Wan-Yuan & Josh wedding in Champaign, Taiwanese touches at University of Illinois – Urbana’s Illini Union

We were able to provide wedding photography for Wan-Yuan & Josh 23 June 2018 in Champaign-Urbana.

Wan-Yuan was a graduate student at the University of Illinois – Urbana, when she met Josh. Their first date ended up at the Illini Union, and that was where they had their ceremony and reception.

We took the bride and groom to Wan-Yuan’s graduate housing in Urbana, and their favorite restaurant in Champaign for portraits.

The ceremony started with a traditional Taiwanese Tea Ceremony. A traditional Western ceremony followed in the South Lounge of the Illini Union. Half-way through the reception, the bride changed into a traditional red wedding dress.

Congratulations to the bride and groom!

Happy Sushi in Springfield a must do for this groom on his wedding day

For this wedding in Springfield, there was no way Ryan the groom was going to go through the most important day of his life without having his favorite food from his favorite restaurant — Happy Sushi in Springfield.

So while he and his groomswomen waited for Amy the bride to get ready, the crew made a stop at the restaurant, 846 S Grand Ave E, Springfield, IL 62703.

We loved covering this real moment during the wedding day, something that showed true personality. The couple also were particular about their wedding venue and chose the Hoogland Center for the Arts (also Hoogland Center for the Arts on Facebook). They also wanted a band, and picked a great live wedding band (featuring mashups and lots of extras) Fun DMC (also Fun DMC on Facebook).

Amber has special first dance with her father during wedding at Hamilton’s 110 North East

Best thing about this wedding — Amber had an amazing first dance with her father. They started out dancing, but then a volleyball was thrown in. Bill tossed the ball to Amber, and the bride bumped it back. Amber said sports was more their style than dancing. They did this “a million times” when she was growing up, so it was a great way to bring out their true personalities on her wedding day.

Here’s some images from the day, and you can see more wedding photos on Facebook. The wedding was July 4th, and the night ended with sparklers!

Amanda and Nick had an elegant, beautiful wedding at the Jacksonville Country Club, and they are one of our new sample weddings on our wedding photography website. The ceremony was under beautiful shade trees on the golf course and the reception was in the clubhouse.

The day featured amazing service and food (as always) from the Jacksonville, Illinois Country Club. Tom Anderson from An Event Design went above and beyond with incredible arrangements, bouquets and boutineers. Icing On the Cake made an incredibly delicious and beautiful wedding cake. A Hair Company provided hair and makeup services and made sure all the ladies felt beautiful in their comfortable and beautiful salon.

Amanda’s mom walked her down the aisle and where she and Nick exchanged vows and rings while the guests enjoyed the shade, the beautiful weather and the touching ceremony. The guests signed a special guest book by putting their thumbprints on a drawing of a peacock. And the speeches by the maid and matron of honor and best man were touching and personal.

They danced the night away to great tunes, and Amanda & Nick even snuck away for a few minutes to have a few minutes alone under the full moon.

See more photos on Facebook. Thanks for the five-star review from the bride, and another from Godmother Sharon. The portrait at the top of this blog post was one of our most liked images on Facebook, 2015.  As said on Facebook: “Other photographers take the kind of photos you see on Pinterest. You take the kind you see in magazines.”

Jenna amid the chaos

The wedding day can, at times, be stressful. That is especially true before the ceremony when everyone is getting ready.

The VIP room at Hamilon’s 10 N. East in Jacksonville was a bit messy – and there was a wee flower girl running around somewhere – but Jenna was calm in her “Mrs. Grummel” sweatshirt with her veil in her hair.

One of my favorite moments from Jenna & Craig's wedding day.

Thoughtful gifts for the guys in your wedding

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!

Sisters – it’s all in the details

Here are a few fun details from Michelle & Jordan’s December 31, 2011 wedding in Springfield, Illinois!

The beautiful tiara Michelle decided on for her wedding day.

Michelle bought a headband with sparkles and white feathers. She decided to use another headband on her wedding day, but her sister Karen took the original one and replaced the white feathers with black ones – to make her bridesmaid dress. Good idea ladies! Looks fantastic!

Michelle's sister, Karen, gave a touching - and funny- toast to her sister and the couple.
Michelle & Karen's matching tattoos say "older sister" and "younger sister." And be sure to notice their matching pedicures!

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.
