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.
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.
Alissa & Brandon’s wedding photos have been added to our web page as one of our sample weddings. Their ceremony was at Our Saviour Church and reception at Hamilton’s 110 North East. We especially had fun with the couple and their wedding party taking outdoor portraits at the house of Alissa’s sister in rural Jacksonville.

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.
Amber and Ryan were married July 4th, 2015 in Jacksonville. Ceremony at Annie Merner Chapel, MacMurray College; reception at Hamilton’s 110 North East. Wedding dress from Girls In White Satin Bridal and Formal Wear of Jacksonville, Illinois.

Cake by Susan Park, flowers by Wendy Hillyer, both of Rushville.
We love working with Teri and the staff at Buena Vista Farms. Teri takes amazing care of her brides, making sure every detail has been attended to. She has an endless collection of decor that will fit any theme or color scheme.
The outdoor spaces are perfect for the ceremony and offer many different backdrops for portraits. The tent is an elegant setting for the reception and the different buildings on site provide spaces for everything you could need including rehearsal dinner, salon space, places to getting ready as well as cabins for you and your guests to spend the night – really the whole weekend.
We have had great experiences photographing at Buena Vista Farms and we congratulate them on their well-deserved recognition!
