Photographer’s Notes: Anna and Bobby’s wedding was held on a cool, but sunny day in November. Right after a week’s worth of cold, snow and down right, winter weather. The day started with Anna at the historic, Hotel Orrington, right downtown in Evanston, Illinois. After some getting ready pictures, we headed to the hotel mezzanine level for the couple’s intimate first look. After some hugs and tears, we headed outside and around Evanston for their couple and wedding party pictures. Since the sun was shining, we headed to the nearby lakefront to take advantage of the beautiful winter light. Afterwards, we headed to the ceremony space, Alice Millar Chapel, and took a few pictures right outside the chapel courtyard.
When the ceremony began, I was reminded of how much I love Alice Millar Chapel. The blue stained glass and the huge organ, are just some of the reasons why this chapel offers so many beautiful options for pictures. The ceremony was very emotional and very heartfelt with lovely speeches from the family relatives and officiant. Afterwards, we headed to the couple’s favorite neighborhood brewery, Temperance Brewery, for some beers and photos. Then, it was on to the venue for a night of fun dancing, tearful speeches and some of the best cake ever! Thanks to the couple for such a wonderful day! Congrats to you both.
