Fort Wayne Wedding Film | Joey + Jenna

I know it has been quiet on the blog lately! Between the holidays and moving our office, I am finally getting settled back into a routine and can get caught up on blogging the weddings of our fabulous couples. I am pleased to be blogging Joey and Jenna’s feature film. I posted their trailer just a couple of weeks after their wedding.

It was great to get back to my hometown to film this gorgeous Fort Wayne wedding. Joey and Jenna’s story is amazing. She is from Fort Wayne and Joey is from Miami. They met while enrolled in the Disney college program. I am a strong believe that God places circumstances and people in our lives for a reason. Sometimes when you think the plans for you life are going how you want them to go something happens and that right turn you thought you would take ends up being a left turn and everything you want is right around the corner.

We anticipated this day since they booked us 19 months before their wedding. Jenna had told us of her vision of a 20s inspired theme for her wedding. It did not disappoint!!! Their day was a beautiful early September day. The sun was shining and it was a perfect day to be outside for photos. The wedding took place at Empyrean Events located on the top 2 floors of the PNC tower in downtown Fort Wayne. The views are spectacular!!! If you are having a Fort Wayne wedding I highly suggest checking out this venue!

Joey and Jenna, thank you for having us be a part of your day. We are honored to have been there to not only capture your wedding day but to tell your story!

We worked with an amazing vendor team to make Joey and Jenna’s day perfect!

Laurel Hall Wedding Film | Jeremy + Emily

Jeremy and Emily had a beautiful Laurel Hall Wedding. You may remember their cinematic trailer we posted just a few weeks after their wedding. It was a very exciting, happy and emotional day.

The day, like many in 2016, started out very very rainy. The girls got ready downtown at the Omni Severin Hotel. It was such a chill morning and the girls sat around chatting with each other as they got their hair and make up done. Meanwhile the guys met up at Red’s Classic Barber Shop for hair cuts and shaves. They all headed for Laurel Hall to finish getting ready. The bridal suite at Laurel Hall is a gorgeous room overlooking the patio and lawn. The light coming in the windows is amazing. The guys got ready in the library and they enjoyed a game of cards while they waited. During this time the rain stopped, the clouds started to break up and peeks of sun began to shine.

Family is very important to Jeremy and Emily. For Emily, she is close to her dad and due to some health scares she did not know if he would be there to walk her down the isle. Knowing this we decided to mic her dad during the father daughter moment. And oh my goodness I am so thankful we did. That audio soundbite of when he turned and saw her was so moving and powerful, even though I have watched this probably a hundred times in the editing process I get chocked up and the tears roll down my face EVERY SINGLE TIME!

The ceremony took place in the upstairs chapel at Laurel Hall. The ceremony was very special because Emily’s brother was one of the officiants and he gave a beautiful sermon. Jeremy and Emily wrote their own vows in addition to the traditional vows. We love when couples are able to write their vows. While the traditional vows are wonderful, when couples can write their own it adds a special element and their personality to their wedding. One line that stood out from Emily’s vows, “We may not be perfect people, but we are perfect for each other”.

The reception was beautiful and the toasts so heartfelt. They ended off the night were a spectacularly dance party including glow sticks and colorful flashing glasses. I could go on and on about their day, but I feel their wedding film speaks more and encompasses their day better than I can write about it. Thank you Jeremy and Emily for having us capture your day and tell your story.

Indiana Historical Society Wedding | Kevin + Michele

Indiana Historical Society Wedding | Kevin + Michele from Northernlight Filmworks on Vimeo.

Kevin and Michele had a beautiful day for their Indiana Historical Society Wedding. This is their feature film and one we were honored to capture. You may have seen their trailer a few months ago. There were a few things that stood out to me at this wedding; first everyone was pitching in to make sure all the details were coming together and ready, second family is very very important to Kevin and Michele and their family was the center of their wedding, and third it didn’t rain. This year was a very wet and rainy summer, so having a perfect weather day was amazing.

When creating a wedding film I always look for the story. In this case the story revolved around their family and close friends. The story was told through those family and friends at the reception during their toasts. I especially loved the poem Michele’s father translated from a 19th Century Dutch Poet. It was so sweet how he used this poem to relate to marriage and how Kevin and Michele can use these wise words to strengthen and grow in their marriage.

Thank you Kevin and Michele for having our team there to document your wedding day. We wish you a long life time of happiness.

Lauren & Michael-West Baden Springs Feature Film

Lauren and Michael’s beautiful fairy tale wedding took place at the gorgeous West Baden Springs Hotel, in French Lick, Indiana. West Baden has such a special meaning to Lauren and her family and knew she wanted to get married there some day.  It was such an emotional day and we love how Michael told Lauren during their first look, “don’t cry, you’re too beautiful to cry”.  Everything from the beautiful dress,  gorgeous shoes & jewelry, the emotional first look,  all the little details that transformed West Baden into Lauren & Michael’s place, the heart felt speeches, the special candle lit dance honoring Lauren’s father, and the amazing fun party at the end of the night, made for a spectacular event and one we won’t forget.  We are so honored to have been a part of this amazing team to help make this day a lasting memory for Lauren, Michael and their families for ever.
