Scott and Lisa went to the same high school, but didn’t meet until after college. I’ve known Lisa since middle school, and was so excited when she asked me to be her wedding photographer!
They had a romantic evening ceremony at the Willowbrook Ballroom, and since fall was in full swing and it was getting dark early, we did first look pictures at the beautiful Katherine Legge Memorial Park in Hinsdale, Illinois. It gave us plenty of time to capture all of the classic and fun bridal party pictures, in addition to a plethora of photos of the bride and groom. We ran ahead of schedule, and it gave time for Lisa to compose before the ceremony. Lisa commented, “The first look pictures were my absolute favorite and memorable photos that we took. It really helped to take in the moment we both first saw each other in our wedding garb. It was also very special to have those few quiet moments on such a fast-paced day! “.
The Anniversary dance is becoming popular amongst brides and grooms, where all the couples in the room compete to see who has been married the longest. Lisa said “…we also enjoyed the anniversary dance. We were able to sit down and take in all the details of the ballroom and see our family and friends dancing and having fun! “. Some of my favorite photos are of the bride, groom, and their guests sitting around the dance floor just in awe of the couples who have made it further each decade. It is definitely an awesome opportunity for newlyweds to walk around and say hello to their guests during this time! I’m so glad Lisa and Scott allowed me to capture this special day!
