The Tough Stuff

To quote Mark Twain, “In the spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.”

While I’m convinced he must have been referring to a midwestern spring day, Melissa and Brandon’s wedding day was mainly one: rain! 😂

That brings me to another famous belief; rain on your wedding day is good luck, and I see a very lucky future for these two!

Even with the rain (which really did make for an extraordinary day and I’m sure will be a story for a lifetime!), Melissa and Brandon’s wedding day was wonderful! Both their ceremony and reception were held at Copper Dock Winery, located in rural Pocahontas, Illinois.

If you haven’t been there yet, we recommend visiting. You might even get a glimpse of the swans!

Melissa and Brandon continued with their plan to hold the ceremony outdoors and it turned out awesome 💕. The rain let up just in time for outdoor photos!

Congrats to Melissa and Brandon! We’re so happy to have been a part of your wedding day and are certain the rain will bring more smiles, laughs, and happy tears in all of your years to come! ☺️

A Simple But Great Love

We were excited for this day since our first meeting with Elisabeth and Nick. The conversation was easy and our creative ideas aligned. Jimmy and I also love winter weddings, especially when they include winter decor and all of the holiday feels!

The venue they chose, the Stone House of St. Charles, was perfectly quaint and cozy. It was an excellent pick for an all day venue, from wedding prep to wrapping up the reception. Fingers crossed for another chance to film there again, because it was that awesome!

We hope you enjoyed Elisabeth and Nick’s wedding highlight, as much as we enjoyed making it!

Side By Side

Boy, oh boy! Ashley and Ryan’s wedding day was truly the best!

While many people see snow and groan, we couldn't wait to get out in it and start filming 🎥❄️☃️. Although they probably didn’t know it at the time, Ashley and Ryan chose the perfect venue to capture the winter wonderland atmosphere.

They both got ready at the Fishermen’s Inn, located just outside of Chicago. After a brief departure for the ceremony, they headed back for their reception. This venue really embraces the rustic elegance that is trending in the wedding industry. If that’s the look you’re searching for, check out it out. You won’t be dissapointed!

Without further ado, I give you Ashley and Ryan’s winter wedding film.
