Wedding Guide Shoot

Well, I had the privilege of doing a photography shoot for the a href=”http://weddingguidechicago.com/”Wedding Guide/a this past fall. It was just released this past month, so I can officially blog about it. Yeah! This was so much fun b/c there was so many details, yet I could completely see this done at a wedding. That’s what I love about the a href=”http://weddingguidechicago.com/”Wedding Guide/a, I feel like it’s something my brides could actually use at their wedding. This shoot was no different!br /br /This time Laura from the a href=”http://weddingguidechicago.com”Wedding Guide/a was helped out by the amazing duo from a href=”http://tyingtheknot.biz”Tying the Knot/a, event planners Brooke and Christine. Everyone did such an amazing job, we got a 2 page spread in the magazine! The shoot took place at the lovely a href=”http://www.wildermansion.org”Wilder Mansion/a in Elmhurst. I was blown away by the place. It’s gorgeous! Here’a list of vendors that all participated to make this day awesome. br /br /Floral and Decor Design: a href=”www.phillips-flowers.com “Phillips Flowers/abr /Cake: a href=”http://www.tonisweets.com”Toni’s Sweets/a br /Invitations Placecards: a href=”http://tyingtheknot.biz/”Tying the Knot Wedding Consultants/a br /Linens, Tableware, Tables, Lounge Furniture, Bar and Barstools: a href=”http://chicago.classicpartyrentals.com”Classic Party Rentals/abr /Lighting: a href=”http://www.precisionsoundandlighting.com”Precision Sound and Lighting/a br /Popcorn: a href=”http://www.garrettpopcorn.com”Garrett Popcorn/a br /br /Look how great this turned out.
