As we get closer to the end of the year, we can't help but feel so happy and grateful for all the brides and grooms we have worked with. Especially those who have had to sacrifice so much due to the pandemic.
Ramona and Jose have been so incredibly patient and we were so excited to hear they had set their date once again and were ready to start their new chapter in their lives.
With both Ramona and Jose having been together for 15 years we knew this wedding was going to be absolutely beautiful.
We met Ramona and Jose at Veterans Park in Romeoville, Il to get some portraits done. Our Bride decided she wanted to do a "first look" shoot. Ramona's dress was hard not to fall in love with, the intricate lacework and how it accentuated our bride was magnificent. When Jose turned to look at the love of his life we knew he was loving the dress as much as we were with how he simply looked at her.
The bridal court met us at Veterans Park as well for some pictures. We loved working this particular day as it was sunny and the natural light with the greenery in the background made for some amazing photos.
After the photos, we made our way to Saint Anderson church for a beautiful ceremony.
Since we had our portraits done beforehand, we immediately proceeded to make our way to the venue. Ramona and Jose picked Manzo's Banquet Hall as their venue for their elegance. A beautiful welcome sign leads the way for us and all their guests.
Cocktail hour was probably our favorite to experience. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, especially since our bride and groom surprised their guests with mariachi to enjoy. It set the tone for how the rest of the party was going to be.
Our bride and groom were not finished yet. After everyone enjoyed some delicious food, it was time to really get the party started. Banda Potrillos opened up the dance floor and invited everyone to dance Everyone seemed so genuinely happy for Ramona and Jose.
We can't thank you enough for having us as part of your big day. Congratulations to our amazing beautiful couple and we wish you a lifetime of pure love as you embark on this wonderful journey!
