Vilda and Brandon had a spectacular September day for their wedding at Meridian Banquets in Rolling Meadows, Illinois with photos at the Naperville Riverwalk.
We started out at the Renaissance Hotel in Schaumburg, Illinois with me covering bridal prep and second photographer Lauren with the groom and his crew.
As soon as the bride and groom were ready it was time for a series of “first looks” starting with the groom and then the bridesmaids with Dad later that day.
I’ve done plenty of first looks on wedding days and this was a good one with nice twirl of the bride courtesy of the groom. On the way to the bridesmaids reveal we did some portraits on the staircase at Renaissance Hotel in Schaumburg, Illinois.
The reception started early on the party bus as we made our way to the Naperville Riverwalk for beautiful, romantic wedding photos along with candid wedding photography as well.
After shooting some candid moments of the couple on the bench, Vilda announced that she wanted to jump from the bench. She is my kind of bride, let’s do it!! Soon we made our way back to the bus where we descended upon Meridian Banquet and Conference Center for the ceremony.
When we arrived back we snuck in a first look with Vilda’s Dad. Apparently Dad has not been reading too many wedding blogs on the internet as he was a bit puzzled by the whole “first look” thing. Once we got him in place, we had a fun reveal and then it was onto family photos and then the ceremony.
The ceremony room at Meridian Banquet and Conference Center had a glamorously lit curtain as a backdrop. After the ceremony we photographed the spectacular dessert table and then it was onto to introductions and the first dances.
This has merely been a sneak peek look at Vilda and Brandon’s September wedding at Meridian Banquets in Rolling meadows, Illinois along with photos from the Naperville Riverwalk with many more to come.
