Clear and crisp winter wedding | Julie & Ryan | Sycamore at Mallow Run

The Day

Julie and Ryan’s Sycamore at Mallow Run wedding was a beautiful way to start out the new year! It was great to start 2021 with a beautiful clear, crisp and sunny January day for them. Their reception event had to be downsized from 250 all the way down to 25! But no worry, they planned accordingly and made it awesome. They used an intimate fireside space in the venue to host the dinner and had all the guests sit around a single large table. Plus the bar was just a few steps from the dining room!

All this to say a micro wedding doesn’t have to feel small when it’s planned right. Even in a huge venue like the Sycamore, it’s all about adjusting and matching the space in the venue to fit the group. And when there’s a small group the staff can provide a better experience for those guests. That said this was a fun group, excited for the couple and the energy level was high!

This was our second time working with the family of the bride. The first was with Josh and Kelly Julie’s older sister and brother in law. It was special to be invited back to spend the day with this wonderful group again and get to know Ryan’s family as well.

THE TRAILER film!

To be continued…

Ryan and Julie are planning to host another large Sycamore at Mallow run wedding reception in January 2022. We have a full length feature film for them coming soon but it will have to wait till next January to premiere it publicly. Cheers to the new Mr. & Mrs!!

Beautiful Tabor Hill Winery wedding in Buchannon, MI. Wedding in winter outdoors for A & B. We worked with Burns Rentals and Special Events.

Tabor Hill Winery winter wedding | Buchanan, MI | Brandon & Amelia

Brandon and Amelia hosted their Tabor Hill Winery wedding winter event outdoors in November at Tabor Hill Winery in Buchanan, Michigan! It was a perfect day for a winter wedding with a little snow on the ground but clear skies and not too cool. Ok, so it’s a little unusual to host a wedding outdoors in November, in Michigan no less! I wouldn’t recommend it to the average bride but… if you have the gumption, the know how and the resources to pull it off it can be an incredible, visceral experience.

Let’s just say Amelia, her family and co-workers with Burns Rentals did have the resources and the know how to pull it off. They are a full service special events rental and design company located in Mishawaka. Great people who I would strongly recommend! They did an amazing job from an outdoor cigar tent to snow sweeping machines and beautiful open flame area heaters. The team at Burns had all the tricks to keep us warm while outside and inside. They planned, designed and furnished the event. Since their team was there to play they made a great choice and hired our Angie with Belle Behind the Ball to coordinate the day! Here’s another great event Burns Rentals provided for we filmed for Sarah & Justin

All in all it was an incredible day. We were honored to be part of their celebration!

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!

Katie & Stefan {Wedding at D’Amore in Indy}

At the top of the city looking out was the amazing view we had during Katie and Stefan’s wedding this past November. Katie and Stefan along with the talented staff at D’Amore designed the event perfectly to compliment the winter season. There were snowflake centerpieces, frosty champagne, mistletoe and cool uplighting to set the tone. They also planned their wedding for the day after Thanksgiving when the christmas lights are turned on at monument circle downtown. Of course we had a front row seat to view the lighting and subsequent fireworks show from where we were at the top of Chase Tower. I hope you enjoy the sights and sounds of their very special day!
