Dan & Renee – Belvedere Banquets Wedding in Elk Grove Village, Illinois

I first met Dan and Renee on a Skype date since they are living in Phoenix and I’m in Chicago. I immediately fell in love with Renee’s Nashville accent and how perfect these two seemed for each other.

Dan and Renee first met in Phoenix when their jobs transferred them there, Dan from Chicago and Renee from Nashville. Almost a year and a half later, Dan proposed while on vacation in Disney. He took Renee on a gondola ride and left a message in a bottle in the water for Renee to find. I just love that story 🙂

They were married the end of May at Belvedere Banquets in Elk Grove Village and we lucked out with absolutely gorgeous weather. They had a very simple but very beautiful wedding and I was so honored to photograph their day.

I loved the staircase Renee walked down, it was a unique and very dramatic entrance.

Something apparently was in my eye during the Mother and Son dance because my eyes just wouldn’t stop watering 😉 totally made me think of my own boys and hoping we have this close of a relationship.

Bre and Glenn’s Military Wedding at Danada House – Wheaton, Illinois Wedding Photographer

Bre and Glenn were married on a brisk but very beautiful day and I am so happy they made a last minute decision to have their ceremony outside. Danada House is such a unique venue and provided a beautiful backdrop. It was an absolute honor to photograph their military wedding, especially being a wife to a veteran myself. This post has soo many images in it mainly because I had so many favorites I just couldn’t narrow them down! Bre and Glenn are such an awesome couple and have such an amazing family, this wedding was a blast to be a part of.
