Katie & Tony – Summer Mesón Sabika Wedding

This was my first Meson Sabika wedding and I fell in love with this venue! Beautiful outside space for a ceremony complete with a fountain and flowers. Inside the reception area is just as beautiful and has romantic ambient lighting.

I have known Katie for many, many years so it was extra special for me to photograph her wedding. It’s completely clear when you spend any amount of time with Katie and Tony that they are madly in love. You can see it in the way they look at each other and feel it in the emotions they bring out in each other.

Venue // Mesón Sabika

Flowers // Jane’s Blue Iris

Hair // Christina Marie

Makeup // Brianna Camille Artistry

DJ // Your Night Productions

They chose to have their First Look in their own backyard. I always love when couples choose to have a First Look because it feels like time stops for just a few minutes and it’s just the two of them in the moment of realizing they are about to be married. The emotions I capture in this privacy feel more pure, raw, and beautiful. This was one of the sweetest First Looks I have had the honor of photographing.2015-08-30_0022

It was an absolutely beautiful wedding on a day that ended up being really beautiful as well, even with the small rain shower (downpour) we encountered on the way to Cantigny Park for some photos before the wedding.

I absolutely LOVED the fabulous red heels she wore, especially to use as a background for a ring shot.
