WELCOME! Today is the official launch day of my BLOG! So excited to share all the wedding's I have photographed in 2014 so far (4 of them to be exact with another one this weekend).
First wedding up is Sean & Erin's. I knew Sean from high school, and when I first met Erin, she was such a sweetheart, granted, we both had the same name, so that was even better. We met at a local Tinley Park Starbucks, and when they told me where they were going to be getting married, The Danada House, I was so jealous. That was one of the first places I had looked at last year when I was looking at wedding venues to get married at, simply because it is GORGEOUS! After we went our seperate ways that night, we had such great conversation and going through packages, wedding albums samples, Sean said more then once, "I have to say again that I was very impressed when we met." That was an amazing compliment and truly appreciated hearing those words from a fellow classmate. Needless to say they booked with me, and their wedding was a true love story.
Erin and her bridesmaids and the Mother of the Bride got ready at Erin & Sean's house in Naperville. I arrived and everything was running on schedule. I started working on all the details, Rings: David Nelson Jewelers, Wedding Dress from Wolsfelt's Bridal, Bridesmaids Dresses from David's Bridal.
Sean & his groomsmen (brothers & future brother in law) got ready at Sheraton Lisle Hotel. Groom & Groomsmen were wearing suits from Formerly Modern.
Once we made our way to the Danada House where the ceremony & reception was going to take place, Erin finished up getting ready and now it was time to put on her beautiful dress.
The Father of the Bride was waiting behind the white French doors to see his daughter, the bride for the first time.
And now, the FIRST LOOK is about to happen. Sean & Erin had invisioned how they wanted to do their first look, utilizing the beautiful staircase in the front hall.
Sure enough, after the bride and groom have an emtional first look, we head outside too take bridal party photos. Mother nature at it's finest, decided it wanted to bless the bride and groom with rain showers for good luck at this moment. We all headed back inside and finished up photos prior to ceremony.
Guests started to arrived and take their seats for the ceremony.
After stealing the bride and groom away for some photos during cocktail hour, the themed reception, Candlight Spring began, just as the sun was setting.
