing for a new baby. There’s lots of anticipation, planning, hard work, stress, some anxiety, and in the end you get to welcome a new member into the family! So our warmest congratulations to Jessica, Austin and their families on their brand new bundle of joy via a new marriage!
Our team Zarah, Sam and myself had a great time hanging out and filming for Jessica and Austin. The entire bridal party, especially the couple, were so great to work with. They really cared about our role as videographers and made every effort to help us be successful in our job.
We started the day with getting ready at The Oliver Inn in South Bend. The ceremony was at the Basilica at Notre Dame. This is truly one of our favorite places to film! You can’t go wrong with the gorgeous architecture and stain glass windows. Following the ceremony we had a blast doing videography on the ND football field, filming with the very talented Katie and Chris from Whitcomb Photography. For the reception Lori Kimmel and her team took excellent care of everyone at The Homestead 1835.
Thank you again to Jessica and Austin and their families for letting us capture their beautiful wedding on film! We hope you enjoy the short trailer film.
Abbie and Scott are such a sweet and handsome couple, and their wedding was full of beauty. Those attributes paired with the excellent work of our talented videographers Rachel and Zarah was a winning combination! I think you’ll agree when you watch their film. Everything about their day was beautiful – from getting ready at The Conrad hotel in Indy, to the candid photo session with Tracy and Troy, and the amazing natural light that filled the Skyline Club during the ceremony and reception. Our best to the happy couple!
