Liz and Jeremy

Liz and Jeremy’s reception was held at Riverside in Geneva! Which is such a lovely venue and the ceremony outdoors in the courtyard was just perfect! Though we thought it may rain a bit, it held off and was awesome! The dance party though was completely crazy and one of the best that I’ve seen!

Michelle and Neil

I haven’t done a July 4th wedding in a few years so it was a lot of fun shooting Michelle and Neil’s! They are such a laid back couple and just wanted to have a good time and they did! We were able to get in pictures before and then went to Promontory Point for the ceremony! It was such a beautiful day and not hot at all! The weather really was amazing! and the view was pretty awesome too!

Robert and Nina

This wedding was a blast!  I had so much fun and Robert and Nina and their families were just the sweetest!   And there was ice cream so it was pretty amazing!   And I just love Byron Colby Barn in Grayslake!  It’s such a wonderful venue!

Stephanie and Derek

Stephanie and Derek’s wedding was just lovely and I finally got to shoot a wedding at Hotel Arista in Naperville!  I’ve always loved that hotel since the built it and have done a few boudoir sessions there!  The rooms are so gorgeous and make taking pictures easy!  We headed to Cantigny after the ceremony and it was just as lovely!  Though a bit hot we survived and got some gorgeous pictures too!

Michelle and Adam

I’m so excited for these pictures too!  Michelle is a college friend and she contacted me about photographing her wedding!  Her and Adam are really perfect for each other and it’s so awesome to see them so happy with one another!  And the great stories I learned about both of them!  I also got to see a lot of our friends that I’m only in touch with on facebook!  So it was nice to chat with them in between things! And the dancing was pretty amazing too!
