Jordan + Jonathan | Silvercreek greenhouse wedding in Urbana

I really do love small, intimate weddings with lots of personal touches.  Silvercreek's private greenhouse has had some updates over the past couple years, including the renovation of the Boneyard Creek area directly beside and behind the restaurant.  It's a perfect scenario -- a beautiful, bright temperature-controlled greenhouse with an outdoor portrait area just outside of it.

Jordan + Jonathan gathered a top-notch team of vendors for their intimate affair, and had friends and family do some of the decorative touches -- the caricature on the program, the stickers on the Hershey's kisses, the miniature greenhouse shadowbox, and the photo clothesline. We started out with a cocktail hour, followed immediately by the ceremony, and then family portraits, and portraits of the couple. 

At the very end of the evening, I took the opportunity to play with my MagMod lights, and set up a couple of dramatic photos for the couple.  It was a fun night!  Congrats, Jordan + Jonathan!

Daphne + Shane | Intimate Silvercreek + Boneyard wedding


Daphne + Shane had brunch at Silvercreek restaurant in Urbana with their immediate families on Saturday morning. When I arrived, they were just finishing up some morning cocktails (more people should have Bloody Marys and mojitos for wedding brunch!). :) I did a few candids of them talking with family and ordering lunch, and then we headed out to just behind the restaurant for some portraits in the newly renovated Boneyard Creek area. It is beautiful!! And I could have photographed these two all day! I will definitely be heading back to the Boneyard for more portrait sessions soon! After that, we headed back up to the greenhouse for their ceremony and family pictures. Congrats, Daphne + Shane! Dancing Dog Eatery cake Urbana

Ashley + Brian | Urbana Silvercreek wedding photography


Ashley + Brian planned an intimate wedding ceremony and dinner at Silvercreek restaurant in Urbana. They chose to go out for an hour and a half or so prior to the ceremony for portraits of the two of them together. We had planned to meet at Meadowbrook Park in Urbana, but it was kind of rainy, overcast and really windy, so we went with Plan B instead. I suggested the Business Instructional Facility on campus because of the great architecture and ample window light. It was the perfect compromise and I am so happy with these images!
