Michelle & Jordan wedding highlights

Michelle & Jordan’s New Year’s Eve wedding was awesome! Here are some of our favorite images.

The sanctuary at Laurel United Methodist Church in Springfield was still beautifully decorated for Christmas.
Guests with sparklers aways make for a fun exit from the church!
They met on a golf course, so the favors at the reception were a given!
The midnight festivities were celebrated with noise makers, tiaras and glow bracelets.
The couple presented a toast to their family and friends right before midnight.
Happy new year!!!
Here's to a great 2012!

Michelle & Jordan’s New Years Eve wedding

Michelle & Jordan were married Saturday, December 31, 2011, in Springfield, Illinois.

The bridal party stopped at the capitol building after the ceremony and used sparklers to ‘write’ out the wedding date.

Congratulations to Michelle & Jordan!

Katie & Jack – Wedding highlights

Katie Duffin & Jack Contri were married July 2, 2011, at St. Agnes Catholic Church in Springfield and their reception was at Erin’s Pavilion at Springfield’s new Southwind Park.

Enjoy some of our favorite moments from their wedding day!

Katie was given a special hanger which she used to hang her wedding gown on the special day. The hanger was a gift from friends who found it on one of my favorite gift websites – Etsy!

Jack and his brother Val chill out at their parents’ house before getting ready.

Katie’s mom, sister and other bridesmaids help her get ready to go to the park to meet her groom.

Jack & Katie decided to see each other before the ceremony. There was a wedding later in the day at this gazebo in Springfield’s Washington Park, but a call to the park district before the big day ensured it would be available when we needed it.

After a few minutes seeing each other for the first time on their big day, they were ready to head to Katie’s parents’ house for family and bridal party portraits.

Katie’s parents’ backyard includes a bridge over a creek that runs behind their house. Katie’s sister, Shannon spent hours earlier that week power washing the bridge so it would be ready for photos.


Katie and her father Dennis wait for the ceremony to begin. Katie’s mom Theresa surprised Katie by having the florist incorporate Theresa’s own wedding veil into Katie’s bridal bouquet.

Katie & Jack, along with their bridal party, entertained the guests with their entertaining, dancing entrance.











Shannon’s maid-of-honor speech included a prop. The prop illustrated stories of Katie’s graduate school days.

Val’s best man toast was heartfelt and reflected the brothers’ close relationship.

The wagon came in handy when it came to the garter toss.

We always keep an eye on when the sun is setting. If it’s an appropriate time for the bride and groom to leave their party for a few minutes, we try to use the beautiful light to our advantage.

Decorating with a special drape

Prairie Production was the venue for Anne & Loren’s wedding in Chicago on Saturday, April 23, 2011. It’s a fantastic space because it’s a blank slate! There is so much that can be done to decorate. Anne’s cousin Melissa used her artistic talent to make a drape that separated the eating area from the ceremony area before and during the ceremony. When the eating area was ready for guests, the curtain was pulled back.

Highlights from Jessica & Kenny’s wedding

May 14, 2011, was the wedding day of Jessica & Kenny. They were married at Chapin Christian Church. It’s a beautiful, old church, and is the church Kenny grew up in.

One of the favors the guests found when they entered the reception was a bottle of Jones Soda with Jessica & Kenny’s photo on it! What a great idea for a favor! Wedding reception at Hamilton’s 110 North East.

The head table was treated to beautiful raspberry champaign cocktails.

The cake was amazing. The red strawberries went with the color scheme and who doesn’t love chocolate-covered strawberries?!

Aside: Pastor Steve Peters was the officiant, but his “day job” is banquet and catering director at Kickapoo Creek Winery in Edwards. Be sure to check out his venue for wedding receptions for the Peoria area.

Murphy – more than just a dog

Anne and Loren were married at Prairie Productions in Chicago on Saturday, April 23, 2011.

Murphy is Anne (and now Loren’s) dog. To say that he is an important part of their lives is probably an understatement. For him to be part of the wedding ceremony was a given.

Here is Murphy on his humans’ big day –

Murphy, waiting outside Anne’s bedroom door, wanted to be the first one to see her in her wedding dress.

Prairie Productions, the site of the wedding, is animal friendly and Murphy was welcomed with open arms.

Murphy laid quietly during the ceremony.

After the ceremony, Murphy hung out on the patio.

Anne & Loren – Wedding highlights

Anne & Loren were married Saturday 23 April 2011 at Prairie Productions in Chicago. It has been raining a lot here in the Midwest, so I was preparing myself all week for that possibility. No rain appeared! The day was absolutely beautiful in every way.

Here are some of our favorite details from their day.

Anne & Loren decided to see each other before the ceremony. They did so at a park right near their home.

Anne’s dog, Murphy was an important part of the day (click here for a post on Murphy)

Anne had help making all of the napkins (and decorating the favor boxes).

Loren’s mom, Sharon, and Anne take a peek at people arriving for the wedding.

Loren’s father, Rudy is an organist and musician. He brought a small pipe organ to Prairie Productions and played for the couple’s ceremony.

Anne didn’t choose dresses for her bridesmaids. She simply asked them to wear blue or green. They choose dresses that fit their styles and body types as well as budgets.

They had amazing desserts from Sweet Mandy B’s including macaroons and cupcakes.

The cake Anne & Loren cut was from a bakery & coffee shop they visited the morning of their wedding.

The couple decided on using iTunes for their music. They plugged into Prairie Production’s sound system and danced all night.

There is a great view of the skyline right outside Prairie Productions and we took advantage of it near the end of the night.

Congratulations to Anne & Loren and a beautiful wedding day! Wishing you a long and happy marriage!

Wedding at Inn At 835 Historic Hotel in Springfield Illinois

Tiffany and I were honored to photography the very intimate wedding ceremony of June & Brandon Stricker Thursday afternoon at the Inn at 835 in Springfield, Illinois.

The couple picked Thursday for their ceremony to mark the sixth anniversary of their first date. The witnesses and only guests were June & Brandon’s parents. A neat opportunity to provide wedding photography. Afterwards we took portraits at the capitol building/state house and at Springfield Union Station/Lincoln Presidential Library Visitor Center.

Ceremony by retired judge Hon. Roger W. Holmes as officiant— who said they were a great couple because a) they know how to compromise (moving to Springfield as a half-way point between families) and b) reacted with grace and fun when the ring didn’t slip onto Brandon’s finger.

The Inn at 835 is a historic hotel just off downtown Springfield. (We’ve photographed wedding receptions here before, then venue has nice event facilities). Here’s some of the details we photographed before the ceremony.
