Laurel Hall is another one of those hidden gems in Indianapolis. This place has been a beautiful home, a girls school and is now an amazing wedding venue. Laurel Hall is tucked away from the road near Fall Creek and 56th Street. I think I found the venue for my daughter’s wedding, I better start saving.
I was really looking forward to this wedding with Meghan and Ryan. They are a sweet couple in love. As you’ll see in the video, the toasts were amazing. It’s not often you hear from the mother of the bride and it was a pleasure to hear the emotions coming from her voice. Meghan and Ryan, thank you for choosing me to help capture the day.
Jessica and Scott, well what can I say… Some weddings have planners, but this was a wedding where Scott and Jessica along with family and friends put a lot of hard work and time to make it happen. And not only did this couple pull it off, but they pulled it off well. It’s not everyday you come across a couple that first met in the church like Jessica and Scott. This strong foundation will give them a marriage built on solid ground with the Lord as their number one priority.
I like the shot of the flower girl coming down the aisle and meeting up with her proud mother. I also love the reaction on Jessica’s dads face when she hugs and kisses him after the ceremony. But most of all, I think when Scott’s brother mentions that their dad is looking down on them and smiling, was my favorite part of the day. Jessica and Scott, may the years to come be filled with even more joy than this special day.
Going to a wedding with a live band is always fun. This day started up on the north side at their Catholic Church. It was beautiful. I thought it was hilarious when Kelly was putting Patricio’s ring on, must have been one size too small, haha. But like Patricio said, the highlight of the day was the poem by Kelly’s father. It had me laughing and almost in tears at the same time. It’s always great working downtown at the Conrad, seems like I’m there a few times a year. It was also great working with Brock from SB Childs Photography, see some of the amazing photos here. Best wishes to Kelly and Patricio!
I love going up to Fishers at the Hawthorns Country Club for weddings. It’s a great venue and for a videographer it’s nice because everything is in one location. The guys even get ready in a room right next to the girls before the ceremony. Working with Jennifer at Baby Grace Photography was a first for me and was a pleasure to see her in action.
I had a lot of pressure editing this piece with Anastasia and James. Not only to improve on each wedding I shoot, but because I think Anastasia is my biggest fan on Facebook and I didn’t want to let her down. Not to sound cheesy but this was a wedding where I could feel the love, especially during the first dance. When I met with Anastasia and James at Starbucks I felt so comfortable and I could tell their wedding would be a blast. And it was. Congrats to the both of you!
This was one wedding I was looking forward to since it was booked. Why? I’ve always wanted to film at a barn reception and their photographer was Stacy Newgent, so right then, I knew I’d love their style. Plus it was near Cincinnati, that’s fun! By the way check out the amazing photos from Stacy.
Every once in a while, you have a wedding where everything seems to click. And this was one of them. The Father speaking in the ceremony, the toasts, welcome speech by Ashley’s dad, Ashley reading her letter from TJ, just to name a few. Not to mention all the little details, that told their story. TJ, who was in a band, requested the music, which was a little different from my style, but I think it worked really well. Actually a couple of the songs have really grown on me and are stuck in my head.
Out of town weddings are so much fun, especially when the couple is so excited to have you there! And Ashely and TJ were just that. It was a pleasure being apart of their wedding. And it was the first wedding I actually went home early. I hope this will be a keepsake you can enjoy for the rest of your lives.
p.s. I don’t recommend filming while driving.
