Alyssa + Tom // St. Ita Church + Mid America Club Chicago


They say there’s nothing like a mother’s love for her daughter. I definitely found that to be the case at Alyssa and Tom’s wedding. When I first arrived, I noticed all the little details that Alyssa put into her bridal preps…customized cups/shirts/bags for all her bridesmaids, customized hangers for all the bridal party dresses, customized signs…the list goes on. Alyssa admitted she frequently checked Pinterest for ideas. While I was looking at all these nice touches Alyssa assembled for me to film, I saw her mom taking everything in with what might have been a small tear. I pulled Alyssa’s mom aside and what transpired was a real conversation about the stages of life and giving away your daughter to someone she loves. This interview immediately became the focal point in the edit. We hope you enjoy this story as much as we enjoyed filming it!!

Mokena Orland Park Wedding Video

Emily + Jimmy // Mokena + Orland Park


We love morning letters. When I got married, my wife and I wrote notes to each other the morning of our wedding. It was a nice, sentimental way to let the other person know how you feel about them right before you walk down the aisle. Emily + Jimmy exchanged two notes prior to their vows-one during their morning preps and another right before the ceremony. We’ve filmed some amazing morning letters….and some amazing gifts that have gone with them. Emily + Jimmy’s was no exception. One of the gifts Emily gave Jimmy was a Q&A book. One of the questions was: “If Hollywood made a reality show about us, it would be called…” Emily answered it by saying, “Teacher Falls for a Cop”, which referred to their careers.

Emily and Jimmy have huge hearts and it showed throughout their day. This was the first time we filmed a “First Look” without the bride and groom actually seeing each other. Emily came to us with this idea. She wanted to hold Jimmy’s hand without breaking the tradition of seeing each other on the day of their wedding before the ceremony. So, we coordinated for the two of them to hold hands around the corner in the basement of St. Mary’s Catholic Church (Mokena, Ilinois). We did an awesome photo tour with Jolie Images around the Orland Park train station. The evening concluded with dancing by DJ Dino G at Crystal Tree Country Club (Orland Park, Illinois). Bridal makeup by Patricia Daidone with The Costmetic Ninja.
