This was an incredible location for a wedding on a private ranch in Illinois. This is just a teaser but their wedding film will provide the story of how they met, which is a great story. Tim and Danielle are so down to earth and we really enjoyed getting to know them. The site of the wedding had an incredible landscape view of parts of the ranch and was the perfect spot.
This is more of a personal post for us. A week and a half ago we had one of our family dinners. When you have 5 children all out of the house trying schedule family time with everyone can be difficult. We try to get together monthly but with busy wedding season it doesn’t happen every month like we would like. Ok, back to this particular family dinner. After dinner we were going to have a fire in our fire pit and John, Bria and Damien went outside to get it started while I was attending to our beautiful granddaughter Brynleigh. Bria came in to check in on her and it was at that moment Damien asked John if he could have Bria’s hand in marriage. John of course gave his blessing and then Bria came back out so Damien told John they would touch base that week.
Damien had the idea of proposing while we were shooting family photos of them at the park the following Sunday so we put the plan in place. John sent a text to both Bria and Damien to see if they wanted to do a quick photo session since the leaves are turning. We set it up to meet at Forest Park in Noblesville, Indiana. All Bria knew was we were taking family photos of them with the fall leaves. Brynleigh was not into doing the photos. Why of course our granddaughter didn’t want to smile when we have a camera in our hands. Shaylee was in on the proposal and came along to “help” with Bryn. I honestly don’t know how she kept the secret in without exploding as she is the one who always blurts it out and creates a chart to figure out who everyone has for Secret Santa. After a few photos with Bryn, John took some photos of just Damien and Bria and the code was John would say, “That’s good”. Then Damien got down on one knee and popped the question. I don’t think they realized I was actually shooting video or maybe they did but I wanted to make sure we had this moment on film for them. As you can tell by the video it was a little shaky during the proposal, one because I was so excited but also because I was crying, Happy Tears of course.
So now we will be on the other side of wedding planning and now the parents of the bride. John and I are so happy for this next chapter in our life and blessed Bria has Damien in her life. Our family is growing! Let the wedding planning begin!
We had the pleasure of filming Dan and Sadie’s Kokomo wedding. Sadie went to high school with our very own Felicia so she had been following our work for some time. We loved getting to know Dan and Sadie and learning about their story. It was a very unique story about how they met and the proposal. One of our favorite things about filming weddings is finding the story about the couple because each of our clients is unique and their story is not like anyone else.
Like many of our weddings this summer we kept our eye on the radar as we had a very rainy summer. Luckily it was just overcast all day, which is actually good for photography and video. It can be a challenge shooting in very bright sun. We were excited to see there would not be any rain for Dan and Sadie’s big day. The entire day was very relaxed and ran so smoothly. It was very sweet to see how Dan lights up when he looks at Sadie. The way he smiled as she was coming down the isle as she approached him was made me smile as I edited their film. Of course Sadie’s smile is contagious too.
Thank you Dan and Sadie for having us there to film your wedding and create your wedding film.

We hope you loved this short little teaser of Jeremy and Emily’s Laurel Hall Wedding. What started out as a very, and I mean very wet start to the day, turned out to be amazing. When we arrived the girls were so chill and relaxed. It was so lovely seeing them just hanging out and enjoying the peacefulness of the morning. While the girls were getting hair and make up done at the Omni Severin Hotel the guys were getting hair cuts and shaves over at Red’s. By the time we got to Laurel Hall the rain had stopped and the sun was starting to peek out. The rest of the day was so beautiful & emotional (I found myself tearing up several times throughout the day). We are honored to have been a part of their wedding team to preserve the day for them.
