Elizabeth and Arik | Rainy & Romantic Chicago Wedding | St. Raphael the Archangel Catholic Church | Concorde Banquet Kildeer, IL | Naperville Wedding Photographer
I’m completely blown away by how beautiful and heartfelt Elizabeth and Arik’s wedding was. When I first met these two at Starbucks, I couldn’t keep my eyes off them. They are just that good looking and their warm energy and kind personalities lit up the room.
Rain was in the forecast all day, but everyone was still optimistic that we would get a break for some nice photos outdoors. Elizabeth and Arik’s ceremony was held at St. Raphael the Archangel Catholic Church, which was simply breathtaking. I had so much fun playing with Elizabeth’s veil in the wind for their bride and groom portraits in front of the church.
Elizabeth and Arik’s reception was full of emotion especially during speeches and first dances. Arik threw down some fly dance moves during their intros and garter toss. Everyone went bananas! I especially loved the money dance.
Elizabeth and Arik I can’t thank you enough for choosing me as your wedding photographer. I cannot wait to follow your journey as husband and wife. God bless you both!
