Local Weddings

Dana + Matt


Dana and Matt were so much fun. Their love for life was definitely apparent throughout the day. The wedding ceremony took place at the beautiful Redeemer Lutheran Church in Hinsdale. We then headed over to Mayslake Peabody Estate in Oak Brook for an outdoor wedding cinematography session. Mayslake is a hidden gem. In this trailer, you’ll see Mayslake’s outdoor chapel, which is a replica of the Portiuncula Chapel in Assisi, Italy. What a wonderful setting!

All of the flowers were designed by Kristen Janes and her team at Kio Kreations in Naperville. We also wanted to thank the very talented Michael Rastall of Michael Rastall Photography for introducing us to such a wonderful couple. Dana and Matt, we hope you enjoy this trailer as a memory of your day.

Reception: Double Tree Chicago-Oak Brook

Colleen + Greg // Married in the Dark


The day started out sunny. On top of that, Greg wrote a beautiful note to Colleen, which set the tone for this trailer. After getting ready, Colleen and Greg saw each other for the first time at Prince Pond in Downers Grove, Illinois. It was a beautiful setting for such a nice moment in their lives. The skies then opened up buckets of rain and severe weather. The fire alarms went off just before their ceremony at St. Mary of Gostyn in Downers Grove. Because of the severe weather, all the power in Downers Grove also ended up going out. Everyone pitched in and lit candles to create a beautiful candle-lit wedding ceremony. Colleen and Greg then arrived at their reception (Alpine Banquets in Darien) to find that the power there was also out.

Through it all, Colleen and Greg were the best sports. They were always open and willing to do whatever we needed to get some great shots. As you grow together in your lives, we wish you the very best.
