Celebrating your wedding with your fur babies

Sometimes, we're so close with our animals that we consider them members of our families. So when celebrating your wedding with family, the family is incomplete unless we bring those furry babies with us! Isn't that right?

Mundelein Auditorium Wedding

There was one moment this Fall when all the droplets of rain poured down as did Grace and Paul's love. What followed were two very important words; words which put smiles on faces, turned eyes into glass, warmed up people's hearts. "I do," were the two words that Grace and Paul exchanged while looking deep

Hotel Arista Wedding

There is one little secret we need to tell you about. It's about how we judge great weddings... Basically, the more furry creatures - the better! We love, love, love when our couples bring their sweet bow-wows to the wedding (or at least to the photo shoot). These pups are always just as excited as

This handsome little guy is up on the blog again! Last time I saw him was last year when we did first birthday shoot for him. He's grown so much since then! And, boy oh boy, was he so much more active than a year ago. This little guy had so much energy, I couldn't

Westminster Chapel Wedding

Moving to Syracuse was like opening a door to the room you've never visited before. Lauren didn't know anyone there and adjustment sure took some time.

Richardson’s Canal House Wedding

Weddings are symbolic events; they symbolize two people's devotion for one another, their mutual love. They also create an opportunity for the families and friends to express their support and love through extraordinary deeds like helping organize the special day, or giving a heart-warming speech.

Talk about energy. Brian and Ashley have so much energy, I can't begin to describe it. They went through their wedding day with smiles lighting up their faces, adoring each other, and making sure that everyone was having a great day on their wedding day. There wasn't a moment where they frowned. And, as if

Hilton Chicago Wedding

Pride, joy, family: these are the three words we would use to describe Jaleesa and Byron's wedding day. So that moment when the tune changes, breaths pause, and a spark appears in the groom's eye; when everyone turns around, and everyone experiences their moment of awe. It's the moment when the beautiful bride and her
