Everyone had a blast getting ready in the stunning bridal suite of the Hilton Garden Inn. This bride made sure we had a suite complete with huge windows for amazing natural light portraits as well as a ton of room to be able to move around and get different looks in their photos. I know one little girl that loved jumping up and down on that big bed! Having good light and a lot of it really can make all the difference in the world when it comes to bridal portraits before the wedding. Jill really paid attention to all of those important details when choosing where to start her fairytale day.
Derek & Jill tied the knot at St. John the Baptist Church in Winfield this past Saturday. Father Keith was a total rockstar because at the very end of the ceremony, he allowed me to step up on the alter so I could photograph the kiss with the entire congregation behind the happy couple in the picture. I've only gotten to do this twice in my entire 18 year career and I was quite giddy! I'd say it turned out to be quite the memorable kiss!
On to the reception at the gorgeous and rustic Abbey Farms in Aurora, IL. This reception took place in a fabulous barn in the middle of a Christmas Tree Farm. Did I mention they took us on a hayride to all the best portrait locations on the property? We had so much fun. Everybody danced the night away and enjoyed the fireplace on the outdoor patio. I was sad to leave the party at the end of the night, but was anxious to get home and start working on their wedding portraits. Enjoy their first look.
