Julianna and Thomas

Julianna came all the way over from New York to Chicago to Marry Thomas amongst friends and family. I absolutely loved her personality! We started the day off at the hotel where both the bride and groom were getting ready.

After getting ready, we headed out for the Wilder Mansion, a one of a kind venue where all the events were planned. I absolutely loved shooting here!

The ceremony was held out doors, right in front of the mansion where a warm spring breeze made us all feel at ease and ready to celebrate Julianna and Thomas' wedding.

After the ceremony, it was time for toasts. This was another unique aspect of the wedding in that everyone was gathered around the couple like a big family. I loved the atmosphere was able to capture some great moments!

And before I knew it, it was time for the wedding reception to begin. It felt just like a big family get together with everyone talking and greeting each other over hors d'oeuvres, only with more dancing!
