Ashley and Justin were married in a beach wedding ceremony in the garden at Whiting Lakefront Park. This beautiful location is right off the shores of Lake Michigan with the Chicago skyline able to be seen on clear days.
This beautiful summer wedding began at an area hotel with bridal prep. One of our flower girls was prepared for this sunny day with her Hollywood sunglasses!! Second photographer Bridget captured the guy's getting ready along with their superhero shirts exploding from their suits while I captured the bride and her mom illuminated by window light.
Before taking off for the shores of Lake Michigan and the beach wedding ceremony, the bride and groom had their first look / reveal at the hotel.
Whiting Lakefront Park has a beautiful garden area that overlooks the lake. The stone sidewalk enables the wedding party to elegantly walk out with full view of all of the guests. Just beyond the gazebo, the skyline of Chicago can be seen.
We took family wedding photos in the shade of the gazebo and of course then made our way all along the beach for wedding pictures with the entire wedding party and then romantic bride and groom pictures all along the shore of Lake Michigan.
Ashley and Justin's summer, beach themed wedding continued with dinner and dancing at Villa Cesare in Schererville, Indiana. The room had a wonderful beach colored glow to it as guests sang songs to the bride and groom to encourage them to kiss. The photo booth saw children of all ages getting into costume and a future Olympic gymnast took over the dance floor...
