Aubrey & Dennis had a stunning elegant wedding at the Fountain Blue Banquets & Conference Center in Des Plaines, Illinois. I adore the emerald green and gold details that were spread throughout everything. Her bouquet and shoes were GORGEOUS! She looked like a princess, and the kids were locked to her hip during the reception as you can see in these adorable photos. Aubrey’s bestie recited a sick rap during her speech, which was definitely a new one in my book. I had such a fun time photographing this couple, because they are beautiful from the inside out!Videography : Vanilla Video Photobooth: Live Prints Media Flowers: Flowerville Dress: Shelley’s Bridal Couture Bridesmaids Dresses: David’s Bridal Shoes: Marc DeFang DJ: That’s Entertainment Uplighting: Atmosphere Events Group LLC Invitations: Carlton Craft Cake: Central Continental Bakery
Jason and Lauren had a beautiful winter wedding. I adore the royal blue colors and all of the glitter incorporated into the details. The ceremony was at St. John Lutheran Church in Joliet, Illinois. The reception at Two Brothers Roundhouse in Aurora, Illinois which just glistened with all of the beautiful lights! Two Brothers Roundhouse is really a unique venue and is a historic landmark. It is a huge round brewery with a courtyard in the center. We photographed Jason & Lauren’s engagement photos there in the fall, and it was so cool to go back during a different season. The inside has such a rustic look, a perfect spot for inside photos when it’s so cold outside! It was truly beautiful ceremony and reception and I am so honored you two let me capture this day for you!
Nathan and Julie had a winter fairytale wedding on January 18 at St. John of the Cross in Western Springs, and a stunning reception at the Victoria Rosemont. I have known Julie from our high school gymnastics team, so this wedding was extra special to me. I teared up as she got dressed, teared up again when her dad saw her for the first time, and again during the ceremony. Thank god for waterproof mascara. There was a beautiful snowfall all day, so we captured stunning photos of the bride and groom outside in the snow. Along with old high school friends, Julie was surrounded by her friends from college- where Nate and her met, in the circus. Yes, you read that correctly! And to make the night even sweeter Julie was lifted into the air on the dance floor by old fraternity brother :) From the bride: “My favorite moment of the day was when I was standing arm and arm with my dad looking down the aisle. Doing my best to stay composed, I was overwhelmed with happiness as I saw Nathan at the altar with our closest friends on either side.” DJ & Uplighting: Tone Productions Hair & Make-up: Anthony Valentino Bridal gown & bridesmaid dresses: House of Brides Shoes: Volatile Tuxedos: Steve’s Formal Wear Flowers: Chirstopher Mark Fine Flowers & Gifts Limo: A Stars Limo Reception Venue: Victoria Rosemont Church: St. John of the Cross Photobooth: Concept One Jewelry: Nadri Jewelry
Dan and Melanie celebrated their wedding on New Years Eve at DiNolfo’s Banquet Hall in Mokena, Illinois, and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect winter day. For Chicago’s weather, you NEVER know what you are going to get. Luckily we had a beautiful snowfall which made for breathtaking photos. Dan and Melanie were childhood friends, secretly crushing on each other for most of their childhood. They both grew up in the small town of Manhattan Illinois, and as the bride put it “It wasn’t until 2013 in the fall where timing finally brought us together to give our relationship a chance. We dated for a few months before we let our families know. Although we knew they would be extremely excited for us, we wanted to be certain that it was a sure thing. Ever since, we have had the support and love from all of our friends and family because everyone wanted to see us together!” This is the second Boseo wedding I have had the privilege to photograph, and let me tell you all of the Boseo boys landed gorgeous women! Congrats Melanie & Dan!

With it being so cold outside at the end of December, I took Lisa & Andrew to the Joliet Birdhaven Greenhouse in Joliet Illinois for some beautiful indoor photos. It was filled with poinsettia’s and holiday lights, and we faced the cold for a little bit to get some must have outdoor shots. Lisa has a beautiful infectious smile, Andrew is one lucky guy!!
