Dynamic Wedding at Ivy Room
January 14, 2014 § 2 Comments
Ashlee and Nelson are dynamite!
We started our day at the Conrad hotel where the giddy couple dressed, posed in windows, and met for the first time. We then traveled to the Art Institute South garden and Lurie garden for portraits. Our goal with these photos was to capture the physical beauty of this couple, Nelson is a personal trainer, and their sense of humor, which they readily showed to us.
The ceremony was held in the courtyard at The Ivy Room. They flew in an Italian to officiate the ceremony. He pulled us aside before the ceremony and said “do a good job with them, they’re very special!” “Of course,” we replied, “they certainly are!” The ceremony was full of advice, gifts and great laughs. We were really thrown for a loop when he asked everyone in attendance to stand and circle the couple as he pronounced them. It was exciting for the couple, guests and also for us. When the unexpected happens, it’s very exciting for a photographer. We love seeing new things, inviting our eyes to play and our cameras to delight in the expressions of thought and joy. We were happy to capture this thrilling ceremony.
The night went late with dancing, toasts, food and conversation. We closed the night with a lovely goodnight kiss in the courtyard. Awwww…
Congratulations Ashlee and Nelson!
