The other evening I hung out with my friends Jeremy and Dawn and their children. We didn’t really have anything planned, just took some shots around their home. It was a great night. Abby couldn’t stop smiling and Lucas hit ‘bombs’ with the baseball bat in the back yard. What a family full of love.
In August I got my chance to film my first wedding at the Oak Hill Mansion up in Carmel, Indiana. It is quite a place. The ceremony was out back with a beautiful wooded backdrop, while the reception was inside in their banquet hall. I don’t know the history about this house but it looks like at one time a family lived here.
Kylie and Eric are a special couple with the lord at the center of their hearts. They may have dated for longer than they excepted but this gave them time to put God in front of their lives. As you can see it was a happy, emotional day. The outside ceremony was beautiful to say the least. It was an extremely hot day, but it didn’t slow anything down. It was also great working with some talented photographers, Elizabeth Chapman and Cathy Satre. I think my favorite part of the day was watching the couple take a moment during the ceremony to pray and give thanks to God. I hope this is something Kylie and Eric can pull out from time to time to remember when it all began.
A few weeks ago Blythe emailed me and asked if I’d like to film her surprising Nate with an anniversary gift. I said sure! I’ve never done anything like this, but it was pretty fun hiding behind a bush about 50 yards away. Happy 1st Anniversary Nate and Blythe! While you are here watch their wedding film again.
Sarah and Jason have a story. Hockey guy from Minnesota meeting a country girl from a small town in Indiana. This was a fun wedding. The ceremony was at a small church in Shelbyville with a lot of character and the reception was at the Mavris in downtown Indianapolis.
A couple months before their wedding I got to meet Sarah and Jason for lunch to talk about their day. It was cool to see how much they are in love. And from meeting them I could tell there wedding would be a lot of fun. Then they mentioned their photographer was Jennifer at Baby Grace Photography, and I was like, “wait, I know her!” It is always fun working with her and her assistant.
Well enough said, take a look at Sarah and Jason’s video and while your at it, leave a comment. Congrats Sarah and Jason, it was great being part of your day!
It seems like yesterday I met Sara, Aaron and their family over at McAlister’s Deli, and now their wedding has come and gone. This was a day full of emotion, just as everyone expected. Sara and Aaron were great to work with and their bridal party was some of the most hilarious people I’ve met.
It’s always nice going over to the Hawthorns County Club for a wedding. It seems like lately I’ve been a regular there. I hope Sara and Aaron can look back at this day for years to come, have a lifetime of joy and happiness! Congrats Sara and Aaron! Thanks for including me as a part of your wedding.
Lindsey and Chris have to be the nicest couple I’ve met so far. I know I may have said this before, but really they are sweet and madly in love. Just as Lindsey’s dad said, if you don’t know their story, you should. Chris has known Lindsey for over 20 years until he finally got the courage to ask her out. And they pretty much knew on the first date they were going to marry. Here they are, on Friday the 13th, at the Indiana Landmarks Center tying the knot. Which by the way, the Landmarks Center is one of my new favorite venues. Not only is it nice having the ceremony and reception in the same building, the building is beautiful. I believe it was an old church, recently remodeled. It was also great working with Jessica Strickland, be sure to glance at the photos here.
Just take a look for yourself and see the love Lindsey and Chris have for each other and even more important, God. It was a pleasure being invited to your biggest day. I’ll never forget it. And if it gets a little burry over the years, I’ll watch this again.
