Candice + Jonathan // Holy Name Cathedral + Union League Club


We had such a fun time filming Candice and Jonathan’s beautiful wedding day. They met while attending college at Marquette University. Jonathan enrolled in medical school and they were dating long distance for about three years. While traveling back and fourth, they wondered how things would go. Candice says that if you’re meant to be together, no distance will separate the two and you’ll find a way to make it work! Great advice and a great outcome for couples wondering if long distance relationships work!

All of the speeches at their reception were amazing but many eyes were watering after Candice’s father gave his speech. Check it out:

Katie + Josh // Pheasant Run Resort


Katie and Josh met while they were in college. Josh’s best friend said at the wedding that Josh was “head over heals” for Katie and couldn’t stop talking about her. So, he knew they’d probably marry one day…and he was right!

Katie and Josh’s wedding ceremony overlooked a beautiful pond at Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles and was officiated by Josh’s Dad, who is an ordained minister. We love when all of these special touches are included in wedding days!

We had their first look at the beautiful Japanese Tea Garden in the Fabyan Forest Preserve in Geneva, IL. Around there, we were able to get some really nice shots of nature. Katie and Josh rented out the whole garden for us to film in there…beautiful space!

We loved getting to know Katie and Josh and meeting their wonderful family and friends…not to mention, we were able to work alongside Michael Rastall Photography again!!
