Gaige’s Concierge Service on Hiatus

In our blog we previously mentioned the services of Gaige’s Concierge Service. Sonny was available on wedding days to do whatever tasks needed at a very reasonable rate.

We are sad to report that Sonny had a heart attack, and he’s putting his business on hold while in recovery. He sent a note of thanks for past work. Our prayers go out to Sonny for a return to health.

Mark and Susan wanted their daughter to have a beautiful, outdoor wedding at their home in Bradfordton/rural Springfield, Illinois. Amy and Brad live in Las Vegas, so help in planning and organizing a wedding back home was much appreciated.

The wedding ceremony was held right next to the home, beneath a large oak tree which provided much-needed shade on a warm June day. After the ceremony the bride and groom did outdoor portraits in the wooded yard. The wedding reception was in a tent beyond the pool. And DJ and dancing were in another, smaller tent next to the home.

Chairs, supplies, etc. provided by Signature Event Rentals (on Facebook).

Lizzie & Brandon chose to have their wedding in Las Vegas, but brought the party home to all their friends who couldn’t make the trip with a reception at The Elks Lodge in Jacksonville.

Focus of the night was a live performance by the St. Louis-area band the Well Hungarians (also on Facebook), with plenty of dancing. Their cake had a Las Vegas sign, to recognize their wedding ceremony earlier in the year. The night also featured speeches and toasts by family, best man and maid of honor.

Continuing on Amy & Ryan’s wedding story, their reception at the Hoogland Center for the Arts (also Hoogland Center for the Arts on Facebook, 420 South 6th Street, Springfield, IL 62701) featured the great live wedding band Fun DMC (also Fun DMC on Facebook).

Band members had their set put together even before the afternoon wedding, and provided audio for the wedding service. Later when guests entered the room for the reception, the stage was dominated by a large, black screen with points of LED lights. After dinner events started with first dances, then quickly moved into the night’s performance by Fun DMC.

The bride and groom were surprised with a balloon drop during a performance of Nena’s 99 Luftballons. Amy and Ryan were really happy with the band, and pass on their recommendations. See a video of one of Fun DMC’s mashups.

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).

WeddingWire review by June & Brandon — Steve and Tiffany beautifully captured our wedding and were there for every moment. They arrived early and stayed until the end, and it’s clear that they love their jobs. They are pros with years of experience — they come prepared, can work with any location and handle everything with ease. From portraits to photojournalism, they can give directions or work unobtrusively when needed. Some of our relatives and friends told us they were impressed with the Warmowskis and their professionalism and dedication — and they’re great people! They spent time with us before our wedding to create the best photo package for our needs. After our wedding, they helped us select images and worked with the printer to make sure our photo album was exactly what we wanted. When we look at the amazing photographs of our wedding, we’re so happy that we chose the Warmowskis!

Tiffany helped SO much besides taking pictures it was unreal.

Steve was amazing with the boys and hanging out like one of the guys and getting great getting ready moments with everyone. Together they are a dream team. They both made our day run smoothly and everything was flawless. I couldn't dream of having anyone else there on our wedding day!
