Well let’s be honest… I’ve been looking forward to this wedding all year long. Ever since I first met with Jori and her parents at my studio I knew we “clicked” and her wedding was going to be fantastic. Of course I hadn’t met Josh before yesterday, but as I expected… he was also amazing as were all of the family and friends involved in the wedding day. Everyone was fun-loving, outgoing and ready to celebrate together, and so that made telling their story so much fun! Add a helicopter getaway in there, and you have a recipe for a unique and glorious wedding day!
This was a “double” wedding for me as I did both photo and video for it, so stay tuned for some video shots of the wedding in near future… but for now here are some of photo highlights of the day!
Jori reading a letter from her groom-to-be, Josh
One of my favorite shots of the day!
And here’s Josh (seconds after I met him)
Their first time seeing each other…
Practicing their reception entrance “moves” …

Admiring the view while flying to the reception
And here’s the view. The reception was at Chateau Del Mar in Illinois. Note the large white building in the right-center of the image. That’s our destination for the reception!
Landing at the reception…
Future cover shot for a magazine… I hope? 🙂
<Happy Gilmore voice> “Somebody’s closer!”
Magazine cover shot #2. For a brides magazine, or a golf magazine? hmmm
This next shot is WAY better when its bigger. Everyone’s expressions are priceless. Click the image below to SEE IT LARGER!
The reception hall.
Some acrobatic flower girls trying to get the dancing started. Would anyone dance if the kids didn’t start things off? : )
And one last closing shot I took just before I left for the night.
Wow that was an amazing day… Thanks so much Jori and Josh for giving me the blessing and honor of spending your wedding day with you and allowing me to capture it on camera! You guys are the best! Congrats and may God bless your marriage!by
