Thomas and Isela had a wonderfully bright and colorful Disney themed wedding at Villa Cesare and St. Ann’s Church. Our day started with bridal details as usual with the laughter and camaraderie and nervous jitters that the morning of weddings brings. We soon had a first look and then it was off to St. Ann’s Church for the Catholic ceremony.
Thomas closed his eyes as Isela approached from behind for their first look. It didn’t take long for the groom to give her a kiss.
The last time I’d photographed a wedding at St. Ann’s Church in Lansing, Illinois was for a bride named Michelle who went on to become a great friend to me. You can see her at the top of this Journal page for her Trash the Dress session. It was great to be back and this time capturing Isela’s big day. The Disney themed continued with the church pew decorations as well as the bubble machines when the happy couple exited the church. Chantal Wedding Planners were on hand doing the decorating and coordinating as well as Dixon Florist.
After photos inside the church it was off to Centennial Park and Villa Cesare for the party.
The Disney and Beauty and the Beast theme got kicked up another notch as we entered Villa Cesare where friends and family were waiting as well as a Mariachi band.
