Brendan and Ali had a beautiful downtown Indianapolis wedding. We met Ali several years ago when we filmed her best friend and Maid of honor Betsy’s wedding. We were absolutely thrilled when Ali contacted us to film her wedding. We absolutely love both Brendan and Ali’s families and friends and they made the day even more special. It was so fun seeing Ali’s dad dancing and singing along to the radio while Ali was getting her hair done. The special moment when he saw her in her dress for the first time. Seeing how close Brendan and his mother are. I loved seeing how emotional Brendan got as Ali started walking down the isle. People always as our opinion about whether or not they should do a first look or not. There are advantages and disadvantages to both. For this particular wedding, I am so glad they waited to see each other.
After the ceremony it was time to party and boy was it a party!!! The first fun event was when Brendan and Ali were lead into the reception by The “Indianapolis 500” Gordon Pipers, which is a tradition for Brendan’s family to have bagpipers at their weddings. After all the formal heart felt speeches and formal dances everyone was on the dance floor. And an surprise from Ali’s dad was having the Indiana University Alumni Marching Band come in and play a few IU tunes. (HINT: Just when you think the movie is over, let it play).
Thank you Brendan and Ali, and both of your families for allowing us to capture and document you amazing wedding day.
