A Beautiful Quinceañera at Jennifer's Garden │ Morris, IL
This weekend we had the absolute pleasure of being able to be a part of a Quinceañera. A wonderful party that was full of some beautiful surprises and some firsts for us that we thought were some very cute touches.
Eliana got to live a beautiful dream accompanied by her friends and family and we couldn’t possibly think of any way her day could have gone better.
We started the day with pictures after the ceremony and got some amazing shots of Eliana by herself in the church. While doing so we were told there would be a surprise for our Quinceañera waiting outside.
We beat Eliana to the front of the church and we got to be able to photograph her surprised face as she saw her parents got her and her friends a limo! We met up with her and her court at one of our favorite places, Birdhaven Garden.
With all the flowers still in full bloom, we were able to capture lots of different colors that just served as the perfect accents to her and court and their dresses. We were lucky enough to also go to Jennifer’s Garden in Morris and get amazing shots.
Although we had a timeline before, we weren’t prepared to fully see what Eliana had in store once we got to the venue, although knowing she’s been dancing for naming years I don’t think it came as a shock to see such an amazing performance from her!
After Eliana had her Father's Daughter's dance she included a dance with her brother and then a dance with her best friend. We thought that was the cutest thing, it showed just how much they value their friendship.
Eliana and her court also had a surprise dance and of course, they ROCKED IT! we were just smiling from ear to ear. As photographers we enjoy being also in the moment with everyone else, we feel that at that moment we can really capture all the feels and we pride ourselves on that.
What we weren’t ready for that really almost brought tears to us was that Eliana put on a solo performance for her mom. It was inspiring and emotional and really made us feel that love between mother and daughter.
Every moment of that day was spectacular, from the beautiful dress to the amazing decorations at the venue. All her friends and family joined in on the dance floor and the rest of the night was truly a dream come true for this special Quinceañera.
May all of your other dreams come true Eliana!
