One More Set of Wedding Photos

October 2nd, 2017

I know you love seeing photos, so here is one more set from a recent wedding reception.  The couple were married earlier in the year, with just their families attending in their home.  This was the big reception they threw to celebrate after the fact.  And it was a terrific party!

The reception was at The Clubhouse at Dolphin Lake in Homewood, where the in-house caterer is Wiley’s Grill.  Roses are Red Flower Boutique provided the floral displays.  The Cover Girls provided very popular entertainment (dancing violinists!).  I hope to be able to share professional photos from GodzRoqk Designs Photography in a few weeks, and maybe even some video from Media in Black.  These are my photos taken at the event.

Nature Museum Wedding Photos

September 25th, 2017

This was a terrific recent wedding at the Notebaert Nature Museum.  The ceremony was outdoors in the courtyard, but, unfortunately, the weather was too threatening to have dinner on the terrace.  It was all set up, but the caterer had to bring it indoors, after all.  That’s why you’ll see tables set up both outdoors and in.  Never a dull moment!

Lakefront Wedding Photos!

September 11th, 2017

Did I promise you more photos from recent weddings?  These are just the ones I took myself from one of my recent weddings.  Professional photos will follow when I can get them.

I must confess that I loved this wedding.  It felt so authentic.  Everything the couple did reflected their personalities and their relationship.  It was all beautiful.  It was also completely unique.

The single most unusual thing about the wedding was the amount of hand-crafting that went into it.  Both bride and groom are crafty people.  The bride knits, so she made the gorgeous shawl you will see below.  The groom crochets, so not only did he make the bride’s bouquet out of crocheted flowers; he also crocheted all the flowers for the table decorations.  Take a look for yourself!

Summer Weddings!

Sorry for the total radio silence these last few weeks.  I’ve been working on some very wonderful weddings, each of them very different from the others.  Here are some teaser photos for your viewing pleasure.  I’ll have the full set of the photos I took for each event very soon.  Enjoy!
