A beautiful blue and pink wedding at Camelot Banquets in Hickory Hills, IL
The further into fall we get, the more beautiful these wedding shoots come out. The best part is getting the beautiful hints of oranges and reds with whatever green it is left. Melissa and Timothy’s wedding definitely gave us more than we could have asked for on a perfect sunny day.
We had the pleasure of doing Melissa and Timothy’s engagement shoot back in September so coming back together was fun. We started the day at Francis Xavier Church in La Grange, IL. We were astonished by how adorable and sophisticated the church looked it was a literal mini cathedral that just begged to be photographed.
Having worked with them previously, I distinctly remember that feeling of curiosity, where we just couldn’t wait to see what the big day would look like. Seeing Melissa come down the aisle left us speechless, and judging by Timothy’s face, well she made him smile and blush as he admired her coming towards him.
After the ceremony and some family portraits at church, we met with them at Woods Forest Preserve in Willow Springs where we got even more beautiful photos of Melissa. She has a subtle natural makeup look that shines through just perfectly with the sun. We were able to capture more intricate work of her dress. Of course, we had to get some photos of the handsome groom but most importantly we got that “love in the air” that we felt when first did their engagement shoot!
Capturing both of them together even gave us butterflies, it was as if the universe itself was yelling to the world that these two souls not only were meant for each other but had found one another! What can we say? We are total romantics.
Once done at the forest preserve it was time for some real fun. The Mr and Mrs jumped into a limo and went on their way to the venue. Camelot Banquets in Hickory Hills, IL is where we were to celebrate our couple, and what a celebration it was indeed!
There were beautiful chandeliers hung along with many mini ones on the walls. In the center of the floor was a huge very yummy looking three tier cake. Flower centerpieces decorated every table and the chopper scheme, blue and rose gold looked amazing.
What we really loved about the party is that we know that Melissa is Hispanic and Timothy is Polish, they both incorporated their heritage into their venue. There were cute mini conchas along with other Hispanic sweets and yummy polish sausage and other polish snacks.
Now the fun really started the minute the bridesmaids walked into the room in shark blow-up costumes and started hyping up the crowd, all while the groomsmen walked in with marshmallow face masks. The perfect way to get all guests up and dancing and cheering for Melissa and Timothy.
The night was definitely far from over but it there was one thing for certain, there was not one single person who wasn’t either dancing, laughing, or crying tears of joy. We enjoyed being a part of helping collect those memories and we hope you enjoy these pictures as much as we enjoyed taking them. Have a perfect Happily Ever After Melissa and Timothy!
