There tends to be a common theme with weddings, stress. I did not see any of that while photographing Jennie and Damon’s wedding day. Jennie was calm, collected, and looked so stunning and Damon was smiling so big every time he laid eyes on her. They started the day with a first look together after getting ready. The big windows in Oakbrook Church were the perfect backdrop for them to see each other for the first time that day. We could see their excitement and built off their energy which led to a great day shooting. After their first look and portraits outdoors they were married in an emotional and beautiful ceremony. After their first kiss we started in on the reception in the church’s recreation room catered by Windmill Grill with a gorgeous (and delicious!) wedding cake made by a family friend. Since everything was so laid back and we had so much time I experimented a little with the fairy lights during their first dance and had so much fun shooting the crazy dance party that followed. We ended the night with portraits as the sun was setting on the grounds of the church and bid them farewell with their family and friends. We felt so lucky all day to be able to capture this amazing wedding and meet all the wonderful people who were involved. Thank you Jennie and Damon for having us along, we are so grateful and wish you the best of luck together!
