Jamie and Mike–Oakbrook/Westin Lombard Wedding video- Harry Carey’s

Oakbrook/Lombard, IL

Mike and Jamie. Of all their friends, it seems they were the last to make the decision to walk down the aisle. Yet their patience paid off. Carefully planned and executed, Mike and Jamie’s wedding day reflected the care and time they take with each other. Prep began in Oakbrook for the ladies and in Lombard for the guys (whatever prep guys need, right?). Gorgeous fall weather permitted some fantastic cityscapes to be captured, with Jamie decked out in her wedding finery, on the balcony of her room. Then shuttles brought guests and wedding party alike downtown to St. Alphonsus Church, the childhood parish and current church for Jamie and Mike. After some iconic photo stops including Lincoln Park Zoo and the Kinzie St. Bridge, all returned to Harry Carey’s at the Westin Lombard for a classy reception to celebrate Mike and Jamie’s beginning as a married couple. Throughout all the activity and travel, every time our cameras turned on Mike and Jamie, they only had eyes for each other. The joy of the day beamed from both of them. As the stars came out and we spent a few extra minutes outside grabbing some final shots, Mike repeatedly dipped and kissed his bride, and the smile on both their faces said it all: this is perfect. This is what we waited for.
