Steve Tankersley of Springfield-area Rage Revolta Stage Lighting 217.883.2634 did a fantastic job setting the scene with white LED uplighting around the ballroom. The lighting really fit in with the diamonds and ice theme of the night. When you’re planning a wedding, at Hamilton’s Catering or any other wedding venue, look into upgrading the lighting. We always love the opportunity event lighting gives for beautiful, different photos for Central Illinois wedding photography.
Troy Armstrong was the DJ for the night. He’s recently relocated to Springfield from Metro East St. Louis and is working at 104.5 WFMB radio. He also provides DJ service for weddings.
Thanks to Duncan & Hoots Jewelers for donating a $100 gift card which Tiffany won for “Most Elaborate Mask.” I think it was mostly for matching the great dress she picked up from Girls in White Satin Bridal & Formal Wear.
Another company we’ve seen do a great job with event lighting and up-lighting when we are out doing Springfield Illinois wedding photography is Premiere Audio-Visual.
It’s that time of year! We have been fielding many inquiries for Bloomington wedding photography, Springfield wedding photography and all over Central Illinois wedding photography (Quincy, St. Louis and Chicago, too!) Please contact Tiffany through our Warmowski Photography web site or call/text her at 217.473.5517 to talk about your date.
Wanted to share photos from a wedding we photographed in Bloomington-Normal Illinois in the fall. Sarah & Billy met at Illinois State University. Between getting ready and taking portraits at Broadview Mansion and the ceremony and reception at Bloomington Holiday Inn (at the Bloomington airport) we stopped at ISU’s Stevenson Hall to get some campus photos into their book.
They had wanted their ceremony to be at Broadview Mansion, but the remains of Hurricane Isaac drifted into the area. It brought much-needed rain to the region, and suggested a baby name if they eventually have a son, but it wasn’t very conducive to an outdoor wedding!
One other note, the wedding event DJ was Faith Rinker of Glass Slipper Entertainment. She did a fantastic job, had great LED uplighting which made the ballroom at the Holiday Inn look fantastic, and she told Sarah & Billy’s “love story” at the end of dinner. Lots of family members said they appreciated her retelling the story of how the couple met, dated and decided to tie the knot.

Our bride and groom Margie & Ken are getting their photos today of our downtown Chicago wedding photography at the Ritz-Carlton (Four Seasons) last weekend. We wanted to share some detail shots and links to some of the great wedding vendors who helped make the evening so wonderful . . .
A string quartet from Rendezvous Music played contemporary music through the night, such as Viva La Vida by Cold Play and All You Need is Love by the Beatles. At one point I went over to Tiffany and joked it was like watching one of our favorite movies, Love Actually. Rendezvous Music provides live music for Chicago special events. Ken passed along the contact info for one of the performers, Katherine Hughes.
Margie wanted a white rose wedding bouquet, and the best she found was from Scot Steuber Florist & Greenhouses ezblooms.com in Chicago (773) 238-2013. They also decorated the event room at the Ritz-Carlton.
Also had fun photographing details of the intricate decorations around the hotel. The hotel also catered hors d’oeuvres and a wonderful dinner.
When we photograph weddings we pay special attention to the details of the day. You put so much effort into the extras that make the day, and we want to help you remember how great everything looked.

I already did a post on Meghan & Ryan and their dog, Bailey, in regard to their wedding stationary. I wanted to show you another way they included Bailey in their wedding day.
They used photos of Bailey as table numbers.
And, Rob, the matron-of-honor’s husband, took the same photo of them that we did (with Bailey outside of their home) but he took the digital file immediately to a nearby drugstore and had copies printed for their parents, which were put in frames on the head table – where the bride and groom and their parents sat. It was a fun surprise for their parents when they sat down to eat!
Bailey is four years old and she became a member of Meghan & Ryan’s family when they got her from another family that could no longer keep her. She is a sweet, well-mannered pup with obviously adoring ‘parents.’
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.

Tiffany’s in Bloomington at the Vrooman Mansion this weekend. The innkeepers of the Vrooman Mansion, Pam & Dana, are hosting a “Tea on the Titanic” and “Dinner on the Titanic” Saturday and another “Tea on the Titanic” on Sunday to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.
It’s been a fun day of photographing people dressed up in Edwardian clothing and enjoying meals as if they were first class passengers aboard the Titanic. The Tea Ladies are doing a Titanic-themed program with audience participation at each event at the Mansion this weekend. They are both informative and entertaining.
Those who enjoyed tea had the opportunity to get their photo taken. Dinner participants had a photo included in their ticket price.
“It’s such a perfect day! If we weren’t getting married today, we’d probably be out on the bike!” – Michelle Cox on the way to see her groom on their wedding day.
Jordan’s Harley appeared in their engagement photos (see the last photo in this post) so it wasn’t a surprise that is showed up on their wedding day, too! And Michelle pulled off her idea of surprising Jordan with a Harley groom’s cake.
About 60% of our couples opt to see each other before the ceremony to take photos before and to be able to go right to the reception following the ceremony. Michelle & Jordan decided to do their first look for their new years eve wedding at Washington Park in Springfield.
