Sue + David // Montego Bay, Jamaica







Sue has been a friend of ours for many years, so we were honored and excited to be able to capture her wedding in Montego Bay, Jamaica! The wedding ceremony and reception took place at the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites on 10.10.10. Sue spent more than a year planning every detail of this wedding, and it all came together perfectly. The bright pinks and orange colors used for the flowers and programs look amazing against Sue's beautiful white dress, and the colorful backdrop of the resort. Sue and David are truly the perfect pair, and we are so glad we could capture these wonderful memories on film for them. Enjoy!

MaryRay + Frank







This was such a beautiful wedding in so many ways. As MaryRay got ready for her big day, there were so many smiles in the room. MaryRay and Frank’s wedding ceremony took place at the beautiful Holy Family Parish in Chicago. After they exchanged vows, their reception was held at the Modern Wing at The Art Museum in Chicago. One of the most memorable moments was when MaryRay’s Father handed over his favorite picture of MaryRay to Frank. You’ll have to watch the trailer for this tear-jerker. Congratulations MaryRay and Frank!

Because it was raining most of the morning, Lauren and Rebecca had their first look in the beautiful lobby of The Palmer House Hilton hotel in downtown Chicago. Their wedding ceremony was at the historic Holy Family Church in Chicago. The wedding reception followed at The Palmer House with music provided by Don Cagen Orchestra. Congratulations Rebecca and Lauren! We wish you many years of happiness together.

Katie + Shawn // A Vineyard Wedding






When we got an e-mail from Katie, asking if we could capture her wedding at a vineyard near St. Louis, Missouri, we were so excited. Vineyards are the perfect setting for weddings! Katie and Shawn started the day early with makeup and hair. After that, they had their first look in the vineyard. We then took a trolley around St. Louis to all the main attractions: the St. Louis Cardinals' Busch Stadium, the Gateway Arch Riverfront, the Soulard Farmers Market, and to top it all off...we were given unprecedented access to the Anheuser-Busch grounds and captured a few shots inside the Anheuser-Busch Clydesdale stable! This amazing day was complete with a beautiful wedding ceremony and reception on the grounds of Villa Antonio Winery in Hillsboro, Missouri. Congratulations, Katie and Shawn! May you have many years of happy memories!

Ashley + Brian // A Surprise Same Day Edit






Several months before Ashley and Brian's wedding, Ashley's parents approached Delack Media Group with an idea. They wanted us to create a Love Story + baby slideshow video to be shown at their wedding reception...with a twist. At the end of the video would be a surprise same day edit of Ashley and Brian's trailer. We loved the idea, so we worked for months planning the execution of this same day edit. With a team of talented crew members, we pulled it off. Ashley and Brian had no idea that we were working behind-the-scenes all day on editing their wedding trailer. Needless to say, when their wedding trailer was projected on a huge wall at Germania Place, you could see the look in their eyes...they were in awe. Laughs, tears, and plenty of applause from the wedding guests followed. The night was a huge success!
