A Fall Wedding at Rob Roy Golf Couse │ Prospect Heights, IL │ Wedding Photographer
What could be better than fall?
A fall-themed wedding that is! Such an amazing weekend we had with Griselda and Juan. Their story from the very start really showed us just how much of their personalities they incorporated into their special day.
Griselda and Juan’s story begins roughly around nine years ago when they both decided to give online dating a chance. To their surprise, they found each other’s profiles. A couple of messages led to a phone call, a phone call to many more and finally a decision was made to meet in person.
Seeing them together now we would have never guessed that they both were so incredibly nervous for their first date, but of course, we weren’t shocked to hear that they actually hit off right of the bat and immediately felt that connection that they felt by only listening to each other.
For a couple of years, they dated and got to know each other better, which now leads us to be here helping them retain memories of their special day!
We started off the day by arriving at Griselda’s and Juan’s home, though only Griselda was home while Juan was already at the venue awaiting her arrival for their “first look”.
Immediately while arranging her dress with her accessories and her bridesmaid's dresses we fell in love with how she tied the color we correlated fall with into her wedding, it made for a “perfect” feeling.
Her dress had just the perfect slit to show off that emphasized walk, the long sleeve made for that “perfect chill” vibe, and her hair was in an updo that perfectly brought out her personality. It truly just brought HER into everything and we were living in that moment for it!
Once we arrived at the venue it was no surprise to us that it was outdoors, not only was the day and time perfect for being outside but we knew from their questionnaire that while they each have their own hobbies, they do enjoy being in the outdoors, so the golf course was the “nail in the head.”
We loved the respected favor that both Griselda and Juan’s family followed, which was that all guests could, at the same time, take out their phones and snap their pictures and then to please silence and put them away. Not only was this an amazing gesture to avoid distraction but it made it for an intimate moment and we were able to fully capture the ceremony and guests.
After the ceremony, we all headed inside to really start the party! Of course, we had those emotional dance numbers, our bride and groom, and our bride with her parents.
The night ended with so much laughter, happy tears, and a lot of dancing. There were lots of glow sticks all over that we swore we were in a nightclub, a beautiful nightclub of course. Every bit of this wedding was amazing and we were so grateful to have been chosen to help out. A huge thank you and a big congratulations to our newlyweds!
