Chateau Del Mar Wedding in Hickory Hills, IL: Ellie & Shayna

Ellie & Shayna's wedding was amazing, we LOVE winter weddings; specially January ones. There's a sense of renewal and new beginnings everywhere, what a perfect way to start the year. These lovely ladies chose to get ready at their home but in separate rooms. Once they were ready, they had their first look in their living room.

We then headed to the forest preserve, hoping to catch the last bit of light and some snow. I'm glad they brought a blanket (their "something blue") it... was... cold, so worth it though. We wrapped up their photo portion of the day with a confetti cannon, yay.

Then it was off to Chateau Del Mar  for their ceremony and reception. Upon entrance, guests were asked to take seat and a shot as they waited for the brides to make their entrance. Their dads were beaming with pride as they walked their daughters down the aisle, their moms were tearing up, what a blessing it is to be a part of such a moment. After the wonderful vows, they kissed and left for a minute alone. 

All the parents gave a toast, all the dads got to dance. They had a double bouquet toss and our very own photo booth. The dancing and sweets were incredible. Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your day. Best wishes in your journey as a married couple, salud!
