Family farm? Check. Apple pie for a wedding cake? Check. Blue jeans and cowboy boots? Check, check. I could go on and on about all of the beautiful details that made up Jenny and TJ’s gorgeous wedding at his grandfather’s farm in Rochester, Illinois but it might be better to just watch their film. I had looked forward to this wedding since my first conversation with them, I knew this one was going to be unlike any other that we’ve filmed. It was packed full of family and story and some of the best vows I have ever heard. Beyond all of the stunning details that made up their day, Jenny and TJ are two of the most down to earth people I’ve known and had the pleasure of working with. You might remember their Same Day Edit that premiered during their wedding reception. I had been chomping at the bit to edit their full film and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did creating it.
We’re so excited to add another feature to our offerings! The Slow Motion Video Booth is an incredible experience for you and your guests. We bring it all, the fun backdrop, a plethora of props, and of course the camera. All you have to do is bring the people looking for a great time! With this new feature, you can choose photographs, slow-motion video, or you can have BOTH! You don’t have to choose us to film your wedding to have this at your wedding. Details are coming soon, but if you have any questions about this awesome new feature, please contact us. In the meantime, check it out! This is one we did at The Rusty Ball over the weekend, everyone had a blast!
This was beyond perfection, I’m not sure there are words to accurately describe how amazing this wedding really is. If I had to pick one, it would be ‘personal’. This was one of the most personal weddings we’ve ever filmed. The location was TJ’s grandfather’s farm in Rochester, Illinois, just outside of Springfield. He had the wine made for the wedding in Napa, Jenny’s sister is also a floral designer and did all of the florals and designs. TJ is the man! He went into Jenny’s suite and put post-it notes with awesome messages all over the walls. There wasn’t a wedding cake, instead they cut and served apple pie, very fitting for the location and it’s also Jenny’s favorite. On top of all of that, they wrote their own vows, some of the best I’ve ever heard. If that wasn’t enough, this might have been the most incredible family I’ve worked with. I didn’t get to meet them until the day before the wedding but we clicked as if we had known each other for much longer and that really helped create a great energy for their wedding day. It was an awesome day and one we will never forget. We really had so much fun with them and the room exploded when their Same Day Edit played and I wanted to share it with you.
Since meeting Robb and Ashley several months ago, I have been looking forward to their wedding like a child looks forward to Disney. I knew this one would be a blast and they didn’t disappoint! Our weekend with them started at their amazing rehearsal Friday night which gave a glimpse of the awesomeness that would be coming up the next night. They were non-stop fun the whole time, then you add 300 of their closest friends and family and you’ve got an incredible event that everyone will be talking about for quite a while. They really thought of it all, a ceremony in the round, Orange Leaf at the reception, an amazing band and a great team I was honored to be a part of. Enjoy their Same Day Edit, which played at their Reception!
What a fantastic day for a wedding! A beautiful couple, an amazing venue, and an incredibly fun bridal party, all came together to help make Katie and Mickey’s wedding one for the record books. Yeah, it may have rained a little or a lot, but that didn’t change their contagious energy. They were so much fun to work with and gave us so much to work with without even trying. It truly was a spectacular event and I’m honored to have been a part of it all. Check out their Same Day Edit, which played during dinner at their reception!
What a blast! We had so much fun with Megan, Rob and their families and guests, they really made it so easy for us. Their day was filled with so much personality and as if that wasn’t enough, the wedding was incredibly stunning and the weather was amazing. Enjoy their Same Day Edit, which played during dinner at their wedding reception!
Wedding Day Team:
You simply couldn’t ask for a better day to get married. The weather was more than perfect, the energy and love that Vanessa and Kevin share for each other is incredibly obvious to anyone watching, and we had an amazing team to work with. It all came together to create one of the greatest experiences we’ve ever had at a wedding. When they told me they wanted their Same Day Edit to play on the scoreboard at Great American Ballpark, I couldn’t believe it and it was difficult to not show how incredibly excited I was. We really had so much fun with everyone and the viewing and reaction for their Same Day Edit is something I’ll never forget. Many, many thanks to Kelly and Brian at Blue Canister Studios for helping out with this one and making it all come together. Enjoy Vanessa and Kevin’s Same Day Edit!
I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding to end 2012. Alicia and Dan’s wedding was already incredible in every way possible but the fact that it was also a New Year’s Eve celebration made it so much more incredible. Two amazing people surrounded by their closest friends and family definitely made this wedding one for the record books. When I met Dan at the barber shop in the morning, I knew it was going to be a great day. Dan wanted to go through a bit of a transformation for his wedding so a few months ago, he decided to grow a full beard and stop cutting his hair. Then on his wedding day he would get a hair cut and also get a straight razor shave with the rest of the guys. Very cool! Meanwhile Alicia and her bridesmaids were having the time of their lives in the suite getting ready for the wedding. A few weeks ago, they asked if we could play the Same Day Edit right before midnight and include a countdown that would end at midnight, to make it even more special. No pressure, right? We had a blast with them and they really made it so easy for us to make everything happen. At exactly 11:56:30, I pushed play and all the guests were on the dance floor watching their film on two large projection screens. At the end, it had turned midnight and two large confetti bombs filled the air with golden confetti. It was stunning and I’m incredibly honored to have been a part of a team and a part of Alicia and Dan’s wedding. Enjoy their Same Day Edit!
With such a fantastic couple on an unseasonably warm day and to be a part of such an incredible team, it would be really difficult to find a better day for a wedding. Shannon and Benji’s wedding was nothing short of perfect in every way. A beautiful couple, Spanish vows, stunning venues, this wedding really had it all. We had so much fun with them throughout the day and were really excited to premier their Same Day Edit during dinner at the stunning Ohio Statehouse.

I have been working with Eric for a few years with our productions for Hoxworth Blood Center and was SUPER pumped when he contacted me about filming his wedding. It sounded like it was going to be an amazing event and it exceeded my expectations. The location was incredible, a gorgeous Fall day in Cincinnati with the city for a backdrop. It would be difficult to get any better, but it did! The reception was as stunning as the ceremony and once The Rusty Griswolds took over, it was a giant party. We had a blast working with them to create their Same Day Edit which played at their wedding reception. Everyone loved it! Enjoy!
