Autumn and Chris | Wheeling Wedding

My last local wedding of 2017! I've known this girl for years! She is the one responsible for my amazing various hair colors. =) So thankful that for one day, it did not rain. We just had to brave the cold. But we had hand warmers, and make good use of our time to keep everyone from becoming icicles. Autumn's entire wedding took place at the Westin in Wheeling. A mere 5min from my home. They have an amazing little pond for photos that leads into a forest preserve. Perfect! Here is a brief sampling from their gorgeous wedding day.

Rhonda and Eric get married.

SO excited that I needed to post some pics asap of Rhonda and Eric's wedding. =) I've known Rhonda since grade school. And most of her bridesmaids too! Some I've photographed their weddings and some their families. So I knew this wedding would be so much fun. For mid-november, we got pretty lucky. The rain held off and the temps were doable. I think we got some great shots! Rhonda, you looked absolutely beautiful. I'm so happy for you. Thank you so much for sharing this day with me. I def need to give a shout out to Rose who was responsible for the gorgeous flowers! Artful Rose is her company.

Alexis and Alex get married.

Such a beautiful wedding. And the weather was amazing! We started off with the ladies getting ready at the Kisbac residence and the men at the Renaissance Hotel. Love love LOVE Alexis's dress. It was Oscar de la Renta. Gorgeous! This was also my first experience with a Romanian ceremony which was so beautiful! The officiants actually wanted me to get right up in there for photos. It was amazing! Wedding party photos were at the most perfect time of day with beautiful light. We finished up with an amazing reception a the Renaissance Hotel in Schaumburg.
