Jamie & Daniel – 1/5/08

It didn’t take long for us to cover our first event of 2008. Jamie & Dan were referred to me by Dan’s brother and sister-in-law Chris & Stephanie, whose wedding I videotaped a couple of years ago. Our coverage started with a rehearsal at St. John Catholic Church, followed by a fabulous dinner at Morton’s Steakhouse. Dan and his brothers have a tradition of roasting each other in a game show format at their respective rehearsal dinners, and the “Jeopardy” routine that they used on this particular evening was hilarious beyond description.

The big day started with preparations at Crowne Plaza Union Station, where the reception would be held later that evening. The wedding ceremony at St. John’s was beautiful as always, accentuated by the holiday decor and detailed nativity scene by the altar. We hopped on a trolley afterwards and went to Monument Circle for some photo time with Ramon and Cindy Garcia of Altamira Photography in the unseasonably mild weather. Then we returned to Union Station for some fun photos by the train cars. (Which have been converted into very romantic hotel rooms, by the way!)

The Grand Hall was beautifully decorated by the staff of Kathy’s Kloset, who ironically had a booth right next to ours at a bridal show this weekend. All of the guests enjoyed a lively cocktail hour, more humorous toasting, and some great music provided by DJ Brian Jones of Indy Sounds. This was an exciting way to kick off what is shaping up to be another spectacular year, and I am looking forward to working with Jamie’s family again when her sister Chanda ties the knot in April.
