Wedding day for Erica and Jonathan started out at the wonderful Radisson Hotel for getting ready with the bridesmaids, the ceremony and reception at The Croatian Center and wedding party pictures in downtown Crown Point.
I was a fly on the wall for hair and make up and even followed the girls to lunch at TJ Maloney's Authentic Irish Pub.
We took the girls and guys photos separately before the evening ceremony in the gazebo area of The Croatian Center. We finished up just as the rain started and the decision was made to move the ceremony inside.
If any law enforcement are reading this, I'd like to report some rogue wedding party members - the bouquet theif as seen above and the violent groomsmen roughing up the groom as seen below. General public - be on the lookout!!
Erica requested a "divider shot" before the ceremony and then it was time to walk down the aisle with family and friends looking on.
Erica and Jonathan had some great moment during their wedding ceremony. It started off with the flower girl abandoning her basket of flowers and one of the highlights (besides the first kiss) was the giving of flowers to moms and grandmothers in attendance.
After family photos, we jetted off to downtown Crown Point for some shots in the street - literally...
The reception saw dinner by Dimitri's Catering and showed off the green wedding colors. Team Bride ruled the dance floor!!
