Erin and Mason had an incredibly fun and elegant winter wedding at Chateau Bu-Sché in Alsip, Illinois with a church ceremony at Carmelite Fathers. Our day started with sisters and bridesmaid gifts during bridal prep along with some emotional moments with mom while getting into the dress.
Mason and the guys read motorsports magazines and had a few toasts during groom prep at a local hotel as second photographer Jaime captured the scene.
I loved the beaming smiles on Father and daughter while they came down the church aisle. I included two images in this sneak peak for those expressions, but also because I loved the proud look of Mom and Dad in the second image as they look at each other knowingly.
After the ceremony we did many family group pictures as well as wedding party and the newlyweds on the altar. We then headed outside for some winter wedding portraits on the grounds of Carmelite Shrine.
The reception was held at Chateau Bu-Sché in Alsip, Illinois and we had to do additional wedding pictures at this elegant Chicago wedding venue. The staircase near the entrance with grand chandeliers was a perfect place to start. Then it was onto the dramatic pillars at the entrance along with the picturesque bridge.
The wedding reception really started with second photographer Jaime covering the fun on the party bus and it carried on to the humorous speeches and soon…. the Village People would invade. Videographers Shutter and Sound Chicago swirled around them to film.
