Patrick C Haley Mansion Wedding

Whitney + Vince // Patrick C Haley Mansion


Whitney met Vince while he was working at DSW: Designer Shoe Warehouse. Whitney was looking for another perfect pair to compliment her wardrobe but the store didn’t have her size. Vince called around to other stores and was able to find what she needed. That first time they met, Vince claims he asked her out but says his co-workers were talking over him. Luckily, Vince would have a second chance. The shoes were shipped to Vince’s store. As luck would have it, Vince was in the store again at the exact moment Whitney arrived to try the new shoes on. Whitney must have made a good first impression. Vince noticed she wasn’t wearing her glasses during the second visit to his store. They struck up a conversation and Vince asked her out a second time. They went on their first date, which lasted approximately 4-6 hours, but no one really knows. Time flew by…they weren’t keeping track! Vince was eventually known as “the shoe guy” amongst Whitney’s friends.

The Patrick C. Haley Mansion in Joliet, Illinois was the perfect venue for Whitney and Vince’s vintage-themed wedding. While you watch their trailer, take note of Whitney’s dress, which was fashioned out of her Grandmother’s wedding gown. Shoes used with that same gown on her Grandmother’s wedding day (June 9, 1925) also make an appearance in this video trailer!

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
DJ: Spencer Lokken of Style Matters DJs
