When I walked into Hotel Orrington to a room full of muffins and open bottles of champagne, I knew that the day has started right in the Malone and Greene wedding!
Who said that you just need to capture the groom's first look at the bride?
If I did spend a little longer photographing your bride - you did not really mind, did you Jon? :)
Before we move into the busyness of the rest of the day - flowers! Oh the flowers - Four Finches did such an amazing job
As we get ready for the first look ...
Well, if the lovely bride was not enough, Jon got some attention from the lovely bridesmaids and he did not complain!
Jeremy did well as the best man too :)
The bridal party, the ring bearer, the flower girl and a clear fall day in downtown Evanston
The ceremony was at the beautiful St Mark's in Evanston.
The reception was at Prairie Moon - you would think an unlikely venue for a wedding but amazingly the local bar was transformed into the perfect place to celebrate the newly married couple
Weddings, I say, are a roller coaster ride of tears and smiles!
Wishing you many many many happy years of togetherness and love! And as long as you look at each other like that, I think we have a good thing going here! :)
