Notre Dame Wedding | Wedding Video

Check out this Notre Dame Wedding as featured in this wedding trailer from Wedding Day Cinema… How beautiful!

Here at South Bend Weddings we love wedding videos for their emotions and their complete documentation of the wedding day.  We believe that a wedding video is a top 10 must have for every wedding. How else can you relive those heart felt words from the maid of honor for a lifetime. See the entire moment and not a still of one moment from the wedding day, except through a wedding video! Wedding videos today are not the same as your mom & dads three hours of boring footage, they are highly edited, entertaining works of art, if you hire the right company to document your wedding day.

This wedding video of Sara & Daniel was created by one of the best wedding cinematographers in the Midwest, WEVA Creative Excellence winning company Wedding Day Cinema out of Chicago. You can’t go wrong by hiring them for your Notre Dame Wedding!

South Bend Wedding Day

Here at South Bend Weddings we love sharing with our readers the beauty of weddings through photos! We are always looking for weddings to feature, so if you are a newlywed couple or photographer, videographer or wedding planner and have a wedding you would like to feature please contact us at info at

Our newest featured wedding, provided by Kelly Burden at Contemporary Images, is the South Bend wedding of Jessica & at the Hilton Garden Inn in the Gillespie Center garden.

From Kelly: It was a gorgeous day in South Bend for an outside wedding on the campus of St Marys.  The wedding ceremony was held outside in the courtyard and we had plenty of time before and after for a fun photo walk around Saint Mary’s beautiful campus. The reception took place in the beautiful Gillespie Center Ballroom in the Hilton Garden Inn. The bride and groom had a candy table buffet as large as a candy store. There was also a photo-booth and a hot dog stand! This was easily one of the most entertaining wedding receptions I have ever photographed in South Bend!

Notre Dame Wedding : Real Wedding

Basilica Monday was last week at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on the campus of Notre Dame University and all the lucky brides and grooms who got their dates should be neck deep in planning their 2013 wedding day! To help with Notre Dame Wedding Planning, here is some wedding day inspiration from wedding planner Cynthia Basker of Celebrated Events in South Bend and the wedding of Mary & Michael.

The check out the gorgeous floral by Michaelangelos “The Event Company”! There are many good florists in the South Bend area, but Michaelangelos’ work is always exceptional. Check out the latest issue of Veils & Vows for their inspiring photo shoot in the spring issue on pages 42 to 53.

According to wedding planner Cynthia Basker: Throughout the planning process, the mantra was ‘soft, summery and romantic’, and I think we most decidedly accomplished that feel. The day was full of meaningful details and family traditions. Among them, the soup course at dinner: Italian Wedding Soup – made from a family recipe, handed down from mother to daughter on the bride’s side. The Groom’s aunts lovingly made and brought with them, traditional Italian cookies, which the guests enjoyed after dinner. The day was so joyful – can’t you see it on their faces?
