Naples, Florida Wedding | Grady + Jill

It was the perfect weekend for Grady and Jill’s Naples, Florida wedding! We loved getting to know Grady and Jill as well as all of their family and close friends. The weekend was filled with so much love and happiness, I could not stop smiling as I was editing their film.

There are so many special moments I absolutely love in their film. From her dads speech to Jill bouncing up and down after getting in her dress and saying she wants to wear her dress all the time. Grady talking about how there was so much depth to Jill and he recognized that when they first met. Then seeing him tear up when they had their first look. All the loving glances they gave each other throughout the weekend. It is so apparent how close they both are with their families. I also adore how Jill had a piece of her grandfather’s shirt sown in her dress so he was with her on her wedding day.

Grady and Jill, thank you so much for having us document your spectacular wedding weekend and create your wedding film for you to relive over and over again for many years to come.

Downtown Indianapolis Winter Wedding | Steven + Marianne

Christmas is my favorite holiday. It is also a perfect time for a downtown Indianapolis winter wedding. The entire city is decorated which makes for great backdrops for photos. The only thing missing from Steven and Marianne’s winter wedding was the snow.

It is such an honor when we get to film a wedding of a sibling of a previous bride or groom. We filmed Steven’s sister Emily’s wedding in the fall of 2017 {JD + Emily}. I was so thrilled when Marianne contacted me about filming her and Steven’s wedding.

I sometimes get asked how we keep our wedding films from looking exactly like each other. Especially after doing being in the profession for 13 years. While most weddings are the same in the structure of the day and usually the words said at the ceremony, I look for the ways it is different. One way is through interviewing the couple. I loved learning about Steven and Marianne’s story. How they met at Purdue and about the qualities they love about the other was so beautiful and sweet. Each couple is different, unique and has a different story. Another way is drawing into the speeches at the reception. Marianne’s dad gave a wonderful toast and I chose this to be the base story line for their day. It not only was a fabulous toast, it spoke to the character our lovely couple and what makes them unique.

It truly was a magical day. Steven and Marianne, thank you for having us there to document your day and create your film!

Spring Indianapolis Wedding Trailer | Grant + Erin

We had the pleasure of filming Grant and Erin’s downtown Indianapolis wedding just a few weeks ago. It was such a beautiful wedding day. Grant and Erin’s family and friends were so wonderful and we loved capturing all the moments between them. I especially loved Erin’s bridesmaids reactions when they saw her in her wedding dress for the first time. There are so many more amazing moments I just couldn’t fit into a one-minute teaser, so make sure to stay tuned for many more special moments from their day. It is always wonderful working with an amazing team of “friendors” too.

Christ Church + Omni Severin Wedding | Chris + Amanda

Chris and Amanda had a stunning Christ Church Cathedral and Omni Severin wedding. It is always an honor when we get to film a sibling wedding of our previous clients. We met Chris and Amanda in 2017 when we filmed Chris’ brother Nick’s wedding. We were so excited to be working with their family again.

The day started off at the Omni to capture both Amanda and Chris getting ready! They did a first look at the grand staircase inside the Omni, which is so stunning. We then captured a few family photos and took a stroll over to Hudnut Commons for more photos with the bridal party. The ceremony at Christ Church Cathedral was beautiful and Dean Steve Carlsen had a wonderful message for their marriage. After the ceremony we swung by White River State Park for a more photos. A groomsman rented one of those scooters and Amanda jumped on and road across the bride! Then it was back to the Omni for dinner and dancing. It was an amazing party to celebrate Chris and Amanda. As always Jim Cerone had the dance floor packed and rocking all night!

Naples Florida Wedding | Jill + Grady

This was an incredibly beautiful wedding in Naples, Florida that we filmed. We arrived at the Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club where we stayed and our first thought was Wow!. Naples and their beaches are an amazing backdrop for a wedding. The wedding was at Trinity by the Cove Episcopal Church, which was a quaint little southern style Church. We finished the day at Port Royal Club for the reception.

The great thing about destination weddings is we have more time to connect with our couple and we get a better sense of relationships and personalities. Jill and Grady have a great family and close circle of friends.

This is a teaser until the final film is completed. We enjoyed working with the talents of Stephanie Meiser of Along Came Stephanie and Photographer Jacqui Cole.

Black Iris Wedding Film | Bob + Whitney

It was such a beautiful late September day for Bob and Whitney’s Black Iris wedding. It was one of those days photographers and videographers love because the cloud cover was consistent and created the perfect lighting. I remember thinking, and probably said many times how stunning the footage looked on the screen on the back of my camera.

It is so apparent how much Bob and Whitney love each other. They were both beaming all day! They did not want to see each other before the ceremony, however they had a very beautiful moment prior where they met with the front door of the mansion between them to hold hands and comfort each other. Then that moment while Whitney came down the isle toward Bob and they both just lit up with the biggest smiles.

The speeches at the reception solidify yet again how much they are in love and how much family and friends are to them.

Thank you for having us be a part of your wedding day. It truly is an honor to create a wedding film for you to watch for years to come.

Muncie Wedding | Scott + Emily

We had the pleasure of documenting Scott and Emily’s Muncie wedding. Despite the torrential downpours and flooding it was a beautiful wedding for an amazing couple and family.

We loved learning about Scott and Emily’s story and how they have had their eyes on each other since middle school. Their first look was the sweetest. Scott had the biggest smile on his face as soon as he turned to see his beautiful bride.

Having a Muncie wedding was important to their story. St. Mary’s Catholic church is the same church Emily’s parents got married in as well as Muncie being where both Scott and Emily went to college.

Thank you Scott and Emily for having us be a part of your wedding to tell your story through video and photography.
