As part of our efforts to reach out to brides to educate them about our wedding photography services, we took part in the Elegant Bridal Expo last weekend at the Hilton, downtown Springfield Illinois 62703.
Thanks to Hamilton’s Catering for the yummy sandwiches! They have been especially busy lately, helping some of the brides who lost their dates and deposits when the Camelot Banquet Center in Springfield closed. Hamilton’s not only has the 110 North East banquet facility in Jacksonville, but they also manage bookings for facilities in Springfield (in addition to catering events all over Central Illinois).
Now, here’s those photos from Katie & Zach’s wedding in Iowa City, Iowa. Zach’s family hails from Jacksonville, and wanted us to photograph their wedding – so we went out west to Iowa for the weekend. They had a Quaker wedding at the Friends Meeting House in town, then a reception at the family’s farm near the Riverside Casino & Golf Resort. The day featured craft beers, antiques from Zach’s mom, catering from New Pioneer Food Co-Op, dining in an outdoor tent, dancing in a historic barn, and capped off with a bonfire.

One of our highlights from last year was when Amanda, whose wedding we photographed in the summer, took the microphone at the Springfield Local Favorites Bridal Bash at Northfield Inn and Suites and told all the brides what great photos and service she received from us. She said she didn’t have to worry about photos at all, and had a great time with us on her wedding day. Thanks Amanda!
Part of the plans for our Springfield professional wedding photography was to photograph the couple on the running trail in Centennial Park where they met. With temperatures over 100° – we took a quick photo then jumped in the air-conditioned limo and headed to their health club for fun photos with the wedding party.
Other vendor note — flowers, centerpieces and decorating by Tom Anderson of An Event Design florists and event planning.
At the recent Jacksonville bridal show Laurie from Girls in White Satin Bridal and Formal Wear said that cowboy boots and Western touches are quite popular accents for weddings now (especially for this fall). Made us think of our professional wedding photography for Katelin & Brian’s wedding at MacMurray College in Jacksonville, Illinois.
Katelin wore a dress from Girls in White Satin. She accented decorations with lace, loved the back of her dress, and hoped for snow so she could get photos outside. Ceremony at MacMurray College’s Annie Merner Chapel, with reception immediately following at McClelland Dining Hall next door. MacMurray is a great location for a wedding (that’s were Tiffany and I were married).
Steve and Tiffany did a terrific job of capturing special moments during our ceremony and reception. They were available before and stayed after the time frame that they committed to. We will forever enjoy looking through the pictures and recalling the many people that made the day so special. Thank you for sharing your talent and your professionalism!
Congratulations to Devon and Jeff of The Classic Harpist for being selected as a winner of the WeddingWire Bride’s Choice Awards 2013 for wedding music.

They offer a great service for brides!

Ryan’s gifts to his groomsmen were cufflinks individualized to each guy’s personal interest. It was a very thoughtful gift that likely took time to shop for. Great job, Ryan!

Miranda & Larry were married April 22, 2012, at Central Baptist Church in Springfield. The sanctuary was flooded with light from huge windows and the decor was simple and elegant.
Miranda & Larry included descriptions of some traditions in their wedding program, including this one: Irish tradition holds that bridesmaids wear white to confuse any fairs that want to cause mischief during the ceremony. Also, during Midieval times, it helped confuse anyone who wished to break up the ceremony and kidnap the bride for her dowry or ransom.
