Megan and Alex | St. Haralambos Greek Orthodox Church Ceremony | Winnetka Community House Wedding | Winettka, IL
Engagement Session here
It was a gloomy and windy fall day with a sprinkle or two in the air. Megan and the girls got ready in her and Alex’s cozy new home in Chicago. The guys were at a hotel chillin’ with some tunes inside. I hadn’t seen her since last fall during their engagement shoot, so our excitement level was high.
Megan and Alex got married at St. Haralambos Greek Orthodox Church, which was a sight to remember. It was my first time documenting a Greek Orthodox ceremony and I hope to do more in the future, because it was a beautiful experience. After making things official we all headed to the lakefront in Winnetka, IL where the bridal party braved the bitter cold winds of lake Michigan. I’m so glad we did, because there’s just something about beaches and weddings that spell romance.
Smiles and tears filled the room at their Winnetka Community House reception. All of the emotions were flowing from their grand entrance, grandfather and granddaughter first dances to speeches. Oh and we can’t forget the traditional Syrtaki dance, which was so much fun to witness.
Megan and Alex, I can’t thank you enough for choosing me as your wedding and engagement photographer. This is only the beginning of your journey together and I wish you both all of the happiness in the world. God bless!
