The Allure is a wedding venue which is often described as "Hollywood glamour" and I always try to capture the majestic ballroom empty, but decorated in all it's glory. I know that Morganne became enamored with it's grandness, so I definitely made a point to sneak away from her getting ready photos to capture the room in a few wide shots before guests entered. Later in the day we also had her and Chris alone in the room for some romantic wedding pictures.
In the morning I spent time with the soon to be Mrs. Chambers and her bridesmaids capturing hair and make up by Sta Glam, bridal details and of course a good amount of goofing off. Second photographer Kerrie captured the guy's prep and Chicago Cubs jerseys.
I took Morganne and Chris and their wedding party out into the ballroom seperately for photos and then it was time for the ceremony.
I could very much tell that Morganne's Dad was very happy and proud to be the officiant for his daughter's wedding ceremony. He even took on shoe tying duties for the kids!! We made sure to get a portrait of him with the newly married couple signing their marriage license as their son gets a little sleepy eyed. :)
As guests enjoyed the cocktail hour, we made our way up to the ballroom for romantic couple's photos and we even ventured outside as the rain let up for some images at The Laporte Little Theatre Club.
Mini orange pumpkins were mixed with the purple reign of table decor at this Fall wedding. The tree bark added a nice Autumn touch as well. Soon it was time for dinner and first dances and then party time!
Chris had some challenges with the garter toss as friends blindfolded him and tied his hands. However, he proved his skills as the garter made it's way into the crowd of single guys.
