“We had a wonderful time photographing Chip + Tina and documenting the two of them as they exchanged wedding vows. It was an amazing and memorable wedding day. Mother nature had her own plans for their atypical June wedding day. It was unfortunately record breaking hot and stormy with tornado warnings in the area on this Friday. None the less the celebration proceeded!
Nativity of Our Lord Parish. Unfortunately after a few extra hours in an unairconditioned trolley in bumper to bumper traffic ( and a few extra beers later ), Chip + TIna lost out on their original planned time for creative on location photos. : ( Yes the traffic, wind and stormy weather provided a serious detour in C+T’s plans, but their bridal party helped make the best of the stormy weather and kept Chip + Tina’s wedding day momentum going positive. ( We followed the trolley on the ride from Chicago to Addison. When the trolley pulled over half way through the detour for a quick break, everyone was so excited to see we had continued to follow the trolley through the storm … Snapping a few candid shots along the way, we captured a few fun ones such as of Tina outside of Taco Bell and the groom on the back of the trolley’s balcony. )
Venuti’s Banquets & Ristorante in Addison, ( yes a little late at 7:30 ) everyone was anxious to get the reception party started. The room was amazing! With Tina’s interior decorating and knowledge in making a room look spectacular, she created an gorgeous reception room with dashes of pink, many details, candles, romance and elegance.
