Anne & Lee | Maggiano's Little Italy Wedding

There are many ways to tell a story, and so much a Christian wedding symbolizes. It was our hope to explore these themes in a far more dramatic way than we felt possible in a traditional trailer, and tell an engaging true love story filled with far more than meets the eye. From the interviews before the wedding for their ceremony photo slideshow to the final dances that wedding night we have had a blast working with this strong heartened and strong bodied couple. Seriously we wouldn't recommend messing with these two :)

Anne & Lee's incredible journey was definitely a wedding to remember. Their love and commitment to each other clearly reflects their strong Christian beliefs. We wish them nothing but the best in their marriage together. It is our hope and prayer that your godly example of biblical manhood and womanhood will be your offspring’s foundation for generations to come, an example that gives all the glory to God.

Rachel & Connor | Eagle Ridge Resort and Spa Wedding

We once again had the pleasure of returning to Galena, IL, this time for the perfect fall wedding of Rachel and Connor. The wedding took place at Church of St. Mary and the reception took place on the property of Eagle Ridge Resort in Galena. Eagle Ridge is a beautiful property that provides the perfect backdrop for your destination wedding. What I love most, in addition to the breathtakingly beautiful property, is that it is located near such great outdoor locations such as cabins and waterfalls that look amazing on camera.

 The wonderful setting and decor was topped only by a series of surprises that were planned for the bride and groom on their special day by the resort. Rachel's father John had put on a surprise performance song on the piano for the start of the father daughter dance. Little did Rachel know what her dad was planning it took the entire family by surprise. Overall such a beautiful wedding a great people to be around. Congratulations to the both of you!

It was our pleasure to be a part of Rachel and Connor’s wedding day on the ever-enchanting Eagle Ridge Resort.

Natalia & Eric | White Pines Golf Club Wedding

Natalia and Eric have such a sweet disposition. Their friends and families mean the world to them, and we learned quickly that they’re always putting others before themselves. We had met Natalia through Joanna one of her bridesmaids, so we were beyond thrilled when she asked us to shoot their wedding day. Big shout out to 3D The Band as they did a stunning job entertaining everyone that night. You guys "Rock!”  Well you know what, Natalia & Eric, you rock too.
